Set in glorious countryside just outside the market town of Chipping Norton.

We are proud of our scenic parkland course, which is set in glorious countryside just outside the market town of Chipping Norton, itself the ‘gateway to the Cotswolds’. The 6,316 yard 18-hole course provides a constant challenge for golfers of all ages and abilities and because it drains so well, is playable throughout the year. As a members’ club we are able to offer both competitive and social golf for all sections. The modern clubhouse is the venue for numerous social events and includes two bars and a dining room where our resident chef offers a wide range of snacks and meals.

Club History

History surrounding golf reflects how mother nature and human behaviour have developed this wonderful game since 1450 to all parts of the world.

The golf club officially started on 11th March 1890, which makes it the oldest club in Oxfordshire. History surrounding golf reflects how mother nature and human behaviour have developed this wonderful game since 1450 to all parts of the world. In 1242, the Earl of Arundel and Lord of the Demense of Chipping Norton, gave 500 acres of land to Chipping Norton. By 1890 only about 35 acres was still owned by the town which was known as The Common and that was where the golf course was established. In 1907 the club moved to the Southcombe site and rented land for the course. Ladies as well as gentlemen have always played an important role in the club, the club minutes of 1932 refer to a ladies’ committee. In October 1934 a committee report stated the club held various discussions with the owner of the land, Mr.C.Penford, and he agreed to sell 59 acres for £600. The report explained how if the club owned the land many improvements of a permanent and constructive nature could be made. The members supported this and the land was bought. In 1944, during the war, the course was ploughed up for the planting of cereals and replanted in 1948. The direction for playing the course was reversed, as the back nine holes are today. Apart from the 18th hole, the last nine greens are the same as the earlier ones. Although there were only nine holes, they would play them twice giving an 18 hole score. In 1955 an extra nine set of tees were laid which fundamentally made it an 18 hole course.

History

The competitive side of the club continued to expand throughout the club’s history.

The competitive side of the club continued to expand throughout the club’s history. The number of playing members has increased over the years from about 40 in 1897 to 696 in 2007 and so have competitions. Records up to 1906, for all categories of players, show five Major competitions plus Monthly Medals. By 1950 ten Majors plus Monthly Medals, by 1980 20 plus Monthly Medals and in 2007 80 competitions including Monthly Medals. Two of these are dated 1907 and one 1924, also an 1895 silver Monthly Medal. In 1984 extra land was bought for a new nine holes and the club now has a complete 18 holes course. Apart from the 18th hole, the last 9 greens are the same as those laid out in 1948. The latest acquisition is land for a driving range and a junior academy. Various clubhouses have been built throughout the years, the last was in 1987. Further details of our history can be seen on the club’s website www.chippingnortongolfclub.com

The Norman Knight is a traditional Cotswolds village pub overlooking the pretty village green featuring flagstone floors and during colder months, open log fires. The pub is featured in the latest edition of the Good Pub Guide. We are located in the small Warwickshire village of Whichford, a Grade 4 Conservation Area and part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We serve excellent homemade lunches and evening meals and every Sunday we serve a traditional carvery lunch. On site is our own microbrewery - The Patriot Brewery, crafting fine ales from the Cotswolds. Whichford is an ideal holiday location being halfway between Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford and yet close to the classic Cotswolds towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow on the Wold, Burford and Broadway. Whichford is a popular area for walkers, and there are golf courses, fishing lakes, swimming pools, tennis courts and riding stables nearby. The pub has its own caravan site with electric hook-ups and hot showers and welcomes caravans all year round. A Hard standing pitch is available if required. The name of the pub reflects the history of the village. “Wicford” is recorded in William the Conqueror’s Doomsday book, and we know that Sir John de Mohun and the Knights of Dunster held the manors, the church and the castle here until about 1340. The castle is now long gone, but the beautiful Norman church still remains. The pub is also a keen supporter of live music - see our website for details of upcoming events:

The Course - Hole by Hole A challenging 6,316 yards 18 hole, par 71 course is set out in two loops, comprising tree-lined fairways in a delightful setting and maintained to a high standard throughout. One of the highlights of the front nine is the par 3, 3rd, played over a well stocked lake, home to a wide selection of golf balls! The River Glyme rises close by and is the source of a number of water features throughout the course. Due to its location the course is playable all year round, a bonus for the keen golfer. Over the following pages you can take a course tour, pick up play tips from our club professional and learn the trials and tribulations hole by hole. Hole 1 - 455 yards par 4 - A tough long opening hole with trees and bunkers right and out of bounds left. Try to favour the right hand side of the fairway. Play the second shot slightly left and it will feed into the green. Hole 2 - 370 yards par 4 - Another toughie with a well placed fairway bunker and a fairway that slopes towards it! The second shot is uphill and will play slightly longer so one extra club may be needed. Hole 3 - 152 yards par 3 - A picturesque par 3 and the first of our four short holes. The wind can be deceiving here and it can play anything from a short iron to a fairway wood. Take plenty of club otherwise the lake awaits! Hole 4 - 305 yards par 4 - Don’t be deceived as it looks straight forward enough but beware the out of bounds left and well placed bunker to the right. The second shot is to a well protected green that slopes from right to left.

The Course - Hole by Hole Continued...

Hole 5 - 483 yards par 5 - Drive slightly left of the fairway bunker. Don’t take too much on for your second shot. Be careful of the water. Hole 6 - 492 yards par 5 - A long hole that plays uphill and often into the wind. Be careful of the hidden bunker for your second shot. Miss the green left or right and the bunkers await. Seems straight forward but often a card wrecker! Hole 7 - 395 yards par 4 - A dog-leg left. The bunker on the right is visible from the tee and catches many out. The second shot is all downhill to a tricky green. Don’t go long as all sorts of trouble lies over the green. Par is a very good score on this hole. Hole 8 - 190 yards par 3 - The longest of our par 3s. Always take one more club as the green sits on a slight incline and catches many out. Be aware of the left hand bunker. A strong hole. Hole 9 - 381 yards par 4 - Slightly uphill but a generous driving area. The green is protected by bunkers left and right and if missed can leave a treacherous chip. Hole 10 - 171 yards par 3 -The first hole on the old 9. This is one of our signature holes and is very difficult to club. Between tee and green sits a deep dip and a bunker wraps round the front of the green to catch any under hit shot. Hole 11 - 504 yards par 5 - A beautiful par 5 that sweeps right to left into the trees. Aim your drive at the ash tree on the right side of the fairway. The land slopes from right to left so play your approach shot slightly right of the green.

The Course & Hole by Hole Continued...

Hole 12 - 267 yards par 4 - A real risk and reward hole. Easily drivable for the big hitters but trouble awaits left and right. To lay up favour the left side of the fairway for an easy approach to a well protected green. A good birdie chance. Hole 13 - 442 yards par 4 - A long par 4 but with a very generous fairway that slopes from left to right so try and keep it up the right side. The green sits in a dip and your approach shot will come in from left to right. Hole 14 - 411 yards par 4 - A dog-leg from right to left that may tempt the bigger hitter to take on. Avoid the bunkers on the right side of the fairway. The green runs away from you so the second shot can play shorter than the yardage. Hole 15 - 138 yards par 3 - A short par 3 that looks straightforward but miss the green and you will struggle for your par. A deep bunker left and pot bunker right is awaiting any loose shot. Hole 16 - 359 yards par 4 - A tricky driving hole with two fairway bunkers on the right side of the fairway so try and favour the left side. The green is well protected and slopes off severely on the right side leaving a tough chip. Hole 17 - 439 yards par 4 - The hardest hole on the course and our signature hole. Only a well struck drive will clear the hedge and then you’ve got to avoid the bunkers for your second shot. The green is small and very well protected. Good luck! Hole 18 - 362 yards par 4 - A pretty and fairly gentle finishing hole. The tee shot is better staying on top for easier vision of the green for your second shot. Anything short will run all the way down the bank so make sure you take plenty of club.

Creative financial planning Hello. My name is Richard Henderson and I live in Shipston. I spend my time unearthing and familiarising myself with unusual tax-planning and investment opportunities. I can tell you how they work, and then if you’re interested, introduce you to their architects. Such arrangements are not designed for the average man in the street. They’ll be of interest only to entrepreneurial business owners and financially sophisticated individuals. If there’s a target market for such arrangements, it’s probably members of the Chipping Norton Golf Club! Tax planning opportunities include (but are not restricted to) the transfer of company assets (cash or property) to the company’s owner, free of taxes; and a remuneration strategy which enables the extraction of capital as remuneration in a manner which doesn’t expose the individual to Income tax, NI, or Benefits in Kind. It is also IHT-efficient. There are two versions of this arrangement; one which gives a Corporation Tax deduction on the contribution; one (for the cautious) which doesn’t. The architects of these arrangements are ex-HMRC people. They know what works and what doesn’t. Investment opportunities include: • One for higher rate taxpayers to make a minimum ROI of 200% within 6-8 months • Fine wine for longer term capital growth (capital gains tax free) • Gold and silver bullion as a hedge against uncertainty

Finance

• Green oil for income (20% p.a.) • Structured investments offering a predictable outcome within defined risk parameters. For owners of commercial property, I can introduce you to an arrangement whereby if my connection (Cyril Sweett) cannot identify at least £25,000 of Capital Allowances for you to offset against tax, it won’t cost you a bean. Only 4% of commercial properties have ever benefited from these allowances. Astonishing, but true! It’s because they relate to the costs associated with the original construction of the building, not the time from which you acquired it. And if (their having identified allowances of more than £25,000) you invite Cyril Sweet to prepare the claim for submission to HMRC, their fee will be measurably less than the tax relief you obtain, so you’re always in the money. And they’ve never had a claim rejected by HMRC; 100% success rate. These are not arrangements with which your financial adviser or accountant are likely to be familiar. A chat costs nothing. If you’re open to lateral thinking, it could be half an hour very well spent. I can be contacted on: 01608 661911, 07785 722486, or richard.henderson@zen.co.uk Oh and by the way, if you own an unencumbered home or buy-to-let property, there’s something you really need to hear!

Golf Academy

The philosophy of the Academy is to treat everyone as an individual and tailor sessions to his or her specific needs.

Our Golf Academy helps and encourages everyone from complete beginners to qualified golf professionals, through simple structured coaching sessions, based on individual needs. We are proud of our GolfMark status awarded in 2007. GolfMark is a joint initiative between Sport England, the English Golf Union and English Ladies’ Golf Association, which recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities under the key areas of coaching, playing, club environment, child protection and duty of care. We have active Academy and junior membership sections and thanks to the low cost coaching programmes provided by our resident Professional Stuart Davies, a number of our juniors now play to single figure handicaps.
