Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: Farthingstone Hotel & Golf Course is enfolded deep in the most beautiful countryside in England. Both accomplished and less experienced golfers will relish the pleasures of a mature and satisfying course that abounds in challenging features. Woodland, water, naturally sweeping fairways and carefully crafted greens make for a golfing experience to remember. Tranquil and secluded, but just a few miles from both the M1 and M40. Major towns within easy reach are Milton Keynes, Banbury, Oxford, Rugby and Northampton.

Friendly

We spend a few days a year here and really like the people very welcoming and friendly . The fairways are always in great condition . The greens are improving and we know they were poor but are coming back after work being done

Very disappointing

A very disappointing visit today having played a few years ago this course sadly has been let down badly by staff neglect. The clubhouse, shop and staff were all friendly enough but where it matters i.e. on the course it was in a very poor state presented to play. No maintenance on the trees and shrubs made it very tight and almost blind in places to play your ball. The course obviously need rain but the greens were some of the worse played for many a year by our society.

Good price for the course

?25 for a round is a good price for a round in this area, greens aren?t great but playable. Extremely wet week before we played so course was understandable sodden in places.

Total Rubbish

Greens in terrible condition. Don't waste your money. I was really looking forward to getting back to golf after the lockdown. Farthingstone was the only local club that had tee time, and I can see why. I have no idea what the green staff were doing over the break but it was nothing to do with the course. Fairways needed cutting but the greens are truly terrible. They had been cored (fair enough it needs doing) but the amount of sand over the top was a joke, way too much and it was in mounds and not spread out properly. Maybe this was to try and cover up the mountain like surface they had. You could not take putting seriously on them. They even had cutting left on them!! The course is a nice layout, hilly but with a good mixture of holes. Just a massive shame no one looks after it. If you just want to hit balls on a course then its ok but if you want to 'play golf' its best avoided, which is a shame.

Lovely short but challenging course that makes you think about your shots . The course was very wet when we played and it suffered as a whole but can see how good condition but was a few weeks earlier

Great track in countryside

Hidden in countryside down long winding lane, this is a parkland course with varied holes some hilly, few doglegs and every hole unique. Played in four all and throughly enjoyed challenge of it, greens needed some attention though have had lot of summer use and rains of late, worth a visit

I was a member here when young and the course has matured well over the last 2 years. The layout is good and there are some interesting holes that can be challenging. Due to its location, it feels very quiet and as though you have the course to yourself which is good.

The greens are mentioned in other reviews are patchy though this didn't affect my enjoyment and I have seen much worse. The course generally though was in good condition.

Overall an enjoyable round, very nice setting for a summer evening and good value for money.
