Course Overview

The Forrest Creason Golf Course, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is easily considered one of the best manicured courses in Northwest Ohio. This semi-private course is offered to the public, as well as all BGSU students, and features a complete irrigation system and several white silica sand traps. Strategically positioned water hazards and newly renovated bunkers challenge the shot making abilities of even the best of players. However, with four sets of tees Forrest Creason remains playable regardless of skill level. 

Without question one of the most talked about aspects of a round of golf at Forrest Creason are the views. Set among the athletic facilities of Bowling Green State University (Doyt Perry Stadium, Sebo Athletic Center, Meserve Softball Field, Keefe Tennis Courts, Stellar Baseball Field, Cochrane Soccer Field, and the BGSU Ice Arena) Forrest Creason offers a unique palate of natural beauty and iconic features.
