What we say
Since it opened over a decade ago, Forest Pines Golf Course has picked up a whole host of golf course awards and accolades and rightly so. Forest Pines is a modern masterpiece and revelation: the Woburn lookalike looks and feels like it's been here forever.
Altogether, it's ten thousand yards of stunning, highly challenging golf. Forest Pines is the home of a magical modern venue with three quality loops of nine holes – Forest, Pines and Beeches – and that tells you all you need to know: trees dominate and cover all routes and tend to attract balls like metal to magnets!
But Forest Pines isn’t all about the timber: there are some interesting water features too with the pond protecting the par-3 7th (Pines) providing plenty of danger – 6,000 balls were fished out of it one year.
Forest Pines is arguably the premier golf hotel in Lincolnshire, its challenging fairways and greens seamlessly rolling through a natural canvas of ancient woods and wild heathland. Forest Pines was designed by PGA Senior Tour player John Morgan.
One of the shining stars of 2-FORE!-1, Forest Pines has gone from strength-to-strength since opening over a decade ago. It’s the impressive home of three loops of nine (Forest, Pines and Beeches), all weaving through a natural canvas of woods and heath. Top facilities too including a classy 188-room hotel.

I played the course during the recent very wet spell and was impressed by the condition it was in; we played of normal tees to proper greens. When I arrived I expected a normal hotel/holiday course having had to drive around the large hotel looking for somewhere to park. The clubhouse and bar are very new and have been recently extended. All the staff were very helpful and all offered to give advice if you looked lost, as I did. I had forgotten my umbrella so went to buy one in the shop but they had sold out. A member of the club was in the shop and loaned me his own umbrella despite having only just met me. Thank you very much. The course was in very good condition despite the rain but the only downside I could think of is that there was a lot of very deep rough in places and, unless you were lucky, you lost a ball if you strayed too far from the fairway. A course guide or local knowledge is essential to playing your best and straight is better then long, every time. I know I will be going back, hopefully when it is dry.
This course rocks - fabulous design excellent condition this is by far one of the best courses you will play, not only in the uk but in the world - you must play it before you through away your clubs!
