Founded in 1928, The Berkshire Golf Club is home to two Herbert Fowler designed courses, both of which are widely regarded as amongst the best in the British Isles. The Berkshire is a traditional Members’ Club which warmly welcomes visiting golfers all year round to enjoy the beauty of its pine and heather lined courses, and to face the subtle challenges of Fowler’s superb design.
The Berkshire is one of the best golf clubs in England and definitely worth a visit - or even two, to enable you to play both courses. I have only played there in charity golf days, but I know that it is possible to pay a green fee and play as a visitor, though it is far from cheap. Both courses are very attractive with interesting and challenging holes. In established woodland with a great deal of heather to contend with, the courses are not for beginners. The Red Course is unusual in including six par 3s, six par 4s and six par 5s. The Blue Course starts with a challenging par 3, with a long carry over heather, which is also unusual. You will be warmly welcomed by the friendly staff in both the Clubhouse and the Proshop, though be sure to check the dress code as this is a very traditional club. The food is excellent, especially the renowned carvery. The Clubhouse is large and impressive and includes a cafe where golf shoes are permitted for coffee and a bacon roll before your round. The ladies’ locker room is upstairs and a good size. The Proshop is a separate building across the car park from the Clubhouse and is a good source of logo souvenirs of your visit. The halfway hut serves hot and cold drinks and snacks for both courses and includes toilets.
