The Course

Hole 1

Hole 1

340 Yards

Par 4

A gentle tee shot with few needing a driver; the left bridge being a good line off the tee.

Beware going too long into the burn that runs across the bottom and in front of the green.

The second shot needs to carry the burn. The right side of the green slopes back to the centre.

Hole 1

Hole 2

175 Yards

Par 3

There is out of bounds to the left.

This tee shot requires an extra club, possibly two on the yardage.

Make sure you are not short as this leaves a very difficult up and down, especially if you land in the bunker.

The green slopes from back to front with a drop off to the right.

Hole 1

Hole 3

317 Yards

Par 4

There is out of bounds to the left.

A good tee shot is needed as the wind usually impacts this hole; short of the middle right bunker is a good line.

The out of bounds on the left and thick trees on the right make it tricky off the tee.

The left side of the green drops away quite steeply so best to keep straight or right if possible.

Hole 1

Hole 4

313 Yards

Par 4

There is out of bounds to the left and right (in the trees).

This could be a rewarding Par 4 for the brave big hitters who know the line to the green over the trees, but if you let your drive slide then you could be out of bounds or have no shot to the green.

The sensible tee shot, especially if the wind is against you, is to aim for the middle tree at the top of the hill, leaving a straightforward pitch to the green. Be careful as the green drops off at the back & right.

Hole 1

Hole 5

320 Yards

Par 4

Take a line over the left bunker near the green for the shortest carry.

The further right you go the more chance you have of landing in one of the bunkers or even in the reed pond.

Rocks to the back of the green and wind bushes to the right mean an accurate approach is needed.

Hole 1

Hole 6

144 Yards

Par 3

Only a short iron required but don't think this is an easy hole, especially if the wind is blowing across.

The table top green falls sharply away on either side and distance control is essential.

Make sure your uphill putt is firm but your downhill putt is cautious; slopes will take the ball away.

Hole 1

Hole 7

602 Yards

Par 5

A good straight drive aimed between the line of the bunkers on the hill is ideal.

When taking your second, lay up shot beware of the pond on the left.

Make sure your third short is long enough to hit the green as all short balls will either fall back down the hill or into the right hand bunker.

It's a two tier green and important to end up on the correct one, otherwise it could be long putt to the hole.

Hole 1

Hole 8

438 Yards

Par 4

Internal out of bounds to the right, extending almost up to the green, and a burn to the left before the hill.

A long and difficult Par 4 needing a good straight drive to avoid a burn on the left and big tree on the right.

Remember to take a line off the LEFT flag pole before reaching your drive as the next shot could be blind.

The green slopes away to the left so aim slightly to the right of the pin.

Hole 1

HOLE 9

503 Yards

Par 5

There is out of bounds to the left and to the right (down to the burn).

A drive to the top of the hill or beyond can make this reachable in two shots.

The safe shot is to lay up short of the burn (if windy) or beyond to leave a shortish iron to the green.

Avoid the Do'cot tower to the right and the out of bounds at the back of the green.

Hole 1

HOLE 10

Yards 379

Par 4

Avoid all bunkers by favouring the right side of the fairway. This leaves you the line into the two tiered green.

There is also a "bail out" down the left to the 18th fairway but this will leave you a blind shot to the green.

The key is to leave your approach shot below the hole, if the flag is at the front, otherwise you will be faced with a treacherous putt down the hill.

Hole 1

HOLE 11

417 Yards

Par 4

Internal out of bounds to the left and external out of bounds to the right signal the start of a tough stretch.

A sharp right to left dogleg requires a precise tee shot to the corner. Right of the corner tree is the line.

The long second shot needs to clear the ponds and stay away from the left bunker before the green.

The green is long, shallow and very undulating. Ending up below the hole is a definite advantage.

Hole 1

HOLE 12

439 Yards

Par 4

A good drive down the right side of the fairway is the line as the fairway slopes right to left.

The second shot usually requires one more club than you think as most of it requires a carry.

Aim for the right side of the green to avoid the bunker; the green slopes right to left.

Hole 1

HOLE 13

476 Yards

Par 4

Aim for the right side of the fairway off the tee.

This is arguably the hardest green to hit and once again aim for the right side for safety.

The green has a hogs back running through the middle so line can be very difficult to judge.

Hole 1

HOLE 14

194 Yards

Par 3

Aim for the middle of the green, no matter the location of the pin.

Right of the pin leaves you with no shot and you could end up running off the green at the other side.

At all costs, leave yourself with an uphill putt.

Hole 1

HOLE 15

551 Yards

Par 5

The big hitters can be rewarded with a long straight drive but be very careful with the next shot, very thick rough is evident both left and right.

There is a bunker that guards the front of the green so be sure to have enough club.

The green slopes back to front with subtle sub slopes within.

Hole 1

HOLE 16

424 Yards

Par 4

This is a dogleg left to right where a straight drive is the best advice; certainly avoid going to the right.

The second shot is tricky as the green slopes away to the back and also slopes left to right.

Best placed second shot will be to the left allowing the slopes to do the work.

Hole 1

HOLE 17

416 Yards

Par 4

There is out of bounds to the right so take notice of the wind direction.

This is a dogleg left to right and there is thick rough on both sides of the hill bottom.

Remember to take a line from the RIGHT pole before reaching your drive as the next shot could be blind.

There is a front bunker protecting the green. The green falls off to the left and back.

Hole 1

HOLE 18

416 Yards

Par 4

Internal out of bounds to the right with a burn and pond waiting to devour the miss hit drive.

Safe bet is to aim for centre fairway short of the burn. Anything right may be blocked out for the next shot.

Be careful with the second shot as anything short may roll back off the green, down the hill.

The green has a guarding front left bunker and severe back to front slope.

Amazing

Played Forrester Park recently on their winter fourball deal when all other courses in the area were closed. Amazing! Have heard great reviews from friend about its playability in the winter and I have to say fairways dry, greens were quick and true. I highly recommend this course, if this good in the winter looking forward to a summer game!

D, UK

Excellent condition

Played this course as a guest several times and it is always in excellent condition. The greens are well kept and the course layout is very good with some interesting holes which you have to think about. The front is shorter and scores can be made in the first 5-6 holes in particular. Greens were in good condition and very true and not too fast. Facilities first class and like the driving range to warm up.

Graeme, UK

Would recommend it

Just played the course today and would recommend it to anyone who likes a challenge; greens are superb and I beleive they are available throughout the winter. Pro was very helpful and gave me a swing tip that worked a treat… wouldn’t accept a tip. Will be back.
