Food and Beverage Policies

Thank you for choosing Forest Akers Golf Course for your outing. Please read the following policies carefully:

  • A room rental fee of $300.00 may be applied to your final bill. If food purchases exceed the rental fee the fee will be waived.
  • Forest Akers reserves the right to relocate any function to an alternate room or location within the complex.

If a guarantee is not received by the agreed upon date, Forest Akers will consider your last estimated number of attendees as the guarantee.  Positively no reductions in guarantee will be accepted less than three business days prior to the event.
  • Forest Akers will be prepared to serve 5% over the guarantee number. If the guarantee is exceeded you will be billed for the served extra meals.
