Looking good after the winter. Nice course with limited facilities but would be a real shame to see it close. More interesting than the Richmond courses.

Pleasantly surprised. Heard a lot about potential closure and lack of interest but it was in good nick. With some tlc it has potential, for ?21 for a round you can't really complain. Great beginner course, big fairways and forgiving.

Been going to the park since 1956 when steam trains
Ran through the park. The course used to be very popular, get a number Sunday morning go back later to play. Needs some attention these days.
Henry Cotton used to be the club pro.
Shame the Homestead burnt down. So many memories, hearing the clock chime out at night.
So shame on you Lewisham Council for closing
This unique golf course.

Believe course is being sold end of 2016, and feels like the council have let it go to ruin. In poor condition and can play much better courses for the same price. Shane as there are some good holes, but poor condition of courses soils this

Beckenham Place Park Golf course is quite short but situated in very pleasant parkland. It is controlled by Lewisham council who have let the condition of the course deteriorate over the last few years to such a state that very few golfers now use it. This has encouraged Lewisham Council to follow their plan to close the golf course at the end of this year. I will be sad to lose this fine and picturesque venue that I have been playing since 1970.

Nice course although needs to be maintained more frequently and thoroughly. The rough in some parts is far to overgrown.

Nick, Beckenham rated 4 out of 5 - May 12 2016

Sad to hear this is closing. I grew up learning to play golf here over 25 years ago. There used to be a queue running to the house off the first tee. You literally had 50 people watching you fluff it onto the second green at times. Not sure if less people playing golf now is the main reason. Obviously the condition would have put some people off, but its perfect for a beginner or someone local who doesn't want to go miles for a public course. Yes the condition isn't great and its a rip off to pay full price, but would be sad to see it go. Its got character a lot of course lack, with the park and house backdrop.

(Round played: Apr 2016 - Score: 90 Handicap: )
The course was very wet, which obviously cannot be helped but that is no reason for the state of the bunkers, there was more grass and debris than there was sand, I also understand its a public park so you are always going to get people walking, there were a lot of dogs running around, which I don't have a problem with as I am a dog owner myself, however this should reflect in the cost of the round, £28 is far too expensive, it should be more around the £15 mark, I would play this course again at £15 but definitely not at £28.

£28 is expensive for a park course which isn't very well maintained

Nice course but all the golf ball washers were empty, and a 5 ball ( all members) group in front made this a very slow round.
