Rankings

Awards and accolades – nice, but certainly not the end-goal for us.

We’re very proud of the accolades that have come our way in the few short years since Forest Dunes Golf Club opened.

Be assured that we’re going to continue to do everything possible to live up to these past accomplishments. These are not attained goals, but mere milestones on the road to continued golf excellence from Forest Dunes.

“Half the holes at Forest Dunes are Augusta National style rolling down majestic corridors of red and jack pines, with elaborate bunkering of gleaming white sand. The remaining holes bring to mind Pine Valley, with dark, exposed native sand littered with scruffy underbrush. The mix is artfully blended on both nines.”
– Golf Digest Architectural Editor Ron Whitten
