Great course in the area.

I love the course. The greens are about 85-90 back in. They take really good care of it and it’s a great value for the money.

Great Day

Enjoyed the day as well as the golf! Staff was friendly and attentive. Course was in great shape for all the rain we have had recently. Sand looked in a great shape but I was glad I never had to actually experience hitting out of them! I had a lot of fun and will definitely come back after aerated greens have healed up!

Tough well kept course!

Very nice golf course with tough water lined fairways and greens. Staff was super friendly and never pushy! Lots of rain but greens were fast and clean no complaints. I would suggest mosquito spray, but all in all a great place to chase balls!

I always enjoy playing this course. Today unfortunately I was eaten alive by mesquites but we weathered on and finished our game. I will always come back here.

I’ve been playing BF for years. It is the best course for the money any where in the Bay Area. The staff is great, the Marshall’s are always nice and do a great job. They try hard to keep the course in good shape and the range is way above average. Can’t go wrong playing BF.

Still Best Course for the Money

This course continues to be the best value in the Houston area. I play a lot of different courses through GolfNow and Bayforest rarely disappoints. Sometimes the pace of play can be brutal because of hacks not letting people play through. I suppose that's any course though. This place just seems to attract more of them.

BEST public course in the Houston area

Great layout, course in great shape, fairways are green and lots of grass. Lots of water, but fair. Greens are in great shape after a hard freeze in February. Great value for the cost.

Greens are work in progress

Bay Forest usually has very good greens. Right now they’re working on them & in the difficult period between winter & spring. I’m sure they’ll be good again in a couple weeks.

Dispite all the rain we had over the pass days the course was playable. Always a great course to play no matter the conditions. The starter entertained us while waiting which was pretty cool. Highly recommend course.

Always a pleasure to play

I have to say that I have now played this course a couple dozen times, and it never seems to get old. The course layout is challenging, and hole, and tee box placement change regularly .........which is great.

The speed of play is always good (less than 4 hours), and the pro shop staff, as well as the starters are always friendly.
