Always a fun round

I always look forward to playing here. I seem to perform my best on this course. But the greens were terribly slow yesterday. That is the only criticism. I do appreciate their attention to the changing weather and leaving the course open to continue play once the torrential rain moved through. They did a great job drawing the line between thunder and lightning in keeping the course open.

Improvement

Greens are in better shape. Need to be mowed now that they have grown nicely. Super slow.

Newer players need to be educated by the course management in repairing ball marks, fixing divots, and where to park carts. Make the effort hand players a flyer with simple bullet points. Otherwise the course will be In bad shape by mid July. And please can u open up some holes on the practice green??? Jeez.

Well Maintained NYC Course

Given the state of some of the public NYC courses this year, I was pleasantly surprised by Forest Park. Fairways were well maintained as well as the greens. There is evidence of some damage that was done during the pandemic, but for the most part, the greens were running well without too many barren spots. Tee boxes need work, but again, it's a public NYC course so there's only so much they can do given their budgets.

Very tight course with players unfamiliar with rules. Hitting up, not calling out 4, etc.
Holiday weekend, so, to be expected!

Pricey for what it is

Although today it was in the best shape I’ve seen it in a long time, there are still a handful of tee boxes that are in horrible shape, it’s basically dirt.
Otherwise, as one would expect on a holiday weekend, pace of play was super slow.

Weekend Carts Only

Forest Park is a good golf course , good layout and they seem to have figured out how to speed up the greens a little. .
We played on Sunday morning, and paid for a cart , I recommend on the weekends anyway that it is golf cart only for everyone because the guys walking slow down the rounds .
It's the only fault I have with the city courses , is the pace of play , otherwise it would get 5 stars .
