Over booked

Had a Golf now Tee time changed due to a competition.

Didn't even tee off as they had overbooked by a country mile. Frustrating as course looks great but was not willing to have to play through the whole course or be sandwiched between group after group of slow playing parties. Did try to call to complain but no answer.

Slow play ruined round

Painfully slow round, at least 10 minute delay on each hole and no one lets you play through.

Gave up after 9 holes.

Great course but won't be playing there again unless this improves

First time at Bicester

A tricky but enjoyable test. Accuracy is key here with the rough proving quite punishing at times. Very sloppy greens take some skill to play on and several pins were very well hidden. Given its proximity to the M40 a touch noisy at times but the course is in excellent condition and worth another visit for certain.

Excellent Golf Course.

Excellent and very well maintained Golf Course. Enjoyed the 12th Signature hole in particular across the lake!
Unfortunately was not able to complete our round on this occasion due to fading light but will most certainly try again very soon if possible.
Thank You Bicester Golf

We were lucky with the weather for the round, but it had belted down the day before - ok couple of puddlles and some soft areas, but course was fully open and playable. Very enjoyable round !

Disappointing

Having not played this course for several years, the anticipation of returning was high.
Visited the putting green only to find four people showing poor etiquette by chipping onto it form off the green. Moved off and the course was busy, but desperately slow. Biggest disappointment was the greens. Complete lottery on every putt. Asked by son in law, would you come back tomorrow for a fiver?
His reply, “not if they paid me the fiver”
Sums it up really

I really enjoyed the day . The layout is good and the condition is fair. Unfortunately the greens were hollow tyned so they were very bumpy.

Spiked Greens

All greens were heavily spiked and should have been reflected in the price.

Nice course but poor condition

Nice course, but wasn’t in great condition. The fairways weren’t that defined and greens recently spiked and quite bumpy. But nice layout and would like to play again when in better condition

Challenging course, Greens in superb nick

Cracking challenge. The front 9 plays quite long and the back 9 shorter but both require accuracy and good technical ability with bunkers and water in strategic places. However, the greens were the real highlight as they were in superb condition and played very quick. Lots of undulations, levels and pins placed in tricky areas. Single handicappers can expect a few three-putts out there.
