Fun course

The course was in very good shape considering the time of year. Greens are fast but fair, staff was extremely helpful. Had a great round.

Fairway conditions are not that great unfortunately

The fairways are are looking bad (I've seen better days at FC) and seems they are not being worked on or treated. Greens and tee boxes are great as usual but please put some work in on the fairways and even near the green, some spots are very thin and bare so its difficult to chip. Sand traps could improve too, some holes the sand is very hard and not soft. Overall, still a great course and staff are always friendly but please work on the fairways.

Challenging Round

Kudos to the Course Marshall - he was friendly.at all times, visible throughout the round - and most importantly, enforced the pace of play. I was playing as part of a twosome paired with two golfers we did not know. At some point mid-round, we were behind by 8 minutes behind. The Marshall respectfully nudged us to pick up the pace .

There were some wet/muddy spots on the course that did not appear to be weather related.

Brutal Pace of Play

I showed up 30 minutes before my 10:50 am tee time yesterday and was told that there was a delayed start due to morning frost. I only teed off at 11:50 am (an hour after I was supposed to play) and there was such a build up of golfers that the pace of play was unbearable, waiting 15 minutes at each hole for the teebox to free up. If you are going to delay tee times by an hour and have the course this backed up, a phone call or text would have been great. Wouldn't have wasted my Sunday like this if I had known.

A nice course for the money

The course was in very nice shape, especially for this time of year and one day after a heavy rain. It was our first time playing here, and we enjoyed it. It's a nice touch to get a sleeve of balls and a coupon for a free hot dog/sausage wrap and draft beer at the snack bar. I will come back again for sure.

Golfer

It’s always a pleasure to play at Forest Creek. I play there at least once a month and would more often but I have to drive across Austin to get there, at least 45 minutes. Course and greens always in great shape. Fun to play yet challenging

Golf shop and grill staff couldn’t be nicer, always a smile and helpful.

Revisiting Forest Creek

It had been about 7 years since I last visiting Forest Creek, but finally got back out for a pre-Thanksgiving round.

I heard they had made some upgrades to the course, and it showed. The practice areas are quite nice and very above average... really one of the better setups in town.

The landscaped areas throughout the course were also very pleasant and conditions were quite good. The greens definitely had a little heat in them!

The layout remains as quirky as I'd remembered. The tree on number 2 continues to haunt me. It was a pretty windy day, but it seemed like 7 and 9 were the only holes downwind... and of course that just makes those drives even trickier!

I gotta give it up... since my last visit my two biggest complaints (pace of play and friendliness of the staff) were more than resolved. Even on a crowded day we got around in just over 4 hrs and the staff was super friendly. I should find my way back in less than 7 years... and so should you!
