Beachwood Country Club

Mostly Clear
-°C Today, Forecast: -
A stone's throw from Durban Country Club, the Beachwood Course is a hidden gem offering a superb challenge for the golfer that enjoys a typical Links layout. It is currently rated 33 in the Golf Digest Top 100 Courses in South Africa.

The course was taken over by Durban Country Club in the early 1990’s and underwent some refining and alterations to bring the course closer to Championship standard - offering the discerning golfer an alternative challenge at Beachwood.

An interesting aspect of the course is that it lies at the southern end of Virginia Airport - mainly for small commercial aircraft, private flights, training flights and helicopters - adding an element of excitement to see these small aircraft take off and land directly overhead.

Barring the par 3 second, all the fairways run parallel to one another in a N-NE / S-SW direction. The sixth and ninth fairways both have a dog-leg left to consider whereas the other fairways are all straight. There are 41 bunkers around the greens, and 33 fairway bunkers waiting for wayward shots. Four of the holes are blessed with water features and most fairways are lined with trees.

This course is a very good challenge to the handicap, for the fairways are narrow and long, and require precision tee shots and lay-ups. The course is maintained with the same diligence and care as that of the Country Club course.

Signature Hole – Hole 6, par 4

The sixth is one of the most demanding par 4's you will find anywhere. At 410m from the back tee, set high in the dunes, the hole doglegs left, with a stream, bush and water hazard to be negotiated en route to the green.

Still a lot of flood damage from the floods that occurred last year April. The Gold Cart also had major issues.

I have been a member for 50years. I love the place , over the years i have many happy memories of the people i have met and played with. If when I pass on and are lucky enough to go through the pearly gates and the other side is like Beachwood .Enough said.

The clubhouse is old and run down and the change room is old, dirty and neglected. The course is badly maintained with the greens very slow and in bad condition, the rough unplayable and some fairways inundated. One par5 was converted to a par3 :(! The cart path was basically just a dirt road with full of potholes. Compared to other courses we played in KZN, this was by far the worst. And more disappointing, not the cheapest!

Given the uncertainty over its future the whole club needs a lot of remedial attention,however despite this the course remains in excellent condition and the staff are friendly and helpful.I would strongly recommend visitors support this beautiful golf club.

No difference between fairways and rough. Greens were shocking. I understand the greens have had issues, but placing pins in the affected areas are very not helping the progress
