10 reviews of Cherwell Edge Golf Club

Excellent course, good condition, the greens were a bit bumpy, mainly due to recent work being undertaken for Summer. The firways were in good condition. The contrast between the front 9 and the back is striking and makes the course good fun, however, on a couple of the holes, the 11th and the 17th especially a map of the hole at the TeeBox would be very useful. Staff were excellent and very helpful and the food was very tasty. Would definitely play here again. As a 4-ball we paid £27.50 each for two rounds, very good value.

Played the course after 2 months of abysmal weather and it was in good condition considering. 3 temporary greens were in play on the back nine but at £12 for 18 holes, you can't really complain.
The course as a whole was better than expected however, there were only a couple of minor things i disliked about it. The walks between 10 and 11 and the 18th to the clubhouse! were too much of a slog for my liking and I'm a firm believer in 18th greens being located in full view of the clubhouse. The course mixes long par 4's with one's that are reachable off the tee, with plenty of undulating holes on the back nine. The course is pretty forgiving off the tee with a distinct lack of bunkers surrounding some of the greens.
Would definitely return for a round once the course is fully open again as it's an enjoyable course to play.

We played Cherwell Edge on Tuesday, the course was in excellent condition after some of the worst rain in the previous 24 hours. The front and back 9's couldn't be more different, the front flat and back very hilly - we were shattered after our round ( 3 ball took 3 1/2 hours ) only disappointment on the course was the greens, bit bobbley and woolly. The hospitality we received was excellent as was the fodder. Only down point was the mid-week green fees which at £25 was on the steep side

Played here midweek October 06 (£11 using a Green Free voucher).
Quite a pretty ,scenic & quiet treelined parkland course.The course is well presented & there are plenty of splashes of Autumn colour in the many trees that line all the fairways & really enhance the course visually.
You saunter along quite pleasantly on the gently undulating first 10 holes .However,the character of the course changes significantly when you cross over a road ( a sign would help )to play the last 8 .The scenic aspect still impresses but the terrain becomes very hilly.
On every hole on this side there is a hill to go up or down & after a while this becomes wearing. In an individual context these holes are fine but there's no restbite.The course also becomes much more positional.
There then follows one of the longest walks from an 18th green to a clubhouse that i've been on to top it all off & finish me off too.
Also out of the 5 par threes there was only one short yardage hole the other's all being at least 4 irons from the whites.( 4 short 1 long would be much more enjoyable ).
I would describe the course as pleasant but the hilly 'hard work' nature of the last 8 holes would prevent me from playing this course again.

I have been introduced to the Golf club by Ron Cavalier one of your elderly players - and I am really impressed - at present I am on the driving range and putting green - and cannot wait to actually play the greens - the kindness that i receive from people is wonderfull, especially in the clubhouse - that i do not worry about visiting the club on my own. SJ.
I have no handicap - but to allow me to process my comments,I have entered a figure. SJ.

Really enjoyed my afternoons golf here. Met up with a member who showed me around. Front 10 are a regular parkland style with some very strategic bunker placements. The back 8 are more interesting with streams and contours much more part of the play.
Very relaxed and friendly place - no stuffyness here and it is reflected in a booming membership. Helpful staff, good range and £23 for a round seemed very reasonable.
I'll be back

Played Cherwell Edge for the first time on New Year's Eve 2002. Despite the relentless rain in the days before, the course was open and eminently playable with no need for temporary greens or tees.
A fair challenge for low and high handicappers alike and set in some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.
Comfortable and welcoming clubhouse with convivial hosts - well recommended.

Cherwell Edge has had some extensive ground work completed, with the most noticeable change being the swapping of the 9's, i.e. old front is now 10-18. The back nine is the most foirgiving, with the front nine offering some challenging holes, as well as the most exercise. The grounds are well grown in and scenic. The club house / changing rooms are very well stocked and maintained. Good driving range and shop on site.
The course is more challenging than the score card may suggest, it's not overly long, it's got well kept, thoughtful greens and allows you to take few chances.
It's situated in a lovely part of the country, which is easy to get to.

A nice ,not long ,parkland course that provides a tougher test than the score card may suggest. Condition of both course and clubhouse is improving rapidly since new management took control. General playing conditions now as good as any in the area and the club is welcoming to new faces.
Worth a look !
