Home to 3 championship golf courses, Frilford Heath has a place as one of the best golf complex's in the UK.
Frilford Heath Golf Club 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 golf club offer three championship golf courses (Red, Green and Blue) that allow the opportunity to revel in their classical or modern challenge!
The original Red Course was laid out in 1908 by five times Open champion JH Taylor measured 721 yards less than today’s 6915 on its par 72. An authentic championship challenge from the Black Tees, it offers a traditional heathland golfing experience with pushed-up greens that run fast and true and fairways that demand accurate driving if golfers are to score well. The strong stretch between holes 5 and 9 includes four hefty two shot holes and a par three at the 9th that many consider most memorable.
Completing the turn sees no respite, where a finishing stretch matched by very few courses includes seven consecutive par fours to close your round! In 2013 it once again hosted the English Amateur, and has hosted the European Tour 1st Stage Qualifying since 2011.
The classical Green Course may be the shortest, at just over 6,000 yards, but its par 69 is no pushover, from the outset it offers its only par five as an opening hole, and birdie opportunities from there on are few and far between. The affectionately known “short 9” of holes 5 to 13 have even after 85 years retained their original layout that includes two exacting Par 3's, a true testament to their designer J H Turner!
Likened to many classical heathland courses the Green course is much more than a noisy neighbour, its layout compliments both of the other golf courses and should not be missed out on.
The Blue Course was designed by Simon Gidman and opened in 1994 with a par 72 scorecard measuring over 6700 yards from the Black Tees. Once you have survived the card threatening water on the early holes, you meander through a number of par four dog legs and four par fives that face in all compass directions, seemingly getting the best of the prevailing westerly. The subtle greens are more undulating than on the two older courses, and offer a number of interesting and challenging flag positions as tested by the PGA Europro Tour who host a televised event each June and for five days every spring the Blue and the Red Course becomes the home of the PGA Europro Tour Qualifying School.
