This course needs some maintenance. Tee boxes are uneven and need to be overseeded. Greens are more than adequate as are most of the sand traps. Plenty of woods so there were branches down that need to be picked up or at least put into piles outside of the rough area. Might be because of the time of year. My first time playing this course. Will play again but it could improve.

I used Golfnow.com to book my time. However, when I arrived, the time I was scheduled for was not what I was given online. I will say that guy in the pro shop went beyond what was needed to do to accomodate us (party of 3) and got us off when we were supposed to get off. The ones loading bags were unfortunately not so courteouse - they were simply doing a job. The round was unnecessarily slow, and I was completely discouraged by the end of the round - not by my score, but because it took so long.

Booked the "Hot Deal" the day before. Fairways not terribly over seeded with rye grass, but certainly playable, despite mostly dormant Bermuda grass. Golf course is a fair layout. Not much elevation change, as it's close to the beach, but the course really doesn't need it. Greens are in better than average shape for the winter months. Staff was very friendly. Getting caught on an unusually windy day meant a lot of knock-down shots.

We had a great day to play Beachwood. Perfect weather. The course was in pretty good shape considering it was January and all the hurricane damage they had in the fall. The only complain was they should have paired people up a little. We let a 2-some through and then there was 2 singles and another 2 behind us. It would be more efficient if they were paired up but I liked the course and pace of play was good.

Just played Beachwood 3 days ago. Considering what it went thru with hurricane Matthew, the management and staff have done a great job of bringing back the course. The greens are green and fast. The sand traps are well groomed and maintained. The fairways are green and well maintained. The rough is just a nice challenge. Even the tees are green without a lot of divots. Amazingly, the cart paths are in pretty good shape (easy on the back) except for one section of about 20" that needs some work and some new fill.

Excellent course for seniors or average golfers. Just needed the beer cart to come around one more time. Unfortunately, the girl stopped arounf 1:30.

Try it people , you will like it for the money!

I know it's a holiday weekend, but there were 8 carts waiting to tee off at our tee time. We waited 5 to 7 minutes at every tee box and every fairway. When we sat down at the turn to eat a hot dog because there were 6 carts waiting at the 10th tee, the clubhouse guy had the nerve to tell us that if we didn't take it with us, he was going to send others through. Meanwhile the 2 foursomes of men behind us had ordered and sat down too. Two foursomes in front of us left on hole 12. You'd think our play would have freed up, but it didn't and I quit shortly after.

Poorly managed course play today!

We have played here 2 dozen times over the years and never had such slow play or disrespectful attitudes.

The course was in decent shape for winter. No complaints about the course itself.
