What the club says: World renowned golf course architect Rees Jones has successfully blended 18 strategically contoured holes into the surrounding countryside.

A relative rarity in Britain, the course has been designed in a modern American parkland style, and specifically as a potential venue for international golf tournaments.

Most Helpful Review

Very expensive although that's the last thing on your mind once your playing, a great course and a design to rival all others. The par 5 17th is the feature hole here and is far to tempting not to go for it over the water. The greens are as true as you'll play in this country. If you feel like treating yourself once in a while this is it !! - Jun 14 2011

Good links style course
A tough challenge, especially in 40mph winds but a thoroughly enjoyable one.

Tom - Derby rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 31 2018

My second time playing this course and quite simply its the best course I have ever played. Firstly with the recent heatwave I have played many courses which have been scorched and struggled to maintain the condition (understandably), the Oxfordshire however was in pristine condition.
The variation of holes, including the short risk/reward par 4's, plotting your way between the bunkers and dog legs, the short par 3's with danger everywhere and the rolling contoured landscape either side of the fairways it just makes me smile the whole way round. I would happily pay the £70 a round to play this time and again but the fact you can get a twilight rate of £26 is borderline criminal.
Just go and play it!

nice views and solid course
The greens were perfect, the weather sunny and warm, the fairways were in good condition too. The pace was somewhat slow but expected for a Friday, clubhouse food and staff were nice as were the course staff. Overall a worthwhile course to challenge your positional play with water and bunkers a plenty.

Another Society Day
Have played this course several times over the last 20 years and it's always a challenge with wind coming from different directions and the slopes on the excellent greens. Pity about the prices in the bar!!

Having played the first nine holes the weather changed and it was extremely difficult in the heavy rain.
The rough is high and punishing, the greens were slow even before the rainstorm but it was still a very enjoyable day. Food is far too expensive as is the coffee's.

Slightly mixed feelings
Visited as a group of 4. The course was superb. Very good design with loads of really interesting holes.
The hotel was ok - typical corporate hotel. Rooms fine.
Dinner was poor and breakfast awful. Why "decent" hotels have to serve truly horrible breakfast buffets always beats me

Chris / Reading rated 3 out of 5 - May 13 2018

Good challenge but painful pace
Played on a Sunday afternoon in a 2 ball. The pace was glacial particularly front 9 with waits on tee of 10 - 15 minutes and frankly there were a number of players who have no place on a course particularly one that can be as challenging as this. Having played through a few groups on Front 9 we were able to get round in just over 4hrs.

Layout is interesting particularly the Par 3s and 5s albeit the Yellow tees take some of the hazards more out of play. Course condition was OK - not I imagine what it used to be back in the day. In particular there were lots of divots in fairways indicating heavy use, a number of the bunkers were bare and the greens slower and bumpier than I was expecting. Perhaps this is result of the wet winter. Although It was good that no sense of course itself being damp despite a lot of rain yesterday.

Was still value for money getting a £30 twilight deal on teeofftimes but not sure Id have been happy spending more unless could guarantee a better pace of play.

Great course, but boy its windy
This course was better than I had expected, the greens were excellent for MArch and the course had some really interesting holes. The problem is its always very windy and it does make it all feel a bit tiring. Plus the food afterwards was very average

Very nice
This is a very nice cource with some nice risk / reward holes.
Tee's, fairways and greens all in great condition considering the recent weather. Only issue, area's between tees/fairways/greens was very soggy and muddy, golf trolly had mud for wheels by the end of the round. Lovely course though, would love to play it again in the summer

The Oxfordshire is a really top venue for a game of golf. The course was a bit soggy but what can you expect for this time of year. Greens on the whole were excellent although a few had been slitted which affected the speed and direction in comparison to the others.

Great Course pity about the weather
This was our annual society end of season round with xmas lunch. As we went to the 1st team we were treated to a short blizzard which quickly passed and the round completed in glorious sunshine, althoung temperatures were very low throughout the day. There were some parts of the course that were slightly waterlogged and some of the greens had been worked on and putts were take off line by grooves in the surface. But for the time of year and recent weather the course played well although long due to a very strong westerly wind. Hopefully weather will be warmer when we return in June 18.
