Perfect conditions for time of Year !

First time playing this course and being the winter season wasnt expecting much, however was so shocked at how immaculate the course was for the time of year ! Greens played slow which can be expected in January, however up keep of tee boxes, fairways and greens were fab ! If I wanted to be picky the bunkers were not the best but still playable. A good mix of some tricky and easy holes. Thoroughly enjoyed my round and will be definitely revisiting !

Improved

Haven’t played the course for a year, the last 2-3 times the course was under repair but all appears over now and subsequently a much nicer course. Plenty of water , shortish course but a good mixture of hazards.

Great course in superb condition

Played this course for the first time and it certainly won't be the last. Super condion of greens and fairways. Plenty of space for the wayward shot.
I look forward to playing again soon

Hate the water

Love the front nine but back nine is a round destroyer. Couple of holes ruin your round where the water is and very much need to play Bicester a lot to know when you run out of fairway.
Tee shots were poor as well as fairways.Greens were good though.

Not looked after

Course was in really poor condition, looks like they need to invest a little more time and money.
The tee time we booked through tee times could not be honoured by the club....not even an apology given. Bit of a let down really much better courses out there for less money.

Nice course, slow play!

Turned up early and the guy in the pro shop let me straight out. Friendly members and quite chatty. Two really slow groups in front who took 4-5 holes to let me through but the course is in good condition and has a good challenge in store. On my list to play again in the near future.

Disappointing

I was very disappointed in Bicester.. First, the technology ought to make it possible to see who else is playing. In my case I was slap behind a 17-strong society group - the final group had ZERO sense of ettiquette. The fell well behind the match in front. I waited on almost every shot. Yet still seeing me waiting, they stood on the green, arguing the toss. Taking 10 minutes to look for a ball (which had clearly gone in the water) is unacceptable. There was a course marshal, but he seemed to only be interested in making sure that everyone had paid to play - not in moving people to a decent standard of play.

After taking 4 hours to play 12 holes, I eventually gave up, and skipped ahead to play the 17th and 18th. These two holes typify the stupid course design: stand of tall trees in the middle of the fairways. The 18th green had a huge mound in the middle of it - presumably because that's where they buried the course architect....

The whole resort is all fur coat and no knickers - a spa in the middle of an industrial estate, with the M40 roaring by. I won't be going again.

Its OK but not remarkable

I've played this course a number of times, it is the closest one to home, so convenient. Unfortunately it is very flat, & apart from a couple of tricky holes on the back 9 is fairly mundane & extremely forgiving for the most part

On the plus side it is kept in good nick, the greens are true & the staff always friendly. Unfortunately the bar is expensive for food & drinks, but it is part of a Hotel & Spa so to be expected I suppose.

Its OK for a quick knock, but I doubt I would consider it if I had to travel.
