Nice Course for a change of scenery

I enjoy West Berks, but wouldn't want to be a member there playing it all of the time. The walks between tee and green are a bit of a pain. There could do with being some more signage to aid this. Hot Day and no body manning halfway hut, which was not welcomed. There are some very nice holes on the course and the trees are beautiful but make it a straight hitters course. I had 81 so not moaning about that. Greens very receptive, but very bobbly to putt on.
course fairways pretty parched, but that will be the same on many golf courses.

Really Enjoyed My Visit

My first visit to the West Berkshire. Thoroughly enjoyed it. A lengthy and challenging but fair course that suited my game perfectly. Very friendly welcome and very friendly encounters with others playing the course. Look forward to playing here again even though it's more than an hour's drive to get there

Jubilee Golf!

Always enjoy playing at West Berks, weather was great, course was in fantastic condition and for a change...the Golf was fairly good. As it was a Bank Holiday and we were a two ball, the pace of play was a little slow around the 10th, 11th and 12th but it didn't spoil the round. Some of the Bunkers would benefit from having a little more sand, but overall we were happy with the layout.

Improving all the time

The course is improving all the time. Greens are significantly better, fairways also. Like so many courses the bunkers are not the best but overall well worth the money.

A good test

Played in lovely weather with a moderate northerly breeze. Arrived to a friendly pro who tried to get me out earlier but unfortunately no joy; ended up behind a club match of two balls but still took nearly 4 hours.

The course overall was in nice condition. Tee boxes aside, we’ll groomed but very penal even a few inches off the short stuff. Plays long off the white pots and a great test of your golf. Greens were true and fairly slow and too firm to take a ball. Links type approach was required on many holes.

Decent practice facilities, chipping, putting, nets and a iron practice area.

Be nice to play again.

Great value for money

Superb course, in really good condition. The layout is nice with most holes surrounded by fur trees, quite narrow and some challenge holes. The fairways and greens were in good condition. We paid £25 each but think it’s cheaper if there’s more of you, and for that you can’t complain, superb value for money. Didn’t use the clubhouse so can’t comment on that. Will be visiting again.

Great value for money

Would have been 5 star across the board if only the tee boxes were in better condition!! Fairways great, greens amazing, bunkers were okay but had a lot of stones in them, but unfortunately tee boxes were a mess!! Will play there again as the course was amazing and great value for money!!

Great course

Really impressive course especially when I only paid £15. Greens and fairways in very good condition, some tighter fairways but parkland course so very few lost balls. A good length off the yellows and options to make much longer of whites/blacks. I’ll definitely be back.

Great Winter Golf

Best course conditions I’ve played this winter season. Greens were in great shape and course drains very well. This was all the more evident when at the end of our round my hedgehog trolley wheels were as clean as when we started. Highly recommend the course. Nice layout, with good mix of holes for all skill levels.

Course in Fabulous Condition

For the time of year, the course was in great condition compared to others in the area. The welcome in the Pro Shop was friendly and helpful, unlike in previous reviews of mine, so that was a pleasant surprise. The pace of play was fairly slow, with many four balls in front of us (we were a two) but nothing to really complain about. The round was hard going because we had to carry our clubs as advised on the website...however there were plenty of Trollies being used, so the info was not consistent. Always enjoy playing the course, it's a real test...especially from the back tees for those who are brave enough. We will return.

Much improved welcome!!

We arrived at the course about an hour before our scheduled Tee off time but, after a quick warm up on the practice ground, we were permitted to go early. I must say the welcome we received was in stark contrast to our two previous and the course was in great condition considering the weather we've had. The Golf wasn't up to much but it was still nice to be out on a fabulous, well maintained course. We will return!!
