Explore the Course

The Forest Course was designed by Rees Jones and opened in 1995.

Fantastic panoramic views are a welcoming beginning to the round. Off the tee, the player must keep the ball away from the smartly placed deep fairway bunkers. The greens are generous but are well guarded by more deep bunkering in the greens surrounds. The Forest Course offers a serene experience where you feel you might not be in the Garden State but somewhere in the foothills in the Carolinas.

Hole #3

Par: 4

329 319 299 281

A medium length par 5 which is reachable by the longest players. A drive down the left-hand side will take advantage of the left-to-right sloping fairway. Avoid the bunker and you should have an opportunity for birdie.

Hole #4

Par: 4

402 382 354 287

This uphill par 4 always plays longer than the yardage. Keep the ball below the hole on your approach for the best opportunity to score.

Hole #5

Par: 4

451 431 405 286

This long, demanding par 4 has a generous fairway which the player must hit to have the best opportunity to hit this green to reach regulation. A steep bank guards the back of the green, so long is not an option.

Previous Next

Hole #6

Par: 3

180 169 152 118

A large, well bunkered green is receptive to a mid-iron tee shot.

Previous Next

Hole #7

Par: 4

439 421 396 289

Another long par 4 where hitting the fairway is a must. The best approach to this narrow green is on the right-hand side because the ball will tend to bounce left.

Previous Next

Hole #8

Par: 3

183 165 145 125

A long bunker guards this well-designed green in front, making club selection crucial for finding the putting surface. Once on the green, the player will be challenged by one of the most demanding, undulating greens on the course.

Previous Next

Hole #9

Par: 5

583 561 522 423

This long par 5 requires 3 shots to reach the green. A large bunker guards the front of this over-sized, rolling, two-tiered green, and will catch any short approach shots.

Previous Next

Hole #10

Par: 4

392 369 342 286

This shorter par 4 requires accuracy off the tee. Once in the fairway, the green is a receptive target, but a miss right will test the best player’s short game.

Previous Next

Hole #11

Par: 5

506 485 460 395

A short par 5 requires a well-positioned tee shot. Long hitters will have a chance to go for the green in two, but the uphill approach shot requires extra club. The green slopes from back to front and rewards those who leave the ball beneath the hole.

Previous Next

Hole #12

Par: 4

425 379 353 279

This dogleg left demands two forced carries, both from the tee to the fairway, and from the fairway to the green. There is little room for error anywhere along the way.

Previous Next

Hole #13

Par: 3

157 141 129 111

A shorter 3 par will challenge your ability to determine wind direction, with swirling winds abound. The green is deeper than it appears and is receptive to a well-struck short iron.

Previous Next

Hole #14

Par: 4

466 447 422 385

Uphill and often into the wind, the player is rewarded with a shorter second shot after a drive up the right-hand side. The approach shot must avoid the deep bunker left of the green.

Previous Next

Hole #15

Par: 4

379 352 307 278

This short par 4 gives the player a great opportunity for birdie. A well struck drive will reward the player with a short iron approach.

Previous Next

Hole #16

Par: 4

415 390 367 291

A challenging par 4 that demands a tee shot into the fairway. Aim at the large tree off the tee and you will have a straightforward approach to a difficult green.

Previous Next

Hole #17

Par: 3

194 174 154 125

An intimidating par 3 that is our signature hole. There is some room to the left of the green, however, in order to hit the green, your tee shot has to take on the full length of the water.

Previous Next

Hole #18

Par: 5

602 559 549 432

The tee shot on this long par 5 must avoid the lake on the right of the fairway. A longer second shot will set up a short iron into this well guarded, multi-tiered green.
