Wychwood Park is generally regarded as one of the premier
inland courses in the north of England. At 7,213 yards from the championship
markers, the course is set up to host professional tournaments and undoubtedly
will challenge the game's best.
This is however a resort course, and as such has an array of
tees, ensuring that all golfers can enjoy a round at Wychwood. The construction
of the golf course utilised the latest in technology, including a computerised
system for irrigation, while the teeing areas and sweeping greens were
constructed in line with USGA principles.
The majority of visitors to Wychwood leave in awe of the
course’s brilliant design. There are no weak holes: each has its own character
and challenge – particularly the par 3s, many of which would look at home on
some of great golf courses in the country. There are numerous obstacles and
hazards to be negotiated en-route here, not least the constant threat of water.
Wychwood Park is an extremely adaptable golf course, making
it very attractive as a golf break destination for players of all standards.
Signature Hole: 17th
– Par 3, 216 yards
There are a number of terrific and unique holes at Wychwood
Park, but the 17th is certainly the most beautiful. Don’t be fooled
by the elevated tee box, which can make the hole appear shorter than it is, as
a full carry of almost 200 yards is needed to clear the water from the back
pegs. This is a gorgeous golf hole that will evoke memories of the 16th
at Augusta National.
