Nothing fancy frills, just a well maintained parkland course. Greens were emasculate - from previous reviews this place has come on well. Only callout would be it is a little too simple, more hazards, obstacles, trees are needed. Many players are using neighbouring holes fairways which really slows play.
That being said, new to golf? High handicapper? This is a good track.
Hard course to score low on
Only reason I gave average as there are a lot of challenges to overcome to score low - sloping fairways, multi tiered greens and crowned greens - these are probably welcomed by the low handicappers, but us fair weather golfers are frustrated to see a reasonable shot catch a second tier to be dumped off the green. We also played after some really heavy rain the previous days, the course was all open just a but soft in places which is remarkable - some lovely scenery and some lovely holes !
In great condition
Having played this course since it first opened I must comment on how great the greens were looking and playing. Overall the course is in the bestoverall condition I have ever seen it.
It is a challenging course, what with all the steep inclines to deal with and plays a bit long on occasion but, a great course, especially if the wind is in your favour. And, the views are obviously outstanding.
Very open course in excellent condition. Wonderful views of Oxford. Long walks from green to next tee in places and signage could be improved.
The Highs of Hinksey
This course does not beat you up. No forests to explore, no long grasses to snarl your club. Narrow fairways bordered by slopes that allow you to play on. Interesting greens that qualify it as a championship course. Views that allow the spires to inspire and a feeling of being on top of our globe.
Golf with a view
Have played here a few times in the last few years and the course condition has improved immeasurably. Greens, fairways and tee boxes all in very good condition.
Unfortunately the pace was a bit slow with 2 balls and 4 balls mixed in the field. I think if 2 balls were made to join up this could have been alleviated.
However still a really enjoyable Saturday morning with stunning views of Oxford foc.
Look forward to my next round soon.
Challenging course with superb views
The course was in excellent condition, with the tee boxes, fairways and greens in superb condition. There were numerous bunkers GUR, but that did not detract from my enjoyment. I would gladly play this course again.
Game of 2 halves
First 9 seem pretty basic and not overly interesting, but then as you get to the latter holes on the course, it becomes much more challenging and scenic.
Really enjoyed this course, some great holes that are really challenging. Would like to maybe see another par 3 in there but apart from that. Great time had by all!
Great great great
Great course hills & slopes every where that make it a challenge but let’s face it flat can be boring... most bunkers are gur which can be a pain .... views to die for if the weather is nice .... Plenty of wind if the weather isn’t to good ..... friendly staff make it just a great place to go.
