The Beeches course features plenty of water with six large ponds on the property. Adding teeth to the test, Matthews has also made good use of sandy waste areas throughout the course.
The Beeches Golf Club, and its five sets of tees, ranges in length from forward tees of 5,005 yards to 7,115 from the back tees. Because of the close proximity to Lake Michigan, there was no need to load the design with a lot of obstacles. The changing winds provide the variety in playability.
Matthews’ thoughtful design allows the club to operate with an affordable rate structure for its visitors. Building a course the community can always afford to play was important. The days of nice courses only being available at a private club are over. In 2007, Beeches Golf Club celebrated the first full year of operation and the initial responses from area golfers has been great and very complimentary.
Matthews says that Beeches has the acreage available to build a third set of nine holes in the years ahead.
