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.

Challenging

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.

Nice course , friendly club shop

Nice, tricky course with lots of trees and some tight drives required. Nice mix of holes, made the course interesting.

Risebridge is getting better all the time. The club is continuing improving the tees, fairways and greens. The clubhouse is welcoming with a well stocked pro shop with helpful staff, and a good bar and restaurant. Easy to get and well worth a visit.

You will be back

I have just enjoyed my third overnight golfing stay at Farthingstone. The course was challenging but fair with very good greens.The club professional was very helpful. Great food, well kept beer and a comfortable room. Fantastic value for money.

Challenging course

Very good golf challenge with every hole a different type of challenge. The fairways could have done with one more cut and with the numerous slopes it seemed easy to slip into the rough which was not the best to get out of. The greens were very difficult with seemingly hidden slopes making lagging puts a challenge.
