Forrest Crossing Golf Course
Course is still in rough shape from winter flooding. Greens rolled true but very slow. Fairways in poor shape. It's standard. By summer I'm sure the course will be back in good shape

Giving up on this course
I have played here many times and there seems to always be an issue with pace of play. Rangers are out there but not doing anything to help move along play. Also booking way to close. It was our tee time and we had to wait to tee off because someone was still in the middle of the fairway, needless to say this continued all day. I had to stop after 9 on a weekday starting at 1:45 because it took 3 hours to play 9. I don't usually have 6 hours to play golf on a weekday.

Great holes/bad shape
For a local course this will always be a great play. The conditions however are horrible. Several of the wholes near the river have silt covering the fairways. The tee boxes are always tough and not well kept. However, the greens were incredible and this course has some really good holes that challenge every golfer. It's just the turf is never good here. No matter the time of year.

A cow pasture has more grass
I have tried to give this place numerous chances each year. I grew up 15 minutes away and would say I have played this course in excess of 75+ times. They make sure they have full foursomes and stack them every EIGHT MINUTES!!!..don't believe me? look at the tee time intervals on Golfnow. I told the ranger there is a reason that professional golfers go off in twosomes every 10 minutes...BECAUSE THAT'S HOW LONG IT TAKES THEM TO PLAY TO KEEP THE TRAFFIC MOVING. 4 dudes who are 25 handicaps every 8 minutes clearly states they only care about making money and not promoting the game. Not complaining about the water on the course because it has rained quite a bit lately....with that being said..the course is in absolute terrible shape. 90% of the fairways are mud and tree branches..sorry i cant explain but I have pictures. The fringes around the greens are HARDPAN. This is how the course always is since they basically don't water past the end of May. THIS ROUND TOOK US 6 HOURS!! AND EVERYONE IN MY GROUP IS SUB 10 HANDICAP!!! If they spent as much time working on their course as they did my turkey/swiss I had for lunch it would be a miracle. BTW she made my sandwich in 5 minutes.

Have Always Enjoyed This Course
Always a fun layout to play. Rain and wet conditions affect this course but I always feel it drains well enough with the Burmuda Grass. Greens are always good to putt on.

Pace of play
Forrest crossing has got to do a better job of monitoring pace of play. Winter afternoon, nice weather but no need for a 5 hour round.

Challenging and a great, relaxing time.
Nice layout. The greens were fast and the pins were dastardly. The winter sun angle wasn't helping either. If you can zero in on yardages, you can score. (I can't.)It is a fun course.

They stack you up like cattle headed for the slaughter house. Similar to the design of the course. Could be a beautiful 14 hole layout but they decided to squeeze 4 more in there.
