About the Club

Set against the picturesque backcloth of the Hampshire Downs, Newbury and Crookham offers views of enchanting woodland and beautiful parkland, a visual delight, meandering from Greenham Common to Newbury Racecourse and back.

Although under 6,000 yards the course has the feel of being much longer and is a tight 18 hole challenge where accuracy is all-important. Improvements in the past few years, undertaken to modernize the course, have taken place under the guidance of the internationally known Course Architect, Howard Swan.

The course offers magnificent vistas at almost every high point and from the 7th tee it appears that almost the whole of Berkshire can be seen on a clear day. At the 3rd green bluebells abound in the Spring, as do thousands of daffodils planted at the 8th green, greeting the weary golfer and lifting his or her spirits as one of the most difficult par 4s in the south of England is completed.

The Club has a busy calendar of competitions and during most weekends in the playing season members can take part in competitions of varying formats. Societies and green fee paying visitors are welcome on weekdays, although it is advisable to telephone in advance to ensure that the course is free.

Courses & Scorecards

Newbury & Crookham Golf Club

The course is set in approximately 120 acres of Berkshire downs, which is covered in part in woodland and follows a route of one large circuit from the 1st to the 9th and 2 smaller circuits, the 10th through the 13th and the 14th to the 18th, the latter section being known as the park.

The course consists of five par 3s, two par 5s and a collection of par 4s that make up a challenge where accuracy and touch are far more important than brute force and length off the tee. You will find the greens far more testing than most with subtle breaks and in some cases at least one dropped shot if you are unfortunate enough to find yourself putting from above the hole. As you play the course you will discover places where you can attack the course in search of birdies and eagles but also key holes where defence is the best form of attack and par is worth more than regulation golf.

The last five holes, christened 'The Park', can be formidable and no score or match is safe until these holes have been negotiated.
