Bearwood Lakes Golf Club recently had the ultimate privilege of welcoming golfing legend Gary Player, the Black Knight. During his game over 18 holes with good friends, our proprietor Gary Holloway joined them in a buggy.
Gary Player talked passionately about the track, his only criticism of the course was the bunker short of the 15th green as he feels 50-60 yard bunker shots are unfair for golfers. His words “bar that bunker he would rate our course 10 out of 10”. High praise indeed.
We are absolutely honoured to have met Gary Player and very proud that he enjoyed playing our ‘magnificent golf course’ his words on the 18th hole “this is one of the finest courses I have played in many years”. Being a man of nature he relished playing through the natural topography amongst deer, woodpeckers, swans, red kites, mature woodland, beautiful lakes, no cars, houses, or roads just a serene environment with a pristine track.
