About East Berkshire GC
Recognised as one of the best courses in the South of England, East Berkshire Golf Club was founded in 1903 and is a very traditional heathland course. Heather is a big feature, providing a number of cross-hazards on some of the long holes. Cleverly designed doglegs ensure that the course plays longer than the yardage suggests.
The par three 5th is very special and certainly the signature hole at East Berkshire. The green is well protected by a ditch to the front, a lateral ditch with out-of-bounds to the left and a very hungry bunker on the right. The tee shot must carry 150 yards over rough ground to reach the green. With trees on either side, this is a tough par three.
The East Berkshire Stag was introduced in 1976 – a competition open to amateur golfers with a handicap of six and under. The first winner of the event was none other than Sandy Lyle with a two-round total of 141.
At less than 6,500 yards, the course is not long by modern standards but the constant encounter with doglegs, tree-lined fairways, carries across streams and the tangly heather will tax the skills of many a golfer intent on playing to handicap. It is a very attractive course and whoever decides to play here will be assured of an enjoyable round from start to finish.
