I played there for the first time and was impressed, at first, by the good condition of the buildings. However once inside things started downhill. The musty mildew odor was quite strong and no way to greet members, or guests. The course itself is in bad shape. The fairways have more weeds than grass and the greens are in poor... More

There was time when this was my go to golf course here in Wellington, with its challenging layout and previously well maintained course, it was a real golf deal for the $40 green fee. Unfortunately the good times are clearly in the rearview mirror. The course is incredibly poorly kept, from sandy and patchy tee boxes to overgrown burnt greens,... More

Nice Golf course in Wellington….lots of tight fairways and landscaped beautifully ! Course has been in town for well over 20 years , but always fun !!The 18th is my favorite cause if you make the green everyone in the clubhouse can see your shot …over water to a tight green !!!

This was a very nice course at one time . Today it is barely playable . What a shame . The clubhouse & banquet rooms have been maintained & are very nice .

A wonderful golf course in a beautiful setting. Not to crowded and the staff treats you very well. Beautiful trees and some nice par 5's.

Poorly laid out unchallenging and completely unmaintained. If greens fees weren't so cheap it would be a joke. Pro Shop...if you can call it that is a complete embarrassment...

I have played Binks Forest for a long time. They have struggled of late and have dropped the green's fees quite a bit. That is the good news. The bad news is that the course is not in the best shape. If you do not care about how much grass is on the greens, go for it.

We went and played at my friends insistence, something told me not but how bad could it be. We went to Can Am golf. net and got some decent prices, But when you end up saying no wonder it was so cheap. I thought we were in jungle city with the quantity of mosquitos I killed over 20 blood filled... More

It's not in the same condition as it was back in the day of the Sazale Classic, but the layout is the same, and still a challenging course for all levels of player, offering a decent challenge from the back tees for low handicap players (but also a good place to shoot a very low score if maintenance allows for...

I had played Binks Forest Golf Course a few years ago. I always found in an enjoyable tract and well kept. HOWEVER, that has all changed. Played there this past weekend, (March,31,2013) and its in terrible condition. I should have known from the condition of the practice green that it was going to be terrible. The fairways are a mess... More
