Challenging short course

Course is normally challenging, but because of the extensive construction, temporary tees are being used on most of the back nine. Course will be fun to play once the sod takes root. Sad to see the ninth hole was shortened so much.

Challenging course

Back nine undergoing extensive renovations and temporary greens in play. Ninth hole was extensively shortened. But still a good place to practice irons and putting.

Short course

I have played Forge Pond several times before, but not in a few years. I didn’t recall how many short yardage holes they have, nor the very narrow fairways on most holes. One of the better holes, hole #9, for some reason was cut in half in yardage, which made no sense to me, since the old fairway was nice. If you don’t mind losing a good amount of balls, though a short course, they keep it in good condition.

All the people who work there make the round even better. They are friendly and a pleasure to talk with while waiting for my tee time.
The course is in excellent shape so the grounds crew needs a pat on the back also.
Love the course.

It's a great course for training your short game.

The course is narrow, sometimes difficult, and loaded with 3 pars. You will lose a lot of balls and 3-putt all day. It's more of a glorified pitch and putt. That being said, it's a quick, quiet, fun, course, that is great for improving your short game, because it's not forgiving and you never feel rushed. Just bring extra balls, and wedges.

Excellent all around

I brought my nephew there for the first time.We were booked as a threesome, but added a fourth without notifying the course. At first they said they couldn't fit us, but after some discussion, the starter found a way to get all of is on time. Thanks again to those working at the course and saving our day!!
