Beachwood Course

Mostly Clear
-°C Today, Forecast: -
Note: the course has re-opened for visitors, with social distancing and Covid-19 safety guidelines
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.

Taking into account the challenges that golf course had to face , I found the course very satisfactory, in fact in good shape, and the price of R150 was awesome for a "Dads Day", thanks to the team for having the course in such a wounderfull conduction

The course was in fair condition after the lockdown. The greens were extremely slow. The safety protocols and the pro shop and staff were very good

Was disappointed with the surprise additional charge of R50 per player which amounted to R200 for the 4 ball. We understand its towards caddies and would like to help but it should not be a surprise and should not be compulsory as we are all finding it tough. They said they would have a caddie posted at all 18 greens but this was not so.....but with covid19 how wise it is to have caddies at each green and in close contact with the players?
