Frilford Heath Golf Club

Frilford Heath Golf Club

Frilford Heath is located to the South of Oxford on 500 acres of glorious undulating Heathland and is one of the best venues in the south of England; rarely can a club offer three championship golf courses (Red, Green and Blue) that allow the opportunity to revel in their classical or modern challenge!

One review of “Frilford Heath Golf Club”

    Frilford Heath Golf Club is one of the few Golf Clubs in Southern England to boast three separate 18 hole courses, each with its own character. It is located just off the A34 South of Oxford making it easily accessible whilst driving from any direction and when you get there it is always well worth the journey.

    My friends and I played the Green Course: Although the shortest of the courses on offer from Frilford, still requires you to plot your way round to ensure a good score. After the enormous amount of rain we have had this Winter you would expect a lot of water and mud, but thanks to the sandy subsoil the course was dry and very playable.

    The fairways and greens were immaculate as they always are. The outward nine is the easier and starts with the only par five, but the 7th is a long par four which is quite rightly stroke index 1! Coming home there are four particularly tough par fours, the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th which really gives the course some teeth! They are followed by a long par three and to end with a tricky short par four.

    After the game we all had a refreshing shower where towels are always supplied and then went to the bar. There are a great range of both soft and alcoholic drinks available. We were just in time to catch the last of The Green Thai Chicken Curry which went down superbly with a pint of IPA! The food in my experience is without equal in Oxfordshire Golf Clubs, and on the many occasions I have been here I have never had a bad meal.

    The Golf Club is hugely popular with Societies and host meetings with up to 200 players. It also caters for a number of Local, National and International Tournaments, which is well beyond the capabilities of the majority of Golf Clubs.

    Due to there being three courses available you do not have to book a tee time, however the club will book a tee time if you take a group. The Courses are divided between accepting two, three and fourball games on a rotational basis. It is a very friendly club and a guest or new member would not have a problem linking up with different groups for a game.

    As you would expect Frilford has a well stocked Golf Shop offering a large array of equipment and accessories for sale or hire. Golf lessons are available from Derek Craik, the Head Teaching professional. In the winter the club hope to open a new 6 hole par 3 course for its members and their guests – so Frilford will have 60 holes of golf that you can play!

    For Membership enquiries please contact the Executive Chairman, Alistair Booth or the General Manager both of whom I have always found very approachable and keen to help prospective Members.
