Why You Should Play Golf at Forest Pines

By: Liam Moore | Thu 31 Mar 2022

Nestled deep into the Lincolnshire countryside lies Forest Pines Golf & Spa Resort, a 27-hole championship course that is highly revered throughout the British Shores.

Alongside the excellent standard of golf are 188 rooms, offering ample space for a multitude of visitors, and a first-class restaurant to accommodate the demand.

A spa and gym complete the services offered by the alluring Forest Pines Resort, and we are going to break them all down and start from the most important aspect - the golf.


Forest Pines Golf

The great thing about 27-hole complexes is that they can combine to make three different experiences of golf.

Tackling two at a time - or even jumbling the order - can ask different questions of your golf game, which is why Forest Pines is so popular.

To develop a greater understanding of how pristine the facility is, they have hosted the Junior Golf Championships, PGA Super 60s, British Blind Open and played host to the EuroPro Tour Qualifying School. 

Having been likened to iconic destinations such as Woburn and Wentworth, Forest Pines reputation has been carved in only 25 years of history.

Since opening in 1996, the complex’s appeal has strengthened on an annual basis, with 200 acres of tranquil woodland providing the perfect retreat.

The Forest and Pines combination will provide the sternest challenge, whilst the Beeches will be preferred by higher-handicap golfers.

As you’d expect, the collection of holes are maintained to the highest standard and the passionate greenkeepers contribute heavily towards the overall grand appeal.

The premium loop - Forest and Pines - has a par of 73 and measures 6,400 yards, which isn’t the longest you’ll encounter.

The peaceful countryside setting softens the blow of any errant decisions but this 18-hole layout will demand nothing short of excellence.

This isn’t a venue that encourages pure power from every angle; finessing your way around this challenging route is the recommended strategy.

With plentiful bunkerage and water hazards lining many fairways, accuracy will long reign over distance and muscling your way through.

To complete the golfing facilities, a driving range and putting green is available for practice sessions and preparation for the impending round.


Forest Pines Rooms

With 188 rooms available, Forest Pines can accommodate plenty of visitors - as they regularly do so.

Due to its idyllic setting, a stay at Forest Pines is dominated by its woodland backdrop that completely encapsulates the hotel.

There are five types of room available but you can be assured that each and every one includes a comfortable bed to ensure rest for the following day’s activities.

Guest Rooms give the traveller the option, where they can choose between a king bed or two queen beds - with the latter ideal for friends sharing on a golf trip.

All guests rooms are equipped with an en-suite bathroom, TV and ultra-speed Wi-Fi.

The Accessible Guest Rooms can offer guests extra space and fantastic wheelchair access, they also include a wet room.

Bursting with style and panache is the Deluxe Room, where guests can enjoy utterly comfortable beds, complimentary bathrobes and further space to stretch their legs.

Junior Suites come with everything listed above but in a more lavish design, with bold colours and neutral tones to induce relaxation at every moment.

The premium option is the One Bedroom Suite, which comes equipped with generous living space and is a fantastic treat for elongated stays or families that would like to spread out.


Forest Pines Restaurant

With restaurants and menus that are packed with flavour and excitement, the eating experience at Forest Pines enhances the resort's overall quality.

Traditional and private dining are available on-site, whilst afternoon tea is also offered - serving a range of cream and jam treats.

The Grill Restaurant takes inspiration from the Mediterranean and provides a seasonal menu, which is ideal for an intimate setting for two or larger groups.

Boasting outstanding views of the 18th hole from the terrace is The Pines Bar, serving food throughout the day.

It is also an excellent and preferred location for evening drinks, which is especially beautiful during the summer, where you can indulge in a clear night sky.

Finally, The Lounge Bar provides meals in the forms of quick bites and it is an ideal location to enjoy tea and coffee.

Complimentary Wi-Fi is accessible and otherworldly views of the surrounding countryside provides peaceful scenery.


With spa treatments, days and breaks all available, this part of the resort is often just as busy as the golf courses.

A pool, solarium, steam room and heated loungers are readily available for guests, and individual treatments can be booked without grouping together.

The hotel also boasts a relaxation room and experience shower, whilst a dedicated spa lounge has been created for guests.

Treatments include Couture Touch, Wellbeing Massage, Free Style Deep Tissue and Revitalising Rituals.

Situated deep into the Lincolnshire countryside is one of England’s greatest golfing retreats.

With 27 holes of championship golf - that can be combined for three different experiences - the reputation of Forest Pines continues to grow.

The restaurant, bars, spa and first-class accommodation all merge to offer an outstanding golf trip; there is good reason why this facility is thought of so highly.
