Frilford's three 18 hole courses offer a range of delights. With almost a hundred years of golf design heritage, players can choose a classic or a modern challenge as they see fit.
The quality of the Red course, has attracted top class amateur golf for many years. Laid out in 1908 by five times Open champion JH Taylor, part of the 'Great Triumvirate', along with James Braid and Harry Vardon, Taylor dominated golf around the turn of the twentieth century. He later turned to course design at courses such as Royal Birkdale and Royal Mid-Surrey. At over 6,800 yards, the Red course will be a test of any golfer's skills.
The Green course at Frilford Heath may be the shortest, at just over 6,000 yards, but playing to a stiff par of 69, it is no pushover. As at the legendary Rye links in Kent, the Green's only par five is the opening hole - from then on, birdie opportunities can be few and far between.
Opened in 1994, the Blue course, designed by respected British golf architect Simon Gidman, has a more modern, open look, with a number of water hazards threatening, notably on the early holes. The course offers a stern test, with par five and par three holes in particular facing in all directions. Greens are more undulating than on the two older courses, and offer a number of interesting and challenging flag positions.
"Thank you so much for everything yesterday and please thank whoever arranged to give us such a good price. The ladies thought the whole day was wonderful.
