I learned how to play the game on this course. It's my home course so this review may be a bit biased. But I've come to this conclusion because the course can be so tough but yet fair and I have met some of the best people on the course as well as off including my favorite instructor Terri Ryan. The course is not even 3000 yards but literally every hole has a safe shot and high risk shot off the tee. You will have hazards on both sides of the fairway on almost every hole. Too many people I believe have learned how to play on wide open courses that allow you to pull driver on every hole not learn how to work your ball around the course

I would tell anyone if you want to learn how to play golf first get lessons then harness your game at Beechwood. If you can play here you can play anywhere. .

First hole is very cool. If you don't hit a perfect 5 wood

or long iron you will be too close to the trees which canopy the fairway, gotta go under em unless your back about 165 and go over em.

Tight and challenging and the greens are good.

Value for the money, not too busy usually.

The "golf pro" reminds you she is the pro and kinda hawks the course, weird.

Definitely worth checking out for a hot deal. Nice layout and a fun, quick 9 holes. Downpoured yesterday, so no carts, but it was very nice walking and the course held up very well. Some pretty narrow fairways, and a couple tough approach shots, but most greens are huge and easy to hit. Strategic, short course

I chose this course for its 4 out of 5 rating which it doesn't even come close to deserving.

I was with two co-workers that needed to rent clubs. They understood that when you rent clubs from a municipal course you don't expect much, but they were given a bag full of terrible antiques that would make a mis-matched set from Goodwill look good.

The fairways were dry as a bone. In fact, the only parts of the course that weren't so dry that your ball would bounce off of like a cart path were the greens. Aside from the 1st hole, most of the greens were actually in decent shape.

Overall, the condition of the course was worse than I expected but not the worst I've ever played. That said, I would never pay $25 to play this course again. I don't even pay that much to play a beautiful manicured 9-hole course in Wisconsin.

Note: The price I paid was for non-resident with cart. The course is much cheaper for residents walking, but not many were walking when I was there. The pace of play was moderately slow, but we still finished in under 2 hours.

One last comment: The course is very short. I believe there was only one par 4 over 350 yards. Most were under 300.

What a nice course, don't let the short yardage fool you it is tight and tricky.

Great condition, location and had a great time.

I will definitely be back, in great shape and played in one hour as wide open til 8th hole. Practiced my putting for a few minutes then proceeded to finish.

Love this course and will now be a regular.

Decided to try this course on a whim because it was close to work. Compared to other courses I've experienced in the area, it has a few features that really make it stand out:

- A good number of holes are not on top of each other

- Holes that actually dogleg and have varying terrain

- Wooded areas of dense trees

The gentleman at the desk was very friendly and helpful answering my dumb questions ("Which cart did you mean?" "Where do I put it back when I'm done?" etc). He did check for verification from purchase from GolfNow, but I was able to just show him the e-mail on my phone and it was completely painless. I really can't say enough about how awesome his attitude was--I've had enough grief from people at other courses.

Holes were well kept. The only rough terrain I had to deal with was when I was way off from the fairway. Some spots of the course are under repair, but I didn't see anything more than two spots and each one was smaller than two square feet. There were a few holes with water hazards, but it wasn't oppressive at all.

I managed to really speed through the round up until the last three holes. Then I got caught up in a log jam of people,. But really, the wait wasn't terrible at all.

Overall, a great course to burn an hour or two to get 9 holes in. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a go-to course for me going forward.

Beechwood is well maintained course that offers a great challenge. It's short but very tight. Every tee shot requires a little thought about club selection and ball shape. If you can get through this course and consistently stay in the fairway you can play anywhere.

Course is tight, lots of trees and hanging branches. Slight wait times on the weekends at each tee box.

Worth it for time, price, and convenience.

One of the best smaller courses I've ever played before. Many of the holes are narrow and call for a very accurate shot. The course is maintained as if it were a private country club. Golf here and you will not be disappointed.

After paying just $9 for 9 holes with a cart, I thought it would be a cheap, rundown course. I was pleasantly surprised to play an extremely well-manicured course with a cool layout. The fairways are narrow and tree-lined so you are forced to hit it straight. Loved everything about the course! Might be my favorite course in the area for the hot deal!
