January -a Frosty start

January -a Frosty start

Rain interspersed with frost. Hmmm. While surrounding courses are still waterlogged, Forest Hills holds up well. You need to book a tee time though, the days are short and everyone needs to be out in the fresh air getting some exercise. No buggies and trolleys only with Winter wheels are the order of the day.

Our photographer caught our regular Saturday golfers on a frosty morning. There were so many wonderful pictures it was hard to narrow them down.

 

Our photographer is Kathryn from Capture this Moment photography.

December at Forest Hills

‘In the Deep Midwinter’..

Rain, Rain followed by a bit more rain summed up December. Our photographer came out one misty morning and captured our golfers and the Course.

 

 

Still on main greens and only a few temporary tees (3 in total which are moved between holes to even out wear) Forest Hills is one of the most popular places to play during the Winter.

November Pictures

Still Stunning

There is a whole different view on the Course in Winter when a lack of leaves gives longer views across the Course.

Kathryn of Capture this Moment photography has caught it beautifully.

 

Even after heavy rain we have less mud and puddles on the course and between holes. Our expanding network of paths mean that even when the Course is busy, the golf can be enjoyable. Catch a lovely day like the beautiful November morning in the pictures and there’s no better way to enjoy your time.

Autumn is one of the best times in the Forest of Dean. The colours are spectacular as the trees change. For our greenkeepers the leaves create more work – which increases every year as the course matures and the trees all get bigger. This autumn it’s mild, creating lovely golfing conditions.

September on the Golf Course

A Misty morning as the season changes

Our Photographer, Kathryn Goddard of Capture this Moment photography was out one early September morning. With rather more mist than sun she found some Autumn staples and some hardy morning golfers.

As the morning wore on more golfers arrived to enjoy an autumn day.

If you weren’t aware, Forest Hills has excellent natural drainage and is perfect for all year round golf. Watch this space for how we get on throughout Winter.

August on the Golf Course

August on the Golf Course

We’ve chosen an evening for our pictures this month as Summer draws to a close. Sunsets over the clubhouse here and the Course is in full bloom. The rather wet recent weather has ensured lush green grass wherever you look and could there be anything better than a quiet round of golf in the evening sunshine.

July and the Seniors Open 2015

July and the Seniors Open 2015

It’s a friendly affair, the Seniors Open and in 2015 we had our biggest turnout so far. 140 golfers from far and wide came to enjoy a day here at Forest Hills. Lo and behold, the sun even shone all day. The course looked stunning, the food delicious, the organisation superb but it is the excellent company that makes a day so good. We’ll see you all again next year. Kathryn Goddard from Capture this Moment photography was our photographer on the day.
