HIGHLY RATED - 100% would play again or recommend

What the club says: The golf course measures 6,329 yards and has a par of 70 and a SSS of 71. It generally plays longer than its yardage due to the elevations of several greens and fairways. Although originally a heath land course, there is now an abundance of mature trees and shrubs that line its fairways.

The greens are always true and fast and will test the very best of players. Peter Alliss has described our 17th hole as “one of the best short holes in the South of England”. The course is always in excellent condition throughout the year, and as written in the Michelin Guide “It is well worth a detour”. Martin Hawtree, the renowned international golf course architect, has redesigned Sonning’s original Taylor/Colt layout and has produced an impressive new 18th hole that finishes in front of the clubhouse. With an excellent practice range and short game area, Sonning provides some of the best facilities in the South of England.

Alan P. Ascot rated 5 out of 5 - Aug 8 2013
Excellent golf course. Very well looked after. Tee boxes, greens and fringes all very, very good. If you miss a green here you can get up and down as you will nearly always have a good lie and the greens are true so you can putt. Very nice bar and outside patio areas with view overlooking the course. Recommended.

Peter Hadden rated 4 out of 5 - Jun 16 2013
I play here once each year in a charity fund-raising event and it has been interesting to see how the course has improved over that time. It looks like a lot of money has been spent here especially over the last two or three years not just with the creation of the new 18th hole but in improving the overall quality and presentation of the course. The greens last Friday were as fast and smooth as any I have played in the last couple of years if a little difficult to hold with approach shots for a player of my modest ability (14 handicap).\\A really top-notch course now and, as it is not as high profile as some in this part of the world, not frighteningly expensive.

Very nice course but because of the poor start to summer the greens were very poor. (Round played: Apr 2013 - Score: 110 Handicap: )

David Thomas rated 3 out of 5 - Apr 25 2012
Played Sonning on a lovely day before the rains plummeted down in late April. The course has recently been changed around and indeed it is only a week since all the changes have been implemented, the 1st now being the old 8th, and the 18th is now a completely new hole, a par 5 of 465 yards, and a fine hole at that. A very easy walking course, Sonning is just two years away from its centenery and the course is in a fine mature setting with many trees and substantial gorse. A number of long par 4's ensure a good test of ball hitting ability and indeed, this is shown with the rare situation of SSS being one more than Par off Whites. There are no real "death or Glory" holes, but there are also no real weak ones, and overall, it is a very satisfactory golf course that should please all who play there. As an added bonus, a very pleasant and efficient pro, and a warm welcome from all in the clubhouse for a solo visitor as I was - always appreciated

A classy course and clubhouse to match. The course is a good challenge and always in good condition. If I lived local to this course I'd seriously consider joining.
