Forest Park Golf Course first opened for play in 1934. Originally a 9-hole golf course, the course was redesigned and expanded to 18 holes in the early 1990's. The designe was done by Gus Hook.
Forest Park is now a combination of two styles and challenges. The original front nine winds through a wooded landscape and tests even the most skilled players with tight fairways, imposing trees and hilly terrain. The course opens up during the back nine, allowing players to make up a few shots they may have lost on the front nine. This course claimes to have the largest sand bunker on the East Coast.
Forest Park Golf Course measurses 6,127 yards from the back tees and plays to a par-71.

There are no water hazards on this course. You still have plenty of opportunities to get into trouble. Large and receptive greens on the par 3's. If managed the course will allow you to shoot a low score. The clubhouse is new and the food is great. Chicken and waffles are recommended. Because of the value I drive past at least 4 golf courses to play this one.

Forest Park is your typical muni course. Fairways are not the best, but green are in pretty good shape. Not an exceptionally hard course, but isn't that what most golfers want in a muni? Currently, the Baltimore Golf Association that runs the City's courses is putting some money into this course, so it should improve next year. A new clubhouse is almost complete, and work on the course itself is underway.
