Highly Recommended 2019

What the club says: Located on the edge of the Cotswolds and only 15 minutes drive from the Oxford Hotel, this 6,500 yard lakeland course was designed by the internationally renowned architect, Simon Gidman. Hazards include no less than five lakes, 67 bunkers as well as natural hedgerows, gorse, tall grass and trees. Each hole poses a different challenge and a number stand out including the 187 yard 8th - a par 3 over water with trees encroaching to the left of the green - a shot that needs accuracy and distance control.

We have played the course many times and think it is excellent in every way but because of very wet conditions and the Coronavirus situation we did use all of the facilities. The club had made some changes on the course re the virus - no rakes, ball washing facility taped up so as not to use and the holes were inverted so that putts would not drop and stayed within easy access - all appreciated. Staff as usual great but although the greens were excellent even though they had been sanded, lots of the course was very wet and probably should not have been open. Because of this I think the price should have been lowered. Will always return and play again as it is a great course

Booked the round via Teetimes/Golf Now but the course had not received any notification of it. Fortunately there was space to go out as per our required time and the staff in the clubhouse were very helpful and said they would have words. Course looking really good, greens immaculate, some bare patches on the left and right of the fairway leaving a few awkward lies on occasions. Clubhouse busy but the staff were really friendly and a good breakfast finished off the day.

Country Club Golf Course

Woodland course, with several water hazard holes. Challenging & enjoyable. As it's a leisure/country club first & foremost, the golf club side has a sterile feel to it. Good mixture of Par 3s, 4s & 5s. One downside is that there is a poultry farm very close by, and the stink is sometimes quite overpowering, especially when wet, and the wind is blowing towards you!..

Lovely Course

For a course that has 'lakes' in the name, I maybe expected to see more water. It is still a nice course though. It's fairly flat, so very easy walking. There are a couple of holes where they could certainly provide a sign to get you to the next tee the (the 9th and 17th, I think).

The fairways mostly seem fairly wide from the tee, but the 2nd cut creeps in a lot closer to the middle than you may think. Having played it only the once I didn't remember too many of the holes, but the par 3 8th (water from tee to green) and the par 4 18th (water and clubhouse left of the green) appeared to be the nicest looking. The whole course will test you though.

The course is certainly a pleasure to play, without ever really being spectacular. The tees and greens are in good condition, there are nice practice facilities to get you warmed up, and the clubhouse (part of the hotel) seemed nice enough too.

Very nice course

Witney Laked has certainly grown into itself since I played here first in the 90s, a very good course with varied holes and challenges. We didn?t stay after the round due to timings.

Good holes

Good course layout with some good holes. Greens excellent. Fairways poor. In the summer would imagine will be bare. Requires investment in sorting out the fairways. If they do be a very good course.

Considering the amount of rain we had for the previous 4 days before our round, I was not expecting too much from the course but was pleasantly surprised.
No lying water on the fairways or greens, some in a few bunkers but not an issue. Greens were immaculate and quite fast, difficult to read.
Clubhouse always friendly with a good breakfast even mid afternoon.
Would always recommend the course.

Cotswold Gem

A lovely course, with an excellent sports bar & restaurant.
Driving range is light & airy, and it's all very friendly.
Some challenging holes, notably the par 3 8th over an interesting water hazard, the long par 3 12th, and the par 4 16th, with the green surrounded by bunkers & ditches. Some wide forgiving fairways, and some interesting dog-legs, with fairly tight pinch points along the way.
The 18th back into the clubhouse is scenic, and has a challenging water hazard to negotiate to get onto the green.
A very enjoyable round of golf, albeit during the summer drought, so in part looked quite brown and arid, but it has to be said that the tee-off areas, and the greens were in spanking condition.
?25 for 18 holes for the visitor (summer 2018).
Recommended.

A lovely course

A well cared for course with good tee boxes, fairways and greens. Little rough but a lot of trees to catch the wayward shot. Some water hazards and a decent variety of holes. well worth a visit.

Good course with nice shaped holes

Some good holes here of reasonable length, proper par 4?s with a drive and long iron into the green. Nice and tight now trees are growing and greens are ok. Only minor point is it is bit boggy in places but we have had a lot or rain
