Winter Hill is a beautiful parkland course that's set in a curve of the world famous River Thames with wonderful views across the surrounding area and beyond.
There are some particularly long par fours and a couple of par fives that will test your long iron play to its very limits. The heavily guarded greens and numerous hidden surprises mean this course is no pushover - you need to keep your wits about you at all times or pay the penalty.
It is a lovely looking course and the tees and fairways are usually in great condition while the greens are some of the best around. In the summer months they can become quite fast, making those shaky three footers seem just that bit longer!
The emphasis at Winter Hill is on accuracy rather than length, and the ability to get into position to leave an easy shot to the green is important.
The course has been developed on a gentle east-facing hillside and is arguably one of the most attractive courses in the Thames Valley. The panoramic views over the river at Cookham are breathtaking and on a clear day you can see as far as Ascot and beyond. In addition, the fairways, tees and greens are playable through most weather conditions, thanks to the courses good natural drainage.
Winter Hills signature hole is the 15th, a par 3 which requires a well-struck short iron to carry over the valley and nestle close to the flag. The well-guarded green slopes away sharply on three sides.
All in all, this course is a real challenge. The changes in elevation test club selection; on some holes you are forced to play approach shots into greens which lie as much as 50' below you.
The Winter Hill green keepers maintain the course in superb condition all year round and in addition, the wildlife on the course is worth the green fee alone.
