Fantastic Course. Sits quietly out the way in the middle of a housing scheme. Its a hidden little gem. Some great holes that have thoughtfully been thought out as sometimes tactics are better than brute force off the tee. highly recommended for anyone to try at least once.

The bunkers were out of action due to repair work taking place. The course was in immaculate condition. I have played this course on three previous occasion and have always found it a challenge. All the features of a golf course on display from water hazards to dog-legs.

The course is undergoing a lot of work on the green-side bunkers at the moment, so there are one or two temporary greens being used. I understand the need for temporarys but the size and condition of them was poor for a private club ! I would wait about month before playing again.

A fantastic course with some great holes. If you have not played this then you certainly need to. Sits right in the middle of a housing estate which makes it all the better as it is very unexpected.

Played this course a couple of years ago so knew the basic layout. Still a fantastic course to be fair. they had started to Hollowtine deveral greens so had 3 or 4 temps. The greens they had not yet reached were in excellent condition for this time of year to be fair. Highly recommend this one guys if in the area.

Sean G rated 4 out of 5 - Aug 11 2015
Lovely course with an excellent layout and range of holes. Some tight driving lines when stood on the tee but most holes open up further down. Not the longest course and you can still score well hitting irons off a lot of the tees. Course in excellent condition apart from the greens that had been hollow tined so putts jumped and bounced and didn't run true, which was a shame because the practice putting green was a joy to putt on (sadly that too had been tined by the end of my round). I'd leave your visit at least a week before the greens improve. I wonder if the cheaper deal on teetimes was because of the green work going on. I suggest you look at the club website diary section to check for 'course work' days and avoid them. Some slow play but friendly members happy to let you play through. Will definitely return when the greens heal.

Played in sweltering conditions but an absolute pleasure to play what has to be the best course in Birmingham. Fast and true greens, beautiful surroundings I can't say enough positive things about this place.
