Beautiful Layout, Rough Greens

Beautiful day, beautiful course, bumpy and uneven greens. I suspect the locals are abusing the course and it is tough to keep in decent shape.

A good walk mostly UPHILL.

A scenic track but a challenging walk for a senior.

Course could use more sand in their sand traps IMHO.

Great Muni in Hamilton

Kings Forest is always a challenge and fun to play but would say this isn't the place for beginners. It requires solid ball striking throughout. Considering the lousy Spring we have had, the course was in good condition especially the greens. Rakes were available in the traps but the standard practice of people not raking traps after use was evident. Only complaint I have is they had 3-4 holes where the regular tee blocks were being renovated and we weren't advised before we booked.

Love at first sight

I liked the course as it has very good layout, moderate to high level of difficulty, fairway surrounded by lot of trees, fairways with high and low elevations, friendly staff at both pro shop and starting point. I would love to play again on this course.

However, this time, due to rain effects the fairways were very wet and no carts were allowed on front- nine. I hope next time I will use the cart for all 18 holes.

I highly recommend this golf course, you will enjoy.
