Overview

Beaverbrook Golf Club is a notoriously shy golf club... so much so the website doesn't even mention golf as an activity available for guests.

Golf Course Review

Beaverbrook Golf Club is part of a luxury hotel estate located in the Surrey hills not far from Walton Heath. The golf course is the preserve of the exclusive membership and not associated directly with the hotel.
