Forest Park Trashed By Neglect
Forest park is a lovely and wonderful golf course that is being destroyed by the current management. There are greens that were severely damaged by vandals in golf carts in August that are still unrepaired. There are greens with alternate hole locations uncovered.
There are flagsticks that are worn out and can’t even stay in place.
Their is duck poop all over several greens that makes it impossible to putt. Why can’t this be cleared? There are no longer any tee markers on the course except for Hole 1.
They want to rake in the money yet make no effort to EDUCATE all the hordes of new golfers on how to help maintain a golf course. The number of unsightly ball marks on every green is really sad. They need to inform golfers to repair ball marks and divots.
The city needs to address all these issues with the management or find a better more capable team to run this and other city courses. It’s a shame because this course is an 1896 jewel.
Golfing At Forest Park in Cold Weather
Fairly challenging course. The lack markers to indicate the distances on where your golf ball is to the green/pin.
Used to play Forest quite often. First time in 2020. The course is still in great shape. Almost all the greens were excellent, except for 2. Some idiots decided to do donuts on them with the cart or an atv. No problems with the fairways. Only complaint would be some tee boxes are just dirt. Overall still a great deal and a fun course that makes you utilize all the clubs in your bag. Will play here again.
The only reason I didn't give excellent for overall is you don't get wow'd by the course.
It's fun, challenging, well maintained and the closest course to Manhattan. Even when my game was disappointing, the course wasn't
It's worth the trip
The course was damaged by ATV riders that somehow got on the course. I was not informed how bad the greens were and the Tee boxes. The amount of damage made some of the greens unplayable.
All I ask is the course give you the option/Information about the condition.
The course condition was not so good and wet. However, the location of the course is very good for us. We just took about 15 minutes to get there from home. .
I love playing here. Even though is challenging, it is a great course. Has never disappointed me. Unfortunately some A-holes decided to sneak in at night or something In a motorcycle and drove all over the greens. Smfh. Unbelievable. Why would someone do such thing!!!! Just classless. Otherwise great place. Hopefully somehow someway these motorcycle tracks disappear. But it sure looks like no easy task.
Good city course
Limited amenities. cafe not opened but food and drinks through window. No Beer cart. Traffic from city might be tough depending on day and time. Some Tee area had no grass. Overall, good experience.
