The West Berkshire Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1975

West Berkshire Golf Club is home to a relatively young and very pleasant parkland course, which offers fine views over the surrounding Berkshire Downs. One or two of the par-5s have been described as lacklustre, unspectacular and overly long, but the tree-planting of 20 years ago is really beginning to add to the maturity and character of the course.

Most of the time you can take aim at generous width and flattish fairways from the tee. There are many interesting holes, and several of the par-5s are long: the 1st measures 574 yds, the 5th 627 yds, the 9th 556 yds, the 13th 491 yds and the 16th 595 yds. It's no wonder the course stretches to over 7000 yards from the back tees. Although not yet recognised as one of the south of England's hidden gems, this is still a course that lays down a good test and is well worth a visit.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
