Frilford Heath Golf Club (Red course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Frilford Heath Golf Club (Red course): With 54-holes of golf on offer at Frilford Heath you are spoilt for choice. Many would argue the Red course, a classic heathland layout, designed by the great J.H.Taylor, gets the edge on the newer Blue course and the shorter Green course. There are no long carries over heather here, but the often gorse-lined fairways and excellent bunkering gives good form to the holes. There are no views as such from the course, and you may not feel your game is being severely tested, but the quality of maintenance and layout will ensure a very pleasant round here at one of Oxfordshire's best.
