This is an old hotel/golf resort, under new management (Golf North), in the pretty town of Forest, just 20 min. south of Grand Bend and just east of Lake Huron shore. The golf course is in great shape and fun to play, one 9-hole course and one 18-hole. Good for any range of handicap. The hotel is showing its age but is starting to see upgrades from the new ownership, but it will take some time. Still, our room was clean, well maintained and very reasonable. Food in the restaurant was good, large portions (too large?), and very reasonable. Breakfast is not included in the basic package but you can get the "Express" breakfast for just $5.00. It includes 2 eggs, meat, potatoes, toast. Other menu options are available at all meals. Dinner includes live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays. All prices are quite reasonable,
There is a large conservation (park) area next door with trails and I walked several holes on the golf course in the morning just for exercise. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating.
Hotel and golf are available independently, or as stay/play packages (with or without food options). Restaurant is also open to the public, and they have a small pub in addition. Has an indoor pool, hot-tub, sauna, all very well maintained.
Overall, I would rate this as a bit of a pleasant surprise (3.5 stars). Not a ritzy golf resort but good solid value and a very good golf experience (27 holes).

A group of ladies went there for a 3 day 2 night golf package. Since we had been there several times before we knew that the golf course was good. However, there hadn't been any improvements to the motel and dining since Golf North took over. The pro shop was understaffed to process the golf cart requirements etc. The restaurant food and service were poor and they definitely did not have enough trained staff to serve our group. Most of the dishes were extremely overcooked to the point some were uneatable. I doubt that we will go back until more improvements are made.

Very sad to find out there are no golf lessons here anymore.

One of the few places you can get smoking rooms anymore. Good if you're a smoker.
Those rooms are all over near the pool, so smoke and chlorine odours permeate those hallways.

Front desk is polite but doesn't seem to have much knowledge or be very helpful about what is available/services/area, etc.

They've got a hottub now that is fantastic!!!

Haven't gone out on the course yet so can't speak to that. Will report later.

7 ladies recently enjoyed the "stay and play" package. There are lots of comments here that say the facility needs work, which is true, but the price reflects the condition of the facility. Our rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The patio door screens were ripped, which was an invitation for mosquitos to join us. It is a short course, with no par 5's but there are lots of challenges as water and trees abound. We'll be back.
