As with all of our tours this year, we only have a limited number of places available, eleven for this tour to be precise. If you wish to book a place on the tour, please let Iain know via the website, email or by phone and a place will be reserved for you accordingly.
The Cotswolds Hotel, Golf & Spa
The Cotswolds Hotel, Golf course & Spa is the idyllic location for our stay in the Cotswolds.
Situated in Chipping Norton, it is set amongst the rolling Cotswold hills and offers the ideal spot for a golf tour. The hotel boasts 114 rooms set over two floors, with modern rooms overlooking the golf course. With a super Restaurant and Spa facilities too, it is an excellent location for our three-night stay in the region.
Tadmarton Heath Golf Club
Tadmarton Heath is an excellent all year round golf course. The character of the course changes with the seasons and one can never tire of the different challenges it presents. The fairways are hard and run fast in the summer, making accuracy and control of distance the priority. The unpredictable bounces and abundance of gorse will test our course management to the limit. The small greens can be difficult to find and hold, always rewarding the successful player however, with a genuine birdie opportunity. Situated on top of a hill at 650 feet, wind is invariably a factor when playing here and the prevailing westerlies can make the many long par fours difficult to reach in winter. An Iron Age fort on top of the hill comes into play on several holes providing two blind tee shots. Thanks to the free draining nature of the sandy soil and meticulous grooming with the fleet of market leading machines, the course is always presented at its best and with perfect turf, even in mid-winter.
Frilford Heath Golf Club
Frilford Heath is located on 500 acres of glorious undulating heathland and is one of the best venues in the south of England. Being one of few venues in the UK to home three Championship golf courses (Red, Green and Blue), the Club hosts the ultimate 54-hole experience, with classical or modern challenges. Each course presents its own unique challenges and no round is ever the same. The courses provide visitors with an enjoyable experience that will make one come back time and time again. The original Red Course, which is the one that we are playing, was laid out in 1908 by five times Open champion JH Taylor. An authentic championship challenge from the Black Tees, it offers a traditional heathland golfing experience with pushed-up greens that run fast and true and fairways that demand accurate driving if we are to score well. The strong stretch between holes 5 and 9 includes four hefty two shot holes and a par three at the 9th that many consider most memorable. Completing the turn sees no respite, where a finishing stretch matched by very few courses includes seven consecutive par fours to close our round! In 2013 the course once again hosted the English Amateur Championships and has hosted the European Tour 1st Stage Qualifying since 2011.
Cotswolds Golf Club
The Cotswolds Golf Club, formally Chipping Norton Golf Club, is one of the oldest courses in Oxfordshire having been established in 1890 and has been chosen as one of the top three courses in Oxfordshire by National Club Golfer Magazine in recent years. The parkland 6,284 yards, 18 hole, par 72 golf course boasts immaculate greens all year round, tree-lined fairways in a delightful but challenging setting, for golfers of all abilities and offers a warm welcome to visitors, societies and hotel guests.
