Type Semi-Private
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.

Challenging Course

I played behind high school kids walking. The pace of play was very aggravating, very slow, waiting for at least 10 minuets at every hole for 9 holes. The second 9 holes moved at normal pace. The course was very challenging, it plays long. If you don't hit drives at least 250 yards it will be a long day. The course conditions were excellent and a very nice layout. I hate sand base on the tee boxes it scratches your clubs, use dirt can't be that much more money.

Great course

Course was in great condition. Only 4 holes were cart path only due to recent rain. Traps weren’t too bad. Tee boxes, fairways and greens all in good shape. Thick rough. Greens were very fast. Narrow and challenging course but a lot of fun.

Great as always

Rarely have I been able to play a great course in just over 2 hours for 18 holes. I was a solo on a Tuesday afternoon on a GolfNow Hot Deal, but I never had to wait at all. For some reason, Wyncote has the rep for being an expensive upscale course, but it's really not expensive for what you get, which is perfect course conditions. It was a little overcast and not too hot, so playing conditions were also perfect. Greens were not as fast as you might expect, but rolled true despite the top coat. Maybe there was a little less break than normal, but that just added to playability. You have to keep your ball in play (I did) or you'll quickly find yourself in deep grass, so it's not a good course for very windy days or if you spray it. It's a five-star experience when you can play quickly, and I was actually tempted to play some more holes.

Wonderfully maintained, bring extra balls

The course is maintained very well. Best fairways I’ve seen this year. Tee boxes very good. Sand traps were in good shape given the deluge of rIn we’ve had lately. The greens were good but a bit slow. The fescue is everywhere and swallows balls. That caused slow play without a Marshall around. High handicappers teed up forward but they were in the fescue looking for balls often. I got in it too often, letting it get in my head, so prepare for it. It’s beautiful scenery with Amish buggies on the roads and one young fella playing as well. It’s worth the drive and a good price in the afternoon. One of the best courses I’ve played and I sure wish they’d put a fescue idol at the practice green so we could donate a few balls to and get it over with faster. Go play, try to enjoy it, and use you older balls because you won’t find them in the fescue.

Tough but fair

Great course with generous fairways but harsh penalties if you miss. Lots of risk/ reward opportunities. Greens were fast and true. Overall, everything was in great shape. Highly recommended.

Cutting Corners - Saving Money

I should have realized something was up, when I arrived and there was nobody at the bag stand. After waiting for someone to check me in, I proceeded to the first tee. There was no starter, and this is where the trouble began. Golfers were teeing off willy nilly as twosomes, foursomes and singles. My partner and I offered to pair up with the twosome behind us, but they declined. Having a starter would have organized the groups and elimated the 3 hour front nine. I didn’t stick around for the back nine.

Played by myself all 18 holds which I didn't mind because I could see the flow of the different holds except the last hold which is a blind second shot. also I don't think that when you're paying these prices to have to pay for water on the course, especially on these hot days.

Well worth the drive

Drove an hour and a half to play Wyncote and it did not disappoint. Fescue was unplayable and ate up all bad tee shots, as it should be. Course conditions were excellent and the greens ran true with plenty of tricky contours. Staff was friendly to point out some tips because it was my first time playing. Won't be my last time at Wyncote!
