This is a stunning heathland course. Heather and gorse-lined fairways, framed by acres of firs and spruces.
It’s certainly not a long course, measuring 6,458 yards from the tips, but it’s narrow. You need accuracy from the tee. The greens are quite large, especially the 18th, and they are full of wicked borrows, so expect a few three putts. Beau Desert is no pushover; on numerous occasions it has hosted Open Championship qualifying rounds and more recently (2012), England Golf’s County Championships which was won by the Wiltshire Golf Union. Invariably, the course is maintained in excellent condition.
GBT Comment “This is one of our favourites, par 70 private woodland course has rolling fairways and testing greens”
