3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1994

Frilford Heath Golf Club (Blue course): The opening four holes provide a fairly wooded and watery start. Thereafter things begin to open out and by the 7th the course becomes positvely links-like in its feel and openness. The terrain is flat, but lots of interest is assured by Gidman's excellent layout, with a nice mix of dog-legs, straight holes, good quality bunkering and often smallish greens. Some of the par-4s may feel a bit short, but overall, this is a course that will be enjoyed by golfers of all levels.
