Fantastic evening of golf, comfortably squeezed in 9 holes with no one in front or behind us. Course met every expectation. Managed to play 10, 11, 17 and 18 before the light got us. Great challenging course.
An amazing experience
Worth every penny. Such a challenging and wonderful course.
A Stadium course
The Oxfordshire is a sculpted stadium / resort course that is nice to play. Not traditional but a good challenge with some good holes.
The fairways and light rough are wide so not too hard to find your ball and nots lots of looking in woods and deep rough. A fair bit of water but no real forced carries.
When we played there the greens had been cored and sandy so not too good to put on, what was bad was 5at there was no liners in the holes so they looked tatty and didn’t,to play well. The rest of the course was fine.
We played off the whites at 6800 and it is long So you do need to be a solid hitter. The yellows are A nice length for general play
Bar and clubhouse were nicely presented. Only problem we had was that there was a large loud group of golfers. They demonstrated the drinking and social distancing don’t go together very well. Not a reflection on the club.
The standout hole was the 17th, so many ways to play it
Would definitely play there again
Challenging, well presented course.
All of our fourball have played The Oxfordshire before so knew what to expect. Great value for money. Will return again soon.
Don't go in wet conditions. Would love to go back in summer
I would not recommend this course in wet conditions in Autumn/Winter/Spring. They have very little drainage off of the fairways - but what makes it much worse is that they have no hardstanding paths between green to tee and from tee to fairway, and as such these areas have become amazingly churned up with mud, we felt like we were in the WW1 trenches. We also lost a lot of balls from just plugging in the mud/water pools - then you have no chance to find them.
They must install paths!
Having said that - I would love to come back in summer when the ground is hard and the greens are in better condition. Some of the holes with water are breathtaking.
A super course!
The course is long, which gives a few extra challenges and the chance to hit long irons and woods into the greens.
A lot water and bunkers, but they are well positioned to make the course tough, but a great challenge.
The setting is fairly open, so when there is any wind your really feel it.
The starter & green-keepers were all pleasant.
The tees & greens were brilliant.
Given the torrents of rain the course was very wet, but perfectly playable.
A great day out & with Teeoftimes great value.
Fabulous views a good test
Well designed and laid out championship course with fantastic facilities.
It’s location makes it very susceptible to wind that effects all holes, all part of the challenge this course challenge.
The condition of the course however for the first time at this championship Venu was a little disappointing.
Please play here it will test you.
Absolutely amazing course
Amazing layout to this course. Greens in peak condition. Fairways in peak condition. Bunkers, of which there are plenty, are full of proper sand.
Course has plenty of water to keep you honest. Especially on the 11th which is what i can only describe as the signature hole (to me) with water running the full length of the hole from tee to green.
Really good course, very challenging and a real test but very enjoyable. Will definitely come back again.
I have spent some time debating whether to write this review or not, but eventually decided to go ahead with it.
I got a good deal from this site and was very satisfied with that. I arrived early at the course - as a single player I have found I can occasionally slip in ahead of larger groups. I got a luke warm welcome in the pro shop, no buggies were available at the time and was advised to stick to my booked tee time as there was a lot of four balls ahead of me. OK, not really a problem with the buggy but it was over 35C that day, so took plenty of water, and there was a halfway house.
After a drink in the very nice spike bar, I went to hit a few putts, I could see the last four ball, in buggies, ahead of me was started about 30 minutes ahead of my tee time. The starter then disappeared for 20 minutes and on his return, yet another four ball arrived - on talking to them we had been given the same start time! Fortunately they were very gracious and allowed me to play first.
The course looked stunning from the first tee, but I found, as usual, following societies/large groups, fairway divots, unraked bunkers and lots of pitch marks on the greens. For a Championship course, I was underwhelmed by its condition.
Playing by myself I caught up with the society/group by the 7th and could see that the groups ahead were backing up. As I had a lead on the group behind me I waited on the 8th tee to let the group finish before playing on. On getting to the 9th tee, I could see up the hill to the 10th tee and saw 4 buggies waiting there. With the group ahead of me just moving up to that tee, I knew I was in for a considerable wait on the back 9.
With the heat and the state of the course, I was already contemplating walking in. This decision was confirmed when I completed the 9th and walking up to the 10th tee, saw a senior 2 ball heading to join the queue ahead of me. At my home course, we have a rule, vigorously enforced, that no starts the back 9 if any player is on any part of the 9th hole.
I gave up and walked off - I felt that I would have been wasting my time in speaking out at the pro shop as I was a single visitor at such a course.
I spent a few moments in the wonderful locker room cooling off before leaving, unlikely to return.
We only get to play here maybe once a year but are never disappointed. Always well manicured and a real pleasure. Looking forward to our next visit.
Fantastic course! Great value.
I played Celtic Manor in Feb and this course felt a similar standard for 1/4 the price.
