For this early in the season, the greens seemed much faster than some of the other courses currently open. Play was a little slow and there doesn't seem to be any ranger on the course making sure people move along. They were busy today and ran out of carts by early afternoon. Had to wait until someone finished 18 and returned their cart. There wasn't anyone around to clean the cart so we took it as it was, unfortunately pigs had used it before us.
I used to love OG and have cut them so much slack, but I can’t do it anymore. Used to be a GREAT place to play and practice. Under the new management (the alliance group) the course is barely functional. It’s nothing but a money grab. One of the nicest practice ranges in the state is now barely operational, yet the price per bucket has increased. The range runs out of balls WAY too often and the idiot at the counter just shakes his head. The grass tee hasn’t been open since 2019.
If you’re playing, good luck getting a scorecard or pencil and be prepared to fix pitch marks left by other “players.” Also, you may not even have a cart for your scheduled tee time. I
Going off 1 is a crap shoot as they cut the starter and then once you get to hole 2 it’s a free for all with no ranger. Expect cart path only on sunny days with the course dry. If you know any homeless people who collects cans, send them to oxford greens, as they will surely encounter a multitude of empty cans littered all over the course.
In the old days, I would recommend oxford greens to anyone. Today, under the greedy management of the alliance group, I would recommend oxford greens only to people I don’t like. This place is a JOKE
Overpriced for course conditions
They have raised there price to $85.00 on Saturdays. If the course was in good condition I would not have no problem. But all the greens are still being filled in from being air raided. On every par three they had you teeing off mats because the tees weren’t ready. I like this course but I think it’s crazy to raise your price to $85.00 a round in the beginning of April when the course isn’t even in good condition. Save your money and go somewhere else for now.
Major pace of play issues!
I've been playing Oxford since it opened and have seen management change several times. Unfortunately current management seems to not care about 5+ hour rounds. Tee times were booked way too close together. There is no starter to prevent 20+ handicaps from playing back tees. I saw several people dribble their drives of back tees and I'm sure that was some of the bottleneck. There's also no rangers on the course to keep pace. On the 15th hole there was a group on the green, on the fairway, on the tee box. and us waiting. We tried to call the pro shop, but no help there. Absolutely unacceptable! Oxford used to be a great course, but it now seems we will look elsewhere.
Conditions were fine fore March golf in New England.
Good challenging muni
Course in good shape with challenging right to left slopes on many holes making you bring your a game but fun to play. Highly recommend.
An Autumn Fall From Grace
I try to play this course at least twice a year and it is one of my favorites in the region. I must say I came away from today’s round with the greatest disappointment I have ever had at Oxford Greens. First there is no starter to be found because the gentleman who supposedly should be doing it was also double duty with golf cart setup and returns. His absence allowed a slow foursome to jump in ahead of us at the turn, which backed up pace of play so bad that we skipped the 11th hole to get ahead of them.
But my biggest complaint was the complete absence of any grounds maintenance personnel on the entire course. 75% of the leaves have fallen from the trees, but from holes number 1 through 12 there has been no blowing of leaves in the rough and just off the cart paths and even some tee boxes, which is inexcusable. I understand it is autumn season and that puts a premium on staying in the fairway but today was ridiculous. Even for decent shots that were in the rough but inside the cart paths it was often impossible to find a ball that was swallowed up by masses of leaves that clearly had not been blown in at least three or four days. Very disappointing. And as has been mentioned by other reviewers, all the greens are aerated. Overall, very hard to get an accurate score between bumpy greens and decently played “lost” balls.
Always enjoy playing this course. Be sure to pick the tees appropriate for your level of play. If you don’t, you probably won’t enjoy the course as much. Lots of challenging greens.
Aerated without notice - greens are terrible... wait three weeks. Few holes are cart path only- why. Fees should be discounted....
Aerated greens and fairways
The greens and fairways were aerated with no public knowledge. It should have been noted when you book a tee time. Could not putt the greens because the ball acted like you were playing bumper pool plus you couldn't judge the speed. The ball looked like a snowball rolling down hill picking up sand. There was no reason for cart path only. There has been very little rain recently. Again some notification when you book a tee time would be considerate. Not worth paying for those conditions.
