Needs some work
This has been an issue with this course for a few years now, fairways aren't good, but greens are kept well and pretty difficult to read. Lots of changes in direction, and change in slopes.
Course amenities are pretty much non existent, no bag guys present, no rangers, small little snack bar. If you can get the HOT DEAL, it's worth the price, if not, way to much for this course. Hopefully rumor of them closing and building there aren't true, and they put some money into fairways.
Cheap but challenging. Greens are in good condition. Super laid back and always a good time.
Cheap & Challenging
Play here regularly because it’s the best bang for your buck. Very laid back and greens are always in good condition
Challenging golf course
Always professional & friendly staff, fun day of golf as always very challenging. Greens a little slow today cause of wet conditions . Pace of play very good. Best price in Palm Beach County with the lowest green fee price. Golf course layout is tight but fair , for all types of golfers for you to challenge the course. Enjoy & have fun.
Typically, with higher rates in affect, the course should be in the best shape it can be. That’s not the case right now. I played Forest Oaks numerous times over the summer and the course was in better shape then than it is today. Extremely sandy tee boxes with some greens being more “rough” than others (Pardon the pun).
Today is also, oddly enough, the pace wasn’t terrible. I had basically nobody in front of us and as we left, it looks like one group was on 1’s green, one was in the fairway, one was on the tee, and another behind the tee waiting. It gets VERY slow here so be cautious.
Short, but tricky!
The course is barely 5,900 yards, but has a some tricky holes. The fairways are somewhat narrow. There are a fair number of water hazards, sometime both right and left.
The greens were slow, but in very good shape. Too bad the fairways and tee boxes were a little less cared for. Still a fun round overall.
