Oxford Golf Club

Oxford Golf Club is a rare commodity. With origins of golf first played on the original Cowley Marsh site as far back as 1873, it’s safe to say that Oxford Golf Club is part of the fabric of the city. One of the oldest golf clubs in England and most certainly the oldest in Oxfordshire, the original golf club to take precedence here was the Oxford University Golf Club in 1875. Since then the Oxford City Golf Club and Oxford Ladies Golf Club now consider Oxford Golf Club as their home and have done so since 1899 and 1901 respectively. Originating as far back as 1875 and designed by renowned golf course designer James Braid. The course as it is today was re-designed in 1922 by the legendary golf course architect Harry Colt, who's more notable courses, to name just a few, include: Royal Lytham St Annes Royal Portrush Muirfield Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) Sunningdale Old Wentworth West It's safe to say we follow in distinguished footsteps. Located within only two miles of the city centre you wouldn't believe that a golf course could be so close to such an urban environment, never mind fit on the parcel of land bordered on every corner by main roads and housing developments. Once you arrive at the club, the scenery couldn't be more different. Gorgeous greenery and tranquil songs from the local wildlife take precedence. With the busy city out of mind and the skyline only in view from a select number of holes this really is a 'hidden gem'​. One of the many golfers that have walked our fairways include the likes of Viscount Nuffield himself, William Morris, who also took up presidency of the Oxford City Golf Club from 1925 until his death in 1963. Closer to the present day and a rather well known gentleman by the name of Peter Dawson (former Secretary of the R&A) was also a member here back in his university days. Formerly known as Southfield Golf Club from as early as the 1920’s, the course changed its name to Oxford Golf Club in 2011 to help clarify the club’s location in Oxford to the outside world. Given this and the length of time the club has been in situ, it remains somewhat a hidden gem, tucked away off Divinity Road and Southfield Road, at the end of the adjoining Hill Top Road. Our golf club services everything from; membership, societies, pay & play as well as corporate and charity golf days. With our prime location we can play host to various events, including; wedding receptions, birthday parties and conferences.

Many things have changed over the years, but make no mistake Oxford Golf Club takes pride of place as: One of the oldest, one of the best… this is golf as it should be!
