Highly Recommended 2020

What the club says: Fairways and greens encourage golfers to employ their 'Course Management' skills. The course provides a challenge to match the demands of open competition, company days, golf societies or group organisers.

The 3rd hole is undoubtedly the feature hole and we recommend a look at the Panoramic views of Oxford city and the surrounding area.

Lovely views, challenging golf

The course is in the best condition it's been for a while. Fairways are clear and well-cut. A lot of work has been done on the greens and they are in great condition. There's some quite challenging rough so make sure you either steer clear of it or bring plenty of spare balls. Some work has been done on the bunkers and they're probably about as good as they're going to be without major investment. The course remans one of the most scenic in the area and the views make it well worth the challenge. It's a friendly, un-stuffy club which welcomes everyone and will provide welcome refreshment before and/or after yoir round.

excellent test of your golfing abilities

Hinksey Heights is an unstuffy club that has needed investment in the past but I would now say that it is very good condition with some great holes to challenge you. It's great value compared to other local courses and is definitely worth a visit, money is being spent on the course and the facilities and is improving year on year under new management. Come and see for yourself if you have not been out on the course for many years. The points membership is excellent value for money and allows to book members tees times, enter their comps and have discounted food and drink in the clubhouse.

Don't Bother

This was a massive disappointment.
Located high up adjacent to the A34 at Hinksey/Botley, the views of the spires of Oxford are superb.
However, it otherwise fails to deliver.
The course is not well-maintained. There are bunkers that have been GUR for two years or more. Many greens are in poor shape. Tee-boxes, even after the extended lock-down and zero use, are unavailable and mats are in use on several.
No course Marshalls, so plenty of young lads in non-golf clothing, including several who were two or more players using one set of clubs.
Bins overflowing at several points.
Clubhouse like an old agricultural building/shed, serving poor machine coffee.
All felt extremely half-hearted & impoverished, and reeked of under-investment.
I shall not be going back until a major amount of money & effort has gone into improving it.
This club, given it's location, and topography could be amongst the finest in Oxfordshire, but at the moment it is definitely in the bottom tenth percentile.
My advice is don't visit.
And ?32 for a buggy is absolutely extortionate.

This is more of a trolling from an anonymous competitor (?) than a review, so beware! For any doubters, refer to other reviews and read the following. A couple of weeks before the date of this review we had recently hollow tined and top-dressed the greens, this is an important part of keeping the greens free of disease and well-drained as most experienced golfers know - hence everyone normally gets that. They were actually playing quite fast throughout April and have continued to improve. The course has been undergoing continual investment and improvement over the past few years, including the redevelopment of some of the tees which are being enlarged due to the increased number of golfers. Similarly, we are installing better drainage in the bunkers to ensure they remain dry and playable in the long-term. It is tempting to just leave them now it is dry, but October will be here before we know it. We have a relaxed dress code and are proud of this policy. The clubhouse is a converted milking shed and whilst not grand is very comfortable and welcoming. We also don't charge £32 for a buggy, so there appears to be a fair bit of misdirection in the reviewers comments! David Brimble, Director

Not great - but cheap at twighlight

Booked a twilight tee time which was very well priced. Really nice people working there. No balls were available for the range when we arrived which was disappointing.

Lots of the tees were on fairways not on tee boxes and they were rock hard and sandy with lots of deep divots which had not been replaced. Greens were surprisingly slow and wet considering the weather (30 degrees in August) and fairways were mixed, some great lush green and trimmed some rock hard dying grass and grass cuttings left out

Overall - cheap and cheerful golf with a nice layout of holes and some great views and really welcoming staff with cold beer on tap. A good one to go round with some beginners wanting a quick round
