Other than the world-renowned Wentworth Club, country clubs abound in the area such as Foxhills, Queenwood, Sunningdale and the Royal Berkshire.

The Wentworth Estate extends to approximately 1,750 acres, it’s history dates back to the early 1920’s when the visionary developer, Tarrant purchased an agricultural estate around which he created his rural dream of substantial mansions set in beautiful mature gardens. Today there are three 18 hole golf courses including the Championship West Course and the Wentworth Club with swimming pools, restaurants, tennis courts, health and leisure facilities. The estate also has CCTV security cameras on all entrances which are linked to the local Police and Knight Security.
