The course is set in 135 acres of beautiful Oxfordshire countryside and easily accessible, being set in the M40 corridor. The golf course is complemented by 11 lakes strategically placed around the course, which help to provide a challenge to every kind of player in the golf world. Several new-look holes will impress all those who are revisiting and all new-comers. One of the many outstanding features of the course is the condition of the greens, which have all been reconstructed to USGA specifications. Here are some more reasons why you should choose Bicester Hotel, Golf and Spa as your golfing destination:

About Our Golf Club Bicester Hotel, Golf and Spa, originally Chesterton Golf Club, was built in 1973 and designed by Mr. R. Stagg. The golf club was purchased by the Payne family in 2000 and they have taken the whole facility into the 21st century.

• • • • •

A testing 6,255 yard, par 71, 18-hole golf course. Emphasis is on positional play off the tee rather than length. Undulating greens add to the challenge of the golf course. 10-bay driving range. Short game academy, which includes putting green, chipping area and practice bunker.

www.bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com

7


Hole 1, 363 yards, par 4 Accuracy, not distance, is required off the tee. A conservative approach to the centre of the green is wise, with water right and left.

Hole 2, 346 yards, par 4 A dead straight hole back towards the Health Club, aim for the centre of the fairway for the best approach and beware the bunkers at either side of the dog-leg. When the flag is on the left side of the green, a precise shot is required.

Hole 3, 162 yards, par3

Take the Course Tour A visit to Bicester Hotel, Golf and Spa is something to savour. We promise you will be in for a treat and to ensure you enjoy your round to the fullest, take a moment to read our course guide with helpful tips from Jamie Herbert, The Head Golf Professional, to ensure you score well and avoid the pitfalls which lie in wait for the unwary. 8

www.bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com

Club selection can be tricky due to the protection of the hole from the trees behind and to the right, an extra club is generally required.

Hole 4, 440 yards, par 4 Aim for the bridge on this superb, testing par 4. A dog-leg left, long hitters may cut the corner. Club selection is vital for the second shot over the lake. If in doubt, lay up to the left.


Hole 5, 484 yards, par 5 The large bunker on the right is in play for long hitters, while others have to contend with the lateral water hazard. The fairway narrows, so an accurate approach is required.

Hole 6, 459 yards, par 4 Fade your drive away from the bunker on the left for optimum position. The green is tiny, so accuracy is again all-important.

Hole 7, 488 yards, par 5 A nice wide fairway. Long hitters can reach in two, but beware of the hidden bunker on the right and water on the left.

Hole 8, 125 yards, par 3 Club selection is important on this short but tricky hole, which is guarded by two bunkers at the front. The front half of the green also has a significant downhill slope which can leave you with an awkward putt.

Hole 9, 361 yards, par 4 A positioned tee shot is required between the mounds either side of this dog-leg left. Aim for the centre left of the putting surface with your approach to the two-tiered green.

Hole 10, 225 yards, par 3 A tough hole. Be sure not to under-club, especially into the prevailing wind.

Hole 11, 304 yards, par 4 Keep to the left side of the fairway to avoid the bunkers. Beware the water hazard left and long.

Take the Course Tour Continued...

Hole 12, 167 yards, par 3 Be sure to take enough club on this super short hole. Carry the lake in front of the green, then pause for breath and admire the beauty of this par 3.

Hole 13, 512 yards, par 5 Favour the right side of the fairway for a better view around the corner of this sharp dog-left left. Look out for the hidden bunker short right of the green.

Hole 14, 298 yards, par 4 Water, water, everywhere. Do not be daunted by all the hazards. An accurate tee shot to the main fairway sets up a straightforward pitch to the green.

Hole 15, 300 yards, par 4 More water features await any poorly-directed shots. A positioned iron to the main fairway sets up a good view of the large green. An accurate iron may set up a birdie chance.

Hole 16, 427 yards, par 4

Take the Course Tour Continued...

A demanding par 4 requiring a good drive, with trees left and a water hazard running down the right. The narrow entrance to the green requires an accurate approach.

Hole 17, 412 yards, par 4 Aim for the right side of the fairway for the best view of the green. The generous putting surface invites a positive approach shot.

Hole 18, 382 yards, par 4 A dog-leg right, the centre of the fairway sets up the best approach. If the pin is on the right side of the green, a very precise shot is required, with a watery grave awaiting shots hit too far right. www.bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com 13


The Men’s section compete for 24 trophies throughout the year as well as two monthly medals or Stableford competitions. The two monthly medal competitions are played between the months of April and September with one being midweek to accommodate any 5 day members and one on a Saturday or Sunday.

There are also a number of friendly Men’s matches taking place throughout the year with other local clubs. In addition to the friendly matches the club also competes in two local leagues, the Shaws Scratch League and the Central 7s League, in which we enter two teams. There are also some ad hoc fun competitions run throughout the year. Every ability and type of golfer is catered for here at Bicester, from social golf to being involved competitively and representing the club locally in matches and competitions. The Ladies section is very similar. They have 13 trophy competitions as well as the monthly medal or Stableford competitions. The Ladies also play a number of matches against other local clubs. The medals and Stablefords are run as a weekly competition so again 5 and 7 day members are catered for.

The Seniors section compete for 10 exclusive trophies and enjoy 12 medal and Stableford competitions. The Seniors can, of course, enter any of the Men’s competitions.

We currently have a strong Junior section with around 30 active juniors. They have four exclusive trophies and are also eligible to play in any of the Men’s competitions.

We offer a full custom fit facility and have many demo drivers, fairways and irons that you can take onto the course so you can try before you buy. As part of the Alliance buying group we are more than competitive on prices, but to be able to speak to one of the professionals and get expert advice to ensure you are buying the right product is even more important. Trolleys and buggies are available for hire from the Pro Shop for those looking to take the weight of a golf bag off their shoulders. You will get round quicker, giving you more time to spend in the clubhouse as well as more energy to invest in your shot selection.

The Professional Shop

For further information on our services, please call 01869 241204. Alternatively, you can pop in and see us at anytime.

Bicester Golf Shop is the place to go to take care of all your golfing needs. Our Head Professional Jamie Herbert and his team are on hand to give you the advice and information you require to make sound buying decisions.

www.bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com 17


Bicester Golf Club has three golf coaches, Jamie Herbert, Peter Thompson and Glenn Oakes, who between them have more than 25 years’ coaching experience. After consulting with you, ascertaining your aims and ambitions and seeing your current golfing standard, your chosen professional will develop an individual teaching programme for all standards of golfer utilising the Quintic video analysis software as used by PGA Professionals. Jamie puts his emphasis on putting, specialising in this field since spending a day with Dr Paul Hurrion, putting coach to Padraig Harrington.

Golf Lessons and Clinics “We as professionals strive to make what someone already does more efficient rather than making everyone do the same thing. One size does not fit all in golf.”

www.bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com

Putting is the one area of the game that an everyday player could be as good, if not better than any of the top 100 golfers in the world. It is often an overlooked skill and one which, if perfected, can make a huge difference not only to a player’s handicap but to their overall outlook on the game and their confidence on the golf course. Jamie offers a one-day intensive putting course where your current stroke will be recorded and analyzed before you are taught the stroke required for consistent ball striking which should result in more holed putts, better distance control and less of those dreaded three putts.


Peter and Glenn focus on all areas of the game, offering 30-minute and one-hour lessons with video available if desired and nine and 18-hole on-course playing lessons. The club also runs a series of clinics throughout the year aimed at improving the golfing experience for Juniors, Ladies and Seniors. Glenn runs a junior clinic on Saturday mornings between 10am-11am. These clinics are open to members and nonmembers. There is no need to book, just arrive at the Pro Shop at about 9.55am. These clinics are a very fun and an enjoyable way for boys and girls to start golf. The age ranges from 4 to 15. For further information on lesson please call 01869 241204 or Jamie.herbert@bicesterhotelgolfandspa.com

This also applies to the practice facilities, which make the pursuit of perfection – or perhaps just steady improvement – a pleasurable and rewarding experience rather than a chore. The driving range complements the rest of the facilities at the Golf Club. The 10-bay range has the most up-todate artificial grass and is positioned from a raised teeing area with many targets at different distances to help concentrate your practice, or to enable you to have fun competitions with fellow golfers. Range tokens dispensing 20, 50 and 90 balls are available from either the Pro Shop or reception.

Practice Facilities The Golf Club at Bicester prides itself in being able to offer the complete package to prospective members – an outstanding, picturesque golf course complemented by some excellent off-course facilities which are comparable to any that can be found for miles around.

In addition, the club has a very impressive short game academy area, which includes putting green, chipping area and practice bunker. Smart golfers know that the quickest way to reducing your handicap is by practising this area of the game because it can shave strokes off the round of the average player.
