Guest Information

Our Club Traditions

Welcome to Forest Creek Golf Club’s page dedicated to providing you, our guest, with information which will be helpful for you during your visit inside our gates. As a guest, we’re here to give you the best possible experience at our first-class facilities and golf courses. Here’s what we expect of our members and guests, as well as a quick overview of our amenities.

On Arrival

Upon arrival please utilize the bag drop, which is located in the circle at the end of Forest Creek Drive. Once unloaded and parked, make your way into our first class locker rooms to change your shoes. The staff will direct you to the Golf Shop where you will check-in for your round.

North

Featuring sprawling sandy waste areas along with rugged bunkers, Fazio gave the North Course a pine barrens feel, drawing comparisons to the famed Pine Valley in New Jersey. Perhaps the toughest and most picturesque challenge of the North Course is the penultimate string of holes (15, 16 and 17) wrapped around a large lake. Each hole offers a unique and invigorating experience.

South

Opened in 1996,Tom Fazio’s South Course drew inspiration from Augusta National’s rolling, parkland style layout. The South Course has an understated appeal, flowing gracefully across the land for an unforced, natural appearance.

Hog Hole

A 37th hole that is a perfect tie-breaker. This mid-length par-3 hole overlooks the water, is right near the clubhouse, and the perfect setting to finish out a day on the course or enjoy the sunset while getting a few extra swings in.

Appropriate golf attire is required for all players:

Men – Collared shirts tucked in, and trousers or Bermuda style shorts (NO denim or cargo pants/shorts)

Hats must be worn with bill forward and straight and gentlemen must remove their hat or visor inside the Clubhouse. Open toed shoes are not allowed for menswear in the Clubhouse.

Our pace of play standard is a 4-hour round. We recognize some golfers prefer to take their time while golfing. If another group of golfers outpaces your play, we ask that you allow them to play through at your next opportunity.
