A great find.

Visited Hinksey today for the first time. What a great course, a real gem. Great mixture of long & wide, short & narrow, holes, interesting doglegs and undulating terrain. Quite a long walk all in all, but the higher holes are rewarded with stunning views over Oxford. It was bright and fairly sunny today, with a fair breeze. I imagine it will feel very exposed in the colder, winter months. Thoroughly enjoyed it, challenging golf, with the holes well guarded by bunkers and trees, and quite tricky (though very well-maintained) greens. One thing of note today was that a heck of a lot of bunkers are marked "Ground Under Repair", and a drop zone marked - Not sure if this is a long term problem, but some bunkers looked a bit like demolition sites. Overall, highly recommended, will definitely return.

The course was really nice, and the weather was glorious. Greens were in good shape. The rough could be longer

Whether you have played this course or not, it's worth playing.

This course is maturing well and continues to improve. If you have not played before, this is an links style course, that is rarely without breeze. No two holes are the same and the contours of land have used to great effect. The drainage improvements have helped the fairways, but the bunkers are still in need of work.
Assuming a clear day the views of Oxford, its spires and surrounding countryside will not disappoint.
Whether or not you have played this course before, it's definitely worth a visit. A good test of golf whatever your handicap.

Much improved, great views

A lot of work has been done to improve the course. Fairways are good, greens true, rough has been cleared and the battle against the elements and burrowing creatures is being won bit by bit, thanks to sterling work by the green-keepers. Bunkers are still work in progress but overall, the course has improved greatly over the past few weeks. It offers enjoyable golf. The view from the 18th tee provides one of the most spectacular panoramic vistas, certainly in Oxfordshire, and probably in the whole of the UK. Come and try it!

My partner and I had the pleasure of playing this course a few times whilst living in Oxford. The course had some testing holes, particularly the third where you have to place the ball in the right spot for a chance of a second shot onto the elevated green. A lot of work appears to be going on on the course which will make this a course to rival some of the best in the area. Together with a good course, the members are very friendly and we always felt very welcome here.We will definitely return!!

Really Improved Course

I was impressed by the quality of the fairways and greens. Having visited several years back the improvement is clear. The views are consistently excellent and the course layout interesting and a good challenge. There was a friendly welcome in the charming old clubhouse and, while I did not stop for food or drink this time, I certainly will on the next visit as it all looked very tempting. Will be back soon!

Friendly staff, friendly members and a lovely course. A very hilly course though so if you're not fit......take a buggy!
The greens had been spiked and this caused a bobbly surface, making putting a bigger challenge than normal.
Still, enjoyed playing with panoramic views of Oxford and would return.

Challenging course due to the hilly terrain, position of out-of-bounds and rough, and prevailing winds. Fairways and greens are in very good condition. Many bunkers and very little water.

Hinksey got bad reviews at first but now (2014) it is getting better and better
The greens have been treated well and lots of other improvements have been made
It still has things that could be better but it is a very good course for the money

You can tell a lot of work has been done over the last year or so, greens run true and fast now, lovely to putt on. Excellent test of golf for all standards with great views over Oxford and a warm welcome awaits you once you have finished your round in the 19th Hole. Great course and set up for golf society's, good value for money on and off the course. Highly recommend.

What a transformation!!! - The amount of work that has obviously been applied since I last played here 18 months ago is truly showing dividends and the golfers - visitors or members are reaping the rewards. A challenging yet forgiving course for all standards now reflecting the stunning views over Oxford.

Course is fantastic and chatting to the head greenskeeper so many projects lined up for the winter. thoroughly impressed with the clubs welcome, desire to share their enthusiasm of the improvements and I would encourage anybody who hasn't played there for a while to go and see what a change has been made. ill definitely return and take others with me

Thank you for a great day
