Ed Black, April 2022

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time at East Berkshire. From the moment I got out of the car I was greeted with a really friendly hello and chat with some members. Makes all the difference. The man in the pro shop was no different. Really nice chap. As for the course itself - tight, mature, short and peaceful. Everything I want from a parkland course. No hole the same and above all, fun! Ok sure its not Sunningdale or Swinley Forest but the quality and condition of the course and greens was 5 star. For a third of the price, it's a must visit. Special place.

Having moved to the area 2 years ago I'd been impatient to play this fine gem of a course, and luckily got invited.

The Clubhouse and Shop is very warm and welcoming; always helpful when playing a new track. The first couple of holes ease you into the round, with some relatively short but challenging par 4's. Then the course starts to bite a bit and you realise your day is about to get challenging.

The par 4 7th was a real highlight for me, with OOB all up the left, heather, bunkers, and a covert stream down the RHS, you needed to throw some long darts. All leading uphill to an exquisite green protected by 3 large bunkers. A complete joy.

I won't bore you with a hole-by-hole summary, but the key to this course is consistent quality but with each hole carving it's own journey through the Berkshire woodland. No shot, no hole felt the same, and I came away with a huge smile.

I've played some of the nearby neighbours (The Berkshire), and one of the most charming assets of East Berks is that it doesn't pretend to imitate it's illustrious neighbours, but takes the same assets they have and makes East Berks unique in its own way.

One word of advice - don't hit down the left on the 18th :(

Absolutely brilliant track. I love it so much I've joined the membership waiting list.

Played here recently in a 'Senior's Open' Event and thoroughly enjoyed the day. This is an attractive, tree-lined and peaceful course.  The greens were in superb condition, quick, with excellent roll and true. As has been said already, not the longest course with only one par 5. Several of the par 4's have dog-legs and there are ditches, bunkers and patches of heather to make life difficult if you stray from the fairways. Strongly recommend a visit if you're in the area.

I selected East Berkshire to play my 650th golf course in a two ball with my wife on my birthday and was thrilled by this charming and delightful place. Sure, enough it was difficult to get a visitor Tee Time in the year of Covid, clearly the sign of a thriving Members’ Club, that my excitement to eventually get to play here knew no bounds.

The pretty parkland layout begins with two short and reassuring par 4s to get the juices flowing, before the real challenges start. The 3rd hole, a long bunker-less par 4 is a gem, and it just gets better. There is only one par 5, but there is magnificent variety in the par 4s so this is not a problem, and all four par 3s (of which only one is over 160 yards) are special.

And just as you start to feel you are getting on top of the course, the final holes bite back. The demanding 14th where you aim for the left of the fairway from the tee so as to have room around the trees to go for the green is wonderful, as is the straight uphill 15th back to the clubhouse. And the last two holes are long and tough, if not quite as visually appealing.

The course layout and condition are excellent and the overall site is quite cramped even if you never get the feeling of being hemmed in. A bigger nuisance was the number of walkers around the course, for the gorgeous autumn colours on the trees lining most fairways made in easy to comprehend why the location appeals to people other than golfers

Having played a lot of the top courses in Surrey/Berkshire over the past 12 years, booking East Berkshire based on the rankings meant I was not expecting anything exceptional in any way. It gets said a lot on this website but this course is definitely in the “Must be ranked higher” bracket. The course has got great variety, the greens were immaculate and the whole Club and course had a good feel to it. When we visit Surrey/Berkshire we pick 3 courses and play morning and afternoon at each course which means we get a proper look at the venue as a whole. East Berkshire may not be at the level of Swinley Forest, St Georges Hill or Sunningdale but at. A third of the green fee it is a course that is totally underrated and well worth a visit… you won’t be disappointed.

East Berkshire is a lovely track. It’s short but is only par 69. Don’t be fooled by the yardage as only one par 5 is there to be taken advantage of. There is a great mix of par 4s and par 3s, all varying lengths.

Can’t recommend enough for a pleasant walk round a very nice golf course.

Berkshire Ladies County Championships 2018

I can’t thank you enough for putting in place all the help we received over the week-end from the East Berkshire golf club.

As I arrived at 7.30am on Saturday, I could see the greenkeepers out raking the bunkers and ironing the greens.  As I walked into the clubhouse I met Bradley and Barry.  Barry looked after us the whole week-end and was very flexible when we asked if the afternoon tee times could be brought forward, due to the morning rounds finishing earlier than expected.  Club Captain Mike was also there both days and ensured everything we needed was provided.  Linda Skilton was a gem, supporting and running around over the two days.

Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved in the Championship firstly, in going ahead, and secondly in ensuring the whole week-end ran smoothly.

Once again, many thanks for your help in setting up both the Tegner and the Championship week-end.

Kind regards
