Stratford Oaks is an 18 hole Par 71 course measuring 6232 yards from the white tees and 5377 yards from the red tees. It has been laid with USGA regulation greens that are manicured to perfection. Wide and long, they are big enough to accommodate a slightly wayward approach but fast enough to make you stop and think before putting out.
The cleverly designed course encompasses lakes, ponds, mounds and generous fairways and, whilst Stratford Oaks is an easy walk, due to its mildly undulating terrain, the challenge can be daunting, particularly when the wind blows. Meandering its way through Warwickshire countryside and conservation woodland, with trees providing definition between the holes, the layout avoids the up and down style that some courses succumb to. It is also a delightfully tranquil haven allowing golfers to appreciate their chosen sport in peace and quiet.
