Easthampstead Golf Club is a friendly, sociable club consisting of two independent golf clubs, a Men’s and a Ladies’ Club, both based at the well regarded Downshire Golf Complex, near Bracknell in Berkshire. The Complex is owned and run by Bracknell Forest Council and features an 18 hole championship golf course, a driving range and a pitch-and-putt course alongside its clubhouse facility and well stocked golf shop.
Our aim is to provide an affordable opportunity for our members to enjoy regular competitive and friendly golf, as well as a calendar of varied and enjoyable social events. Competitions run throughout the year, with regular weekend competitions (some Saturday, some Sunday), as well as regular mid-week competitions and friendly games. Members will also have the opportunity to play in external competitions (both clubs are members of the NAPGC).
New members of all ages are always welcome, whether they are experienced golfers or people new to the game. The Club offers subsidised Golf coaching with the PGA Pro's at the Complex for those loking to improve their game. There is currently no joining fee for the Men’s Club (new members only having to pay the annual membership fee of £80), while Ladies pay a joining fee £35 plus an annual subscription of only £50. In addition the Men’s club has a thriving junior section which provides under-18 boys and girls with the opportunity to learn the game and play in junior competitions. The Complex operates on a pay-and-play basis, so green fees have to be paid before play, but that does mean that you only have to pay for the golf that you actually play (the Complex also offers season ticket options which can be beneficial if you play regularly).

Captains Charity Update
It was with the greatest of pleasure that, on behalf of Easthampstead Golf Club, I visited Wokingham Hospice today to formally present them with the exercise machine, see it in action and the benefit that patients receive - at first hand I may add!
I am very grateful to all of our members, their families and friends who so generously purchased raffle tickets, donated prizes and put their spare change in the 'rattlin' tin on the bar to ensure this key piece of equipment could be purchased so quickly. We're not finished yet as we will continue to raise funds for the Hospice until the end of my Captain's year and look forward to making a final donation at our AGM.
Some good results for ELGC today at Bromsgrove at the Ladies Championship of England.
Alex Cram won the nett on countback from Donna Hunt who was second. Well done girls!!
Sonoko Gauci just missed out on 4th in the bronze division.
The overall champ was Sandra Combstock from Hoebridge, she's threatened to win several times, and this is her first win.
Also there were Ish Thomson, Hazel Rogers, Jo Lawton-Davies and Sandra Cook. Jayne Parsonage was also there but representing Bird Hills.
