Pleasantly surprised

Played on a Saturday morning just as a comp was starting, suggested we play from the 9th which we did. Decent test with above average greens. Course in good condition will return, members are a friendly bunch and a nice bar afterwards, a little on the hilly side but nothing too strenuous.

Challenging Course

First time on this course and really enjoyed playing it. Some very challenging tees which require accurate drives and you have to place the ball well due to the sloping fairways. It was in great condition all around, fairways really well manicured and fast greens. It's a very physical course, you certainly feel like you have had a good workout by the time you finish. My only criticism is that there is no course map and the information on the tees is very basic. We confused the 12th for the 5th and had to retrace our steps having completed it. Otherwise would recommend this course but not for novices or people with physical disabilities unless they use a buggy.

Not the best but okay

Taking the time of year in to account the course was okay. The greens needed a bit of attention and the fairways held a lot of water in places.
Will definitely play it again in the summer.

Good Work In Progress

Having played this course in years gone by and now returning a few times this year, I can see the hard work and intentions to return this to a very decent course. Once the 1st hole is ready again,(maybe during the growing season) with the continued hard work by the green keepers this course will definitely become popular again.

Not what it once was.

The course is not being well maintained, greens aren’t in good condition and there’s quite a few boggy patches around the course. Not sure if they’re ever going to restore the 1st tee to what it once was. If you can ignore all this then the course layout is great.

First time out

My 1st experience of the Beacon beast and although I wouldn’t say it is my last as I appreciate how difficult it is to maintain a course, it was not in great condition. No map on the scorecards, no signage directing next hole and no posts to guide you to the holes on the long par 4/5’s. You will get pretty confused at the course layout whilst it is under reconstruction but confident to remember for next time. The fairways were fairly rough and don’t really carry the ball and the greens were not at a great standard, some in repair and some are very patchy and uneven with excess debris. As it is an open course I found that there was a lot of the general public using the footpaths along the way which then naturally slowed my play as I needed to wait for them to pass as some of the footpaths cross the holes. I believe once this course has been reconstructed and the issues dealt with it would be a great course in a great location. The Beacon will surely rise again

Course conditions

Worst course i have ever played. Diabolical condition. Shouldn’t be taking bookings in the condition it is in. Green keeper admitted that the fairways and greens have not been touched for a month. Could not make out the fairway from the rough. Greens painfully slow due to being so long. Flagsticks removed from fourth hole onwards so hard to work out what to aim for. A lot of work needed. Pic attached of a ‘fairway’. Avoid

Needs a little more work

Beacon park is set in lovely surroundings with some gorgeous views. The course itself has some great holes and the layout is well thought out. However as in a lot of the cases more money and work is needed on the greens/tees and the course generally. To be fair I have played on a lot worse courses and for £20 for a full 18 holes I suppose was value for money. Off the course the bar and cafe has seen better and busier times and the bar now doubles up for the pro shop which has long gone leaving behind a rather large empty room.

Great course

Great course, played a number of times, generally greens in good condition, however very long on this particular visit which made then slow and uneven. Hopefully just a one off.
