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.

9 Holer

Played here June 2019.

This is a 9 hole course that has some different tees if you go round again &.there is also a 9 hole par 3 course .
My first time here & although it's alright i probably wouldn't be that fussed about playing it again.

It's a fairly easy walking parkland course in pleasant surroundings ( it is very close to the M4 but surprisingly i didn't find myself being particularly aware of it) .
It was in good condition & the greens were nice to putt on however they were very firm & not receptive & hence it was tricky to get the ball pin high .
The pick of the holes for me was the 6th .On the par 3's ,i know there are different tee positions 2nd time around but i thought the bunker positioning could have been better on these holes.I also thought the bunker positioning could have been better generally on the course .

I also think the course is overpriced for what it is.The price quoted on a weekday afternoon was £23 & we got it much cheaper on Tee Off Times .
The par 3 course is fine for a knockabout .We played 9 on the main course & weren't enthused about going around it again & went & played the par 3 course .

The staff were friendly & polite on the visit but when i phoned up a few months before i felt the club were a bit inflexible & overly officious.When i saw a price on Tee Off Times i asked if we could play 9 on the main & 9 on the Par 3 instead of going round the main twice but surprisingly they said this would be more expensive to do this.

course was in excellent condition considering the weather. Very exposed with very little in the way of shelter so if the weather is windy its a tough round

Great track

We played here 10.1.2019 the course was in great condition for the time of year and greens were in fantastic shape I would say up there with some of the best I have played on. I know many courses suffered this year due to the dry weather and billingbear looks to have coped really well.
Overall a very enjoyable day friendly staff and reasonably priced green fee. I will be back soon keep up the good work billingbear.

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.

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
