Forest Oaks Country Club

Hadn't played Forest Oaks in a couple of years, but my buddy made a tee time there Saturday morning at 9:32 for four of us.

Got to the course around 8:45 or so, was greeted in the parking lot by the cart attendant/starter/overall nice guy. He asked when our tee time was, gave us a run down on where everything was and asked if we needed anything. Went inside to what I assume is a new pro shop, when I played 2 or so years ago it was downstairs, it is now upstairs and very nice. Tripp in the pro shop was real nice, told us the greens had been punch a week ago and were about 70% back, which was a bit of a disappointment, but hey they got to punch them sometime.

Got our keys, some range balls and went over to get our carts. Two guys there, one the same that greeted us originally got us all set on the carts and we went to hit some range balls before heading to the first tee.

Pace of play was excellent. We were fortunate enough to have nobody in front of us which was great. We did have a 3 some behind us that we let play through on #10 and then a 2 some behind then that we let pass after we teed off on #11. Both groups thanked us and off they went never to be seen again.

The course was in very good shape, with the greens being the only reason it wasnt excellent over all. Tees and fairways were on point and the rough, though it was pretty freshly mowed was thick and challenging as you would expect from a course of this stature. The greens were bumpy/slow from the aeration, however I have no doubt that a week from now they will be rolled, smooth and in perfect condition.

Course has a real nice layout to it, on the longer side which is nice and you get to hit a variation of clubs that you don't at most other public courses in the area.

Stopped in the bar/grill after our round and grabbed a hot dog and beer while we watched some football. The bartender was awesome and very pleasant.

All and all a great day on the course and somewhere we will definitely be visiting again.

He would play this course again.

Have to give credit when it's due and the course is really coming back around. Fairways were in good shape, tee boxes are coming around and the greens looked really good. Only issue was pitch marks that weren't repaired properly. Pace of play was great. Course layout is probably my favorite in the Triad.

Fine layout -championship quality. Friendly staff and pricing. Greens were very good, fairways so so and traps/rough in need of work. Not sure if course is on the start of a rise, or decline, but definitely in transition from the glory years. Still, for under $40 on a Sunday, I recommend it!

Every time I play this course it gets better and better. The greens are rolling smooth and quick. There are still a few bad spots on the greens but they are much improved than the last time I played. I cannot recommend this course enough!

Could see how it hosted tour event, played in offseason so condition is hard to tell. Looks like they are working on upgrading some bunkers.
Will play again
