What the club says: Our 18-hole 'pay and play' golf course complex is designed to be enjoyed by beginners and experienced players alike.

Whether as an experienced golfer you want to play The Old Course, for 9 or 18 holes of beautiful parkland golf, or sharpen up your short game on The New Course, a stunning 9-hole Par-3 course featuring two holes where your tee shot from the back tees are played entirely over water, Billingbear Park has a lot to offer. Many believe we have one of the best pay&play golf courses in Berkshire.

Reviewed Sep 6 2018 by TR/Wokingham - rated 1 out of 5

In dreadful condition.

Used to play this course a lot & whilst I appreciate that we've not had the best summer for greenkeepers & that green tining needs to take place around now... these greens were absolutely atrocious yesterday. Tined but badly sanded. Bare in patches. Long grass in other patches. Bobbly and never true. Such a shame.
Members here are generally long-retired and tend to refuse to let groups behind through.

Excellent value for money. Friendly owners and staff. Greens usually very good - especially for a pay and play. Wet in winter.

Vastly Improved

It's been quite a while since I've played here, but in that time the course has really improved. There are far more grown trees giving a few of the holes some definition, there's a new clubhouse, and the course itself is in very good condition.

There's a 9 hole course (The Old Course) which when played twice stretches to 5587 yards from the yellows, plus a 9 hole par 3 course. This review is about the Old Course, although from memory the par 3 course was well worth playing.

Whilst the course isn't the longest, there aren't many holes that could be classed as easy. There are a number of holes with small, contoured greens, and 3 holes (6 if you're playing it twice) where water is very much in play. That said, it is a course that would suit all standards of player.

I was pleasantly surprised with the fairways and greens, which were in very good condition given the recent wet and snowy weather. The tees were decent. My favourite hole would be the 6th/15th, which is a very pretty dog leg hole around a lake.

The clubhouse is smaller than a lot of courses, but certainly pleasant enough, and there was a lovely welcome when paying the green fee.

I'll definately be back again soon.

Billingbear great course

Congratulations to the green keepers at the course it’s in wonderful condition for this time of year and the greens are outstanding. Played 18 holes twice round the same 9 but off different tees for the second nine . Nice club house and staff definitely worth playing and will be returning

This course is brilliant - beautiful course on which to play. Only complaint, a lot of the people who play there are of the OAP persuasion (as indeed am I), but most of them are so slow and there's no course marshal to keep them moving at a reasonable rate. Can be frustrating because of that.
