What the club says: Calcot Park is an undulating, traditional, parkland course and is recognised as one of the best in the area. It was designed by Harry Colt in 1930 who also built, amongst others, Beaconsfield, Denham, Stoke Park, Sunningdale Old, Swinley Forest along with the East and West courses at Wentworth Club in Surrey.

The 18-hole course, Par and SSS 70, is 6216 yards long off the White Tees and is acknowledged as a demanding, yet fair test of golf. There are two par five's, both reachable in two by strong hitters and four excellent par three's, including the 7th, our signature hole, played across a lake to an elevated green.

The 13th is played across a stream in a shallow valley to a contoured green. The course opens and closes with two, long par four's. There are three small practice areas, practice nets and two practice chipping and putting greens.

Calcot Park has an abundance of mature trees and shrubs and the areas surrounding the course are home to a variety of wildlife including badgers, foxes and deer.

Great course, fast greens

Great course, well maintained. The day was sunny and the course was dry, hence the greens were very fast and it took a long time to get used to them

Great course in heart of Reading

Excellent track - fairly long with numerous 400+ par 4s off the yellows, you need to be hitting the big stick well! All the par 3s are interesting, beautiful holes.

Greens were tinned recently so not a true reflection but still in excellent condition for November, and the same with the fairways considering the bit summer.

Pro shop is nice, lovely club house and all staff very welcoming. Will be returning as soon as I can, £100 for a winter 4 ball is an excellent bargain!

Good Course

Played here in a match so off the whites luckily it was bone dry because this is a long track. The greens and tee boxes well watered and in great condition, fairways are dry but who's aren't. Great hospitality. Some super holes play it if you get the chance.

Lovely course

This was my first time playing Calcot Park, but I'm hoping it won't be my last. The first impressions are excellent; the clubhouse is nice, you get a very good welcome in the pro shop, and the holes on display wet the appetite for the round to come.

After a fairly heavy frost the night before the greens were still very firm, and even without the frost these greens aren't easy. It seems like most of them are raised, and none of them are flat. They are all smooth and quick though, even now in the latter half of December.

The fairways are generally forgiving with only a few tighter driving holes, and just like the greens, they're in very good condtion. There are some wonderful looking holes here too, with the par 3 7th over the lake probably the most memorable. There are quite a few running it close though.

I played here as part of a £99/4 ball deal, and that was certainly worth the money. The summer rate would make me think twice though.

Colt designed and it really shows in places. Some very picturesque views at various points as you go round. Seemed to play longer that it's indicated length. Could do with a little more sand in a few bunkers and greens whilst in great shape were slower than expected, but otherwise a lovely course which I look forward to playing again. Great home made pie in the clubhouse afterwards too.

This is a very nice mature parkland course, really quite challenging on the approach to the greens due to well designed greens and bunkers. The course is in great condition. Some members clearly do not like visitors and we had a very unpleasant experience with one such member, which for the modern game and the way clubs need visitors is a shame.

Although one of the greens was being improved, the rest of the course was in very good condition, just a few areas with standing water after the previous day's rain.

Despite the terrible weather over the last few months (and on the day) the course was still in excellent condition. With predominantly longish par 4's making up most of the holes , your driver is in use on nearly every tee, but the course looks much tighter than it plays with bail out areas for errant drives on most holes. With little variety needed off the tee the main feature of the course are the undulating greens which were hard underfoot (despite the rain) true and very quick, so your approach irons must leave you in the right place to avoid 3 putting. Club members and staff were very friendly and overall its a quality course, but not one to play very week if you want a bit of variety to your round.

Quite a long course for the colder weather, and some elevation changes mean it plays even longer. Nestled well within the trees I can imagine a good test in the summer when the tress full out and the fairways run a bit more.
