The Oxfordshire Golf Club is a golf resort in England, that is located 1 mile (2 km) Southwest of Thame, Oxfordshire.

It is owned by Leaderboard Golf along with 4 other golfing venues in the South East including Dale Hill Golf Club, Wadhurst, East Sussex, Sandford Springs Golf Club near Basingstoke and Newbury, Chart Hills Golf Club near Ashford in Kent and The Leaderboard Golf Centre in Reading.


After Paul Gibbons sold his shares in Hurst Publishing and Auto Trader, he created the Leaderboard brand and negotiated the purchase of The Oxfordshire Hotel and Golf Club.[1]

The golf course was designed by eminent American golf course architect Rees Jones, and has hosted many prestigious tournaments including the Benson & Hedges International Open between 1996 and 1999, and the Brabazon Trophy in 2005.

As with other Leaderboard owned courses, The Oxfordshire regularly plays host to high-profile golfing events which are televised on Sky Sports such as the Four Nations Golf Challenge 2011.[2]

Like the other Leaderboard courses, it is part of Leaderboard Golf’s ‘Premier Golf Alliance’ with other high-profile golfing venues like La Manga in Spain and Gleneagles in Scotland.

The course was recently voted into the 'Top 100 Golf Courses in England' in the publication Today's Golfer.[3]

In July 2010, Leaderboard opened a new luxury Spa and Hotel at The Oxfordshire.[4]
