What the club says: With origins of golf first played on the original Cowley Marsh site as far back as 1873, it’s safe to say that Oxford Golf Club is part of the fabric of the city. One of the oldest golf clubs in England and most certainly the oldest in Oxfordshire, the original golf club to take precedence here was the Oxford University Golf Club in 1875.

Since then the Oxford City Golf Club and Oxford Ladies Golf Club now consider Oxford Golf Club as their home and have done so since 1899 and 1901 respectively.

Originally designed by highly acclaimed architect and champion golfer James Braid the course was re-designed as it is today by the legendary Harry Colt in 1922. Colt chose to incorporate some of the original holes (including the fifth) laid out by James Braid, which gives this course one of the finest pedigrees possible in golf course design.

One of the many golfers that have walked our fairways include the likes of Viscount Nuffield himself, William Morris, who also took up presidency of the Oxford City Golf Club from 1925 until his death in 1963.

Closer to the present day and a rather well known gentleman by the name of Peter Dawson (former Secretary of the R&A) was also a member here back in his university days.

Formerly known as Southfield Golf Club from as early as the 1920’s, the course changed its name to Oxford Golf Club in 2011 to help clarify the club’s location in Oxford to the outside world. Given this and the length of time the club has been in situ, it remains somewhat a hidden gem, tucked away off Divinity Road and Southfield Road, at the end of the adjoining Hill Top Road.

Many things have changed over the years, but make no mistake Oxford Golf Club takes pride of place as:
One of the oldest, one of the best…this is golf as it should be!

Great Course

Fast greens, but really true. Par 3 12th is the standout hole, it's truly frightening. It's a really fair golf course.

Played On the Perch. If you win hole, you are “on the perch” and can get a point if you win the next hole. Halve the hole and you stay on the Perch. Lose the hole and no one is on the perch again.
Played with Charlie Pickford.
Course was in good condition. Greens were very good pace. Struggled with the greens (used to slow crap greens that don’t break)
