We love your kind words. We won’t rest on our laurels.
In this business, there’s no resting on laurels. Here at Forest Dunes Golf Club, we have no intention of doing any such thing!
It matters not what these folks (below) thought of our golf course when you are out there. We’re only as good as the last round played here and we’re committed to making every golfers’ round as perfect as possible.
Thank you for your kind words. We’ll continue to work to live up to them.
"If planning on going to Michigan to golf, Forest Dunes is a 'must play' course. The course layout is excellent, conditions are amazing, customer service top notch. And the practice area rocks! It's worth the drive from where ever your base is." — Liz Kline
“The reasons why I love playing Forest Dunes are probably too many to list. The serenity coupled with the natural landscape and beauty are unlike any other. The fairways are like most courses’ greens and the playability and challenge make it both a true test and a truly enjoyable experience at the same time.”— Mike Kleiner
“I know exactly what type of course I am going to play. You pay top dollar and you get top dollar golf. This course does not disappoint! Every hole feels right, every employee treats you with respect, no detail is overlooked. It is challenging, yet playable. It is beautiful, but not overly distracting. It is a perfect setting for a perfect golf course.”— Chuck Pinter
“What is heaven like? Travel to Roscommon, Michigan and golf Forest Dunes and you will find out. Rolling fairways, immaculate greens and first class service await you at the first tee. Wildlife passes you by on each and every secluded hole and don’t forget the world class clubhouse that takes ones’ breath away as soon as you lay eyes on it. Forest Dunes is where memories of a lifetime are made and championship golfers are tested.“— Bob Garvelink
“I love playing Forest Dunes because it’s unlike any golf course I’ve ever played; it is truly a golfers paradise. It’s a course that challenges golfers and makes them think about each shot. The views are absolutely breathtaking from the first hole to the last. The service the staff gives its golfers is remarkable. If I could play one course for the rest of my life it would be Forest Dunes.” — Steven O'Keefe
“No. 18 is one of the best finishing holes I've ever played. The hole provides the player with a chance to score on the closing hole, but also the chance to put up a monster number as well. I've birdied it and also put up a nine after hooking it into the dunes on the right and then subsequently blocking a three wood into the lake! More important for me though, the beauty and challenge of the hole leaves a memorable imprint of the course, which leaves me thirsting for another crack at it. A great closing hole can separate good golf courses from great ones. This hole couldn't be any better.” — JJ Sovinsky
"I just wanted to thank you one more time for the outstanding hospitality you and your staff showed us this past weekend at the Member/Guest tournament. Forest Dunes is absolutely a world class golf course and facilities. I have played several top ranked courses including Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Southern Hills, Pinehurst, Caledonia in Myrtle Beach, and Forest Dunes is absolutely at the top of my list for one of the best courses I have ever played. Jim and his staff are to be commended for the tremendous job they do with course maintenance and the attention to detail rivals any course I have ever played. All of the staff members were professional, courteous and attentive to my every need during my time at your resort. Donny did a great job putting on a fun and challenging tournament this past weekend and was always available and helpful during the event. Thanks again to the entire staff at Forest Dunes for making this a lifetime memorable event for me. I will be looking forward to the next opportunity I have to come and play this outstanding course in the future." — Bill Polk
"I have been fortunate enough to play some of the best golf courses from coast to coast: From Cypress Point and Olympic Club, to Chicago Golf and Pine Valley, along with many others. I would place Forest Dunes in my top ten, and my clear favorite among public courses anywhere. Every hole offers a hit-a-way feel from the tee box and a variety of challenges through the green, but it's the strong finish on 17 & 18, with the risk/reward temptations that bring the round to an exciting finish. I would recommend to anyone, that unless you plan to play two rounds, you'll leave wanting another try at all this course gives you." — Scott Jacobs
“Given that Arcadia Bluffs is ranked No. 10 among the 100 Greatest Public, I decided to play it twice. If I had a mulligan, I'd play Forest Dunes twice instead. I've always thought Spyglass Hill, from start to finish, is a better course than Pebble Beach. Likewise, I would contend that Forest Dunes is a more complete course than Arcadia Bluffs, though it's not nearly as impressive visually.
“My favorite hole at Forest Dunes is the 278-yard 17th, a classic Weiskopf reachable par 4. Although it looks vulnerable from the tee, the small green is protected by bunkers, and there's plenty of room for a big score. (Typical of my round, I hit my drive into a greenside bunker and made double bogey.)
“Stubborn but fair, combining high risk with rare reward, Forest Dunes joins Bethpage Black in New York, Pasatiempo in California, Pine Needles in North Carolina and Pacific Dunes in Oregon among my top-five public courses in the country.” — Matt Ginella, Golf Digest Senior Travel Editor
