What the club says: Forest Hills is a naturally undulating parkland course set in the beautiful Forest Of Dean and is currently regarded as being one of the finest courses in the area, with such excellent drainage, tees and greens that it is playable all year round. Challenging enough for County Events and friendly enough for visitors and societies to enjoy a day's golf.

Always worth playing!

Hadn't played the course for 4 months and after a lot of rain this week, it was still in excellent condition as always. All holes are a challenge and varied in style. Greens a little slow but expected after the rain. No heavy rough, fairways excellent. The pro is very friendly and helpful and we had a great experience in the clubhouse, where the staff were great, even had some banter with the chef. Will always play this course, any time of the year.

Average Course at Best

Arrived as 3 x 4 balls of good to decent golfers , found ourselves behind a Visiting society of 40 playing a Ryder cup style event off the white tees ! Had to wait 10 minutes on every tee , one of our groups walked off the course after 9 holes which took 2 hours 45 mins , the other groups completed the 18 holes in 5 & 1/4 hours !! Poor course , felt at several times in danger of being hit ,would never return to play as not 1 hole of the 18 was memorable, bland , uninteresting & tatty , is only worth £10 green fee rather than the £27 we paid , in you enjoy nice courses , don’t go here !

Absolutely fantastic, all aspects of the course in great condition. The pro is always friendly, unable to use the bar due to Covid 19 but still a great day.

Really nice course

Got a good deal on golfnow to play this course, not one of my normal haunts.

Really surprised, fairly tight course with rows of trees lining the fairways. Greens were fast and firm and bunkers were in good condition.

Pace of play today was slow but everyone was chipper and polite. They could do with some signage to point newbies to the course from the green to the next tee, they could also do with updating their ball cleaners and bins. The scorecard has a map of the course but some courses have maps of the holes on the tee which would have made a nice touch, if not on every hole on the holes which have blind hazards. But I am being picky there. This was a good challenge of golf.
