We're closing out the week with one more photo from the southeastern end of the county. Above, we see the main entrance to Forest Oaks on Forest Oaks Drive. We're not sure who the statue is. It could be Ellis Maples, the man who designed and opened the golf course in 1962. In 2002, the course was redesigned by Davis Love III and so the statue could be in recognition of his work. Golfers love the Forest Oaks course and Golf World Magazine rates it a 4.7 out of 5.0. We're betting some of the regulars can tell us more about the statue. There is a statue at the other end of Forest Oaks Drive, too. In 1989, the Forest Oaks Country Club was purchased by a Japanese company, Nisshin Real Estate Company, Ltd. of Tokyo.
Whe whole community of Forest Oaks is about 5 square miles. And as you can see from the last few days, residents take a great deal of pride in their landscaping. We wanted to feature Forest Oaks today because a few homes on this weekend's Tour of Remodeled Homes are in this part of the county. The tour is sponsored by the Greensboro Builders Association and is going on today through Sunday.* Happy weekend, dear readers!
