Originally within the grounds of Windsor Great Park, the Bearwood Estate has formed part of the hunting grounds for the Kings of England since the 11th century. Whilst the wild bears and boars have long gone, it still forms the natural habitat for magnificent deer and wildlife roaming the grounds. Although the course only opened in 1996, the forest terrain and woodland has evolved over centuries, creating one of the most inspiring golfing environments to be found anywhere in the world.
Set amidst 200 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside, the course at Bearwood Lakes is maintained with exceptional craftsmanship and unparalleled attention to detail, providing world class playing surfaces. With gently undulating putting surfaces constructed to full USGA specification, the course weaves its way through three natural lakes totalling 50 acres. The fairways are fully irrigated and a variety of tee positions provide a stimulating challenge for golfers of all abilities.

Confession! This is my home course. All members have a bit of a love/hate thing going with their own track. It’s like family! But I look forward to every single round I play here and have never heard a bad word about it from visitors. Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. The course is on clay and when it gets wet, it gets squelchy! The greens are usually excellent all year round but the rest of the course can be a slog in winter. If I’m being ultra critical some of our bunkers are a little shy on sand and I’m not a fan of the wooden sleepers guarding the front of the 16th. But members have got to have something to complain about! It’s a beautiful setting for golf. Rolling woodland terrain with the lakes in play on half a dozen holes. The signature is the short 14th across the water to an undulating green that requires no sand to protect it. Most holes are set apart from each other, several through corridors of tall pines where the breeze can swirl and confound you. There is enough elevation and change of direction to provide variety and challenge, and I’d like to think each hole is sufficiently different from the last to make the course stick in the memory. We are a private club with a pride in the condition of the course and the atmosphere around the club. We like it the way it is and want to keep it that way but if you ever receive an invitation you will be welcomed warmly.
