What the club says: 18 hole course situated next to Birmingham International Airport. The course is well established with open fairways enticing you to use your driver off the tees. The greens are big and some span up to 20 yards, so a good approach shot is vital to leave a short putt. In the summer the greens are fast and slick to further challenge the golfer. The 16th is a difficult par four sometimes needing three good shots to reach the green as a strong wind always seems to blow directly into your face. A five is an acceptable score on this tough hole. From the tee you can either carry two fairway bunkers at about 220 yards or you can play left but close to the rough. The course offers a good practice area on natural grass.

Enjoyable
Not the hardest course around however if you're looking to get out and have a good round of golf with your mates then this is ideal. Great deal through groupon at the moment meaning this is a bargain for what you get. Course is in good condition, Bunkers could be improved by apart from that it's what you would expect for the money you pay.

Dont bother
This course is abysmal. I used to play here a lot when i was a lad and have some happy memories, however it was an average course back then and i thought that maybe in the 25 years that have passed it would show some improvement. I was wrong. If anything its worse. I played at the end of june when courses should be coming in to their prime however the greens were in a shocking state. There were plenty of patchy areas with barely any grass and then other areas of the green the grass was too long. They are the slowest greens ive ever played. Lots of areas where the grass on tops of the bunkers and around the fringe were bare and dry, resembling a texan desert. As for the bunkers themselves, well, they are awful. It looks like someone has gone round and tipped a bag of pea gravel in each one, they are not so much sandy as stony. Plus many of them do not have a rake in.
Tee boxes and hole signage are tired and need attention. The rough is an absolute nightmare, if you run just a couple of feet off the fairway your ball ends up sitting down with 2 inches of long grass behind it. You will need a scythe if you venture in to the heavy stuff, its up around your knees. Wayward hitters will need to take about 20 balls with them.
The course in general is just long, straight, flat and boring. Theres nothing that makes it interesting whatsoever.
There are far superior courses in the area for a similiar price where the difference in quality is massive. My advice is pay an extra £7/8 and go and play a proper course that is well kept and that puts the golfers experience at the forefront. This is not a course for serious golfers and this is reflected in the total lack of dress code. I saw one bloke playing with his builders work boots on aswell as others in trainers and cargo work trousers.
I wont be playing here again and you should avoid it.

Good course
A good course to play. Varied holes, flat and fairly wide but the rough is a bit severe if you wander.

Getting better all the time
This course is starting to show its promise, bunkers still need some work and the rough is penal, but good greens and very welcoming.

Coventry rated 1 out of 5 - Apr 19 2017

Hadn't played here for a several Months Played On Wed Mid Morning. It was very popular but I have to comment on the (Non) Golf wear. Are jeans now acceptable? Several playing had them on. There was even one player in a Football shirt. At one stage Staff on a buggy even chatted to the offenders with no comment at all so I'm assuming as long as you've paid you can be as scruffy as you like. Yes I know it's a Municipal Golf Course but surely there should be resonable standards at any Golf course.
I liked the course because it's relatively flat to get around & if you enjoy Aircraft then it's ideal! However the greens are not good & the whole impression is that the course is slowly been run down. Shan't be going again soon.

Appreciate only a Council course and very cheap but some basic rules would be good. Group in front of me using buggies like race cars and driving all over the place. Also no dress code restrictions.

Not in bad condition given recent weather. There were several temporary greens and tees which was disappointing. Greens that were off looked perfectly playable ? Course a bit scruffy around the edges and , as always, the bunkers need real attention ,which is has always been a criticism of this course.

No frills golf course, a few temporary tees and greens due to the frost, greens and bunkers could do with a bit of tlc, apart from that then a very open and straight course to play.

Nice course. Bit strange watching planes land and take off alongside a couple of holes making it a bit surreal. Some challenging holes but an enjoyable round

Really friendly club with good facilities food and drink. The course played well with the greens being fast but a little unpredictable in thier roll due to some bare patches and disappointing that vistors do not repair pitch marks. The club is very relaxed on dress code and the cost is excellent - £11 per round!! Skirts the rnway of Birmingham Airport so can be quite noisy. Well worth a visit if you are passing.
