Challenging and fun

Great course layout! Love the difficulty and greens were in great shape considering its winter. They were a little sandy but that is to be expected this time of year.

Good course

Greens were pretty rough, unexpectedly. Usually good but not good right now. Pace of play pretty rough which is usually since nobody manages the tee times. I usually play the River Club which is a lot better. Forest Hills will work if you just need to get a round in.

it's a tough course and the greens are challenging to say the least, a small mistake you'll pay big as you go along.

Did not play

Made mistake and ended up with prepaid booking instead of my usual “pay at the counter”which was about $250 for the foursome and unfortunately pulled my back on thanksgiving and couldn’t play and that’s when I realized the prepaid status was non refundable. Still being a nice guy I called the course and told them I we would not be there. Live and learn eh.
But will be back there to play another time as I love the course. Just will not “pre-pay”

Look for other options first

They do 8 minute tee times. Expect nothing less then 5 hours plus
Never saw a beverage cart the entire time. Pack like you are going camping because you will be out there all day.

Nice place but Sloooowww pace

Had a fun day until I caught the slowest group ever. Literally, there were six groups bunched up behind them. two waiting on the tee box and three on the hole behind them. I ended up just jumping back to the front nine to finish my round. really sucked that the only time I actually got a cart that I was just sitting in it waiting for some farts to spend 15 min on each green.
Now for the good... The front nine is in great shape! the new concrete paths and layouts were pristine. Cant wait to see how the back nine turns out.

Course was great, my game, not so much LOL

Frequent this course when I can. Course was in great shape, especially for this time of year. I played like garbage, lol, but a bad day of golf beats a good day at work.

Nice Fall Day for golf

Course is in good shape. New cart path layout on front 9 makes sense and helps with pace of play. Greens seem to be getting back to Forest Hill standards.

Staff was able to accommodate a later tee start due an unplanned personal conflict with my original tee time.

Cart Paths Finished

Last time I played here the cart paths were being paved,so there were several detours to get around the work being done. They’re now finished and in great condition! Like the simplicity of this course. I’m a terrible golfer, but rarely lose any balls on this course. Weather was awesome on this day!
