Forest Hills Golf Club
Course was in pretty good shape. Not a lot of trouble on the course; it's pretty open and only has water on a few holes. The greens are the golf course's only defense. They are fast and very undulating. Probably top 3 fastest greens I've played on in 15 years of golf. With that said, if you can putt, you'll have a great time!

Nice Place to golf, very friendly!
The greens were super slick and quick .....be ready to putt...if you think you hit it to soft it is usually right speed.....
Bermuda was dorment when I played....but you better be able to strike the ball solid...
You will love it and you played a course much like the National....

Challenging and fun with fast and undulating greens
The greens are the best part of this course. The greens are undulating and challenging in a typical Donald Ross style. The layout is picturesque and not too penalizing. Overall, it's a great course and I love playing there.

Winter time conditions understood even for mid-march, greens very very firm and very very fast - I will go back after warmer conditions get the course a little more friendly

Huge crowd,cart paths only made for SLOW golf.
Wish had known there was a large local crowd that were shotgun started ( assume due to size) and pace of play was not good. Found 2-3 foursomes backed up at times. We had to play front nine twice as back was so backed up. Like this course and will be back after asking "if" large group playing and course experiencing slow play.

A Must Play when your in Augusta Ga.
Fast undulating greens, a test for the better putters. Play to the center or front edges..to long by by..to short they stick.
Great atmosphere and the first home course of Bobby Jones.
You can play where he honed his craft...The History...Amazing

Pretty course, but very busy
This is one of the busiest course I have played; and I have played this course on several occasions.
This course could be reasonably played in closer to 3 hours; however there tends to be a lot of walking groups which severely decrease the pace of play.

It had rained the day before I played but the course was in good shape
Greens were soft and fast fare ways clean and neat traps were dry and well maintained

Interesting course layout with good mix of challenging and scoring holes. Course is in great shape for winter conditions.
I like this course. The course is in excellent condition with smooth and fast greens, well conditioned fairways, and great tee boxes. The bunkers were in great shape as well. The problem I have with the course is it's just too slow. My threesome teed off at 12 noon and finished at 4:50pm. My group and the group in front of us had to wait to tee off on many holes throughout the course. If not for the waiting, we may have finished 45 minutes earlier.

Found out this course is the #1 public course in Augusta...
This is a great course with a very friendly and helpful staff.
It was our first time to play but we will definitely go back even though it is over an hour drive to get there.
The greens on this course are the MOST challenging we have ever seen so be prepared.
Overall, a great day of golf (regardless of the score, hahaha...)

The layout is just right
The course is in excellent shape and the greens are a 9 on a scale of 0-10.

Long course from the tips; however, regardless of your skill level you will be challenged by the speed of these greens.
I teed off on time and kept a consistent pace throughout the entire game. I am used to fast greens, but even the fringes of these greens are fast. This is the home course for the Augusta State University Jaguars--two time NCAA champions. Great course and conveniently located near downtown.

Better than average bang for the buck.
Tee boxes good condition, fairways fair, greens quick and smooth (except for unrepaired ball marks) sand bunkers good (except for unraked footprints). Bunker sand clean and depth was good but very thin in some places. Staff was friendly and clubhouse is good. Practice facilities good except driving range reverts to astro turf mats in the winter. Driving area generous, greens perched and fall off quickly to somewhat deeper than average (for a public course) bunkers. Nice layout keeps your interest througout. Pace of play can be slow at times due to a few inconsiderate golfers.
