Second time playing this course and the positive impression left after the first round remains intact. From the friendly pro shop welcome (and resolution of a missing booking) right the way through to the final green this was an outstanding golf experience. Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Some long par 4 holes and tricky contours make things interesting. If it wasn't a 2.5 hour drive from home I am sure that this would be a regular venue. Highly recommended.

Easy to get a team time, fairly quiet and good pace of play. The course was in good condition forvthevtime of year with all greens in play and evenly paced. A few of the temporary tees were not flat and the grass too long and a number of the bunkers were in reconstruction so playing GUR. Overall a good course, appears open in all conditions and, excellent value for money.

Played Foest Hills today. It was my first time here. We had a very pleasant welcome in the club shop and went out onto the course as booked. Very nice course. Lots of different holes and the greens were very slick. We ventured into the 19th afterwards and once again everyone was most pleasant. Will definitely play this course again. Very good value.

First time playing here with my 68 year old father when every other course around is either half shut or not open at all due to recent wet weather. Worries that we wouldnt be allowed trolleys but amazinly only buggies were banned! Greens - pin placement the day i played was very hard, lots cut on the front edge or the hardest point on the Greeen with the most angles - maybe it was a competion time recently. They were bobbly but run fast for wet greens, can image they are pretty slick when summertime comes around. The course is hilly, but with only three really steep bits, the rest is more than manageable. Would recommend.

Well it's the end of January, it's been a week of wet weather and still you can rely on Forest Hills to be playable and to allow you to use trolleys.

We were stuck behind quite a slow 4-ball which meant waiting on most tees. On arrival at the 10th tee they'd only just walked off it but no offer to let us play through!!! We could have finished a good 20 minutes earlier had they had the courtesy to let quicker groups through.
