Forest Golf Club and Inn – My greatest value play

By Mike Johnny | Course Reviews

Forest Golf Club and Inn http://www.golfforest.ca/ It’s a subtle re-brand, changing the name from Forest Golf and Country Hotel to Forest Golf Club and Inn.  New course ownership, under the GolfNorth consortium is bringing about some changes but what remains the same is 27 holes and some of Ontario’s best value in golf.  You won’t […]
