Down hill

Played Forest Hill today (16/05/18) for the first tine in a couple of years. We as a group were extremely disappointed in the course. It was in a poor state compared to previous visits with the fairways unkempt and the greens virtually unplayable. Would not visit again im a hurry.

Club facilities very good..friendly. the course is long ..greens ok ..but the course needs some work on it ..various bunkers had stones or .very little sand..tee areas need some work. .not worth 18 pounds when you can play Horsley lodge Derbyshire and springwater Nottingham for fifteen..both are in great condition.

Wet day in leicestershire

On a wet day the course was not at its best, the lay out was good but long wet grass made it a bit hard. Would like to come back on a dry xday when fairways had been cut and no grass laying around

The course is an excellent layout and provides a very good test for your game. We had not played here since last year and were very disappointed with the greens which were bone dry and very sandy. If you tried to land a pitch it would just bounce off the back. We were hoping the course would be in tip top condition for the start of the season and won't rush back.

Would have been nice to be informed at time of booking that's the greens were like playing on a beach, the bunkers were similar to building sites and the grass on the fairways was like playing out of the rough at many other courses.

Greens very poor due to work being carried out which was disappointing - not sure how good they would be normally!? Tees in poor condition! Fairways not as "grassed" as would expect

TBO i was very disappointed with the course.

Both the fairways and greens were not cut very well and the greens were very slow and spongey.
The general care for the course seemed low with pathways left un-cut and signs between holes no where to be seen.

Positives are that the course has a lot of potential if maintained and cared for and there is an excellent bar serving food after a round.

Sadly for £30 a round i will not be returning for a long while and would only be willing to if the cost was about £12 as iv play council run courses in better condition and for half the price.

Rant over with!!

The course is poorly laid out and even more poorly maintained. There are lots of tee positions that leave you in danger of being struck by balls from different tees/fairways/driving range. The greens on the 3 new holes are in shocking condition too.

Played here for the first time in about 20yrs. Couldn’t remember the course at all, but apparently it’s being restructured. Fairways are beginning to soften up a bit. But the greens were fairly consistent. The bunkers have had a load of sand put in. Overall, a good quiet course.

Very boggy

Recent heavy rain made the course quite unplayable. Lost balls plugged on the fairway. Greens in remarkebly good condition. Worth playing later in the year but has suffer3d badly at the hands of the wet weather.

Played the course in early August. Decent course but work is needed on a) the tees and b) the greens. Tees need wastering and more grass. Greens were rock hard and very very dry. They need to be regularly watered.

Good holes apart from the second which has a ridiculously difficult two tier solid green. Most greens were impossible to pitch.

The course has much promise but more work is needed.
