Played 36 holes in May 08, and with the name FOREST in the title we were expecting a tree lined affair, but not at all, the course itself sits up high on a brow and the holes seem to bob and weave all around quite open plains with views of the rolling fairways. Each hole is different, well presented and a little bit of thought is needed where to place the tee shot. The downside to the holes is that the club is holding onto the ‘par 72’ scenario which we felt was mad as most of the Par 5’s should be made into Par 4’s (reason being the Par 5’s are only 428, 438, 492 and 458 yards and as some are downhill they were more than accessible in 2 shots). Overall I would visit again as the course provided a good day for our party of 12 (even though the greens should be made quicker), the food is good and reasonable priced compared to that of the Pro’s steep hike of £5 for a push trolley, £12 for an electric trolley and £40 for a buggy !!!!
