The Berkshire Golf Club was founded in 1928 and is one of the UK’s most prestigious golf clubs. It is home to two championship courses (Red & Blue) both widely regarded as amongst the best courses in the British Isles. The Red Course (the host venue for The Duel of The Jockeys) is ranked 20th in the Top 100 UK courses so expect a memorable day at one of the finest examples of heathland golf in the world.
Many golfers will know The Berkshire for one of the biggest amateur competitions in golf. The Berkshire Trophy sees elite amateur golfers do battle over 72 holes every June in their attempt to join the likes of six-time major winner Sir Nick Faldo and more recently European Tour players Eddie Pepperell and Ross Fisher as past winners of the event.
Located just 20 miles away from Central London, and even closer to London Heathrow Airport the course is perfect for both international golfers and those living within easy reach of the M25. The club is also only 5 minutes from Ascot Racecourse, so you could play a round of golf and then head straight to Ascot and enjoy the races.
