Beaconsfield Golf Club

Region: South of England

Golfshake Rating: 4.84

Review Comment: "Nice dewy morning at Beaconsfield. Invited by a member and there are no tee times on a weekend morning with people allowed to go off when clear. Course in very good condition and greens are fast. A medium length course at just over 6000 yards but is a challenge due to the tree lined fairways. An enjoyable round, would recommend to play it if you get the opportunity."
