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...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...More

The course was in pretty poor shape except for the greens which were in good shape. The fairways looked like a cow pasture with bare spots and patches. Even foe the $28 rate I would skip it.

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...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...More
