Course Description:

Located in Nottinghamshire, England Kilton Forest offers a decent challenge for high and low handicappers alike. There are certainly birdies, and even the odd eagle, to be had here but with some narrow fairways and potentially tricky greens accuracy is the key to success and the risk/reward 18th can make or break a round.

Member Reviews:

Kilton Forest Country Club is a Par71 with a little more than 7000 yards, built within the Boreal Theme. Having played a lot of very tough courses lately, this one was definitely a nice change as it is on the (very) easy side.

It is actually quiet flatish, having almost no differences in altitude. But that's okay, because the general hole layout/design is quiet diversified, also regarding the length of the holes. Just a little bit of everything! The greens and pin positions are not tricked up at all, you can almost shoot at all pins directly. Just do your "maths" right!

Altough they didn't come into (my) play, I really liked what the course designer did with the bunkers. Right spots mostly, decent depth, really good work there.

The one thing I'd criticise the most at Kilton Forest CC is that it looked like some of the rough sections were auto-generated, resulting in some transitions/blendings not looking so good (as you might be used to from many other courses).

Summary: It was really fun to play this course. You can go really, really low here. I'd say it's maybe a little bit too easy to make it a tour worthy course (even for the lower tours). But for a fun round with/against your friends, this course is definitely worth a try.

Great course for some fun low scoring rounds, great design some narrow landing areas on a couple shots if the wind is blowing. I think it's a bit too easy for the tours but definitely worth checking out a few times and playing greens were nicely laid out and nice bunkering.
