Beacon Park Golf Club

When Donald Steel and Sir Michael Bonallack played the very first round of golf at Beacon Park Golf and Country Club in the summer of 1982 a little piece of history was added to the annals of ‘Historic Upholland’. Since designing this wonderful course, set in the Lacashire countryside, Donald Steel has gone on to establish a reputation as one of the foremost links and traditional style golf course architects in the world. His emphasis on top quality, based on technical and academic knowledge, and attention to detail, combined with his philosophy of minimising earth movement and the blending of a course layout into its natural surroundings are Steel’s hallmarks and this Lancashire course really is a ‘Beacon’ to his style of work. Every hole has been thoughtfully sculpted to take maximum advantage of the natural terrain. Beacon Park holds a myriad of secrets, the answers to which can only be discovered by familiarisation with the course. This 6,000 plus yards of golf course will tease and tantalise you, and provide a taste of the way golf should be played. The combination of a stunning landscape and breathtaking views mixed with the accepted genius of Donald Steel’s design and maintained by the green staff, led by Billy Merritt, who tend the course so sympathetically, has created a special golfing venue here in West Lancashire. If you have a passion for the game of golf you should indulge that passion with a visit, or a revisit, if it is a while since you last played the course, to Beacon Park – you will find many surprises in store.
