Calcot Park Golf Club is one of the lesser known designs on Harry Colt’s CV, laid out in collaboration with John Morrison. It’s set in beautiful, undulating parkland and its four short holes are among the best collection of one shotters in Berkshire.
Calcot Park lies in the middle of suburbia and with Reading town centre only a mile away in one direction and the M4 motorway equidistant in the other direction, Calcot Park is a good day out with easy access from most parts of Southern England. The greens on the course were well above average and the course condition in general was pretty good.
Sadly, apart from the Par 3 7th hole the rest of the course is nothing more than an average parkland layout and we left feeling quite uninspired to return. The 3.5 review rating is purely for the greens, they were the highlight!
if you get the chance to play it then by all means it is a nice round of golf but as mentioned already, the layout is limited by the space the course sits on.
Calcot gets better every time i play it. The appointment of a new greenskeeper has seen vast improvements of green surfaces and the green surrounds. However there is only so much you can do with the land, and a lot of the holes are uninspiring. A decent parkland course worth playing if you want to putt on good greens
