Bekhuis began his career with Southland in 2006 after a successful time with the Southland Boys' High School First XV. After making two starts in his debut season, he emerged as a regular starter during the 2007 Air New Zealand Cup.
He followed up his debut Super Rugby season with an exceptional 2009 Air New Zealand Cup, during which he made 14 starts and scored 4 tries, and was a key figure in Southland's Ranfurly Shield triumph over Canterbury.
Bekhuis' reliable performances for Southland saw him earning a Super Rugby contract with the Highlanders for the 2009 season. He had a fine first campaign, appearing in every game and making 8 starts. He would further build on that during the 2010 Super 14 season, starting every match for the Highlanders.
During the 2011 Super Rugby season, Bekhuis appeared in every match for the Highlanders for the third season in a row, bringing his consecutive games streak to 42.
Bekhuis signed with the Blues for the 2015/16 Super rugby seasons.
