I've heard it's one of the busiest courses around, and I can attest it probably is. Only played it twice in a year, but was always busy (weekday)....but steady pace. Figure close to 4.5 hours for 18. Nice layout, various holes, not boring back & forth flat golf. Very nice clubhouse. Will play it again.

Dont let the short yardage fool you. If you dont hit the ball straight this narrow little well layed out course will beat you up. Had a good time playing here while working in the area. Ill definitely play it again before my time here is done.

This is a real fun course, well worth the admission.

As long as you dont book a Tee time on Tuesday's This course has a good pace except Tuesday's. If you forget, and book on a Tuesday after 11:00 am. When you figure it out just go back home or to another course. Some folks dont come here to play golf. The food is above avg. The wait staff are very attentive and nice people.

I took my dad here for Father's Day where we played 18 with a cart. I've played Foster many times and it's always been what I would consider a "feel good" course based on difficulty. There are many par 4 holes that are drive-able for better golfers. I play from the men's tees at this course to get a bit more practice on my longer drives. As for amenities, the bar cart gal Shelley is always a pleasure and makes sure our drinks are flowing. Bill Baroo's restaurant and bar in the clubhouse is also a fun spot to get a drink and dinner after your round. Overall, I enjoy the bargain and laid back feel of this course but don't plan on finishing in record time, as this is a slow-moving course most days with a lot of beginner and "social" golfers hitting the links.

Dry and hard. Great pace of play for a Sunday afternoon. Narrow fairways are a challenge if you don't hit it straight (like me). I like this course. Maybe a negative would be some of the bald spots on the greens.
