Very open course

Not a good day to review any course, it was a strong wndy day, brake failed on my trolley, it was getting blown about, tipped over a couple of times, better to discard the star rating.

Disgraceful

Booked Forfar as a last minute 4 ball booking as we were up in the area. Arrived to learn winter tees, winter greens and fairway mats. Never bothered to get the clubs out boot. Have no issue with Forfar Golf Club but had no indication of play restrictions when booking on Golf Now.

Round at Forfar

I enjoyed playing Forfar. The course was in excellent condition and i would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
The only issue I had was that it took me 3 and a half hours to play as a single. This was due to the course being busy.

Forfar

The green keeper should pay attention to pace of play and some of the bunkers and not the tees I played off and if he cares so much about what tees people off then maybe the 4 ball in front of me play off as far forward as possible then for 7 holes it wouldn’t take 2 hours

Bumpy but Brilliant

Excellent little course with plenty of history. Took the wife with me to caddy who insisted we get a buggy, which whilst good fun I'd probably walk the course next time. Nearly all the fairways are very undulating due to the site historically being used to grow flax prior to Old Tom Morris' converting it into an 18 hole course (I believe it is the 4th oldest 18 hole in the world and the first that was designed as an 18 from conception). Plenty of very interesting holes with a few blind tee shots and approaches. Greens were a little slow the day I played but still rolled true.

I managed to grab a deal on Golf Now for only £28.99 which is great value for money, the buggy cost more than the round at 30 quid! Even if you pay the standard high season rate (£45 at time of writing I believe), this is still well worth it. I'd certainly recommend a visit if in the area!

Well worth playing

Played a 4 ball here and the course was in great condition, greens really fast and true. Staff were brilliant talking us through the course, the history and we spoke about other courses in the area worth playing. We wanted to eat at the club but the facilities didnt start till 11am hence the 3 stars for that area.

Loved it and will be back

Perfect weather
Walked

Go and play

First time playing the course. A very friendly welcome and an excellent clubhouse. The course was a traditional layout which required some thinking off the tees. Greens were great given the traffic of the previous day.

Would thoroughly recommend a game here.

Playing golf steeped in history

Having just played Golf at Forfar Golf club I would encourage everyone to go dip their toe into Golf history they will not be disappointed, the course maybe 150 years old but it is in fantastic condition.

Golfing gem

Played this not expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.
I have paid a lot more for so called better courses and not felt that I got value for money.
This course though is well worth it and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to reccommend it as a good place to visit. A warm welcome will await you based on my experieance there.
Not the longest of courses if your a big hitter but you will not be disappointed in the quality and condition of the course.
