Great course but as this was the first time playing a championship course in hellish wind and rain, it kinda spoilt the fun. In summertime, this course would be a must play in my book.

Course was good and well layed out. Unfortunately it was very wet and boggy in places - not sure on the drainage?

Played for the first time as a visitor, with other non members in a four ball. Course quite wet after a wet week but very playable with some placing. Nice layout with a proper mixture of long and short holes. Quite undulating but certainly not a slog. Nice use of water hazards without over doing it. Greens exceptional for time of year with true rolling of the ball giving confidence with putting. I would imagine that they would be very slick at the hight of a dry summer. The winter mats ok but could be better. Rakes in every bunker and having ball cleaning facilities at every tee would be nice touches but overall I rate this a one of the best courses I have ever played and great value for £ 15. The off course facilities looked to be very tidy with a nice club house & patio etc. Well stocked store and good practise facilities. All in all giving the appearance of being a very professional set up.

Excellent course with some very nice looking holes.
Considering the amount of rain overnight the greens were firm and not much standing water around the course.
Nice bar/resteraunt
Only negative is that we struggled to find the next tee due to lack of/poorly placed signs around the course.
Overall, I'd be happy to recommend to anyone of any handicap.

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.

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.

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.
