The West Berkshire Golf Club

3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   The West Berkshire Golf Club Est. 1975

Where2Golf says: 

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
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
