In their Words…….
The Club dates back to 1896, when the original 9 holes were formed. There have been changes since then, the most predominate being the opening of 9 new holes in our centenary year. With 18 holes, par 69, now in play, including the 560 yard par 5 12th hole, the challenge is there for all categories of player.
Beith is a hilly parkland course with spectacular views over the surrounding areas, from Ailsa Craig & Arran to Ben Lomond. 7 counties can be seen from the elevated 6th tee, and nature is in abundance, with deer and buzzards among the wildlife on show.
In Autumn 2017, it was decided that we could not afford to keep going the way we were, as there was not enough income to keep the club running for the forthcoming year. The club did not have any debt so it was an easy enough decision to close down, because redundancies etc could be paid with what assets and cash were available to avoid having the members being pursued for any liabilities.However, it was put forward that 9 holes may be a way to save the club as long as enough members committed to pay for one more season at least.
As of January 2018, a faithful band of members did promise to carry on for the upcoming year and hopefully all the trials and tribulations of the coming year will give us an indication whether it is a feasible long term project.
Two years down the line, reverting to 9 holes has proven to be a good decision as the Club continues to flourish. Thanks to a stable membership the Club is striding forward, and in a healthy financial state with funds being invested in upgrading machinery and the Club House. For those wishing to play 18 holes, there are two tees for every hole giving a bit of variety on each tee shot.
Please take the opportunity to come and play the course and enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere of our Club. The Clubhouse offers a friendly and relaxing welcome to visitors and members alike. A well stocked bar of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available for pre and/or post game enjoyment along with a pool table and fantastic views out over the course, to the town of Beith and beyond to the hills of Arran in the distance. The “Golfer’s Grill” complements the clubhouse facilities by providing sustenance of light breakfast and snacksBeith Golf Club
