Nice local course

Play was slow because course was busy. First time in five years playing and course was in decent shape, so really dry areas causing balls to bounce out of bound's.

Perfect weather
Used cart

Forest Park Golf

Lots of golfers and the rate is fair at Forest Park. Course was in decent shape. The cart paths are in bad shape with lots of deep ruts. The weather was gorgeous so we were happy to get outside and play.

Always decent

Play here about once a week. Municipal Course. The course is always in decent condition probably 7.5/10. Most course issues are from idiot golfers who like the lower price point.

Major issue is they have like 7 mins between tee times. Been times (Busy weekends/holidays) where there are multiple groups sitting at a tee box. Some due to the timing and some due to slow play.

I would recommend for sure unless you are going at 10-2pm on a holiday or busy weekend

Wet

The course was super wet, but it is March, so it’s expected. Staff was outstanding. Course really needs some sort of warm up area other than the putting green.

Nice course

It’s a nice course. Very easy to navigate and very well kept. I accidentally plunked a goose out there. Luckily it was ok and just shook it off. Just keep that in mind tho as there are MANY geese out there. Other than that it was a good time and I’ll definitely be returning there…

Great course for the price

First time at this course and we have a great time. The course presented several challenges. Open in the front 9, on the back 9. Definitely hit the ball straight. Wasn’t thrilled about the course amenities but the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming and that made up for everything else. We will be back
