If you watch golfnow.com and there is a good rate this is a great place to play if you don't mind driving to Wellington. The greens and tee boxes are well maintained.

I had not played Bink's Forest in a year. The conditions simply stink! Crab grass growing everywhere, bare fairways, players never fill in divots (there are loads of trunk slammers that play here because the price is VERY LOW), nothing is cleaned up. This course...More

The course was in pretty poor shape except for the greens which were in good shape. The fairways looked like a cow pasture with bare spots and patches. Even foe the $28 rate I would skip it.
