Good Things come in small packages. As well as making alterations to the Red course, JH Turner, Frilford's first professional, added a new nine holes to the club's portfolio before World War Two. Together with nine more, built after the war by the respected British architect CK Cotton - whose other credits include courses of the stature of Ganton in Yorkshire, and Pennard in Wales, both of which he redesigned - Turner's holes form the Green course.
Short the Green may be by modern standards, at only 6,015 yards. But its par of 69 - the first hole is the only par five - makes playing to one's handicap much harder than a golfer might expect. Four outstanding par threes include the picturesque second and sixth, and the seventeenth, which at 206 yards is the longest 'short' hole on any of the Frilford courses. The loop formed by holes five to thirteen is separate from the rest of the property and has a lively peaceful feel, with gorse and birch prominent. Several strong par fours make the homeward stretch tough, but the 298 yard closing hole offers the chance of a smile-inducing finish.
