Florida Golf Course Review

General information

More than 30 ponds, lakes and canals plus an abundance of majestic oaks help to create an aesthetically pleasing environment.

Forest Course

The Forest presents wooded fairways and small greens that demand shot-making ability. As indicated in the photos above however, there is generally ample room for bump and run shots when approaches fall short. Four sets of tees play to distances that measure 6712, 6224, 5622 and 4911 yards, with slope ratings ranging from 114 to 130. Water comes into play prominently on 14 holes with ponds and lakes in view on others - though there are few forced carries. 60 sand bunkers are located throughout the layout, along the fairways or greenside. The Tiff-dwarf putting surfaces and 419-Bermuda fairways are always in good condition. This is truly an interesting design, with some challenging doglegs framed by trees and water. Accuracy as well as distance are necessary to score well here.
