Frilford Heath


2019: CSS 74 SSS 74

Frilford Heath Golf Club is located to the South of Oxford on 500 acres of undulating heathland.

The Red Course, the earliest of Frilford Heath’s three courses, was laid out in 1908 by five-time Champion Golfer of the Year JH Taylor who was part of the 'Great Triumvirate.' Along with James Braid and Harry Vardon, Taylor dominated golf around the turn of the twentieth century, later turning to course design at courses such as Royal Birkdale and Royal Mid-Surrey.

An authentic championship challenge from the Black Tees, the Red Course offers a traditional heathland golfing experience with pushed-up greens that run fast and true and fairways that demand accurate driving if golfers are to score well. The strong stretch between holes 5 and 9 includes four hefty two-shot holes and a par three at the 9th that many consider most memorable. Completing the turn sees no respite, where a finishing stretch matched by very few courses includes seven consecutive par fours to close the round.

Qualifying will take place on the Red Course.
