Not played the course since 2016 and enjoyed a very pleasant round. We followed a four ball who were in turn following two other four balls, the pace was slow for us being a two ball, which was understandable and did not spoil our enjoyment of the round or the course. If you are visiting the area around York make a point of playing Forest Park Golf Club Stockton on Forest and Forest of Galtres.

I love this course. We have played it many times before. However, the greens were really poor today. Badly scarred from winter with some craters that really affected putting. However, it's not normally like this and we got it at a good price. Maybe we will wait until Spring for our next visit.

Played on a damp Saturday morning in November, but the course was in good condition, and the pace of play was great.

For a new golfer with a high handicap, it provided a great opportunity to take a few risks and test your game on a fairly open/rewarding course.

For the price, this is definitely one to try if you’re looking for a new course

Just wanted to say how nice this course is and if you're thinking about going to play there, then you definitely should! I am a 23 handicap, who plays once a week (work allowing) and absolutely loved the course! It is nice and flat and not ridiculously long. Theres a few challenging holes and a few easier holes but overall I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it! The course was in a lovely condition! Go play here!!!

We made the most of the beautiful weather to play 18 holes in the hot sun. Considering we have not had much rain recently the course played really well and the cold beverage on the 19th was most welcome.

Well done Galtres - keep it up.
