Course was in great condition. Greens firm, fairways smooth. Course was in in great condition overall.

The course is very up and down ( hilly), has good turns and can be challenging if you are not very accurate off the box.

Bring the first time I played the course I wasn’t familiar with the layout. Very small course layout on score card, but hard to read.

The staff was friendly and the Marshall was making consistent rounds to make sure pace was being upheld.

Great course for the cost.

Love the layout, staff were friendly. They spent a lot of money to redo the course. It would be a 5 but not until next year when the greens are better. They are so hard they can’t hold a shot to the front of the green without running off the back. It was a great day, just frustrating to play bogie golf because of the greens. I feel like I’m being picky, but I won’t pay $70 for frustrating greens when there are plenty of courses for $55-$60 that have amazing greens. I’ll be back but maybe in the fall.

Played Friday afternoon expecting to be busy and it was. Pace of play was terrible as it took over 5 hours to play. There was a twosome that was holding up some foursomes and the Marshall never spend anyone up. As for the course, it will grow in better when it gets hotter. Greens and tees were in good shape. Consider increasing prices to reduce traffic, increase pace of play, and not have the course torn up.

Since they have ponds overflowing and appear to be going to use recycle water. When are they going to use the water? It is a dusty goat track right now but the goats will have to eat the fringes on the greens or the trees. No fairway grass at all. I should have brought a mat from home.

The Good (and there is a lot) - This was the first time at Forest Creek. Every one of the staff was helpful and attentive; From the check-in staff to the rangers who were on the course constantly to keep pace of play moving.

The course itself is one of the most fun I have found in the area; there are a number of holes that are just evil, in a fun and challenging way. If driver is your favorite club this course will take you to task. This is a thinking course. There are a number of doglegs that demand you hit less than 200 and hazards are strategically located to make you lay up or pay the price. The greens are challenging, filled with undulation, and FAST. There are plenty of opportunities to go for birdie, but there are some holes, 9 and 16 come to mind, where the smart play is to take your par and move on.

It is said little things make a big difference. I was impressed by the attention to the little conveniences that a lot of courses don't attend to like the ball washers, which all had water and soap in them .

There are still some recovery issues from the renovation; the fairways are pretty bare and the ground is sticky, clay like, and hard. That said, once the grass comes in it is reasonable to expect this course will be a real gem. Of note, the carts do not have USB plug-ins, so bring a full charge.

Overall, I can't say enough good things about this course. The staff is outstanding, the course is a great challenge and very fun, the practice facilities are good, and, although I didn't check out the food or drinks, it appears there is plenty of space to accommodate typical 19th hole festivities. Go play this course.

I was in the chipping area and I hear this guy call on the radio and say this guy in the red shirt (he was referring to me) do he belong hear.I was in a golf cart so I had to have checked in at the pro shop. I was dressed in golf attire. Shirt tucked in shorts pulled up with belt. So the only other reason I can see why he would have to call to see if I belong there is because of the color of my skin. I was very offended and it was unnecessary. I've played here many times and never had a problem until now.

The greens rolled as smooth and true as any I have played in a long time. Fairways were tight and fast as well, and gave you a lot of options to fly the ball, bounce it, or roll it into the greens. I don't agree with the comments about the conditions or dirt fairways.

Disappointed in this course after the renovations. Greens are good but the rest of the course is in bad shape. Tee boxes and fairways basically have zero grass and you hit off dirt. My buddy and i ended up teeing up the ball in the fairway after giving up trying to hit off no grass.

If you do play this course, stop by Top Golf on the way and pick up one if theirs mats to bring to the course, you'll need it.

They recently redid this golf course and this is the second time I've played there since the redo. I was expecting better conditions this time than last but there wasn't much improvement. The greens are green but they are hard and don't hold. The fairways didn't seem real healthy but you could get a lot of roll. It's a challenging course and maybe after spring the conditions will be perfect.
