The Forest Heights Country Club Golf Course is recognized as one of the finest in the Southeast. Forest Heights is the site of the Annual Southeastern Amateur Golf Tournament. Our Club is the proud host to the Chris Schenkel/E-Z Go Invitational, and has hosted the Southern Conference Tournament, the GA. State Golf Association Four-Ball Tournament, and many more. The course conditions and course layout make the course enjoyable to play year round for all levels of golfers. From the championship tees, the yardage measures out to 6962 yards, and challenges even the most skilled golfer. Although the tee shots are relatively forgiving, most of the golfers work begins when they reach the undulating greens. The greens have very subtle breaks that make them very difficult to read and putt. This makes scoring low a tough task over what seems to be an “easy course”.
During the late 40?s several community business leaders agreed that Statesboro should have a Country Club where the more genteel of our society should entertain themselves with their friends in a round of golf and the finer society issues of the day. Thus, Forest Heights Country Club was born in 1947 with 200 local citizens joining the club.
The Club enlisted the assistance of noted golf course architect, George Cobb, to route and build the first golf course in Bulloch County. Mr. Cobb laid out a nine hole golf course utilizing two sets of tees to complete the 18 hole golf course. Throughout the fifties and early sixties, Forest Heights Country Club was recognized for having the best golf course in the surrounding area. The Southeastern Invitational Golf Tournament was born in Statesboro and became one the the area’s leading sporting events.
Today, Forest Heights Country Club is the leader in our area in country club living. From the outstanding dining facilities, banquet facilities, fitness, tennis and golf, Forest Heights offers something for everyone.
