A group of golfers fear their 110-year-old course could close to make way for the development of 4,400 homes.
North Oxford Golf Club members have launched a campaign called GreenwayOxon, calling for ‘fair play for our green way’.
Campaign representative Chris Pack said the land occupies a ‘critical part’ of the green belt, forming a green space between the built-up areas of Oxford and Kidlington.
He said: “For club members the consequences are the loss of an important and, for some, perhaps their only possible source of recreation.
“It would also mean that club members would no longer be a part of a club that they have belonged to for many years.”
A spokesperson for Cherwell District Council said the council’s adopted local plan concentrates housing growth at Banbury, Bicester, Upper Heyford and the villages.
They said the council has recently completed a consultation on a partial review of the local plan, which will be submitted before March 31, adding: “That review has been a staged process over two years, with extensive public consultation and the consideration of 47 submitted sites.
“The seven proposed sites are the ones which have been identified as best meeting Oxford’s needs.
“These proposals will be considered in examination in 2018.”
