Founded in 1996, Bearwood Lakes golf course is a thrilling layout.
Bearwood Lakes golf meanders through a backdrop of mature pines, beech and oak trees with water coming into play on seven of the 18 magnificent holes. The stunning 18 hole, Par 72 layout measures 6,850 yards from the back tees and was designed by Guy Hockley, under the direction of Martin Hawtree.
The first few holes roll across perfectly manicured fairways before you head into the tree lined section of the course. A fuel stop at the Half-Way house will set you up nicely for holes 10 to 14 that really define the course – every single one a signature hole as you head for home along the edge of the main lake.
The par four 13th is a stunner, which requires a long carry from the elevated tee across the corner of the lake to a distant fairway. The green is cut alarmingly close to the water’s edge – this is not a hole for the faint-hearted. The 14th is probably Bearwood’s signature hole – and it’s a corking one-shotter, which requires an accurate mid iron across the corner of the lake.
The land from which the course was created was originally part of Windsor Great Park and formed part of the hunting grounds of the Kings of England. The natural beauty of the undulating and forested terrain, with spring fed lakes, made the wonderful setting perfect for creating a signature golf course. The original landscape, tree coverage and nature of the area have been retained wherever possible to create a wonderful backdrop to the golf course.
Visitors may only play golf at Bearwood Lakes as invited guests of members.
