Do I have to be a member to golf, have a meal, or Host an Event at Lake Forest?
No, we are a public golf course that is locally owned and operated! Everyone is welcome! Golf attire is preferred. Not cut-offs or T-shirts.
Are golf carts available?
Yes, golf carts are available and carts may be shared.
How do I make a tee time?
For tee time reservations, click on “Tee Times” on this site. All tee times and carts are easily paid online. We suggest adding a credit card to your customer profile for ease of future purchases. A Pro Shop attendant may facilitate that for you.
What is your tee time cancellation policy?
All guests are responsible for their reserved and paid tee times. You may change your tee time by logging back into your customer profile. You may also call the pro shop to cancel or move your tee time. A gift card will be issued for all prepaid tee times that are canceled 24 hours in advance. There are no refunds, rain-checks, gift cards issued for “no-shows” or for tee times canceled less than 24 hours in advance.
Can I use cash?
Yes, of course! For your convenience, credit and debit cards may be used for any purchase in the clubhouse, at the range ball dispenser, and purchases from the beverage cart.
Where do I go to check-in for my round?
Please see an outside golf services attendant once you arrive at the golf course. They will be stationed near the front putting green. If the attendant is not there, please check-in at the Pro Shop.
Where can I get a scorecard?.
Scorecards are located in the clubhouse and from the outside golf services attendant. We suggest using the free Lake Forest Golf app for scoring, which can be downloaded here. (ADD LINK to ANDROID AND APPLE STORE)
The app also provides on-course and on-the-range yardage, as well as a direct link to scheduling future tee times.
