"I considered many other country clubs in the Ft Myers, Estero, Bonita springs area and found The Forest and our two courses The Bear and the Bobcat the most challenging, and features that are very untypical of Florida with the character of long standing country club. The Bear and the Bobcat are markedly different with The Bear at a higher degree of difficulty than the Bobcat but still just as challenging. Within weeks of becoming a member I was invited to play in at least 10 different groups, which included members at various handicap levels. Its a course where it is easy to make friends, and always get a game. The tenure of the staff is exceptional, and they couldn’t be more friendly or accommodating."

"The Forest Country Club is a true golfing community, financially strong, with 36 holes of the best golf in Southwest Florida. It's most important in choosing a club to really understand the value of a 36 holes facility; the proximity to the airport, the beach and social activities."
- Kathy and Ron Slater, Middleton, WI & Fort Myers, FL
"We joined The Forest based on the ability for both of us to receive tee times at any time on two fantastic golf courses. An extra bonus has been the wonderful club atmosphere and friendliness of the membership and staff. The Forest is second to none!"
- Diane and Tom Coleman of Garden City, MI & Bonita Springs, FL
A wonderful aspect of being a member at The Forest Country Club is knowing our staff is on "top of the leader board." Without reservation, I think everyone who works at The Forest is committed to doing their very best, is unselfish, extremely helpful, is very good at what they do and is willing to go the extra mile to help the club and the membership. There is a sense of family and sharing. Not something you will find at other places. This is really special."

"Throughout the ‘80s, Nancy and I vacationed regularly in southwest Florida. When we realized that the Fort Myers area was bound to be in our future, we started looking at gated communities that offered 36 holes of golf, a solid tennis program, decent lot sizes, and mature vegetation. We found it all at The Forest as well as it being warm, welcoming, and friendly. We felt at home instantly and twenty-six years later we have found no reason to change our minds."
- Nancy & Bill O'Flaherty of Port Severn, ON & Fort Myers, FL
"The Forest doesn't bring together just golf members, it fosters a community of belonging and friendship - and as Canadians it's the reason we have stayed here. It's become our second home. We have been members of The Forest Country Club since 2009. We enjoy all the amenities and unique approach of the club, from extraordinary dining to fun and exciting social events, The Forest has been a part of our daily lives when we are at our home in Florida. We can't rave enough about golfing two exceptional golf courses, while enjoying the Club and all it has to offer. We simply love it here and look forward to Canadian Winters so we can spend time with our friends in Florida and at The Forest!"
- Julie & Gerry Riddell of Etobicoke, ON & Fort Myers, FL
