Bearwood Lakes Golf Club


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   Bearwood Lakes Golf Club Est. 1996

Where2Golf says: 

Bearwood Lakes Golf Club: In the great Surrey / Berkshire tradition, Bearwood Lakes is yet another in the stunning array of golf courses that occupies part of the extensive heathland to the south-west of London. With a backdrop of mature oak, lime and beech and surrounded by Scots pine, it's undulating terrain rolls along the banks of Bearwood Lake, with picturesque views of the whole Bearwood Estate. This classy, well-presented layout has been created to challenge players of all abilities, from beginners to professionals. Three natural lakes totalling 50 acres, come into play on six of the holes, much of this water appearing on the back-nine loop. If not water-lined, then many fairways are played through avenues of trees, while others occupy more open terrain, where heather and long grassy rough are definitely worth avoiding - if you can. With much stylish bunkering around the course, and excellent quality, large and sloping greens to contend with, there is plenty to factor-in to your course management, if you are hoping to shoot net par or better.

Did you know?

Between 1890 and 1910, as the game of golf rapidly developed throughout Britain and Ireland, land was eagerly sought for the creation of many new golf courses. The fast-draining, gently undulating, open heathland, found in Surrey and Berkshire, was felt to be ideal terrain for the creation of golf courses to serve the nation's capital. The likes of Sunningdale, Woking, West Hill, Worplesdon, Swinley Forest, New Zealand, St George's Hill and Walton Heath, were all established in these early days. Bearwood Lakes is a more recent arrival, but it carries the hallmarks of the finest courses established on the "heaths" to the south-west of London. Like its many relatives, the gently undulating terrain is home to a profusion of heather, rhododendrons, birch and pine trees and fast-draining soil.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
