Harder than Expected

1st playing this course, In excellent condition with superb greens. A mixture of Links and Parkland and some of the walks on the Fairways can be a challenge to the Calf's. Would definitely play again

Forfar

The whole experience of playing here was soured by a four ball of members playing a medal round on front of us who were extremely slow and seemed to resent the fact that we were there at all. One in particular went out of his way to trail behind his partners and take every opportunity to slow play down. One example being where he teed off first, waited till the others played before putting his club away and was thirty yards behind them before he started to move away from the tee.

Should be good for summer 2023

The course is currently undergoing extensive renovation. Some holes are unplayable, new holes have been added (2 holes created from 1 original fairway, etc). Kinda difficult to navigate right now, especially if you use an electronic GPS device. The holes in play were good.

Mats are in use just now to protect the fairways. If you want to avoid buying one, at 5 quid each, bring one with you.

The guy in the pro shop was very helpful.

I guess by summer 2023 the work will be completed. Should be worth a visit then.

Ups and downs

Chose wrong course for my fitness level, very hilly and didn’t enjoy the cross fairway humps that are on most of the holes.
Course was still in part winter layout, which I didn’t expect having called too check in advance.
Beautiful views that I enjoyed

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
