About Forsyth Country Club
Forsyth Country Club is a private club that opened in 1913 as a 9-hole golf course designed by A.W. Tillinghast. In 1923, Donald Ross completed the 18-hole design, which was later restored in 2006 by Kris Spence. The golf course consists of Champion Ultradwarf Bermudagrass, 419 Bermuda grass fairways and rough and many Zorro Zoysiagrass tee complexes. In 2018, Forsyth completed major renovations to the golf course that included a greens conversion to Champion Ultradwarf Bermudagrass, resurfacing collars and approaches to Latitude 36 Bermudagrass, new short game facility, converting all bunkers to the Better Billy Bunker system with new sand, and dredging a pond on property.
