This is a great place to play a laid back round of golf. Beautiful scenery and excellent friendly staff, at a good price. They also have a restaurant which I did not try but looked good and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this course for a fun day of golf.

I played 18 holes here in the morning. It was a good challenge. The fairways are pretty narrow on some of the holes so it made it interesting even with some of the shorter distances.

I had a breakfast sandwich at the turn that was good and the staff was very welcoming.

I would recommend Beacon Rock.

The People: Very rude staff and locals who go out of their way to make you feel unwelcome.

The Course: Poorly maintained, downed trees covering the course, and the worst putting greens I've ever seen - chewed up w/ longer grass than fairways.

The low price brought me there, but after playing, even $9 was too much for what you get at Beacon Rock. Needless to say, we won't be back!

Thank you for returning to play our course again on April 21st. We were glad to have you back so soon. Please accept my apology for any of our staff if they made you feel unwelcome. Our policy is quite the opposite. We thank all of our players for coming out to our course. Yes, conditions were less than we expect our crew to deliver but given the unique challenges of this record breaking winter we are doing our best. Snow covered the course for 8 weeks all the way into Spring. During that period there was an Ice Storm covering all branches and limbs with 1 ½” of ice. That put 40% of all trees on the ground. It’s been a huge task to clean up and repair. The course is back in shape and greens have fully recovered. Sincerely, Mark Mayfield

We played in early October. Course was dry with no soft areas. We almost had the course to ourselves. The greens don't have true green grass that most courses have. It looks like fescue or rye grass. It was mowed short and made for good putting.

We stopped at the turn and had lunch. Great food and the prices we very reasonable. Staff was great and friendly. My wife is a beginning golfer so this is a good course for her. Can't wait to go back.

Played Beacon Rock for the first time. A nice course for a relaxed round. It was great for my son who is just learning to play. We were able to play at a relaxed pace. Stay on the beaten path though as we almost drove right over the top of a HUGE wasp nest looking for a golf ball in the rough on #4

This course is an awesome value. It's a 9 hole layout but they have a couple holes laid out completely different if you go around twice. The greens could use a little help and are a bit slow. They are a lot better than they were in 2015 though. I will for certain be returning as the value like I said is awesome. If I want the rock hard speedy greens, I've got to pretty much triple the money.

I have played Beacon Rock many times and like going here because it is close to my home and is usually not crowded. Even though it is a relatively short course, I find the overall layout and some of the holes very interesting. Some of them can be challenging due to narrow fairways and/or overhanging trees near the tee box. New management made some improvements last year, but so far this year the course is not in good shape. Several of the greens have bare spots and are in the process of being repaired. Even when they are in good shape, the greens are extremely slow here. I am not sure if this is due to the type of grass seed or the type of mower they use to maintain them. The cart paths are also in pretty rough shape and could use improvement. I am hoping some more improvements this summer because this course has potential and is in a beautiful location.
