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
Very well kept course. I was expecting dead greens and rough fairways for the price, but that was not the case. It was well kept and played well. There were a couple groups of 4somes in front of us that slowed us down but besides that very good time.
Great Golf Course!
I had a great time playing this course. Weather conditions were perfect for golf. Pretty landscape and great layout. Whole course was well maintained, with the exception of geese leaving gifts on a tee box. Fair share of dog legs, some hilly fairways, and elevated tee boxes with nice views. I got my first hole-in-one on 8, but didn’t know I was supposed to tell them. I drove an hour and a half to get there, but I will definitely come back!
Bad day at golf still beats a good day at work
Enjoy playing this course like the terrain on back 9 . Greens are in good shape
Overall great course. The grounds/greens are always well kept. No marshal but people are aware of their pace of play and have always been happy to let others play through. Overall a good and challenging course I come back to weekly.
As great as I remembered it!
I moved out of the area over 20 years ago and this was my first time back to Forest Park. I must say it was just as nice as I remembered it! A very nice layout and very well maintained. Really enjoyed it!
Nice course in great shape
Love this course and good value with twightlight rate.
Nice Park District Muni
See my previous reviews below. Always enjoy visiting Forest Park once a year after playing Creekside (the other Valpo muni) in the morning with my Golfvisions players pass. Forest Park has a really cool old school back nine that I find really enjoyable. Front nine more modern 60'sish and first two holes of the course provides a challenging start. Noticed they have warm up nets this year (no range) Course settles down on the front until the 9th hole which has an extremely tight tee shot. The back nine starts out with two long par 3's....the 11th is a wonder.....and you also get nice elevated tee shots on 12, 13 and 15. Definitely worth a play...folks are friendly $5 draft beer/dog at t
urn. $25-$30 value. Greens were in decent shape (slower than Creekside).
Always a fun play
Read my previous reviews for more info. Greens were a tad bumpy this day....a bit wet with lots of footprints. A really cool old school back nine which is very tight and very sporty. I enjoy this place.....fun to play at least one a year. An interesting routing, decent beverage prices, nice folks. What more could you ask? 3.5 stars - $30 value.
Real bang for your buck
Course overall was really beautiful and fun to play.
Greens were kept up pretty well and fairways were marked clearly for the most part.
$32 with a cart... Can't beat that.
Cons: Golf Cart 14 takes about 10 seconds to start moving
Tee boxes weren't in the best shape with un fixed divots but to be fair we haven't had alot of rain
We also got a complaint by a group of 2 that we were taking to long however, if the guy who drove out to find us did the math we were actually on schedule and could have saved himself the confrontation.
The fairways are very narrow in the wrong places. We have not had rain in the last few days, however, no lawn mowers seem to have been on the course. Every ball that was even a yard into the rough took way to long to find.
