Beech Park are excited to be launching a new members website on 29th April. The new website will be user friendly and allow us as a club to have more control over the information on the website as well as the look and feel of the site. It’s designed by members FOR members.
For those of you who wish to see a preview of the new website, and perhaps test it with the devices you use to book your golf, we will be holding an open “drop in” session on Wednesday evening, 18thApril, (prior to the EGM) to demonstrate the new website, take your feedback and suggestions and test it against the devices you use to make sure you don’t run into problems when we go live on 29th
