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.

Always excellent

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.

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.

a little softer than normal but excellent conditions

Wyncote is a great course. On this day the greens and fairways were a little softer than normal due to rain the previous day but everything was great otherwise. You better hit it straight here because if its a little off target your ball is lost in the jungle. On this day it was unusually calm with the wind which was a real plus.

Excellent Golf Course

Wyncote staff and crew is keeping this course in great condition. They have a nice course layout and you will get your mix of some easy holes and some very challenging holes. Absolutely love this course and I will be going back for more. Tee boxes, fairways and putting greens all in fantastic condition.

A gem...but issues

This absolutely beautiful course is 90 minutes from home, so I only get there once a year.

It’s always in immaculate condition with manicured fairways, true-rolling greens, and a varied, interesting layout.

But...last summer I took two foursomes out there and it was a 5 1/2 hour round due to the slow play of two groups of VERY deliberate older foursomes (we’re all seniors, too, but quick players). There was no Marshall and, when we called the shop, our complaints were ignored.

The other day, four of us went. The course was swarming with one and two player groups. We let one single and two twosomes through, although we were on a four hour pace, and finally decided enough was enough. We refused to let any other single play through.

Very poor course management...hook up the singles and twosomes!

PS....Why no flag system? The shop said they had no idea what the flag placements were....huh?

GREAT course...friendly staff...just be prepared...
