DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Golf & Spa Resort

Since it opened in 1996, Forest Pines has gone from strength to strength and quickly established itself as a genuine tournament venue. The course itself is now ranked inside the UK and Ireland's top 100, a position it deserves due to both its impeccable condition and stunning layout. Found amidst nearly 200 acres of tranquil Lincolnshire woodland, Forest Pines feels a million miles away from the real world, but can be easily accessed by car and is just 30-minutes from Lincoln. 

In addition to the glorious golf course, the resort also boasts 188 luxurious en-suite bedrooms which are the perfect place to rest up after what is certain to have been an excellent round of golf. Forest Pines also benefits from the fact there is plenty to do if you don't play golf as it has a state of the art Health, Fitness and Spa centre which is available for all hotel guests to use at their leisure, as well as excellent on-site dining.

Forest Pines Golf Club

Designer John Morgan, once a player on the PGA Tour, carved out some tremendous holes from the towering pines that are so characteristic of the landscape.

The course is compiled from three separate nine-hole loops called the Pines, the Beeches and the Forest, with the different combinations adding welcome variety to a golf break. Regarded as the finest golfing venue in Lincolnshire if not beyond, Forest Pines superb layout is well worth a visit.

With the recent completion of the £10 million refurbishment plan, the hotel and resort facilities at Forest Pines are now a match for the outstanding golf course - the complete package for a fantastic golf break.

Forest Pines' excellent golfing layout is embellished by the superb practice facilities, where visiting players can choose to sharpen their skills, or take some personal advice from the team of PGA professionals.

A superb hotel with five star facilities...

We had a fantastic time at Forest Pines. The 3 9 hole courses were all superb so thank you so much for your high recommendation...did you order the great weather for us as well!? 

I can’t praise YGT enough for the excellent service and the golf break was great value for money too. Forest Pines has a superb hotel with five star facilities including the spa and the pool. The restaurants were nice with great food and friendly service too...the staff could not have been more helpful.

We can’t recommend this venue enough and shall definitely be going again. The trip scored a definite 10 out of 10 in all aspects, not only the golf course and hotel but great value for money and service from YGT.

Suitable for all levels...

Have recently returned from a golf break at Forest Pines so thought I’d get in touch.

The course was in excellent condition with true greens which were running at a decent speed. The golf at Forest Pines is suitable for all levels. Although all three courses are heavily tree lined, you rarely seem to be hunting for golf balls!

Staff were friendly and accommodating at the hotel and the food also very good. 

All in all, this is a venue I would certainly recommend for visiting parties!

My wife and I enjoyed the hotel at Forest Pines. Great breakfasts! 

The three nine hole golf courses were in good condition and were really fun to play, although they can get a bit tight at times!

Fairways like carpets...

We had a really good break at Forest Pines and as usual, you guys at YGT didn’t let us down with your recommendation!

All 3 loops of 9 holes were of equally great condition and very well kept with fairways like carpets, even during the spell of hot weather of late. All of the greens run very true and smooth as well.

Forest Pines is certainly a good challenge and although you do need to be straight, there are certainly a few birdie chances; maybe even an eagles if you are ok with a fairway wood!

We all found the clubhouse very welcoming and spent quite a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching other golfers come down the stretch with a cold beer on the go, the prices for which were slightly high but not extortionate.

Food in the restaurant was of great quality – dined once in restaurant – and on our second night
we dined in the clubhouse area as this was great value for money.

All of the guestrooms were of good standard too and we used all the leisure areas as well to chill and unwind which was a bonus.

All members of staff were friendly and you could quickly build a good rapport with them which is important in such a setting.

I’ve already recommended Forest Pines to others and would give it a 9/10 overall...very
much one we would go back to.

Hope this all reads ok and thanks again,we will be doing more trips and will certainly be in contact with Your Golf Travel again.

What a great venue...

What a great venue Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort is. Easy access from M180 and good signposting made our journey there a piece of cake. The Hotel has quality in every department. Food, rooms, staff...all very good.

The golf course was in excellent condition and was enjoyed by all different handicap players in our group (from 5 – 24). The 19th hole was welcoming and the beers were sold at reasonable prices.

The Overall verdict from all of the group was 10/10.

Our golf break to Forest Pines was brilliant. Members of staff are all extremely friendly and made our stay comfortable to say the least. The menu in the restaurant seemed to be a bit limited but the food was excellent; couldn’t fault it at all.

The golf courses were all beautiful (there are 3 nine hole loops) and the greens were very well kept indeed.

We found the hotel easily so no problems there and the rooms were large and very comfortable.

Overall I would book with your recommendations again and would certainly go back to Forest Pines in the future.

Overall we were very happy with our experience...

The Hotel staff at Forest Pines are exceptional and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts are very good and the dinners are tasty. Beer was reasonably priced too about about £3.75 per pint.

As for the golf courses, we found the Forest and Pines courses a bit similar in the challenges they set. You had to be fairly long and accurate off the tees and were still left with long irons in for the majority of holes. I’d recommend perhaps playing from more forward tees to maximise enjoyment.

The Beeches course offered more in the way of variety and although there were two very long par 4s, some of the holes were shorter and doglegged. We thought this was the most enjoyable of the three courses.

Overall we were very happy with our experience.

We would return without hesitation...

Let me start by saying a big thank you for arranging our trip to the Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort. It has been a pleasure to deal with your golf travel.

We were very surprised on how easy and quick we were able to arrive at the hotel, easy parking both at the hotel and the Golf club. The hotel is well signposted too and just of Junction 4 of the M180.

The course consists of 3 9hole courses: Forest (3291yds), Pines (3551yds) and Beeches (3102yds) and although the courses run parallel, they are entirely separated by stands of trees. The tee boxes and fairways were well cut and well looked after, the greens are excellent and undulating with many featuring at least two tiers.

We purchased a Strokesaver Course guide and it was invaluable in negotiating the course so I’d recommend doing the same for other first timers. The water features are intimidating but negotiable, bunkers and lateral water ditches are well marked, but as I found to my cost the deep pot bunkers are nasty!!

The hotel was what you would expect from a 5star establishment with reception courteous and friendly, superb food and an excellent overall presentation. Prices are what you should expected from this standard of hotel; expensive but not overly so.

The four of us were all agreed we would return without hesitation.

The best resort overall we have visited so far...

Golf Course – Very good condition, greens all very nice, lots of trees making many fairways tight, a difficult but great course.

Clubhouse/19th hole – About £4 per pint and food expensive too but a great balcony overlooking the course to enjoy a few drinks on.

Hotel – The hotel was very good, the rooms were clean and modern, the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Location – Very easy to find and park.

Overall verdict - I would rate Forest Pines at 9/10, the best resort overall we have visited so far.

Would I recommend YGT to a friend? Yes!
