Both courses at The Berkshire are quality with the Red being my favourite, but only just. It is well known that the area around Surrey/Berks has some of the very best heathland courses around and the Red in my opinion is towards the upper end of this list. A fairly friendly start in terms of difficult holes to score on and on a good day you can go close to par for the front nine. The Berkshire members stand for traditional golfing values and this is most noticeable around the clubhouse (which is under major surgery) – all very friendly and polite. The course is special and highly recommended – personally I enjoyed the Red more than the West at Wentworth.
