The Black Forest Course at Wilderness Valley Golf Resort Ratings & Reviews
about 2 months ago
Starting out from the same clubhouse, the Black Forest and Wilderness Valley golf courses are both well-rated and always popular places to play. On the Black Forest layout, Tom Doak's first example of minimalist golf course architecture, each hole is carved through a canvas of pine, oak, and maple trees. The dramatic bunkering on Black Forest contrasts with the verdant forest backdrop. Definitely a golf club to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Everything everyone is saying is true, this place is the worst condition golf course I have ever played. You can see how it was once nice, the layout is nice, but it is long gone of any quality. Greens don't roll, they bounce, sand traps are dirt and rock, there were no holes cut in their putting green, and the grass on the greens was longer than most fairways. The driving range was a grass rough area, wide enough for three to four people, and into some rough and sand. I don't even know how they pick up the balls.They were literally mowing the fairways with your standard Jon Deere riding lawn mower. This course needs to step it up or close, but they can't continue with the way it is now.

Wilderness Valley was wild. Greens were shot (requiring aeration and much sand in soil to restore the grass surface), and bunkers (sand traps) were mixed with bear ground, weed growth, rocks and packed ground. It was wilderness all right. My request for refund fell on the deaf ear. It will not surprise me if they close the Wilderness Valley very soon. It is a shame to call it a golf course.
