Burnham Beeches is located in the Thames Valley to the south of the county of Buckinghamshire, some 25 miles to the west of London. The area, extending to 540 acres, is now a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and also a National Nature Reserve. Acquired by the City of London in 1880 as open space for Victorian Londoners to enjoy, Burnham Beeches has remained a veritable oasis ever since.
Burnham Beeches starts gently with a short par four that takes you away from the delightful old clubhouse with its cupola clock tower. But then the going gets tough at the 2nd with out of bounds all the down the right on this 424-yard hole which is one of six substantial par fours at Burnham Beeches. The par three 3rd is the easiest hole on the scorecard, but such an apparently easy one-shot hole often results in a four on the card. The elevated tee shot on the 521-yard par five 4th is one of the most inviting in the county and it’s where even the most reserved golfer will be seriously tempted to grip it and rip it. All the par threes are strong, and all 18 holes are very different from each other, with strategic bunkering making you think about every shot! The 18th hole provides one of the toughest finishing holes in the region at over 435 normally played into the prevailing wind, a par or nett par really helps the scorecard.
Burnham Beeches is a well-wooded traditional parkland course providing one of the best tests of golf within easy reach of Central London. It offers bar and catering facilities for everyone if you’re on a Society, Corporate Day or just a friendly fourball with friends. It has a well-stocked professional shop with buggies, electric and pull trollies plus clubs hire. All in all, you won’t be disappointed when you reminisce about your round with a cold pint or a glass of the fine wines stocked by the club. The club also holds a series of Opens during the season from seniors to ladies, mixed and th eprestigous BBGC Scratch Open 36 hoels medal, for more details visit the website (www.bbgc.co.uk/opens) for these events.
You’ll really enjoy the WOW factor of BBGC and we look forward to hosting you.
