Beachwood Course

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.

Beautiful fun course in reasonable shape considering their drought and fun to play.  Signage to direct you to the next tee should be required as it was difficult to see where to go.

The greens weren’t in the best condition. We know the hollowtining is necessary but it does cost shots

The facilities desperately need an upgrade as the clubhouse has aged significantly, the golf carts need a revamp and the pro shop is completely empty. The staff were not very friendly nor welcoming to the club. Other than that, the course is challenging but with very intelligent design features and with some funding could be a destination of choice.

Poor organization - late start, no cart on time. Condition of course. Very slow play - no marshal to speed up play. Ended up paying for 18 with cart and only played 9 - would not have finished before dark.
