What the club says: This well established (over 20 years) course is parkland with mature tress and numerous water hazards to trap the unwary. The fairways are generous, the green receptive and the semi rough is kept quite long to penalise a wayward shot. 84 bunkers are placed strategically to test your full repertoire of shots.

Gradual Improvements

Played the Castle Course. Greens are in a pretty poor state, as are the tee boxes. Considering the dry summer we have had though the fairways have held up very well and the rough is tidy. They are making a lot of improvements in and around the clubhouse but other than the greens/tees, I think the upkeep of the course furniture, tee steps, pathways and bunkers should be the priority. Could be a great track!!

The Club name and both courses have changed names. The Pars also need updating on website. Now called Cainhoe Wood Golf Club.

Pleasant surprise

Invited by one of the members and had a very enjoyable round. Some reviews were really poor but the club are obviously investing in the courses and I think by next summer it will be outstanding.
Some good challenging holes and the dog legs combat the ?boom it off the tee? brigade.
Looking forward to my next round.

Beadlow Manor > Cainhoe Wood

After the change of ownership and the relaunch as the new Cainhoe Wood, there have been great improvements to both courses and driving range.
It's on the road to becoming a great club and I've backed it by recently joining!!

Good course

Very busy and day not helped by the very strong wind. New owners have done well by cutting the grass in-between the trees which makes far more enjoyable to play. Keep it up

Cainhoe Wood Golf Club

Have played here a few times since the change of name. The courses and complex itself have improved and I think the future looks positive. The layout of both courses has always been good and the course formerly known as the Baron is a tough track and could be excellent, but I feel the major step in improving the courses would be an upgrade in the irrigation system which clearly still seems to be an issue at the club! Get that sorted and you have a foundation for a great 36 holes of golf!

Love it

Really nice layed out course. Each hole is seperate and loved playing it.. A few small areas on a couple of greens that need sorting, but sure with recent improvements I'm sure this will be sorted soon.

Tiger boy

Wow...what can you say about this place, where do you start! The moment you drive in and fall down the pot holes on the entrance drive you just know your in for a bad experience, then you go in the clubhouse and are greeted by a motley crew of staff and that’s being kind it’s a shambles. The shop was ok apart from the miserable looking guy working in there it just gets worse though....then you play the golf course and you wished you would have fallen in one of the potholes and never come out, worse course I have ever played and I have played all over the world and a lot of courses in this country greens were terrible, fairways awful, the whole course was tatty looking are there greenkeepers working here because I didn’t see any and if there are well I’m not sure they really care. Beadlow has got a bad reputation but I wanted to see for myself as I have a good friend that plays there so he invited me to play...never again and he said he won’t be renewing his membership and lots others feeling hard done by within the club.

Just avoid the place it’s a total waste of money! In fact it’s not that good...sorry folks!

Played the course with a member and was horrified how bad the greens are...he informed that the water system hasn’t worked properly for years and the owners will never want to invest any money into getting it to work properly, saw members of the greenstaff on there phones nobody looks like they care...the whole place looked run down and neglected I feel sorry for the members who would have parted with good money to join such a shambles!
