Savor impeccable cuisine. And celebrate a premier club lifestyle with friends and family. Forest Highlands Golf Club is a community that brings all aspects of our lives together. Relish a world-class culinary experience with our Celebrity Executive Chef, Eddie Matney.
Food is seen by many as a universal language, it acts as a gateway into other cultures. Chef Eddie knows this and builds it into every dish he curates. We salute diversity with each and every location and pop-up station. From the fine dining atmosphere of the Canyon Dining Room to our brand new food truck, there is something for everyone at every time of the day or evening.
