Golf Monthly Readers Voice Their Opinions About Local Courses In Britain & Ireland

Scottsdale, Ariz. -- Congratulations to Bearwood Lakes Golf Club! A Troon Golf Privé Club of Distinction, Bearwood Lakes, in Berkshire, England has been awarded Gold by HSBC in the company's regional course rankings published alongside Golf Monthly's Top 120 course rankings. Golf Monthly is one of the leading and most well respected golf publications in the United Kingdom.

Hundreds of readers evaluated venues across the UK based on the quality of presentation and design as well as the club's welcome and ambience. In the regional rankings, little known courses and those that are considered a great value sit alongside those prestigious venues, rich in history and tradition. All of these courses comprise a comprehensive guide for the traveling golfer looking to play the best the United Kingdom has to offer!

What they said about Bearwood Lakes… "Step onto the clubhouse terrace at Bearwood Lakes [Golf Club] and the course stretches out before you like a fine canvas painting. The shape and lie of the land, the lushness of the grass and the presence of mature trees combine to make this a wonderful location for a golf course. Accuracy is vital if you are to score will. Stray from the immaculately manicured and well-defined fairways and the rough is penal - you'll need the strength and expertise of Tiger Woods to repair the damage."

Each course is given a mark out of ten for each criterion with a decimal point system, allowing panelists to distinguish between clubs that are similar in certain categories. For example, the difference between a 6.2 and a 6.8 for the Ambience category may lie in the way golfers are welcomed to the facility. The marks are then added together to give a total out of 40, which equates to one of the three award categories - bronze, silver or gold.

Bearwood Lakes is an oasis of calm and beauty set in the midst of one of the most commercially vibrant areas of Europe. With a backdrop of mature oak, lime and beech and surrounded by Scots pine, its undulating terrain rolls along the banks of Bearwood Lake, with dramatic views of the whole Bearwood Estate. The course is maintained to the highest possible standards by an exceptionally dedicated and knowledgeable greens keeping team using the most modern equipment. The finest bent and rye grasses, coupled with the latest irrigation systems have been used to provide superior playing surfaces all year round. Bearwood Lakes has been created to be challenging for all levels of play, from beginners to professionals.
