New partnership with Oxford Golf Club
Oxford City Stars is delighted to announce a new partnership with Oxford Golf Club.
With origins of golf first played on the original Cowley Marsh site as far back as 1873, it represents one of the oldest golf clubs in England, with the original golf club to take precedence here being the Oxford University Golf Club in 1875. One of the many golfers that have walked our fairways include the likes of Viscount Nuffield himself, William Morris. 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. Oxford Gold Club is available to golfers of all standards, and a warm welcome is extended to both members and visitors alike.
Stars Director Russell Shrives said, “We’re always looking to expand our presence across the county, and bring in fans of other sports to watch our games. This partnership not only better exposes us to the golfing community, but also brings us closer to one of the key elements of Oxford’s sporting heritage. It is also a positive move forward in the development of the Oxfordshire United alliance. I might even pop down for a round or 2 myself”.
Stephen Nicholson, General Manager of Oxford Golf Club said, “Oxford Golf Club is the oldest serving golf course in Oxfordshire, yet many people don’t even realise we exist. By forming partnerships with local sports clubs and businesses we are aligning our heritage and forward thinking brand to those of our partners and expanding our presence and profile in an attempt to help ‘grow the game’. Working with like-minded partners like Oxford City Stars, it represents a win-win for both clubs and I am sure our members will enjoy making the most of what this partnership has to offer”.
The reciprocal arrangement will mean great offers will be available enabling Oxford Golf Club member to enjoy discounts on Oxford City Stars tickets, and Oxford City Stars reward club members (news on that coming soon!) to enjoy similar discounts when playing at Oxford Golf Club.
