Wychwood Park is a new private community of 705 new homes set around landscaped golf courses, with additional amenities including a business resort that offers a 200-bedroom hotel, conference and training centre; Golf Clubhouses and associated community facilities.
With our strategic vision and commitment to comprehensive scheme delivery the first phase of this major mixed-use development was completed in 2006.
The design of the scheme successfully integrates built form with the natural environment to provide the local community with increased recreational access and amenity, and add value to the development. The new homes are grouped into five hamlets each with their own distinct character and identity both in terms of layout and architectural design. Architectural control is maintained by Countryside Properties through the production of Design Briefs for each new phase.
Many homes enjoy views of the landscaped fairways and also adjoin the course. The land-use masterplan provides strong axial inter-relationships between the various built elements to maximise these views.
Wychwood Park stands as a perfect example of our commitment to developing fully integrated, intelligently designed communities that demonstrate the utmost sensitivity to the surrounding environment. Many homes enjoy views of the landscaped fairways and also adjoin the course. The land-use masterplan provides strong axial inter-relationships between the various built elements to maximise these views.
Whether a resident of Wychwood Park or just visiting, the course is a wonderful community asset throughout the entire year. The landscaped fairways provide both the perfect setting and exquisite views from homes adjoining the course.
The two storey Clubhouse has been designed to provide extensive facilities for members in comfortable surroundings with panoramic views across the Park. Wychwood Park Golf Club opened to its members on 1st July 2002. With many residents at Wychwood Park already enjoying playing and social memberships, the Golf Club is already adding value to the sense of community being created.
In addition to golf, the Wychwood Park Hotel, Training and Conference Centre opened in February 2003. Following the contemporary style of the Golf Clubhouse the Centre provides 200 bedrooms, purpose-designed training and meeting facilities, restaurant and bar with fabulous views over the Golf Course as well as a gym with health spa. As with the Golf Club these facilities are also accessible to the Wychwood Park residents through a range of social/leisure memberships.
The Golf course is exceptional. It has been designed by one of the UK's leading golf architects and constructed to PGA European Tour Standard.
The modern construction methods employed by Countryside Properties ensure excellent playing conditions all year round. Work involved ground contouring and movement of over a quarter of a million cubic metres of soil, extensive land drainage, installation of a fully computerised irrigation system, translocation of biological sensitive grasses and wildlife habitats, tree planting, creation of a reservoir and ornamental water features, and of course the laying down of the golf greens, tees and fairway.
Although the course can host a Tour Event, social play has been accommodated by the provision of four tees at each hole. Adjoining practice facilities are second to none enabling all types of practice play.
Wychwood Village is the second phase of Wychwood Park. It comprises 315 homes as well as an 18 hole golf course and clubhouse, 34 acre Country Park with Discovery Centre that surrounds the residential development providing a natural buffer between the housing and the golf course, and a Village Hall. The infrastructure at Wychwood Village was completed in 2010.
"What has been created here is something special, a golf course of exceptional standard, so rarely seen being created in this day and age."
