What the club says: Forest Pines (Forest Pines)
The stunning championship layout at Forest Pines was opened in 1996 and has rapidly become one of the must play courses in the UK. The fairways twist and turn their way through majestic pines and then into open heathland and despite its tender years, Forest Pines is reminiscent of a more established championship course. Split into three 9 hole loops, the Pines, the Beeches and the Forest, it plays at 6,882 yards in its longest combination. Designed by John Morgan and constructed to exceptionally high standards, it was voted the best new course in England by Golf World magazine almost immediately after it was opened and has hosted the Ericsson Midland PGA Championship for the last three years.

Good fairways and tees, Poor Greens and Bunkers. Staff - Ughhhh!
Nice looking, pretty, scenic course. Lots of pine trees bordering almost every fairway so have plenty balls! Tee Boxes and Fairways in great shape. Unfortunately greens had been aerated and top dressed with sand so in the morning dew were terrible. The ball just picked up so much sand, putting conditions very poor, ball jumps and bobbles so pace and line were impossible to judge. Bunkers are hardpan under the surface and really need attention. The young staff were really friendly, but the older staff were really grumpy, and set a poor example.

Very Enjoyable
Forest Pines is a 27 hole complex near Scunthorpe, although it sounds like it should be a US PGA Tour course somewhere in California. There are 3 loops of 9 holes, Forest, Beeches and Pines, and we were playing the Forest/Beeches combination on the way down to Wentworth for the PGA Championship.

The course very much has a look of Wentworth about it as almost all holes are tree-lined on both sides. Although most fairways are wide enough so as not to feel too intimidating, you do need to be a straight hitter to keep your score intact. The holes have enough variation to keep things interesting with one or two water hazards also added to the mix. The course was in excellent condition on a beautiful hot day and breakfast on the veranda and a post-round pint in the sunshine made up for a very enjoyable visit.

Would I return? Definitely – this is the best course I have played at one of the big hotel chains.

First time staying and playing at Forest Pines and in a word impressed. All 3 courses (Forest, Pines and Beeches) all worth playing. Quite tight treelined holes, greens true and fairly quick. All very well maintained. All on the flat so easy walk round.Well worth a visit for sure.

Tight fairways I've never hit so many trees bunkers are unplayable but course on the whole is good.
If you have high handicap id avoid.

Staff and members friendly. Hotel restaurant not the best but each to there own I guess.

3 Different Loops
The course is based on 3 loops. Forest / Pines / Beeches. Forest is the most enjoyable and scorable. Pines is tighter and you need to think a little more about each shot, especially off the tee and Beeches is overly punishing unless you have a good fade/draw in your locker (I haven't!!). There are a good few par fives that are reachable in two so scores can be had. My only real criticisms are the bunkers are hard and need a bit more sand and that the stroke index look as it has been done to fit the loop system rather than for the right reasons. This is resort golf though so not everyone's cup of tea. Got stuck behind the slowest fourball ever, not hackers, just very slow over every shot. When they walked off at the 9th it was such a relief. I don't want to play speed golf but i don't want to wait 5/6 minutes over every shot.

Good Golf Break
Great course, very tight, need to be in position, which I was but never made anything. Greens very tricky. Holiday golf location, so pace can be a little slow. Probably would come back, but need my golfing ego to recover from the battering it got first!

Nearly killed me!
Tihjter fairways than Ashby Decoy, some green near impossible to read, brilliant par three over the lake, hotel was spotless, great food, residents get 20% off at the bar, all in all a great place to play golf. Three sets of nine holes, we played all,three sets, brilliant.

Was a windy day but luckily the rain stayed away in the main. The facilities were very good with a good friendly welcome. Found the greens to be different speeds and perhaps a little long. the bunkers also didnt have much sand in and some tee boxes were very poor. A clear difference between Beeches and Pines, Pines being the nicer course. Generally a good course, but feel everywhere just needs a bit of a cut.

very quiet on day,hail and sun. Made very welcome by staff. Could do with better markers on tee posts rather than on discs on floor to give you an idea where next (minor point as no one to follow. Excellent maintenance of course with the weather we have had.

(Round played: May 2017 - Score: 105 Handicap: 25.3)
Interesting courses with some well shaped fairways. Greens tend to have a lot of tree residue on them due to the volume of trees, which makes putting more difficult than it should. Not a course for high handicap players looking to reduce their h/cap.

Played here on Saturday and Sunday. Forest/Pines on Saturday and Beeches/Forest on Sunday.
The courses were generally in excellent condition although some of the tees were a bit scruffy.
Hotel was very comfortable.
Well worth a visit.

Course in good knick. Greens quick but not overly and reseptive to approach shots. Tees abit worn on some holes. First cut of rough medium length so no excuses to get it back in play.

Just got back from a weekend here. Played Beeches/Forest on Saturday. Teed off at 13.00 & thoroughly enjoyed the day. Hotel was lovely & the meal at night was beautiful (as was breakfast on the Sunday)

Played Forest/Pines at around 10.45 on Sunday. Forest was good but the pace of play when we got to Pines was mind numbingly slooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwww with a good 10 minutes wait on each tee.

All in all a nice course.

This was my first visit to Forest Pines. I was invited along by a friend otherwise I don't think I would have thought about playing here. I thought my game wasn't good enough.
Course was in excellent condition and the green staff were busy keeping everything pristine.
A good experience. Worth repeating
