Forest Ridge Golf Club first opened for play in 1989. The par-70 course was designed by Randy Heckenkemper.
Forest Ridge plays to 7,012 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 74.8 and the slope rating is 137.
Hole #1: A compliment of mounds, grass depressions, bunkers and a lake to give the player a preview of things to come. The tee shot should favor the right side of the fairway to avoid the grass depressions on the left.
Hole #2: Your challenge, a fairly narrow landing area cradled with mounds on the left and right. The approach to the green crosses a creek through a narrow gap in the trees. The tee shot here needs to be a straight.
Hole #3: The first of two long Par 3â€™s on the front nine has a green surrounded by mounds, grass depressions and bunkers.
Hole #4: This heavily wooded par 4 will require a solid tee shot played just to the right of a couple of freestanding trees in the left side of the landing area. There are no bunkers.,
Hole #5: A double dogleg Par 5 carved out of the trees, should be played with a right-to-left tee shot to avoid a large fairway bunker on the right. A well placed second shot to a generous landing area will set up a short approach to an elevated green.
Hole #6: A slight dogleg right Par 4.
Hole #7: This Par 3 has a creek that skirts the left side of a green that slopes away from the front.
Hole #8: Avoid the very large grass depressions on the left, a well placed tee shot on this hole will be up the right side against a ridge of mounds.
Hole #9: This hole is a reachable Par 5 from the regular tees. It is just under 500 yards in length, with a generous landing area. However, from the Tournament tees, this hole will play as the longest Par 4 on the course with a drive across the lake.
Hole #10: Most often, your second shot will be blind and very long to an elevated green that features a creek that winds around the green from left to right.
Hole #11: The longest of the Par 5â€™s, at nearly 600 yards.
Hole #12: Another one of the longer Par 4â€™s. The first half of this hole is slightly uphill. The second half is slightly downhill to a narrow green.
Hole #13: A medium length Par 3 with a creek on the right.
Hole #14: One of the shorter Par 4â€™s. Has a slight dogleg right.
Hole #15: The shortest Par 3. Watch out for the creek behind the green
Hole #16: Par 4 that will require an over pond shot to the green.
Hole #17: Par 4 with elevated tees requiring a hit across a creek on your drive.
Hole #18: Final hole, large landing area, go for it.

In my estimation, this is the premier course in Eastern Oklahoma. It is always in great shape. In the fall, the fairways are overseeded with Rye grass and the course can be played year round.
