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.

David S rated 4 out of 5 - May 23 2017

A pretty challenging course for a beginner like myself, but still very enjoyable other than slow play from other golfers!

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.

Average course. Some nice holes. Would recommend that you at least give it a try. Still a bit muddy in places despite a couple of days of sunshine. Give it a try though.

Having played Penn quite some years ago, I was looking forward to playing there again. Upon signing in, I was told I would see some changes, and that I did. However I would not say they were the for the better. It appears to be have been opened up considerably, meaning that a wayward tee shot is not punished as I found out, still having a shot into the green on the Second Hole. The course was extremely wet, to the point whereby I would not have opened the course for play, which is something that has dampened my view of the course.

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

george rated 2 out of 5 - Nov 6 2016

course was very average wasn't as good as the last time I played it which was 2 years ago . greens was awful not once did I have a true roll and was very slow . The 4 th tee box is terrible couldn't tee my ball up anywhere as there was no grass and the ground was uneven . I can say the fairways are beautiful but I go to play the greens not the fairways . The lady working behind the bar was very rude and very unhelpful .

A really good course and well worth a visit. Staying out of the heather is the key to a good round. The chances of finding your balll if you hit into the heather are very slim. The course was in excellent condition. Club shop was extremely helpful as we had never played here before. Gave good information and tips.

A nice course , BUT, still quite boggy in parts given a couple of days of good sunshine. Overall enjoyable and would certainly play there again. When I asked was told it closes quite often due to the weather when bad. Try it yourself and see.

As a Member, I play most, but by no means, not all of my golf at Penn and there has been a major shift in the quality of the course and greens over recent years. The layout is now more playable for all standards of golfers, but remains challenging due to its varied natural heathland layout and quality undulating greens. I never tire of playing here and love the great social side with the many friends I have made.
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.
