Horrible Pace

Ive played nearly every course in Niagara this season and played Beechwood for the 3rd time this year, yesterday. This is by far the WORST pace of play I have ever seen in my life. Im not exaggerating when I say Its a 6 hour round minimum every time. The only course where there are constantly 3 full groups backed up on one tee box. We teed off at 1:30 and were only able to get 9 holes in before dark at 5:15. Waste of time and money (extremely overpriced for its condition to begin with at $70 LOL). A true embarrassment to the game of golf. I will never play here again.

Very interesting holes

I love this course because every hole is different than the other 17. I’d forgotten how much I like to play here and would recommend it to everyone.

Good but not Great

Greens and bunkers need a lot of work. In several greens some varmints put holes in greens. Played in 4.5 hours but it seemed much longer. Waited on every hole. Patrons do not fix ball marks. Fixed several on every hole. Some idiot took chunks out of the green on 17. I did not like that they put the pin near it. The course was in better shape earlier in the year green wise. Parking lot was full, too bad all that money coming in that they cannot buy sand.

Challenging for any level

Tricky layout. Excellent greens with challenging undulations.
Usually play from whites here because blue and gold tee boxes place you in more guarded locations that limit the ability to start the ball for my power draw. When playing from whites I normally play a four hybrid(22*) which is good for 225 yards for me off a tee and more consistent accuracy control. Whites are not to long of a tee set that keeping the big dog in the bag poses a problem as long as you are a strong iron player that can hit your pitching wedge 150 yards consistently on the fly and check it on landing!

Some minor areas are ground under repair but only for the ball strikers with too much dispersion to avoid it! Course management of your golf ball here will definitely lower your score dramatically at Beechwood! Most of the trouble is behind the greens that can easily lead to a lost ball on most holes!

If your not a fan of lots of tree lined fairways and high trees that can easily make a nightmare of a beautiful drive this course may prove too much of a challenge but that is what the skill of course management is all about!

I highly recommend Beechwood for bogey or better golfers that love a challenge and for struggling players that cannot brake 100 consistently there are two shorter tee boxes that will allow you to stay out of trouble easier and still enjoy this beautiful architecture!
