Lovely open course
I like this course. It's not too long and quite open, with good greens and bunkers. On the day I played, the pace of play was very slow, due to a lot of four-balls. With the hotel packages on offer, it's a popular venue for Golf Societies, so, for a fast round, it's worth checking beforehand whether it's a society day.
5 hour + round
Our round was frustrated by three four balls who refused to call through. It appears that they were Club members playing in a swindle. Ourselves and the visitors playing in front of us will not be back, which is a shame as the clubhouse provided good food and service and the course had some interesting holes.
No wind very warm but very scenic courses with interesting undulating fairways and lots of run on the ball Greens slightly slower than expected but think there had been some rain overnight but still provided a good challenge with contours and pin positions
Great course, great value, beautiful surroundings. Really enjoyed it.
The course was looking good
Good all round upkeep at the course. Greens - very good. Tee boxes overall good. Fairway - good. Bunkers (unfortunately I tested a few of them) good.

A fantastic course. Well kept and the greens were in fantastic condition with lovely rolls. Hired a buggy which was expensive at £30 as most range from 20 to 25. Had a pint in the club house before heading home.
My 3rd round at Forest of Dean and haven't been disappointed with any of them. A well laid out and well tended course that doesn't punish wayward shots too harshly, well not on most holes. Only slight negative was the greens, which seemed to have too much grass on them, making it difficult to judge pace.
Well kept, windy course
Enjoyed this open course. No player pressure. Generous fairways and no real rough. Greens seemed slow, but that may just be my putting.
Really nice cause well presented and nicely kept. Fast greens well maintained from diverts
Booked this course on a hot deal, and for what we paid, it couldn't be faulted. Some nice holes, greens in reasonable condition, fairways not the best but perfectly adequate. Wasn't too busy and got around in good time. Excellent course to walk, no buggy needed. Will definitely play again.
Great deal as usual, business model is cheap deals keeping course busy downside is bit of a procession round , par 5 we were one group of 4 playing on same hole,, waiting on almost all holes. Temp tees all round but all greens open. Signage could be better in particular coming off 9th trying find 10th fortunately played last year so knew where this temp tee box was about 80 yards further back . Overall if played before you know what to expect. Staff were very friendly and good facilities for drink and meal after.
Lovely course but waterlogged
This course is a lovely course and the staff are very friendly. The only thing stopping me giving was a couple of holes being a bit boggy due to a week of rain previously. I will be back in the summer to sample it in the proper conditions.
A Little Soggy
Enjoyed playing course albeit after a few days or rain. About 5 challenging holes otherwise not that interesting.
Off course hotel bar was a kids playground. There is nothing worse that wrecking your eardrums through the uncontrolled screaming of a herd of someone else’s children.
Will play the course again later in the year.
Il start of by saying Iv never been one for doing a review especially a bad review.
4 hours 1 golfer plus a buggy!
I started the 2nd hole behind 3 groups 3rd hole had two groups of 4 waiting. Won’t be coming back again
Turned up and it was clear, they had overbooked.
By the time my 12.15 tee time came around there were still 4 buggies on the tee and all 4 balls.
I left at 12.35 without hitting a ball as i could see a 5 hour round otherwise
Really enjoyed the course. Fairways and greens in good condition. Pace of play was excellent - no delays. Food and beer was pricey- £5.50 for a pint of Stella Artois and £13.50 for a burger.
