Mature parkland course with water, wide fairways, good greens and lots of bunkers.
Beverly brook runs through the course and comes into play a number of times.

Starting with stroke index 17 par 4 with a straight wide fairway, followed by a stroke index 15 par 3 of 159 yards, makes for a gentle begining.

Hole 3 is a little trickier, there is a river across the fairway where a great drive will take its first bounce and a good one finish. The river is a bit further from you on the right and there is a large bunker just short of the water on the left, it depends on the wind but a fade is the safe shot. Past the water there are two more fairway bunkers left and three more around the green, a tough 435 yard par 4.

Illustrated above, the 7th is a beautiful looking hole, from a large raised teeing area the fairway narrows 150 yards out as large stands of trees pinch in from both sides. A well placed tee shot will leave a short iron/wedge across the brook to a green protected by willows conifers and bushes close by, a bunker front left and mounds right and back which makes the chip back on hard should you miss the green long or right..

The hardest hole on the course, hole eight, 463 yard par 4. This green is hard to reach in two, making it a virtual par 5 for most.

The 10th is the first of the three par 5's, there is an attractive stand of trees on the left, willows along the right and a massive bunker across the fairway to catch the faint hearted.

Eleven is a gentle dogleg right, there are two large bunkers on the left of the fairway one after the other, a well placed tee shot is needed here.

Across the river past the sentry of bushes to the 12th green.

The 13th looks very narrow from the tee, there are a pair of bunkers short right and a large bunker long centre, there two more guarding the front of the green. At 421 yards for a par 4 this is a tough one.

Hole 14 is the longest par 3 at 179 yards, as usual there are mounds around the green and a bunker front left making for a small target from the tee.

Fifteen is the longest hole at 491 yards, it's also the first of back-to-back par 5's as 16 is par 5, the green is well protected with bunkers left and right and a large pond close by the right.

The shortest par 4, hole 17 turns sharply left 200 yards out. There are trees all down the left and a bunker at the corner. It's tempting for the longer hitter to go for a big draw, but play into the corner and it's an easy par 4 possible birdie.

The 18th has a wide fairway with a large bunker left followed by trees jutting in from the left. Huge tower blocks in the distance are striking as you walk down the last fairway

The greens are a good size, well tended, quite fast and subtlely undulating. Your approach shot is often obscured by grass mounds and green-side bunkers, making it much harder to judge for distance and position.

They are quite particular about dress code here. There is a good practice putting green by the club house.

If anything it's a liitle bit flat, but there are some attractive and challenging holes, an abundence of large fairway bunkers and green side mounds, and with the brook running across many fairways as well as fast shapely greens, it makes for a good round of golf.
