The Oxfordshire Golf Club

Course Information

Par 72
Designed by Rees Jones
Opened for play 1993
Previously hosted 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.

Reception and management staff are very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were good although few of the rooms have a view of the golf course which is disappointing. The Sports Bar downstairs is disappointing as the range/quality of food is variable and the place lacks any views of the course and therefore any atmosphere. The bar upstairs has panoramic views especially from the large terraces and has a nice ambiance albeit the price of £13.50 for G&T is far too expensive for thirsty golfers!! The evening meals were served in the private dining rooms where the food and the service is excellent - wine is a bit OTT price wise but as the package for 2 nights/3 rounds of golf is cheap they have to make their money somewhere!

Charlie The golf was as expected , however the hotel staff, organisation was somewhat lacking, we had two rooms booked, names and cards against rooms all incorrect so all weekend nothing but hassle trying to sign against rooms , refusals to get food or drinks booked against rooms , 1 hour to get food in the spike bar, which was cold when we eventually got, restaurant at night was terrible, only people in the restaurant and the food was cold, one plate inedible , bar closed upstairs for a wedding, only bar available was spike bar, Bar man was lazy and uncooperative , it could be such a good experience, unfortunately not mine , especially when all paid up front. Not a place to re visit . Hope the feedback is helpful Les young

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.

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.

The Oxfordshire Golf Club

The course is one of the best in the SE and reminds me of the Faldo designed Chart Hills with many undulating mounds bordering the fairways and a large number of bunkers. The signature 8th offers a challenging drive and approach shot with a huge lake running along the right side of the fairway and in front of the green - ditto the challenging par 5 17th!!Despite the water our group ranging from handicaps 9-39 enjoyed the experience as the course offers sensible "bail-out" routes if you can't carry the water. Inevitably work was being done to the greens and fairways - some of which were patchy but every course has suffered after the drought of 2018!

Love the challenge of the golf course. The fairways were in good condition with plenty of grass, and watered. Greens deceptive, but good and slower than we are used to playing. Speed of play an issue, as we were are 2 ball following a society which took 4 and 3/4 hours. The second day was better as we played earlier. Starter and professional staff very helpful. Love the course.
