Welcome to Easthampstead Golf Club

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 £75), 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).

ELGC success in NAPGC Pairs final

ELGC success in NAPGC Pairs final
We started the competition back in April and got off to a good start by beating White Lodge A at Richmond Park. Then, later in April, we met Little Hay C on our home course at Downshire. Then came Hoebridge C, again at Downshire. This win took us into the area final where we played against Farnham Park F, at Farnham Park. The semi-final was against Farnham Park C and we played at Little Hay. Then on to the final at Frilford Heath GC where we won on the 18th. We really enjoyed this competition and will certainly enter again next year. Jo
