7:50 tee time. Young man in the pro shop was very nice. No one in front of us all day. Course layout is better now that they went to 18. But still has a few weak holes. Not challenging at all. Tee boxes weren’t terrible but far from good. Greens are about as bad as they come. Really too poor for a course to allow. Mud and mower tracks have no place where you putt. They should consider closing and rebuilding most of the greens from scratch

Somebody needs to know that the course was under repair. No notification, only 9 holes open. And, no discount for showing up and not notifying anybody. Wound up going to another course.Will never go back there again. Course is a dump and should be shut down. You shouldn't even offer it on your website.

Played in perfect weather this morning. More players out there than usual, but pace was good. The course itself is poorly maintained. The grass on the fairways was too long, if there was grass there at all. The rough is too high... played three rounds at other courses with the same ball prior to today... lost 6 balls on shots that just missed the fairway because of the awful rough. Tee boxes are overgrown and full of crab grass. Greens are inconsistent and just plain beat up. Since going from 27 to 18, the reconfiguration of the holes is confusing and the signage and pathways are poor. I hate writing this review because I've played here for over 20 years and holes themselves are a solid challenge without being difficult, but the course conditions render this course unplayable. You're better off hitting one of the many other courses in the area, even if it means spending a few more bucks. Come on, Beckett, figure it out, this course has great potential!!

After three days of record breaking rain, getting soaked by the unnecessary sprinklers on the first three spongy non-descript holes while losing balls in the rough-length middle of the fairway was no value at any price. Greens were in almost as bad shape as the rest of the course which was predominately extra long crabgrass. I am usually willing to overlook most shortcomings when I get a good deal but after guessing wrong about the next hole after 10 (no signage) and accidentally skipping 5 holes, I felt fortunate I ended up near the parking lot and never looked back. This is the first negative review I have ever left on Golf Now and I only leave it so that fellow Golf Now bargain hunters know where the cutoff lies between a good value and an unplayable, untended mess.

Went out to this course on a gorgeous Sunday. I booked it because it was the cheapest morning time we could find. I'd recommend 20 for a round at primetime but not the 35 we paid. The fairways are like roughs if there is any grass on them at all. Confusing course layout without much direction of which way to go, and a almost nonexistent cart path. Greens were ok at times, but many characterized with large bare mud spots. Overall couldn't really recommend it unless you really need to golf and there's a considerable savings over literally any other course

Don’t play this course, especially for the $29 highway robbery price. I think around $9 would’ve made the course a little more acceptable for what you got out there. There were no fairways at all - we saw a mower on one fairway that looked like or was broken down and hadn’t been used in weeks. Greens and tee boxes were worse. Save your money and time, please !!

I have been playing Beckett Golf Club for many years now, and although it has never been great, the conditioning of the course has gone down further and further each year. Maybe it has something to do with the course being for sale, but I think the owners have just given up. I would never recommend anybody spending their money to play this course. The rough is weeds, the fairways are crabgrass, the greens are just as bad, and the pro-shop has a hole in the ceiling. I'd love to give the course more love, because the layout of the course is pretty good.

Beckett could be great, but whomever is responsible for upkeep needs to rethink how much money the course is getting, because that is what the people are here for after all.

Not great but not horrible. Worst part of the day was that the rough was extremely high. On every hole, balls maybe 1 or 2 feet off of the fairway could be lost forever, and many were. That got old quick. Went at 7 am, had a slow group of 4 in front of me and a buddy. After the first whole we played through them and were smooth sailing from then on.

Hole design wasn't bad. Had some decent fun to it. Nothing overly difficult. Good beginner course. Scored my best round of the year so far. (96. My second year playing). You get what you pay for. $38 bucks in the middle of the summer is a good deal.

Just go have fun and bring lots of beer. Oh and bring deep woods off, you'll probably need is trudging through the rough.

i booked knowing it was going to be overcast with a chance of showers. the lady at the counter could not have been more pleasant. The course moved along at a nice pace, very little waiting between holes. The course was in very good shape considering all the rain we have been getting only trouble was the rough had a great deal of brown clippings on top making it hard to find a shot that just rolled off the fairway, otherwise was in nice shape. I would play again and recommend anyone to play and enjoy the course. Hope this helps.

Where to play on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend? Can't play anywhere in Pa. can't play in Delaware or Maryland, Can't go north in NJ nor east, I know we will go south but not too far south, we will go to Beckett. Man great choice I hardly seen another car on the road. As for the course it really looked good, really green from the parking lot. On closer inspection the grass was a little too high, lots of standing water also, ah the aroma now they did have mowers out there but I guess we just got too much rain lately. We spent a lot of time looking for our balls due to high grass and grass already cut laying on ground where the ball would roll under. Other then that Mrs Lincoln how'd you like the play? Greens were OK, Tee's were functional and the traps were yikes. I'll return to see if things get back to normal after a few weeks of sunshine. On my way home I listen to the traffic report and nothing was moving anywhere in the Delaware Valley except for me.
