Forest Oaks Country Club was rated by PGA TOUR members as a favorite stop on the PGA TOUR. Carved from North Carolina hardwoods by noted architect Ellis Maples, Forest Oaks opened in 1962 to wide acclaim. It was already known as on of the best tests of golf in a state known for great golf tests when it became the home course of the venerable Greater Greensboro Open 1977 -2007. As the golf course matured, alterations to the course were necessary. In 2002, the job of restoring the course to all its glory was assigned to Davis Love III’s Love Design Group.
