Almost all the golf courses in our top-100 have a long history because one of the tests of greatness is longevity – has the course stood the test of time.
And because there are so many superb layouts in the UK that are at least a century old, any newcomer that breaks into their ranks must be pretty special.
Bearwood Lakes is just such a place.
It was founded in 1996 over land that was at one time part of Windsor Great Park and the undulating, heavily wooded terrain, which includes several lakes, helps create one of England’s best inland courses.
The first four holes are quite open but then the real challenge starts as you enter the tree-lined fairways and the real heart of the beast is from holes 10-14, where water is a significant factor.
The course is well bunkered but the hazards are flattish and unless you’re very unlucky, you should have a shot. In comparison to many of the courses in our top-100, Bearwoood Lakes offers something different but nevertheless hugely enjoyable.
