Golf Course Review

Frilford Heath Golf Club is a 54 hole golf club in Frilford, Oxfordshire, England. The club is near the popular tourist town and the famous university of Oxford. There are three courses here: Red, Green and Blue

Frilford Heath Golf Club Red Course

The Frilford Heath Golf Club Red Course was established in 1908 when the land was leased from Magdalen College and JH Taylor was called upon to layout 18 holes. The course was officially opened in May 1909 with a match between the course designer and Harry Vardon.

The course has been well used by the R&A hosting a number of tournaments including the English Amateur Championship and Brabazon Trophy. Additionally, the Ryder Cup was trialled at the club on March 7, 1931, in the run-up to the match played in the USA.

Frilford Heath Golf Club Green & Blue Courses

JH Turner, the club professional, added another 9 holes in 1928, which is now known as the Green Course. The second 9 holes of the Green Course were added in 1964.

A third 18 hole golf course, The Blue Course, was added in 1994 and laid out by Simon Gidman after the club bought the local pig farm.

With 54 holes on offer at Frilford Heath, the Red Course is still the one of choice.
