Second hole, par-3, 182 (blues). A challenging tee shot, yet the hole becomes tougher when you land a good distance from the pin. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023
Fourth: The number 3 index, this par-4 or 424 will test your skills from tee to cup. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023
The par-3 ninth plays 197 yards from the blues. Its green is positioned and shaped like a Redan hole, but without the right-to-left cant. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023
Chuck, a good driver of the golf ball, prepares to tee off at the number 1 index hole at Oxford Greens, the par-4 twelfth. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023
The twelfth is named “Double Plateau” for its green, which means that the putting surface actually has three elevations. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023
The fourteenth, a par-4 of 418 with water on the left, is named “Plead,” and you may well find yourself begging it for mercy before putting out. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 07/21/2023

18th, par-4, 458: You’ll need to commit to your full swing (twice) to play a hole tagged with the name “Trust In.” Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021
16th: The short par-3 of 170 lives up to its moniker: “Fortress.” It’s green complex is built like one. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021
An earlier, summertime picture taken of the first hole, called “Road Out,” gives a glimpse of a green sided by a road (behind) and a pesky pot bunker. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021
The sixth–a.k.a. the “Red Oaks”--is index 13, but will still present a few problems enroute to a drive-and-pitch par. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021
“Timberlake” is hole seven, and the hole is all about avoiding the trees and playing some tricky angles from tee to green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021
Eight: “Turtle” is a long par-five of 570 that can snap at you. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 12/13/2021

Five: Maybe the most aesthetic par four at OG. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 09/07/2020

Bring your own food and water
No water on the course( STILL on the covid thing?) Ridiculous. No beverage cart, no refreshment stand.
And, here's one for the suggestion box.. when your greens are aerated, let the players know during the booking process. Bunkers look like they haven't been raked in weeks, hard pan mud.
Other than that, we all know this is a great course and a fabulous layout
Course was tough!
Oxford Greens was in great shape, but the pin placements were brutal. One of the hazards of booking by yourself is you play with strangers. The starter made a poor decision and made me give up my cart and ride with a difficult person. This completely compromised my round. Too bad, because the course was great.
My favorite golf course!
The tees are in very rough shape but it’s still my favorite course to play in Connecticut!
Great Course has a private feel while being public.
Was a great challenging but easy to play course. Highly recommend it for everybody.
Tough course, fast greens
Fastest greens around, very tricky course. Bring lots of balls.
Has gone downhill fast
This used to be one of my favorite courses to play. When we showed up on Sunday, we were able to tee off seven minutes early. There was nobody in front of us, and nobody behind us. Within three holes we caught up to the group in front of us and they had no one in front of them. This slowed the pace of play to an unbelievably slow round of golf, and we didn’t see a Ranger all day to fix the issue. This course used to be in fantastic shape, which is why I recommended it to my out-of-state friends, and I wouldn’t mind paying a few extra dollars to play here. The round cost us $100 each, and of course was in mediocre shape at best. At least three of the par 4/5 tee boxes were complete dirt. There were several patches of the fairways and greens where there was just no grass, during a year where there has been more than average rainfall, and other courses are flourishing. On most of the greens, it look like there was no divot repair, and chunks of grass and dirt covered several areas (not due to aeration). The fairways were hit and miss at best. If the round we’re between $50 and $60, this would’ve been acceptable. I will not recommend this course until the conditions drastically improve.
Better the second time around
Traps dried out nicely. We got paired up with some good guys, very good golfers. Great day. Course is challenging but fair.
Slow Play Day
Teed off at 11:30, left course at 3:45 after playing 14 holes. Rangers were out but could not move groups along, especially on the back 9. Waited on every shot, two groups on each tee box. Threw in the towel and left course early. Never again on a weekend.
I’ve played Oxford over a dozen times in the last six or seven years and I’m not sure why I go back. Bunkers were still eroded and mud covered a week after the last rain. Greens are hard as a rock, shots ricochet over, course leans left so right handers prepare to play every shot above your feet, including tee shots. Divots and ball marks are not repaired, and bunkers that had just been serviced were hard-packed and uneven, dragging with a three wheeler is no way to rake a bunker. The place is a swamp so bring your Off, mosquitoe netting might be more appropriate. Thursday morning round took nearly five hours, no marshals, no water. We did have plenty of time to find balls, my bag is full, but they have big balls charging $60 for this poor excuse for a goat pasture.
Will play again when fixed up
Amenities perfect. Staff perfect. Fairways beautiful. Greens, tee boxes and traps need work. Looks like they got washed out by a storm. Once fixed this course will be a gem again
Been waiting to play this track
Awesome amenities. Staff was tremendous. Love the putting green and driving range. Just great stuff. Fairways were luscious. Tee boxes need a ton of work as do the greens. Ball marks that haven’t been fixed are on every green everywhere. Tee boxes look like no one uses the fill in for their divots. Can’t blame the course for all of that as the people playing should have the etiquette to fix all of those. Looks like really bad weather came through recently and washed away all the traps as well. When it’s in better condition I will absolutely be back. The layout is beautiful
First time in a while.
Course still in good condition. Some traps were muddy, but that’s to be expected.
Needs some work
- Beat up tee boxes
- Greens that look like the moon with divots
- Greens slower than slow. Ball would stop on a decline
