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 and Today's Golfer named rewarded the resort with the title of 'Best Golf Course in the East of England in 2018'

Awesome course but very challenging

We played all 3 of the 9 hole courses in 3 various 18 hole combinations over 3 days and all were incredibly well looked after from tee to green. If you think you are going to get an easy game here then think again. If you are not accurate the trees will punish you unless the tree monkeys are kind and throw your ball back onto the fairway. I would definitely go back as I am convinced like most mid handicap golfers, that I could do better next time! Good luck and enjoy.

Busy but great fun

Lovely course consisting of 3 x 9 holes so for 18 it?s a combination of 2 out of the 3?.. It?s quite a network of holes and on the whole the signposting is quite good, but not great in places. It was busy and that also meant a bit of hanging around but not too painful. There are lots of bunkers and I think we found everyone of them! Greens like satin, so very fast which didn?t help my overall score!

Really enjoyed playing here. Tough test due to the trees lining every hole. Forest 9 holes was the best by far.

A wish list course finally ticked off

Played all 3 loops of nine and each is worth playing. The greens have some great undulations and were running quick for the time of year. My favourite loop was Forest, but Pines has some fine testing holes and Beeches' greens were probably the trickiest. Under current restrictions food was available in the hotel bar which was friendly and welcoming.

Played Forest nine and Pines nine.Both lovely courses - fair but challenging. The scenery around the course is gorgeous. You need a camera in addition to your clubs! You will not be disappointed. Need to go back and play thr beeches nine soon.

Wow just wow

what can i say!! What a course.
Immaculate tee to green. Bunks in great positions. Treelined fairways from start to finish, but as long as you aren't horrendous off the tee they are plenty wide enough. Even if you do stay into the tree its quite forgiving under them, so you will normally find your ball. The layout of the course is great and we barely saw another group in front or behind us. The holes are very varied and each 1 as challenging as the last.
Everyone was very welcoming and the whole visit went without a blip( bar the hotel losing our dinner booking, which was sorted)
The only downside for us was the practice facilities. Driving range!! Bit disappointing, not even long enough to test the driver.
On the whole a great visit and have every intention of visiting again.

Forest Pines disappointing golf

Disappointing that only two of the 3 x 9 holes was in play. The lack of food or drink in the clubhouse very disappointing. A very souless course and clubhouse lacking the 3 in our party were all very disappointed so much that we left early without finishing the 2nd 18

Fantastic Round - Forest & Beeches

In bleak winter weather, me (off 9) and a mate (off 6) decided to make the trip out to Forest Pines for a ?20 round. We were met with bright sunlight and lovely manicured holes and surroundings. The Forest Course was immaculate and such an interesting challenge - I'd give it 8.5 out of 10. Our second nine was Beeches which wasn't as good but still 7 out of 10. Both courses are a challenge, but Pines stands out for me as superb. The undulating fairways and greens plus the mature and huge pines mean you have to be accurate off the tee to give yourself a chance. We did find it amusing that it seemed to be very favourable to a draw player (my mate) and not a face player (me), so beware. The Pines 9 was closed but is one of the better ones out of the three. I would certainly say to aim for Forest and Pines or Pines and Forest if you are doing 18. But if you end up doing beeches you'll still have a really enjoyable round. The club house and catering are excellent and the staff were very engaged. Watch out for a recent change, you have to register your number plate with golf reception to get an all day parking pass ... or risk a fine. Go there and if the weather is good you will not be disappointed.

Lovely set up

Great facilities but very slow play pace due to the amount of people they squeeze in. Makes play uncomfortable as you can have 3 sets of players queueing. Courses in good condition and apart from slow play it was value for money - just be prepared to take 5 hours to get around.
