The course is set in the heart of the chiltern hills and incorporates the natural landscapes with 4 beautiful man made lakes to create an exciting challenge for a whole range of golfing ability. The course is often regarded as an inland links due to the lack of trees the wind can really blow making avoid some of 135 bunkers rather hard. The beautiful course has played host to the Benson and Hedges Golf Tournament in previous years and some of the games best players have won here such as Colin Montgomerie, Darren Clarke and Bernhard Langer. So if you want a chance to walk where pros have walked on one of the best courses in England book now with Your Golf Travel.

    STATS

    Par: 72

    Designed by: Rees Jones

    Open for play: 1993

    Previously hosted tournaments: Benson & Hedges International Open, Andersen Consulting World Championships, Ladies English Open

    TEES

    Blue: 7,192 yards, SSS 75

    White: 6,826 yards, SSS 74

    Yellow: 6,315 yards, SSS 71

    Red: 5,600 yards, SSS 71

    Signature hole: 17th hole, Par 5 - 588 yards from the white tees.

    A straight drive is required on this nerve-racking par-5, 17th hole to avoid the bunker on the right and the water to the left. The lake runs along the entire left edge of the fairway, with the green situated in the distance across the water. The safe but longer option is to play around the lake, while the longer hitters can have a crack at either a second fairway or the green itself in two.

    Jones vision for the Oxfordshire is a modern parkland course in from the American mould, and the incredible course in its short existence has already hosted the Anderson World Matchplay, the English Ladies Open and the Benson & Hedges International. Some of the professional game’s most prominent names have graced the course, which remains one of England’s best championship tests.

    From the tournament tees The Oxfordshire reaches 7,187 yards, which is more than enough for most golfing mortals, and throughout the layout are dotted some majestic holes. None is more famous than the 17th; this incredible par 5 has been named in Golf Magazine’s top 500 holes in the world, and is typical of the golfing adventure created by Jones.

    Along with The Grove, The Oxfordshire is at the forefront of modern English championship golf design, with terrific facilities that make it ideal for hosting high profile corporate golf events as well as being the ultimate stop on a golf tour around Oxford.

    Accommodation

    The Oxfordshire Golf, Hotel and Spa is comprised of 50 luxurious and comfortable rooms which act as the perfect place to rest up before and after your round. There are two fantastic room options to choose from that both cater to your every need. Each of the 46 executive rooms come equipped with a whole host of modern amenities such as a TV, wifi, climate control and private balcony which allows you to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings from the comfort of your room. The hotel also 4 Penthouse Suites which are incredibly spacious with a separate lounge and bedroom area, 2 TVs, double furnishing in the bathroom and a large private balcony. The rooms are a fantastic place to stay in between rounds as the hotel rooms are just a chip and put away from all the essential facilities.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving a number of signature dishes which are beautifully complimented by a number of wines and beers from the extensive drink list.

    Golfer reviews

    Things could not have gone better...

    We booked this venue on the recommendation of Your Golf Travel some 2 months ago and it was only week a prior to going that I looked up reviews on Trip Advisor. I was slightly concerned after reading some of the reviews.

    However from the moment we arrived, things could not have gone better.

    The 2 receptionists (Angie and Anne) were an absolute delight, both were extremely cheerful and so willing to help and advise. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Because some the reviews were about slow play on the golf course (rounds lasting up to 5 ½ hours) we asked for our original table booking for the evening to put back an hour due to our concern of having to rush to shower and change for dinner. Angie said no trouble and sorted it out on the spot.  

    Most probably the best reception that we have ever received. (Well done you 2 ladies)

    We arrived at about 12.00 noon and as our rooms were not available we went to the spike bar to have a drink and a snack before playing golf at 13.40 pm. Again we received excellent service from friendly staff members. Some reviews claim the drinks were expensive, and while they are not cheap, they compare with the average hotel prices.

    The golf course overall was in excellent condition considering the extremely heavy rain that had fallen 2 days previously. Unfortunately some of the bunkers still had water laying in them but that;s understandable.

    The fairways and greens were in absolutely perfect condition and the course features a good selection of testing holes. A typical American style layout with plenty of water and lots and lots of bunkers; I would suggest a few too many.

    There was quite a lot of walking from greens to tees which might add to the time to play, but our 4 ball still managed to complete our round in 4 hours 30 mins. My wife was wearing a fitsbits which recorded the distance walked on this round and it recorded 7.32 miles. We did have a few waits on some the holes due groups in front. On our second round the following morning we manage a 4 hour 20min. Overall considering it was a new course to us the time to play seemed very reasonable.

    We booked a table in the main restaurant where we had a restricted menu included in our package, but for an extra £7.50 per person we could have full ala carte choice. This is something that we took advantage of and recommend to others.

    We were served by a delightful young lady by the name of Macarena and she was most helpful and very attentive.

    The selection on the main menu was extremely varied and we really enjoyed our choices. I did have a slight hic-cup in that my medium rare rib eye steak when served was cold, but as soon as I raised the issue the manager quickly responded by replacing with a freshly cooked  medium rare rib eye, and apologised and additionally deducted our £7.50 surcharges from our bill. Top service.

    There was good selection of wine from which we selected both white and red wine and both were very good.

    What with the excellent service from Macarena and the prompt attention from Florin, plus of course the great food and wine; our dinner perfectly ended a truly enjoyable day.

    Overall our stay at The Oxfordshire really was a most enjoyable experience and one that we will definitely remember, as well as recommend to all of our golfing friends.

    The golf course at The Oxfordshire was in very good condition...

    The golf course at The Oxfordshire was in very good condition, with generous width fairways all with a good covering of grass and it’s an easy enough course to walk too. The greens held the ball and were a very good pace to put on, with the ball rolling out nicely.

    The hotel and clubhouse were friendly with efficient staff who knew what they were doing and always asked if all was ok.

    The price of the drinks was not too bad and typical of hotel prices. There was a good selection of wines available that covered all price ranges.

    The one thing that was not good was the limited choice of the food available on the set menu, with only two starters, two main course and two deserts. On the plus side what was supplied to eat however was very good.

    My overall verdict is 8 out of 10. 

    The response to my enquiry for price and availability for this trip from Yourgolftravel was exceptional. All was done within an hour from our first call to the actual booking confirmation being sent through. I could not have asked for more.

    In immaculate condition and a real test of golf...

    We had a great weekend staying at The Oxfordshire. The weather was amazing and the accommodation and service at the hotel could not have been better.

    Everyone loved the course  at The Oxfordshire too. It was in immaculate condition and a real test of golf.


    A dream from start to finish...

    Many thanks go to YGT once again for organising a fantastic golf break at such short notice; it was a birthday treat that was a dream from start to finish.

    The hotel is peaceful, clean and serves excellent food. The members of staff, particularly in the restaurant, really look after each guest and there’s a very good choice of food for dinner and breakfast.

    The guestrooms are spacious and comfy, and each room has its own balcony, which as a smoker is superb.

    The golf though is something else. There are bunkers and dunes everywhere, as well as huge lakes, so you really must apply course management and not be tempted to "go for" too many shots.

    The views are stunning while you play too. No matter your score at the end of the round, the experience of the course is a dream and we’ll definitely be returning soon.

    Everything we wanted from a golf break and more...

    Thank you for recommending The Oxfordshire as it was everything we wanted from a golf break and more. 

    This is a first class venue with a superb golf course, an excellent hotel and attentive and friendly staff and we will definitely return!

    If I was to make any suggestion to the hotel to improve the package it would be to provide a slightly broader range of dinner options. I don’t think offering 3 to 4 options would overly complicate things. Saying that; the food itself was excellent.

    By far the best course that we have been on thus far...

    What a great golf break we had at The Oxfordshire Golf Club. By far the best course that we have been on thus far.

    Upon arrival the hotel was a great sight, very new and well designed in a great layout in a picturesque landscape. Inside the hotel was just as lush and beautiful as the outside, great front desk staff and the bars and restaurants were very welcoming and comfortable. Drinks were very reasonably priced and the food was top quality with a great dining atmosphere.

    As for the golf, well let me tell you what an awesome experience it was. Starting at the pro shop which was very accessible and easy to find and the change rooms which were very high quality. There were two different putting greens that were very well maintained. Stepping up to the first tee was perfect, a very beautiful landscape and a very tempting hole to go at it. From there the course just continued to get better. There were some very challenging holes that made you think about your club choice as well as some long holes and some good scoring holes. It was not cluttered with too many trees and overly challenging rough, but did have a mass abundance of large bunkers which were a pleasant challenge.

    Holes 8 and 17 were as fun to play as all the articles say they are. All in all a superb weekend away golfing at a great place. We will be going back again and will certainly use Your Golf Travel once more!

    I would recommend this course to anyone...

    The Golf Course at The Oxfordshire Golf Club was tough, yet forgiving. Having a course planner is a must - and they had none in stock - the only negative comment we had of the whole stay there. The condition of the course in general was great and the greens were superb. There is also a great Halfway Hut. I would recommend this course to anyone - it has a great variety of hole and hazard.

    The Clubhouse was pleasant and the staff were all very attentive and welcoming. It was very quiet in the hotel, so we got good service.

    The hotel offered a great Value for money deal. The quality of food was excellent as was the quality of hotel room.

    My overall verdict is nine out of ten - probably quite costly when not part of a deal. However, we've already spoken to others about planning a return trip at some time.

    Your Golf Travel gave brilliant service, their speed of Response and efficiency was all very good.

    The best value for money golf break we have ever been on...

    Having just spent 3 days at the Oxfordshire with a party of 7, I have to say it was a fantastic venue for a golf break. We have been on golf holidays all over Europe and this has to be the best value for money golf break we have ever been on. The condition of the golf course was outstanding, the best greens I have ever been on and the general ambience of the whole set up was first class. This is a truly special place to play golf.

    We stayed on a package that included dinner at the new hotel and this was way above expectation. The food was excellent and along with the service from the staff, the entire evening was great. The rooms were of high standard and I can even recommend Thame as market town with great pubs...this is no more than 5 minutes away in the taxi which was arranged for us by the hotel.

    To put into perspective how good this golf break was; this was the first time in 15 years that we have been on a golf break that didn’t generate any complaints! Every single member of the groups was happy and have sent their thanks to YGT!
