Beech Woods Golf Course
The Beech Woods Golf Course will be closed for the 2019 golf season while a comprehensive study of the existing infrastructure and irrigation system is performed. The Beech Woods driving range, heated tees and pro shop will remain open.
Beech Woods Golf Course, located on the campus of the Beech Woods Recreation Center at 22202 Beech Road, has experienced significant flooding and irrigation issues in recent years. The current irrigation and water management system is nearly 40 years old and is no longer operational, frequently causing water to pool throughout much of the course following heavy and even moderate rainfalls – rendering much of the course unusable.
In the interim, golfers can still take advantage of the driving range located at the Beech Woods Golf Course as well as the nine-hole Evergreen Hills Golf Course, located at the Southfield Municipal Campus, 26000 Evergreen Road. Parks & Recreation will continue to host lessons, clinics, camps and golf specials for all ages throughout the 2019 golfing season.
