Beacon Park’s play area and public toilets are open. However, the Ranger Station is now closed and pay for play activities, such as golf and tennis, are unavailable. The skatepark has also been closed temporarily. If visiting, please follow social distancing guidance and put litter in a bin or take it home with you.
Golf at Beacon Park
Beacon Park offers a fantastic mature 18-hole pitch and putt, par 3 golf course, with holes ranging from 90 yards to 110 yards. In 2017 we launched foot golf and disc golf – offering new and fun ways to play the game.
You can now book your game of golf as well as foot and disc golf online through Bookizmo!
The golf course is open every day (subject to conditions), except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. There is no need to book – just turn up, pay at the Ranger Station (which is the kiosk between Lakeside Bistro and the crazy golf course), and enjoy a game! Golf tee off times
In 2019 an 18-hole round of golf costs £8 for adults and £6 for children, and discounts are available with a LAP membership.
You can play with your own golf clubs, or hire them when you pay for your round. It costs £1.50 a club, which includes a ball and a deposit of £1.
We also have a golf course map to help guide you to round the course.
Golfers can play a 9-hole round at Beacon Park by following the yellow flags on the course.
Golf Express is available from Monday to Friday and is a great way for beginners to get into the game or for anyone who is short on time.
In 2019 it costs £5 for adults and £4 for children, with discounts available with a LAP membership. Check our golf tee off times
Foot and disc golf
You can play foot and disc golf in Beacon Park.
Foot golf sees players follow the route of the golf course, but rather than teeing off, you kick a football into larger golf holes in the ground. Disc golf allows players to throw flying discs into special raised nets and also follows the route of the golf course.
The goal of both games is to play each hole or net in the fewest kicks or throws as possible. The player with the lowest total for the entire course wins.
Care is taken to make sure traditional golf games are not interrupted by the new activities.
You can pay for your game and hire equipment from Beacon Park’s Ranger Station (which is next to the golf course).
In 2019 it costs £8 for adults and £6 for children for an 18-hole game of foot or disc golf. It costs £1 to hire the equipment and a £2 refundable deposit will also need to be paid.
An express 9-hole round costs £5 for adults and £4, and you can save money if you want to try both games in one day. There are discount prices for Leisure Activity Passport holders.
