Really enjoyable pay and play course. Sign up to their players card and get discount on green fees.
The course opens up with some fairly easy hole but then just gets better, the highlight for me is the last 4 holes, 15 is short but has a very tight fairway with trouble left and right, 16 is a gem of a par 3 from an elevated tee, 17th is a par 5 where a birdie is possible and the 18th is a short but troublesome par 4.
The staff in the pro shop are about as helpful and friendly as you will ever see which makes a change from a lot of golf clubs these days.
This should be the model of how a pay and play should be run; efficient, polite staff, good catering / bar facilities, decent practice areas and a well kept course.
Speaking of which: the course has plenty of variety and interest without being so punitive that a round is going to take forever; in short, very well designed.
I've never been so knackered after walking to a first tee and have to say, I was thinking it might be a bit of a slog. In fact, once past hole two, it's a relatively easy walk around with some stunning views.
All in all, a very pleasant experience.
Played the course on 22nd October and although there has been quite a bit of rain the course was in very good condition. Staff friendly and greens were excellent.In my opinion one of the best pay and plays courses for miles with some very challenging holes and undulating greens.
I found this course by chance as it sits between London & Bristol and it is a little gem. Played it last month (September 2010) using a 2fore1 voucher and it rained all day bar the last couple of holes.
The hospitality was first class and pro very helpful. My partner & I play off 18 so we were not put off but the helpful starter who put us at ease on our arrival at the 1st tee.
The course has plenty of challenging holes, but I'm not a long hitter so the 1st cut of rough provided a few errant shots a decent chance for me to recover. Given the incessant rain we had all day the greens were in great condition and very receptive. So too were the bunkers which I found on more than one occasion! And the last hole is a nice twist in the tail.
Great value at £20 mid-week & even better with the 2fore1 voucher. Try it - you won't be disappointed.
I last played Wycombe Heights a good 5 years ago and have always wanted to go back as it is just so different from most of the courses I play. It is VERY up and down, even the fairways have slopes on, resulting in a lot of 2nd shots (or even 3rd) being played above or below your feet.
It is not a long course and you can be a little bit wayward off the tee and get away with it but it is challenging all the same, especially if there is any wind. I would echo a previous poster's comment about a lot of blind shots - fine for regular players and members but not great for others.
The course was in generally good condition although the sand in the bunkers did seem to have a fair few stones.
A good course and well worth playing.
Very nice course, played wycombe heights for the first time today and found it a challenge with plenty of hills and slopes which make it important to be accurate, especially off the tee. Slightly frustrated by the number of "blind" shots, mostly off the tee which makes it difficult for you on your first visit. with its lovely views, well maintained course and good facilities i will definately be going back.
Played on a warm Sat afternoon at 2-30,no one in front or behind until the 11th,where that group kindly let us through,so we finished 18 in a tad over 3 hours.
Our price was 22.00 a head(it can be 28.00)however the secret to this place is the twilight,from 3pm its only 11.00 quid,this is the steal of steals.
As usual the course was presented in A1 condition,the greenkeeper has performed miracles,the clubhouse staff are equally brilliant and friendly.The course is no pushover yet playable and each hole presents itself differently,just top class on all counts.
Give it a go,you wont leave dissapointed,particularly if you take the twighlight
Really impressed by this course. Everything presented in excellent condition, from clubhouse to greens. Friendly marshalling ensured a reasonably fast round, despite it being a busy Saturday morning. Course itself is varied and challenging but fair - open parkland allowing you to be a little wayward with drives but often requiring precise approaches to well guarded greens. The greens themselves were in lovely condition, fast and difficult to read, with lots of slopes and borrows. I had my first four putt in ages and there were quite a few three putts among our group. Overall for a pay and play course this was outstanding.
After been at many courses i just know when i've played in a good quality course, coupled with my 19 years of experience in this game i must say playing at Wycombe Heights was an absolute pleasure. I have never seen the greens of a public course in such fine condition,bearing in mind that it in autumn.
The fairways were exotic i just couldn't get enough of fantastic standard of the entire course and then the food that was prepared for was went well after my wonderful round, the service was of top class ,especially the young african man behind the bar.
Everybody looked after us we were glad to be there.
Having played here on a cold Novemebr day you can see how good this course must be in better weather.
Every hole is different and presented in fantastic condition,the greens have improved so much it is hard to believe this is the same course it was a few years ago.Granted some bunkers need more sand but this is in hand.
Right from the first difficult hole the course keeps you up to your game,the variety keeps you interested for the hole 18 holes,so many good holes it is difficult to pick one that stands out.
The clubhouse has been renovated to give an airy clean feel to it and the food is served pleasantly by enthusiastic staff,the pro shop was also very helpfull.
I noticed that next to the driving range they have made a short game practice area which is also a real bonus.
Our group only paid 22.00 on a winter deal which included coffee,bacon roll,18 holes and a sinlge course lunch.Truly amazing which is more than can be said for my poor golf
Now although a member here I have to say that in the last year the course has seen massive improvements, I also aim to give an objective review before being accused of being bias. The club has invested an awful lot of money in green side watering and half the course bunkers have been re-done. The 1st hole is one of the most challeging you will find, and the course is not a beginners course by a long way. It is usually windy, and so makes this a very challenging track, YOU WILL DO WELL TO PLAY TO HANDICAPP as a first outing.
The greens are very good and run true, this will be enjoyed by both the golfing snob as well as the avaerage joe golfer like myself. The staff are very friendly and the course offfers losts of buggies for hire. The card wrecker is the 15th, beware as there is trouble everywhere!
The reason I joined was the fat the club house is very friendly and gives you the impression everyone knows each other, very welcoming for guests to share a fable or two about the round in hand.
Although quite tight in places, there are plenty of chances to use your driver, however if you are really wild you are not punished too much as the fairways run quite close to each other.
There is a nice variety of holes from long par 4's to short and nearly driveable par 4's as well.
I also liked the par 3 16th and the last is very tempting to drive the green.
Will certainly go back in the future.
What a great course! we went out as a fourball on a saturday at 1230 and managed to get round before dark, despite a society in front of us.my particular favourites were the par 3 16th and par 4 18th, both spectacular holes, down hill all the way, with invisible undulations from he 18th tee. some spectacular scenery, only let down were the bunkers, which after the rain seemed more like rockpools. all in all a 9/10
I decided to play the main course having not played it for some time. The changes are amazing!! We went out as a fourball on saturday morning and cruised round in about 4 hrs. The fairways were fantastic and the greens were quick and true. We will start using this course for a regular get together, the greenfees are very reasonable and were even thinking of bringing our society here. A great round followed but a friendly bar atmosphere for a couple of pints and some food before home.
Played 11 holes on the twilight deal for £10.50 which was great value. Fairways were in great nick and some challenging lies & bunkers. bunker sand was like concrete but we had just had a couple of days of rain. Greens were slow but in good condition. Well worth playing and great value
Fantastic views and in the wind a great test of a golfers mental as well as physical abilities. In calm weather conditions course is there for the taking.
You need to run the ball onto greens on quite a few holes and firm fairways and brownish coloured sand gives a linksy feel to the course.
Very good value for money although greens can be diabolical in the winter and I just hope they improve for summer.
fantastic layout,really challenging course,wonderful value.greens a little eratic best in spring/summer,all round best deal in bucks

This course is on the edge of the Chilterns so as you can imagine it is anything but flat. Some of the holes offer some great views but walking the course can get a little tiring for some. Great 18th follows the hills back down to the club house.
