Rye Hill Golf Club is a traditional parkland course, with heathland features and panoramic views. As a EuroPro Tour venue, it is testimony to the high calibre of this championship 6,900 yd par 72 course. Benefiting from free drainage, the course is playable in the wettest of weather and trolleys can be used all year. It will test the abilities of both high and low handicappers with its strategically placed bunkers to catch wayward shots and the large and undulated greens to test even the best putters. No houses or suburban developments can be seen from any point on the course, only the picturesque church at Bloxham coming into view on a few holes. The rest is left to the rolling countryside, wildlife and lakes. Set on high ground with magnificent views across Oxfordshire, the course is a hidden gem.
Rye Hill Golf Club is located in Banbury near Oxford, easily accessible from the M40.
I've played here several times before and always love coming back. It always surprises me that the car park isn't packed when I pull in as Rye Hill GC is hands down one of the best courses in the area and for the cost when booking through TeeOffTimes you feel you're on to a winner. Just about every time I've played here, midweek and over the weekend, I've basically had the course to myself. I've never had to wait for players in front (and I like to play quite quickly) or felt pressured to kick-on by those behind which makes for a very relaxed atmosphere and a great round of golf. The staff are brilliant, you get a warm welcome and a quick talk about the course and the layout by the Pro if it's your first time there. The Pro Shop is very well equipped, there is a driving range where you have to hire balls I believe or you can take your own, putting green etc. It was cold, wet and snowing when I played. The course is in very good condition. The greens are still running true and holding up nicely. The back tees are in very good knick as usual, however the front tees are temporary from what I noticed, still they were in average condition. The fairways are the best I've played on this winter, they were firm under foot which was greatly appreciated - no wet & muddy shoes at the end of the round! I really enjoy the layout, it's a good balance even playing off the back tees and I like the fact that the Par 3's aren't ridiculously long either. I will definitely be back again soon. It's a great course.

First time for 4 years and what an improvement! Friendly pro explaing tee changes and warm welcome. Course has had a severe makeover with the rough manicured. The greens were smooth and true and quite fast considering all the rain we had this week. The airline did not work hard to clean my shoes and trolley. Clubhouse staff were friendly and helpfull and a great sausage batch. No cask ale on but hopefully that will change. We will definitely be going back soon
