Winter golf

For winter golf (if I was home I would be ice fishing) it was very nice. Three course was in better shape than i expected. Greens we're fine for winter, fairways were dormat and tight, it's January. For the price it was a nice day. Staff was friendly, I really enjoyed the layout. I wonder what shape the course is during prime season, I have no clue.

Best The Greens Have Been In A Long Time

Course has done a lot of work on the greens, and it showed. A little faster than when previously played, but rolled good and true. Pace of play can be hit or miss depending on what time you get out, but definitely worth money.

Not in Good shape

I usually don’t give bad reviews, but people should be aware that this course really isn’t in any type of shape to be playing. Not a single green was in even passable shape. The fairways were unkept as well. Best thing was the cheeseburger that I grabbed at the turn (links course so i cut over at 3).

Just be aware that even $30 isn’t worth it.

Neighborhood Cohrse

I have played here many times and each time I have noticed small improvements around the course. Overall the course is in good condition but on this date many of the green were not in good condition with many bad/bare spots on them. Hole #17, a par 3, was closed because the green was unplayable.

Golf course going down hill

Greens are terrible. Fairways have slacked. Tee boxes hardly have any grass to hit from. Not worth the money they charge or the time to play. Go play somewhere else until they get this course back in shape. Hard to imagine a resident playing here after paying expensive HOA fees for nothing.

Poor greens

As a current resident in Lake Forest, it’s sad to show my current HOA fees can’t keep grass on the greens or tee boxes. Course has fallen off and not showing any progress. Would love to play hole 17 but doesn’t seem like it will be any time soon. Overall not worth the money and would recommend playing elsewhere

Greens are Horrible

This course has really fallen off. The greens are in terrible condition. Multiple tee boxes are lacking any grass whatsoever. Their signature #17 hole is completely closed. This course is not worth more than $15-20 max with cart, not in its current state.
