Unfulfilled potential

Fantastic location high up on the hill at Hinksey with superb views over Oxford and its dreaming spires.
For location, and course topography this could be one of Oxfordshire?s best.
But...
It seems to be suffering from a lack of direction and clearly, investment.
I first played here about three years ago. At that time many of the bunkers were GUR. I?ve played here three or four times since, and nothing has changed.
The tee boxes are very variable - some are passable, others have been dug out and even after a year of lockdown and tons of time for ground work, are on temporary tees &/or tee mats.
At ?24 visitor green fee it is not the most expensive course in the county, but it seems overpriced.
Overflowing bins, no course marshalls, an apparently very lax dress code (t-shirts/football shirts and cargo shorts) and players sharing one set of clubs between two - the whole picture is of a club down on its uppers, and willing to let anyone play as long as they pay the green fee.
Buggies - ?32 each - I?ve had cheaper buggies at premium courses.
Fairways - average. Plenty of weeds about. Greens - very sluggish, but had been very recently hollow-tined.
Would I return?
Without substantial investment in the bunkers, tee-boxes, and course standards it would be a resounding no.
I think this place has the potential to be a great venue, but it feels a bit ?fish & chip?. From the converted agricultural shed/outbuilding as clubhouse, the machine coffee in a plastic cup at ?1:80, to the poor tee-boxes, dreadful bunkers, and poor standards of dress etc I think ?24 is way overpriced.

Defo worth a visit

Really enjoyed the course although it’s a bit muddy at present. A good challenge with some lovely sculptured holes.

Disappointing

Decent layout, let down by old holes on many greens not being filled in.
No tee marker identification to show what tee you are on and also few signs to say how to find next tee!

A real gem in beautiful countryside

First golf after lockdown and this was the perfect course to play. Greens were in great condition given the dry weather and it was a really enjoyable course with interesting holes that contrasted in terms of challenges. Plenty of investment going on in terms of hotel and club house on site... I do hope that doesn?t detract from this lovely course. Some of the holes have changed as a result so care in believing the yardage on your tech! I will definitely be back.

Superb again

I played in June & rated it as superb & it's still superb. The layout is superb, the condition is superb & the hotel is superb.
The greens are exceptional for the time of year & the bunkers are the best I've seen in quite a while.
It's difficult to pick out stand out holes, but I particularly liked the 11th with it's long down hill drive that needs to be right of the fairway to give you a chance of reaching the green.
To top it off the hotel is excellent, lovely rooms & great food.
All in all, the Cotswold Hotel is well worth a visit.
Did I mention this place was superb again?

Society Day

Very much a course that will be on my 2020 Society Calendar after this years event. Tough, yet forgiving, long yet reachable, and not a boring hole on the course. Love the 10th hole, and also hate the 10th hole green, it’s so damn tough! Only down fall is the long walk to the driving range from the club house.
