What we say...

3.5 out of 5

 The course was designed by the Welsh Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, who has been responsible for several renowned courses, including the Brabazon at the Belfry. It is a good test for golfers of all levels and is always in excellent condition.
 It plays well all the year round, even in winter, as temporary greens are never used.From the White Tees the course is over 7,100 yards (6,490 metres) long, and presents a stiff challenge for low handicap golfers. At some 500 yards (457 metres) shorter, the course off the Yellow Tees is a fair test for higher handicap players, making it eminently suitable for society and corporate events.
The course consists of two halves that are very different in character; the front nine is undulating on higher ground and has stunning views over the surrounding countryside, while the back nine is classic parkland, with an abundance of beautiful trees and water hazards.

Good but slow play spoilt the day

By bwporter

After booking on line we were warmly greated at the Pro Shop. Unfortunately they failed to mention that a 4 x 4 ball Ladies Club Match had started an hour previously and it turned into a 5 hour round. We gave up after the 15th - an hour to play two holes is TOO long. The course, although difficult was in very good condition and some interesting holes, especially the par 3 9th. A... read more

Take a cart!

By Guttenbiel

A great course but way too long to walk at a relaxed pace. Despite other comments this is No2 in the area behind Newbury and Crookham. Facilities wise, Donnington Grove wins, but for a great course head up the hill.

The best course in Berkshire bar none

By voaser

A fantastic course - long, difficult, with gradient and character. The course is in fantastic condition year round. The facilities have improved massively with the recent renovation. Simply better than anything else in the surrounding area.

Not so good as I remember!

By andter

Played a lot previously but disappointed this time. Not in such great condition, pins could have been moved away from bad areas. Not enough buggies available any more, slow round, too packed! New clubhouse good but how do you find it? I guessed as played before but signs none existant.

Great course Great views

By Paul George

This is a hidden gem and a must play for anyone around the area. 2 very different sets of 9 holes make a good round enjoyable.
