Great executive course

FOS is a great place to work on your short game and still has 6 holes that allow you to use driver. It’s especially nice at this time of year because there’s plenty of shade. The greens are in good shape but the fairways and rough have very wet areas. It’s clear that the watering system is in trouble. It would be helpful to have the really wet areas roped off because we seemed to be in standing water a few times before I realized that I should not be taking a cart through. In spite of it all, still had a great morning!

A nice Sunday morning

The course has a watering problem so there are some very wet areas. Greens are in good condition but the pin placements are tough.
The day was great and and the company was better than my game today.

Great exec length track

FOS is a great course if you are looking for an executive length layout. The fairways and greens are in top condition and the pace of play is brisk. Even higher skilled players will enjoy several challenging par 3 holes with a lot of opportunity to work on their iron game.

Fully recommend!
