Beamish Park is a beautiful and somewhat challenging course. I have been a member here for only a few months but believe that I should be able to give you an idea of what the course is like. The course is structured with the first 6 holes 'zig-zaging' form the club house. The first begins accross the 18th fairway and descends to the 1st fairway which bears left. The 2nd turns back toward the clubhouse. A challenging par 4 with a few gentle slopes and the green atop a slope 50ft or so above the fairway. the 3rd returns to the clubhouse and is a simple to play par 3 with the green next to the entrance. Hole 4 is the hardest of all with a Stroke Index of 1. I feel it is not only challenging to the golfer but to anyone stupid enough to climb its mountainous valley infront of the green. after about 200 yards the fairway steeply descends about 100ft into a small valley and with a terribly hard pith upto the green out of view at the bottom of this valley; if your ball lands down here, kiss that birdie goodbye! The 5th is a nice hole with only anoe ridge presenting a straightforward approch to the green. Hole 6 has small bumps with gentle climbs and descents. Remember to tee left because th right hand side plays host to one of the practice grounds. The 7th continues in the direction of the 6th then the fun begins. The 8th (a 314 yard par 4 from the yellows) runs left perpendicular to the 7th followed by a right sloping par 4 9th running along the bottom of the course boundary. the 10th then runs back alongside the 9th followed by a forgiving par 3 running alongside the 8th. the 12th provides the courageous golfer a left turning dog leg with two reasonably large ponds on the inside of the dog leg (each about 100-150 feet in diameter). from the 12th you are rewarded with water foutain. The very showy 13th is a short par 3 (151 from the yellows) with the tee area infront of Beamish museum's 'Home Farm, a fully lateral ditch with a stone bridge to a relaxing approch shot to the green with bunkers either side. the 14th then runs across the foot of the 12th's dog leg and heads toward a green which apparently has all areas sloping towards the clubhouse. The 15th is a 1-2 minute walk away as the 14th green is next to the 8th tee and the 15th tee is next to the 7th green. initially a very frightening 359 par 4 from the yellows, the 15th requires a tee shot from a tee box elevated approximately 200ft from the fairway about 120yds infront and hit between two very tall 'forests' of trees approximately 250-300ft tall and about 50 yards apart. The par 3 16th tees off alongside the middle of the 15th fairway with its green located just behind the 15th green. a very easy birdie here. The 17th is quite a long par 5 running the home stretch, nothing exciting here but a long and relatively flat fairway. the 18th runs uphill towards the clubhouse and crosses the 1st hole's tee path, in this case by instruction of the commitee it is the responsibility of those teeing off on the 1st tee to ensure that the 18th tee and fairway is clear before teeing off. The 18th green is not visible from the 18th tee and it is likely that if you teed off just after players infront just when out of sight you will be ready to play your approach shot to the green when those infront are still on the green. For this reason on the 18th and consequently for the 7th there is a bell that must be rang upon completion and clearing of that hole. You will be pleased to know that green fees at the 19th hole are very reasonable. Obviously I am unable to give you any prices but trust me they are very reasonable. Drinks are very crisp and the food is good and of a wide choice. A full size snooker table is in the bar at a cost of 50p per 30 minutes. Dress code is collars and sleeves, no trainers, no jeans, no football shirts, only tailered shorts (no bermuda or cycle shorts) and no shoes used on the course to be worn in the clubhouse. It is a very prestigious and pleasent club and in the clubhouse one would not associate its quality with that of a golf club unless you were at a golf club in Beverly Hills. if I sound as if I am boasting about my home club I do apoplogise, if I sound as if i am putting it down in anyway ( which I believe I am not)...I am not. it would be great for all of you to see the course and so i will try and provide you with som photographs of the course especially the 1st tee, the 4th green approach, the 12th's ponds, the 13th's scenery, the 15th's tee shot and the 18th's return to the clubhouse. Enjoy Beamish Park Golf Course, see you on the putting green.
