One of Dublin’s prettiest courses, Beech Park lies to the south of the N7. Such is the density of deciduous trees that this is more woodland than parkland. Even so, the opening nine feels open, with trees shadowing you every step of the way. On the back nine the trees close is. Combined with the water features it makes Beech Park a charming round of golf.
It is short for a par 72 but the trees add scale and give holes individuality. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the club’s version of Amen Corner, where the par five 13th doglegs around a natural lake.
