Worst course ever played

I have played around 200 courses around UK and most of the rest of the world. This has to be the worst ever. Staff in pro shop at check in were friendly and helpful but very much downhill when we got out on the course. No decent golfer minds a tough challenge but this course is a total joke!! Sorry people in Oxfordshire, but if this I’s the only place you get to play, I feel sorry for you!!

Solid Course

Good solid course offering some challenging holes and excellent value for money. The practice facilities have been upgraded and the driving range has added ball tracking software (at no additional cost).

Walked off after 4 hours and only being on the 14th hole

As the title states pace of play today was poor. To me felt like it over booked held up on every hole. Gave up after walking to the 14th and two 4balls and a 3 ball in front. Not once didn’t anyone offer to let you get ahead.

On the plus side the course was nice well maintained. Shame we didn’t get to play the rest.

Lovely but very hard!

Played Drayton many times and it's definitely one of the best courses in the area. It's a well run club and always very busy. It's got all the facilities you can think of and even got top tracer at the range now. As for the course it's definitely the hardest I've ever played. The hardest part for me is the fact that if you ever so slightly hit a poor shot that misses left or right your ball is simply lost there's no other way round it. Everywhere seems to be just covered in trees and bushes and there are also a load of bunkers and water hazards to watch out for. But if you are a decent golfer there's no doubt you'll love this course. Always seems to be in perfect condition and there are some extraordinary holes. Number 4 tricky par 3 over water, number 6 long par 5 with 2 separate fairway ditches to be aware of, number 9 par 4 that cuts across a farmer's field and then doglegs left and number 15 is the typical water on the left water on the right par 4 narrow fairway with the green absolutely surrounded by like 5 bunkers! Highly recommended this course particularly to decent golfers.

Pleasantly surprising

Hadn't played the course for many years so I was pleasantly surprised by how much it had changed. Condition was go with the fairways quite green after the dry weather. The greens were excellent and held the ball well, the tees were quite good and no doubt will get better with future rain.
Course layout was better than I remembered but there are a couple of holes that could be better.
All in all a very pleasant afternoons golf. Worth a visit.

Course in very good condition

The course had been closed for a few days due to the recent snow and this was the first day it had been open. I was anticipating less than perfect course conditions but was surprised to find the course in near perfect condition, fairways and green were not at all wet. The course played well, shame I didn't.
