What the club says: Bordered by the industrialised West Midlands and rural Staffordshire, at Penn Golf Club visitors will discover a challenging heathland golf course set in beautiful, picturesque surroundings. Over recent years we have added many trees, and a few well placed bunkers. From our hand mown and very slick greens, to our lush fairways, we believe that our course is comparable to the most prestigious of clubs.
Great little course which is challenging enough. Cracking club with friendly members and excellent pro.
(Round played: Jun 2017 - Score: 87 Handicap: 19.4)
A warm welcome from the staff and friendly golfers gave a good first impression. The course was in very good condition and my only moan would be that there were some very slow 3/4 balls in front of me who simply did not even consider letting other players through, to the extent that there was a queue of several single players waiting behind them who had teed off some time after them.
There was also an extremely loud and heated altercation between dog owners and local landowners with a lot of swearing by both parties, which was bang out of order and very unpleasant.
Other than that I would probably play the course again as it was challenging but not daunting and quite different to other courses I'd played.
Having said that once you get past the first few holes and get to what could be considered the truest more heath land part for the course, it is very picturesque, and challenging too. The Par 3's would be difficult if they were not on temporary tees (Artificial). It isn't a long course for the most part, and a careful approach on the tee will put you in good stead. Most of the trouble is clear able with a decent 5 Iron. A word for the brave, if you do miss fairway in certain parts of the course, don't expect to be scoring well.
The greens although heavily waterlogged ran true, and were pretty pacey. It was just a shame that the weather conditions made it extremely difficult to play a normal game of golf. Balls plugging in the middle of the fair way, isn't great even if winter rules are in place.
I would play again in peak summer to get a taste in better weather.
Final Thoughts: Green Fee Paid was more than reasonable, course in parts was very nice, (Similar to Enville but not to the standard), however I wouldn't be rushing back to play there in the immediate future
Nice course, but found it all too hard. Friendly staff and nice club room.

(Round played: Apr 2016 - Score: 97 Handicap: 21.6)
Excellent greens! Course was wet but still enjoyable to play. Very good food and bar
It is worth adding that the Club has also benefitted recently from a new catering team which now produces fantastic food with good variety and excellent value.
Penn is a welcoming, friendly Club with a great Membership and is well worth playing or joining.
