Golf Course Review

Tadmarton Heath Golf Club, known colloquially as Taddy, is a heathland golf course with 'traditional values and a modern outlook.' Known for its hard and fast fine turf, the heathland also features an abundance of gorse and broom.

Located south of Banbury in Oxfordshire, the club was found in 1922. CK Hutchinson designed the course but suffered greatly from 'tanks and vegetables' during WW2. However, the club rebounded quickly and golf was again being played in 1947.

The course is blessed with sandy, free-draining soil and the hilltop location leaves the golfer exposed to the wind. The remnants of an iron age fort come into play and create to blind tee shots. In preparation for its centenary, Ken Moodie has been employed to make 'strategic changes' to the course which included a five-year bunker refurbishment and the re-constructing of some of the greens.

The club has an awareness of what it wants to be -  priding itself on its traditional values but with a modern, forward-looking approach. A heathland course which prides itself on its fast, firm turf accentuated by unkempt hazards which play as such, Tadmarton Heath Golf Club has rightly earned its recent accolades and is set to rise further!
