What the club says: Hidden among the towering canopy of Staffordshire's Cannock Forest, this Herbert Fowler classic stands proudly alongside his other English master-pieces - Saunton, Walton Heath and The Berkshire to name but a few. The beauty of Beau Desert is hard to describe as, with only the occasional passing Stag as a critic of your ability to master the rolling fairways and testing greens, you will enjoy both a sense of isolation and peacefulness here allowing you to focus on your game and enjoy your visit to the full.

Absolutely love this course

Immaculate and amazing views. It is so serene. Second time I have played and won't b the last.
I played with a 4 handicapper who loved it but thought it was too short off yellows.
Full price pf GBP 90 is quite alot when you consider pre Covid there was a county card rate of GBP 40 which is just a steal. But Beau Desert is a quality course and does not need to buy visitors, nor entertain societies. It is just top quality from start to finish!

A classic Parkland course set in some exceptionally beautiful surroundings where hitting the fairway offers a definite premium.

A heathland Gem

just brilliant. Not long on the card, but certainly no pushover. great condition, with slick greens which provide a stern examination of your putting (which i failed!)

OMG what a fabulous heathland course. Best in the Midlands?

Take North Hants, Notts Hollinwell and Sherwood Forest and put them together and you get this fabulous course at a fraction of the price......£45 with a county card. Not a weak hole anywhere, stunning views, beautiful bracken, heather, varied trees, areas of rough in middle of fairways, and elevated greens.....not to mention the sensational rolling countryside and occasional roaming deer. It is amazing. We all play a lot of courses around and cannot believe why no-one talk about this place . Apparently they do not do society days - keeping it a bit exclusive I guess. But just go play. I promise you it is a cracker. We can;t wait to go back!

First visit to this course for the AmAm after hearing such great reviews. The recommendations were spot on. Fantastic place to play golf. Some really great holes and not one that stands out as mediocre. Course held up really well even in biblical rain at times.
Can’t wait to come back.

How many stand out holes??

Enjoyed my day even tho, the games well my driver, woods is shocking off 6. my rating is based on how expensive to play the course as a none member and how memorable the holes are.


my best holes 4th easily messed up, the 9th risk or reward 10th great little par 3, 15th par 5 hit it straight :-) and 18th !!! course in oustanding condition considering 5 week drought 2018. nice club house and towels for that nice after touch shower.


200yrd range and short game area. word of warning take extra water no halfway house or fountain to be found.

A Gem

This is an amazing golf club. Very professional and friendly from the pro shop to the bar. I would highly recommend this course. Even after heavy rain it was in immaculate condition. It is a brute of a course anywhere off the fairway consider your ball lost

Tough track first time around and they don't accept Golfshake handica

Having had my Golfshake handicap refused I was told I could not compete in the competition with the rest of my 4 ball partners. Not the best start to the day and something I will take up with Golfshake directly. The course itself to my mind is quite tough on some holes getting to the greens where you almost play a second game as the holes themselves are the major defence, the group felt. I am 15 hc and my partners are better players than myself and they said some of the greens were unfair. That said the course was enjoyable to play and a good test of golf. If you have a trolley it is a longer walk given all of the restrictions of where to go. Prepare to be frustrated and rewarded in equal measure.
