The Berkshire Golf Club, Ascot England

The Berkshire Golf Club, Ascot England Highlights

One of the great golfing complexes in England is The Berkshire Golf Club west of London England, in the same famous heathland area that gave rise to classics such as Sunningdale, Wentworth, and Swinley Forest, and a worthy neighbor indeed. The Berkshire Golf Club is another traditional, classic club, but maybe not quite as bent on privacy (as evidenced by the large club entrance sign), and like nearby Sunningdale The Berkshire Golf Club possesses not one but two courses ranked in the British Isles’ top 100, the Red and the Blue. The Red is arguably the most famous of the two courses at The Berkshire Golf Club, with one of the more unique layouts in golf, especially considering its early vintage. It consists of an exciting assortment of 6 par-3’s, 6 par-4’s, and 6 par-5’s. Birdie opportunities abound, along with the potential for disaster. The Blue Course at The Berkshire Golf Club starts off even more unconventionally, with a demanding par-3 from the foot of the The Berkshire Golf Club clubhouse, but is much more traditional on the card. Many members of The Berkshire Golf Club consider it the greater challenge of the two. Both courses at The Berkshire Golf Club deliver a feeling of tremendous isolation as they wind their way through a dense forest of tall pines. Play both of them, with a clubhouse lunch in between, and you have completed a day at The Berkshire Golf Club in England to rival any in the British Isles!
