All other training courses take place in the function room at Studley Wood Golf Club, The Straight Mile, Horton-Cum-Studley, Oxford OX33 1BF. There is plenty of parking. It’s about 10 miles from Oxford city centre in the countryside, so if you do not have a car you will need a taxi.

GETTING TO STUDLEY WOOD GOLF CLUB
Suggested routes by road

From London and the south-east:
Leave the M40 at junction 8 and follow the A40 for about 8 miles As you approach the major junction at Headington, follow signs to Barton and the crematorium onto Bayswater Road. Go past the crematorium and you will soon start seeing brown signs to Studley Wood Golf Club. Follow these for approximately 7 miles to the golf club.

From the north and east:
Leave the M40 at junction 9. Take the A34 south for about 3 miles then take the exit signposted to Islip. Turn immediately right onto the B4027 for about a mile to Islip. Continue on the B4027 through the village. About 3 miles after leaving Islip you will begin to see brown signs to Studley Wood Golf Club. Follow the signs for approximately 5 miles to the golf club.

From the south and west:
Travelling north on the A34 past Oxford, take the exit signposted Islip. Turn immediately left onto the B4027 for about a mile to Islip. Continue on the B4027 through the village. About 3 miles after leaving Islip you will begin to see brown signs to Studley Wood Golf Club. Follow the signs for approximately 5 miles to the golf club.

By rail: Bicester North and Oxford Parkway are the closest mainline stations to the venue, which are both approximately 10 miles from the venue. Oxford railway station is about 12 miles away. To get to the venue you will need a taxi.

By taxi: Local taxi services include Alpha Cars of Bicester (phone 01869 252525) or A2B of Oxford (phone 01865 477477).

By air: The closest international airport is London Heathrow, 43 miles away. It takes around an hour by road,  depending on traffic.

There is a regular bus service from Heathrow to Oxford. You would then need a taxi to the training venue. Alternatively, you could use an airport taxi company such as Oxford Airport Taxis to take you directly from the airport to your accommodation.

To travel from Heathrow to Oxford by train, you need to get a train to London then another back out to Oxford, so we would recommend the bus service or airport taxi.

Oxford City: There are also many hotels and B&Bs in Oxford itself, but please bear in mind that roads in Oxford can be very congested – especially at the times you will be travelling to and from your course.
