Wyncote Golf Club
Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford is one of the most challenging courses in the area. The heathlands layout feels like a links course with wind being an important factor and thick fescue coming into play. The golf course starts with an especially tough front nine but there are more scoring opportunities on the back. Mounded bunkers and moguls define the movement of the fairways and though there aren't many trees, if you don't keep your shots straight you might find yourself out-of-bounds or lost in the high, wiry grass. Sidehill lies await you as well as a few blind shots. Wyncote's greens have little undulation but the lightning fast putting surfaces are a challenge for players of all skill levels. With a few "grip it and rip it" holes mixed in, Wyncote Golf Club is a tough but fair test.

Great layout, some problems.
Tee boxes were average but were not flat. Fairways and rough were in good shape. The course burns the tall fescue at the end of year which became a problem. If you’re ball went in that area is was very difficult to find you’re ball due to there being multiple balls that had not been removed from the course staff. Also if your wear white shoes they will get destroyed from the charred fescue. And last the greens, they were only in ok shape. They were super slow and very bumpy. Overall it was a nice course with a few problem areas.
My wife and I have played this course several times and looked forward to playing it. However, we were extremely disappointed this last round. When we made the reservation through Golfnow, we were not made aware that the greens had been aerated and heavily sanded. They also only had one set of tees, all in the forward tee boxes. My wife had to tee off from the same tee boxes as the men. Had we been made aware of this, we would not have played, especially since we still payed the regular Golfnow price. We felt let down by both the course and Golfnow for not being upfront with customers.
We drove 2 hours yesterday to go there. Called first and was told by the pro shop that the greens were aerated but they were sanded and rolled. This was not true it was like playing on the moon. Worst greens ever. They also put us on the ladies tees without prior notice no other tees open. We thought it over during the night and called to express our concerns today, I got barely any response. Probably a nice course but hiding things from players coming there is not good.
If you love golf, You will love this place . It's all here. Great golf ,great course layout, challenging, but not over the top difficult. If you can walk , it's an easy walk. Conditions are generally great .
Practice areas are good representations of on course conditions. Mid and post round Pub fare is great tasting and
All in all a wonderful golf experience.!!
Best Public Course in the Area
I only play here a couple times a year since the in season rates are a little out my price range, but even the shoulder season conditions are nothing short of superb. Played in early Nov and everything looked perfect. Fast greens, good bunkers and great fairways. love the layout; difficult but fun. Play if you get the chance.
Play here, it’s not baaad
One of the best courses in the area. Beautiful grounds, challenging layout and sheep! There’s a new sheep pen next to 2nd & 11th tee boxes; about 5 sheep grazing therein. Wonderful. Course conditions couldn’t have been better on the perfectly brisk fall day we played - 10/25/19. Play here as often as you can. Baaahh
Course is in great shape
Only problem course was full of seniors from 70 and up on every hole sometimes 3 groups on one hole sat on hole waiting for group in front to tee off need ranger.
Of course was in perfect conditions particularly the greens which ran very true. This is not a course you want to play on a windy day unless you came very much control your golf ball. Fortunately the day was perfect so the course was a real pleasure to play.
I had a GolfNow hot deal which made it a great value. Otherwise the course might be a little pricey but worth it it's here looking for a quality experience.
As challenging as you want, pick your tee. Great conditions, fast greens, could have used a caddy for the reads.
Poor t time management
Played last Saturday. When mader t time no indication of an outing would be playing in front of us. 40 person outing. It took us 5.5 hours to play. Poor course management. Should have made outing go out on back 9 first. Since it was a shotgun start.
This course was in mint condition compare to all the courses in Delaware.
