Open Competitions


If you haven’t played at Tadmarton Heath then you are in for a treat, our range of Opens offer the perfect, competitive opportunity. The golf is down to you but we will provide a challenging course, in tip-top condition, with plenty of gorse. The greens are quick and true, many of the bunkers have been remodelled and we can offer a range of delicious refreshments when you have finished.

The Banbury Town Cup and the Beaumont Pease attract some of the leading amateur men from around the region while the Bache Hay Trophy is our top ladies’ competition. Tadmarton also hosts a national Fathers & Daughters foursomes event that has become increasingly popular since it began in 2011.

A new addition for winter 2018/19 is the inaugural Tadmarton Heath Winter Series, an exciting new set of events to keep the competitive juices flowing throughout the off-season.

The Fathers & Daughters Open Foursomes
Saturday 31st August 2019

The Fathers & Daughters Foursomes competition was launched in September 2011 to fill a gap in the market.
Barbara Round,  a former secretary of the ladies’ section at Tadmarton, has played on a number of occasions in the national Mothers & Daughters championship with her daughter Sam, the former Oxfordshire Ladies’ champion. She felt there was nothing in particular for dads and their daughters so suggested a new competition to be held at Tadmarton.
The 27-hole foursomes competition has proved a great success attracting players from all across the country with handicaps ranging from +3 to 36. Some of our regular pairs travel from as far as Lancashire and West Sussex!

Senior Opens

The Seniors Pairs Open
Tuesday 15th october 2019
For the Simon Bouverie Trophy

The Senior Pairs Open is in its third year and has proved to be very popular, with substantial fields each year to date.

Further to yesterday’s postponement (24.09.2019) thank you to all member and visiting entrants for your understanding. It was good for us to speak with so many of you, we can now hopefully meet you under more positive weather conditions in the near future!

A new date of Tuesday 15th October is now in place, open to all new enquiry and existing entrants. Whilst this is fairly short notice, we feel we need to take advantage of a gap in the ‘Taddy’ diary on the 15th and try to give ourselves the best chance of some good weather, rather than leave any later in the year.

We look forward to welcoming all entrants to Taddy in mid October.
