    Newbie in Berkshire

    I have recently started playing golf. I feel I am now ready to join a club. I am looking for one where ladies have the opportunity to play on weekends as I work full time. I am trying to visit as many clubs as possible but have only played at one of them. I would also be looking at the social side as I believe that plays a big part in golf too. Would love to hear your recommendations.

    Hi Zazas welcome along. A very very very knowledgeable young man called Homer will be along in the not too distant future, once he has left the practice ground and he will no doubt be able to steer you in some direction which I hope will be of use to you. Good luck

    Yep! Welcome aboard!

    Berkshire covers quite a range of both area and prices!

    Quite important, imo, to select a club that is 'convenient' as well as, in your case, being 'Working Female friendly'! There should be plenty about, so should be plenty of choice.

    Hi, yep have heard of Homer . I am based in Wokingham and having lessons at Bearwood, but I think that course might be a bit long for me to jump straight on to. I have been playing at Billingbear (cheap and convenient) but would like to be part of a club. I may be wrong !!

    Welcome along. As the forum sages have said, I play out of Royal Ascot so nice and convenient for you. Far less water than Bearwood Lakes and a very active ladies section with regular comps at weekends. Other than that, there is Easthampstead Ladies based out of the Downshire golf centre. You could also look at Sand Martins although I can't vouch for what their ladies section is like

    Bearwood is nice, but there are some really dodgy members. I can put you in touch with Slasher if you like. Think he might now be known as Hector.
