Founded in 1896 and set in 150 acres of mature woodland, Maidenhead Golf Club is only a five-minute walk from the town centre and has been described as a hidden gem in the heart of Maidenhead.
Maidenhead is nice. It is nothing special, but offers a short, fun and challenging layout. The greens are tiny, which is the toughest part of the course. There is talk of it closing soon, so if you want to play it, then play it soon. However, there are better courses locally.
Maidenhead is a mature parkland course where you get a warm welcome, a well presented course and very good greens. You wouldn't really notice you are close to the centre of Maidenhead and hemmed in by houses, and on a couple of visits I have seen deer strolling around. No real stand-out holes, but most are good and certainly have enough interest for an occasional visit; infact the only hole I dislike is the 4th, a long par 4 (stroke index 1 I think) which has little of interest. Some nice dog-legs, some short par 4's, a couple of birdeable par 5's so a good mix. I always find the 3rd a very tricky hole with a downhill approach to a blind green with trees and trouble all around, but my favourite hole would be the sweeping dog-leg hole 7 which is a nice looking driving hole which offers a birdie chance once you have hit the perfect drive.
Alas the course will soon be covered by new houses, so if in the area get and play it while you can.
