Forest City Golf Resort - Classic Course

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6527 m / 7138 y | Type Parkland | Architect Liang Guokun

Forest City Golf Resort’s encore to its Legacy Course was completed in 2019 when architect Liang Guokun unveiled his 7,138-yard Classic Course.

It presents a very different challenge. Instead of the Legacy’s more open, naturalistic layout, the Classic Course is an impeccably manicured affair, with narrower fairways, punctuated by sharply etched bunkers and lakes.

But you will need your A-game. The Classic Course demands accuracy from tee to green and provides few safe options for the high-handicapper. There is one route on most holes and all must take it – a daunting prospect when you contemplate a carry over two lake inlets at the par-4 5th or the island green on the par-3 that follows it.

The designer’s use of dramatic fairway mounding is best seen at 14, where he relies solely on undulations to defend the green. Factor in multi-tier greens with breaks that put a heavy premium on accurate approach shots and you face a stern test right to the end of your round.

The 580-yard 18th would make a wonderful climax to a pro tournament but will be a daunting finish for tired amateurs. Play it from anything other than the most forward tee and your ball must find two cape fairways, followed by an island green that’s also ringed with sand. That’s three shots over water on the same hole.

The ‘clubhouse’ for both Forest City Golf Resort courses is the 5-star Forest City Golf Hotel situated at the heart of the resort. It has a café, restaurant, and golf shop. A 26-bay driving range and practice area are also available.

Forest City Golf Resort - Classic Course

First time and overall experience will make me want to play more and more

Reviewed by ; on
Exceptional course with challenging holes each in their own right. Course was in a superb condition and the Greens were challenging on their own. A very very good course and will certainly bring others to play

Good condition but poor safety standards

Reviewed by ; on
The 2 courses are in good condition. Well maintained. Our only gross is that there was no rain check allowed. We had to cancel our 2nd day game due to the heavy rains and lightning. Strange to know that the club allowed people to play even in that condition but at your own risk. In S'pore, no way will any course allow anyone to play in thunderstorm conditions. we take safety seriously.

Enjoyed the 2 days of golf at The Classic & Legacy.

The fairways and greens are in excellent condition. It’s challenging playing from blue tees. It’s a pity that there were no caddies available. Please keep up the good work.

Played Legacy - Course is in pristine condition, greens are fast.

Good experience playing with partners who have not played here before. Some buggies ran out of power during the closing holes and that delayed play a little bit.. Pin location can be challenging so expect longer time for players on the green especially serious golfers.

1st time playing classic course-enjoyed more than Legacy

Reviewed by ; on
Classic course has challenging par 5 for high handicappers and that may require more time to complete the course. Other than that, enjoyed Classic more than Legacy. A shout out to the Marshall and Starters on 15 June, they were very understanding on our slow play on some holes.
