I wasn’t going to play this course until the date I did due to the large amount of rainfall and the fact the course was not in good shape. It still isn’t in great shape either; lots of damage to the greens, and several dead trees that need to be taken down. The cart paths are in extremely bad shape as well. Not sure if I’ll play here again; very disappointed with the new management here.

Terrible drainage, so lots of wet spots. Almost all of the bunkers are unplayable with pools of water or rock hard sand. Greens and fairways were good, some tee blocks were a little rough. Overall not a bad spot and layout of the course but apparently they have a recently new superintendent for turf and it clearly needs some updating and better up-keeping. Not worth $55+

Course conditions were horrible. Poor drainage all over the coirse and a lot of damage from carts. Areas "under construction" appeared to be left abandoned and weren't being worked on. Not worth the money they charge for a round.

I had golfed beechwood twice this week; a 9 on Friday and 18 on Sunday and had a tremendous time doing so. The layout of the course is spectacular with a good variety of difficulty and different challenges to face hole to hole. For the weather the area has seen lately the course is in good condition; fairways and greens are in very well up-kept but with some areas of long rough. I have played here before and as always the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Definitely would recommend playing here, and would do so myself again!

The course was dealing with extreme wetness from all the rain we've received this spring. It's pretty much the same as every other course in the area and what they are going through this spring. The course had to adjust the first tee due to puddles in the first part of the fairway. The staff were excellent and very friendly. I think we walked more than usual because we had to keep the carts strictly on the cart path. It was a beautiful day for golf though.

I was very pleased with the experience at the course today. I found the staff very friendly in the pro-shop and restaurant area. The course was well maintained and the greens were in good shape. I noticed that the carts were new which was nice.

This is not a complaint, just an observation. I have played the course a number of times on a Hot Deal and typically they let me on before my tee off time when not busy (minimal practice facilities). Today I was an hour early, the course was not busy however the guy in the shop said I was not to start until my tee off time because I had to share my cart. The starter was advised by walky talky just to make sure I didn't "cheat". At least two groups started before me with only one bag on a cart. I could have joined up but no, I was to wait my time. Technically they are right, PR-wise, bad move. Had I started with an earlier three-some I most likely would not have been affected by the rain, and not written this review. Note: services is already minimal at this course - get your own cart, carry your bag, no score sheet in the cart. Glade I did'n't pay full price!
