What the club says: The course is fairly flat, apart from the second and third holes, and therefore offers a very comfortable round for players of all ages. Members tend to play 2 ball games and are especially keen on foursomes, allowing just three hours (or less) for a game. Speed of play is important to Huntercombe and slow play is actively discouraged. The modern trend for four hour rounds is seen as an anathema to the Members of Huntercombe.

Nice course quite forgiving, will try again when the weather is not so bad. Very flat and easy to follow.

Beaut

Having trekked round most of the courses in Oxfordshire, it was time to play this hidden gem. Paid £30 for a summer twilight round, very good value. Pro shop very friendly, every member I met on the course super friendly as well. Easy to navigate, although I nearly got lost between 5 & 6.

Like most courses at the moment, fairways need some rain, but the greens were in perfect condition, and as others have said, absolutely treacherous if you end up in the wrong place.

Long enough to be a challenge, tight enough to be a challenge, highly recommended.

Hidden Gem

Huntercombe, I don't think, is not a name that I remember croping up in a lot of lists of great courses, which is a shame because its an absolute delight. There are lots of excellent tree lined fairways, and greens that are as smooth as you could hope for. It's not without its quirks, with tiers on some greens that wouldn't look out of place on a rollar coaster.

I don't remember too many simple holes, but instead there were plenty with mounds and bush filled craters just waiting to claim an errant shot. I guess they're there to make up for the limited number of bunkers. The fairways generally aren't the widest you'll ever play, but they're not the tightest either. For the added views I'd probably pick holes 1 & 2 as my favourites, but there are a number of others that would run them close.

Is there anything that could be classed as a disappointment? The noise from the roads means you never quite get that away-from-it-all feel, and the flag colours don't really conform to the norm (FYI, blue flag front, red flag middle, and yellow flag back). Hey, the club is over 100 years old and it can do what it wants, and I should have just read the back of the card earlier. So, nothing to really stop you from playing here.

I played here for £30 for a January twilight time, which I think it certainly decent value. You won't see the course at its best, but you will see a course that's better at coping with winter than most other courses in the area. I didn't get to see inside the clubhouse, so I can't really comment on that.

There's a Red Kite on the club's merchandise, and I did get to see one or two flying above the course, so that was a bonus.

Would I recommend the course or go back? Yes to both!

*** Update - I just looked it up and Huntercombe featured in Golf World's top 100 courses in England ***

Amazing greens

Lucky to play this members only club with a society. Not a long course but the greens are so undulating if you're in the wrong spot a 4 putt or worse is on the cards.

A great inland links, lovely woodland, little sand, rather grass "bunkers" prevail.
Great food and beer to boot.

Probably one of the best kept courses in the area. Very good for improving course management, you have to have a lot of different shots in the locker to play under your handicap. Greens are brilliant and run true. Would definitely reccomend.

Played here as part of a Society and loved it. Fantastic undulating greens and a beautiful heathland course.

Beware, the greens are very difficult to read

A really lovely course. I have been fortunate enough to visit several times. It is rather old-fashioned, and not that long, but it is still a good test. It is always in immaculate condition, with really good, hard to read, greens.

I have always found the clubhouse to be very friendly, although I am about the same advanced age as most of the members!

Classic, exceptionally old school course. Always immaculately kept; although short by modern standards it is tight and strategic all the way round. Greens are perfect and tough to read. Significantly trickier than it looks on the card, and always an absolute pleasure to play...
