lovely little gem

having not been here in about 15 yrs, it was a round of nostalgia for my playing partner and i. was not disappointed. there are some holes with sprawling fairways to boom the driver, and then others with OOB either one side or the other, or both, to make you think twice. par 3s are some long some short. greens were in good condition and receptive to approach shots. hollow tined about 2 weeks ago, and healed well. some tee boxes were a bit shabby, but these were one over shadowed by large trees too.

Forrester Park

Pretty parkland course hidden away amongst the better known courses in the area. Friendly welcoming atmosphere and staff and a lovely old clubhouse building.

Very quiet out on the course both in terms of numbers of players and any ambient noise. which made the round a very pleasant experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our round and will be back again am sure.

great condition

First time played this year due to covid, course in super condition now. Greens receptive and reasonably fast, fairways slightly lush, but still a little bounce and roll. Only minus is bunkers but that's the same everywhere with no rakes, still managed two sand saves despite. Staff and greenkeepers all friendly and courteous while playing. Well worth a visit .

Good course to practice on

Overall good short course. Lots of mid iron par 4s (260-330 yards) and some short par 5s.
The course map is on the back of the card...and it is needed.
Great use of trees and some good use of space.
Some respectful members let me through at the earliest opportunity. Then another pair of members held me up for 4 holes before letting me through.

Very poor tee boxes.

Over all the course was in quite good condition but it does have a wierd layout and some very wierd holes.
The tee boxes were its real downfall, very uneven, grass was way too long, like hitting out of the rough and some of them barely had any grass at all! Just loose soil!

Matured over the years

First visit here for a long, long time. Matured nicely since adding the extra nine holes a while back. But still a little confusing with blind shots a plenty, giving the impression the course has fit into a space slightly too small. Greens in good condition but the tee boxes were disappointing, needed mowing and were somewhat in a mess.
Overall though, decent value for money.

Definitely playing here again

Great course with several distinctive sections, very pretty course, a hidden gem considering some bigger named courses close by, but definitely give this place a shot, a course to test your accuracy and iron game.
