Good day!

Always enjoy Lake Forest. Greens rough and slow today...perhaps due to end-of-season changes.

Big slowdown!

On a busy Friday afternoon, for whatever reason, a 6-person scramble was allowed by course management to play and hold up everyone on the back nine...not good.

Nice layout

Fun, short course with varying elevation changes. The greens are in good condition overall. Fairways are also in good condition. The course was a little damp, which is understandable considering the area's rainfall recently. It was a nice change from other courses that the bermuda rough was actually long enough to allow the ball to settle and offer a penalty from the fairway lie. This was my first time playing this course but I'll definitely make the 1.5 hour drive to return again. The Par-3's are some of the best around the area.

Enjoyed the round!

Especially enjoyed the topography...much different than the flat-land courses we usually play, Tees and fairways in great shape. Unfortunately, the greens need work. All-in-all, a good day. I would definitely go back...but in cooler weather!

Green conditions

overall the course was in good condition. the only issue was that the greens had recently been aerated and sand filled. this was not mentioned when checking in. the surface was extremely rough making for difficult conditions. would have probably gone somewhere else. usually the course is in decent condition.

Good value

Great value course for a beginner like me. Carts and layout are prefectly fine, tees are well maintained. Putting greens are honestly rough. It was more sand than grass, and really required over hitting to get it to go anywhere
