Hailed as unique among Florida golf courses with rich foliage, heavily forested terrain and lush Bermuda grass reminiscent of North Carolina's classic designs, the newly renovated 18-hole golf course will provide a championship-caliber experience unlike any other in South Florida. Binks Forest Golf Club hosted a PGA tour event in 1990 and was voted a "Top 75 Golf Course" by Golf Digest in 1996..

I had not played Bink's Forest in a year. The conditions simply stink! Crab grass growing everywhere, bare fairways, players never fill in divots (there are loads of trunk slammers that play here because the price is VERY LOW), nothing is cleaned up. This course use to host an LPGA event...my have the "MIGHTY FALLEN". I do not plan on... More

When you book a tee time and the playing fees are less than $30 including cart, your expectations are not very high. The layout is very interesting with well placed fairways bunkers and well protected elevetad greens. The tee boxes and fairways are greatly missing grass. At least the greens were in much better shape. Considering the price,I will return.... More

We played this golf course a week before Christmas. it is one of the best Florida layouts we played but absolutely the worst condition. The tees and fairways are quite overrun with crabgrass. You can find a spot on most fairways to move your ball to, but you will almost always move your ball. The greens is very good for... More

First, I want to clarify, I'm not a member. I was invited to attend an event with a local chamber. At the event, food was served. So this isn't the clubhouse I'm talking about, it's the main eating area they provide for banquets, etc. I'm going to review the food. I think I've tasted better food at a hospital. The... More

I havent picked up clubs in two years, but i did play a lot back then, and on some outstanding courses ... and not some not so good ones. Binks is probably right in the middle.... More

This once beautiful and challenging course has seen hard times...every aspect of the golf course was in bad shape...after recently playing the course.again out of curiosity I was pleasantly surprised to see some definite signs of improvement. The greens were decent compared to what they used to be although very slow..and the fairways and tee boxes showed improvement so that... More

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
