Forest Hills (Augusta, GA)

Forest Hills Golf Club is touted as the best public golf course in the Augusta area. It’s definitely a nice course, especially for the normal rare of $25/round. Of course I played during Masters week, when they jack the price up to $125/round (and included cart, range balls and a pretty meager sandwich).

The track has a nice layout with a good amount of elevation changes (as you might expect from the name), fast and difficult greens, and enough character to keep things interesting. The cart paths are a little in need or repair, but overall the round was quite enjoyable.

There’s some great history at this course as well. Bobby Jones started his Grand Slam here in 1930, and seems to be the current home course of the Augusta State golf team.

The people I interacted with on the course and in the pro shop were all very good natured and helpful.
