7 reviews of Beamish Park Golf Club
A very good secluded golf course where you feel a million miles away from the hurly burly of the modern world.
The course is very attractive with some cracking individual holes. But it is a very hilly course and should not be tackled by the unfit (unless you have a buggy) and as other people have said the the walk up the hill on the 18th is as severe as anything you well come accross.
The greens are excellent and the general condition good. A cracking day out
we played at beamish on wednesday 14th may, 2008 and i have to report it was a fantastic course to play!
it was a mens open day so my partner and I both played for only £8 each (an absolute bargain).
the course isnt particulary long but it is VERY hilly in places with the climb to the 18th being very steep! the greens were in descent condition and the fairways were well manicured. the rough had been left to grow and punished any wayward shot so keeping your tee shots straight was the key to a low scoring round here!
all the holes are interesting and present beautiful views all the way across durham. the 15th is a very tough hole and makes you really think about what club to take on the tee box and the 16th is a lovely par 3.
all in all we had a fantastic day and i wouldnt hesitate in playing at beamish again!
one final thought, i have to strongly disagree with the last reporters comments on the steak and ale pie! i had one after play and found it to be VERY tasty!
if you in the area cough up the 20 quid to play this challenging little gem!!!
I was a member of a society that played Beamish on the 28th of April 2008.Because of the clubs terrain,which is very hilly and the fact it had been raining 24hrs beforehand,for safety purposes buggies could only be used for holes 3 to 13.The greens were in excellent condition even though fertilser had just been put down. The 18th must have one of the steepest climbs i have ever come across, and i have played golf around the world.The catering however lets the club down, in steak and ale pie you can play hunt the meat, there is some,gravy and a flaky pasty top but that is all which was a pity because after all of the hill climbing you need a good meal but the beer made up for it.jim butler
Two of us played this course on 28 March 2008 (9 & 21 Handicaps) at the end of a wet and miserable winter. The course itself was near immaculate with exceptional greens for the time of year. Good fairways, receptive greens and some beautiful scenery. There are some tricky holes, some picturesque holes and most importantly a particulary daunting elevated tee shot off the 16th into a low valley.
It is just a shame that this course is only playable during the week for visitors or else it would be much more widely appreciated. However, for £15 (winter fees) it was an unbelievable bargain.
Was unable to utilise the off course facilities but friendly proshop.
what a challenge.....
the first couple of holes get you into the swing, then the 4th hits you.
couple the tight fairways and tricky greens, and you get Beamish.
the only problem we had was the poor standard of Tee boxes, but then we played in October, I would recommend this to anybody, we had handicaps from 6 to 28 and everyone enjoyed it, both the golf and the club house.
A course i will visit again, hopefully in the summer
A very picturesque, but hilly course in wonderful settings. Great views, particularly of Beamish Hall.
Not very long but very challenging. The 4th is as difficult a par 4 as an average golfer will ever play and the 15th is a spectacular par 4 with an elevated tee hitting into a valley surrounded by trees.
You will not visit a more friendly club. Great value for money
As a member of this Club I can thoroughly recommend it to any potential visitors. The course is a bit hilly but the setting is superb. You must get the ball on the fairway though to score well. Best hole 15th
