Beaconsfield Golf Club

Region: South of England

Golf Shake Rating: 4.84

Review comment: “Beautiful dew covered morning in Beaconsfield. Invited by a member and there are no tee times on a weekend morning with people allowed to go when it’s clear. Course in very good condition and the greens are fast. A medium length course at just over 6000 yards but it is a challenge due to the tree lined fairways. A nice round, would recommend playing it if you have any the occasion.”
