I really enjoy Forest Glen. Beautiful community course. Lush landscaping and well maintained overall. Plays small and narrow in spots with one quirk being a couple of large sandy yet stony pathways considered in play. Lots of deer, herons and rabbits. Snakes too but no sign of gators. Recommended.

Booked through Golfnow. Only able to play 9 holes because of weather. Refused to let us have a rain check for nine holes because they insist they get nothing from GolfNow. Then they shouldn’t work with GolfNow. It’s not my fault they have a deal with GolfNow. I would have liked to play another nine holes another day. It would not have hurt them to issue a rain check.

The course had an aeration a few days before I played. Greens were recovering.. Also, several fairways had large numbers of areas under repair.

Bring your own GPS as there is no on board GPS on the cart.

Water and sand hazards are abundant and in play on every hole. Additionally, fairways are bordered by dense plantings that combine to put a premium on shot placement and accuracy.

Wildlife sightings may include deer, gators,.large raptors, a bear or crows that will eat your snack.

Forest. Glen is a must play for visitors to Naples.

I just cannot understand how they could have such nasty surly men working the bad drop.

if they just don't want women coming to the course then they need to put up a big sign that says men and Members Only. I have been to this course four times now... Due to the location and the beauty of the course and layout, I keep coming back expecting different results. If you can get past The bag drop and out onto the course you will not be disappointed. 96 degrees today , and we watched the bag guy take the cooler off our cart and replace it with sand. All the other carts going out had ice and water.

I live in Cincinnati and was on vacation with my wife. We made a bathroom stop in Venice on the way to Naples and my brother and wife from Detroit were sitting in the McDonalds where we stopped!! We had no idea they were vacationing as well. So, we played Forest Glen. I was able to use Golf Now to purchase the tee time very reasonably. We had a great afternoon on a beautiful course. What a nice surprise!

If it wasn't for the beauty of the course itself, I would never go back there. The staff at the bag drop make you keenly aware that you are not welcome as a guest. This was my third experience there and the staff are the same each time.

Challenging but fair layout. Well positioned bunkers tough greens. They were not as fast as they probably are in prime season. Long cart rides between holes. Water and bathrooms are well postioned. Enjoyed my round.

This is the sixth or seventh time we’ve played Forest Glen and it is always a joy.

The course was in great condition and the greens were very true. Whenever we visit Naples we try to play here and we’re never disappointed.
