Forest Hills Golf Club, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Forest of Dean, has an undulating parkland Course, quite challenging but playable by golfers of all abilities. The Course was designed and built in the 1970’s and extended a few years later, so the 1000’s of trees planted by the original members are now mature, giving pleasant scenery and challenging hazards, enhanced by some bunkers and ponds!
The club house is extremely spacious, giving one of the biggest dining areas in the Forest of Dean. The Civil Wedding license means couples can get married and enjoy their reception all on our ground floor, with picturesque sites for photos just outside. A large car-park and easy access make this an excellent place for gatherings of all kinds, with Wedding Anniversary parties being extremely popular as access for anyone with mobility problems is excellent.
Local people and visitors are welcome in the clubhouse, even if they don’t play golf. The kitchen is open for bar meals during the day, with a special roast meal served for senior citizens each Tuesday lunchtime. Groups often come for lunch, and can pre-book on any day of the week from our special menu, available in advance on request. On Sundays the golf club hosts an extremely popular Sunday carvery, with the spacious restaurant setting, freshly made, locally sourced food and choice from 3 meats and a host of accompaniments, this is perfect for family meals and get togethers. Recently family bookings have become more popular with groups of up to 60 booking for a Sunday Carvery meal.
The golf club has a thriving membership and variety of sections for those who want to play regularly. Two of the main benefits of membership at Forest Hills are the fact that the Course has excellent drainage, meaning it rarely closes due to weather and Golf can be played all year round. 12 months membership really does mean 12 months golf. The club also run competitions on Saturday and Sundays on a weekly basis, and for those working shifts, there is also a Wednesday stableford competition. Club nights on Tuesday evenings during the summer season and mixed competitions on Bank holidays give everyone the opportunity to play in competitions. Other benefits of membership include a reciprocal agreements with another 4 clubs in the Midlands, where golf is free (although a meal should to be bought), seniors golf twice a week, Ladies competitions on Wednesdays and Saturdays, a talented junior section guided by our Golf Professional.
The golf shop is open to all golfers and non golfers and arguably stocks the warmest wind proof pullovers you can get! In an area of the country where walking, especially dog walking and outdoor activities are so popular, the shop stocks the best waterproof clothing possible. On a Course that is open despite the rain you need clothes that can keep you dry and warm. They get well tested! Of course, a full range of clubs, balls and other golfing accessories are also available in stock or to order, and clubs can be fitted to help that perfect swing.
