Forest Pines (Forest & Pines) - Golf Course in England

About Forest Pines (Forest & Pines)

Apart from seacroft in skegness and luffenham heath near rutland water, lincolnshire is home to one of the world's best inland courses, and woodhall spa is also home to the english golf union, but the fenland county has nothing to brag about. That is, before forest pines golf & country club, near scunthorpe, opened its 27 tees for play in 1996.

Forest pines was designed by englishman and pga tour player john morgan, who died in june 2006 after a long battle with a brain tumor. He was rightfully proud of the course, particularly because golf world named it the best new golf course in england since 1994.

Forest pines has a touch of woburn and a smidgeon of wentworth, and it's a common and fun casual business and community venue with 27 holes. Land, pines, and beeches are three nine-hole loops that begin and finish at the clubhouse, twisting and turning through the pines along the way. The forest and pines style, which measures 6,859 yards from the ends, is the highest and most difficult mix. The shorter beeches circle, with three one-shot holes, is an excellent warm-up before the championship test.

âĢľbeing a minimalist, john [morgan] has crafted a refreshingly old fashioned course, one to please the purists,âĢĿ said barry ward, travel editor of golf monthly. The mounded bunkering, for example, has more than a touch of braid, and the greens have a hint of mackenzie.âĢĿ
