What we say
Relatively short but classy gently rolling heathland recently upgraded by leading architect Howard Swann and with potential trouble in the form of banks of heather, clever dog-legs and fast undulating greens.
East Berks is located on the North Downs near the western end of that glorious belt of pine and heather country that was once the Forest of Windsor.
The golf course is rich in natural hazards with the heather, as always, making the best kind of rough - if there is such a thing for a golfer. It was laid out by Peter Paxton who took full advantage of the impressive lie of the land whilst water guards the greens at two of the short holes.
East Berks' famous guests include South Africans Bobby Locke and Gary Player who were frequent visitors to the club in the 60's and 70's. More recently, Luke Donald played many times in pursuit of 'The Stag', the club's premier amateur competition, won in its first year by Sandy Lyle.
