The Course

Our Golf Course - Unique and steeped in history

18 holes set amongst the beautiful Berkshire countryside

History about the Golf Course… 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.

Bearwood Lakes hosts a thrilling Rose Ladies Series 2020

Georgia Hall, having come 2nd in all her other three Rose Series starts, went one better at Bearwood Lakes by taking top spot.

Georgia gave full praise to the Club.  “Being one of the most exclusive clubs in England expectation was always high and the course certainly delivered”, Hall was heard to say that the greens were the best she had ever played on in Great Britain!

This was the first time an event of this stature had been played at Bearwood Lakes, a course specially chosen by Justin and Kate Rose and shows the trust they had in great friend and neighbour, owner Gary Holloway, on his club to deliver.

Congratulations to Hall, all the other competitors, the staff and members of Bearwood Lakes and all involved in the remaining events on the series.

Senior Open Qualifying Venue

Bearwood Lakes were thrilled that, in the 25th Anniversary year, they were a  qualifying course for the Senior Open, on Monday 19th July.

The 2021 Senior Open Presented by Rolex went on to take place at Sunningdale Golf Club, from 22nd to 25th July. The Championship was hosted at Sunningdale one year on from its original date following its cancellation due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Being awarded the status of a qualifying course for the Senior Open for 2021 is greatly thanks to the immense work that Andrew and his greenkeeping team put in during the turmoil of 2020 and the quality of the course during this time.

David Williams, Tournament Director for the Senior Open presented by Rolex, said: ‘We have chosen four fine golf courses to stage the qualifying events for the Senior Open in 2021 and they will provide a true test of golf for the hundreds of players aiming to earn a spot at Sunningdale’.

The whole team is honoured to be invited by the R&A and European Tour to be involved in hosting such an important event and playing our part in Legends Tour golf.

Gary Player And A Buggy At Bearwood Lakes June 2022

Gary Player  – regular visitor to the Club

In 2019, Bearwood Lakes Golf Club had the ultimate privilege of welcoming golfing legend Gary Player, the Black Knight. During his game over 18 holes with good friends, our proprietor Gary Holloway joined them in a buggy.

Gary Player talked passionately about the track,  his only criticism of the course was the bunker short of the 15th green as he feels 50-60 yard bunker shots are unfair for golfers. His words “bar that bunker he would rate our course 10 out of 10”.   High praise indeed.

We are absolutely honoured to have met Gary Player and very proud that he enjoyed playing our ‘magnificent golf course’ his words on the 18th hole “this is one of the finest courses I have played in many years”.  Being a man of nature he relished playing through the natural topography amongst deer, woodpeckers, swans, red kites, mature woodland, beautiful lakes, no cars, houses, or roads just a serene environment with a pristine track.

The great man couldn’t stay away; visiting again in June 2022.  He told Gary Holloway that “this place is like being in paradise”.
