King's Forest is proud to have been named the No. 1 municipal golf course in Canada by SCOREGolf Magazine!
SCOREGolf TV and host Bob Weeks visited Chedoke Civic GC and King’s Forest GC in June for a feature episode on the two municipal facilities that feature 54 holes of golf. Check out the TV program that aired on TSN2 here.
Designed by former City of Hamilton Parks Foreman Matt Broman, with input from Chedoke Head Professional Rod Goodes, the course opened for play in the fall of 1973. Broman also did the redesign of the Beddoe course in 1961. King's Forest measures 7,150 yards, par-72 from the tips with a rolling layout that features some terrific elevated tee shots, lots of challenging doglegs and six holes cross the Red Hill Creek. The addition of irrigation ponds and significant improvements to the Red Hill Creek, which winds its way through the property, in 2009 have only added to the challenge.
Located in the heart of the picturesque Red Hill Valley and at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment, King's Forest Golf Club is without doubt one of the premier public golf facilities in the country. It's also one of the busiest, averaging 42,000 rounds annually over the last five years.
"In my estimation there isn't a golf course in Canada that has been more under-acknowledged while over-delivering a superior test of golf at a great price point better than King's Forest."SCOREGolf ranker Rick Young
