Will be back

Despite 2 days of rain the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Very good drainage. Loved the course. Plenty of water but playable even for a high handicapper. Will be back.

Picturesque & what can be a challenging course

When the wind got up some of the holes were really challenging. The greens had been treated (tined and sanded) a couple of weeks beforehand, and hence were comparatively slow, so not the norm for this course.
Facilities very good.

A lovely course

As always really interesting course. Was a shame too much sand on the greens, however last time I played course was half underwater so assume struggle with drainage.

Good links style course

A tough challenge, especially in 40mph winds but a thoroughly enjoyable one.

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

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.
