Course Tour

1st hole: An inviting, open par 4 over a gentle sloping fairway with poplar trees to the right and a back-to-front and left-right sloping green.

2nd hole: A dogleg left par 4 that plays slightly uphill and features three bunkers around the green.

3rd hole: The course’s Stroke Index 1 and one of its outstanding holes. An elevated tee and drive downhill towards a brook 290 yards away; then a steep slope up to the green marks one of the most exciting holes at OGC.

4th hole: A short par 3 near the highest point of the course offering stunning views back over Oxford's ‘dreaming spires’ and its historical University buildings beyond.  

5th hole: A links-style par 4 with fantastic undulations on the fairways ending at a two-tiered green.

6th hole: Another links-style par 4 but at 496 yards it allows for great drives and fairway woods.

7th hole: A dramatically elevated tee provides the course’s signature hole, with resplendent views of over three different fairways, mature willow and poplar trees and across to Oxford. A gorgeous, picturesque and exciting hole.

8th hole: A par 3, slightly uphill, that plays just a bit longer than some think and clubbing up one is often recommended.

9th hole: A long par 5 leading up back to the clubhouse and ending with a subtly sloped green. 

10th hole: Another long, fairly flat par 5 at 540 yards with a wide approach area and two greenside bunkers. The large oval green is easy to hit but sits surrounded by deep hedges along the left and woods behind.  

11th hole: The start of what members call Amen Corner, where matches are often won and lost, this par 4 requests a firm drive down a pristine fairway, leaving players with a clear line to the downhill green nestled beyond a brook. Another outstanding hole, breath-taking as you watch your second shot land on the green. It is the course at its finest.

12th hole: The 208-yard par 3 is documented as being one of Henry Longhurst's favourites. "One of the best par-3 holes in the country." It requires a well-executed tee shot.

13th hole: A long carry over the Lye Valley Nature Reserve that is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the hole is a fader’s dream, and ends with a huge green.

14th hole: A short but deceptive par 4 where errant tee shots will cost you so consider taking an iron from the tee. 

15th hole: A long par 3, narrow and deeply wooded, it plays straight but ends with a punch-bowl green that brings out great putts.

16th hole: At Stroke Index 3 this par 4 can be somewhat unforgiving to wayward slices, but opens up down the fairway offering comfortable approach areas and easy shots onto the elevated green.

17th hole: A dramatic par 3 set back over a brook, shrubs and short trees, completed with a challenging three-tiered green.

18th hole: A 454-yard par 5 protected by three lakes front, side and back. This is a great risk-reward hole for anyone long and brave enough off the elevated tee and open fairway to get on in two. For the average player it’s a layup for the second and try for a birdie with a good chip. Another standout hole to end the round beautifully.
