What the club says: Walmley Golf Club is a beautiful parkland course where golf has been played for over 100 years. Founded in 1902, this pleasant parkland course boasts many trees & hazards to keep you on your toes during your round. Our attractive clubhouse is ideal for post-round refreshments with magnificent views across the course.
The course is located in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands just 8 miles North East of Birmingham in a peaceful and tranquil setting, which is easily accessible via the M40, M42 and M6 motorways with local accommodation available should visitors wish to stay overnight.
Fantastic course, well worth a visit, greens are like lightning and very true, great layout, only downside is there is a central point where about 6 tees start from, but not a problem, great course and lovely condition
As soon as you walk through the car park and see the course for the first time you know you're in for a treat. From the clubhouse view, the course opens up in front of you and looks extremely inviting and well manicured.
The pro in the shop was very welcoming and helped us with locker codes, pin positions and yardage markers.
Everything about the course is exceptional with flat tee boxes, manicured fairways, well raked bunkers and greens that were fast and true. I think the greens were some of the best I've ever played on to be honest. Some of the later holes we played, had just had their greens 'ironed' and were seriously quick. As previous reviewers have mentioned there are a good variety of holes with lots of dog legs and you need to think your way around the course.
We had some food in the clubhouse afterwards which was good value and again the bar staff and catering staff were friendly and helpful. It was good to see lots of people using the clubhouse and there seemed a real sense of community spirit there.
At £25 with a County Card, Walmley Golf Club is tremendous value and I hope to play it again. If I lived closer I'd be even happier to be a member there!
A warm welcome awaited us when we arrived at the club. The facilities were very good, with the starter making us very welcome and putting us at our ease. The course had seen heavy rain previous days but played very well considering. The course was a fair test of golf given this was our first time of playing. The whole group enjoyed the round. The views from the clubhouse lounge are very nice. Well worth a visit thankyou for the hospitality.
4* rating all day, it's not the most prestigious but it's for me a great layout other than 14th and 16th that penalise good shots with mature trees in the fairway. greens in July and today 8th Sept blemish free and smooth and quick :-) #TheBest also very receptive to good shots for me the sign of a great course. no bump and runs from 150yrds in.
Beer is always good and always a friendly welcome.
TeeTours society day £22, Tony runs a good shop :-) back in 2018 for sure. get some pairs events on Walmley I'll be back more.
Very friendly welcome for the jubilee open (July 2017)
Practice area for wedges only, balls from pro shop if required. no separate short game area but you can chip at the range if quiet.
Course is 6600 yrds long but you need to play a lot of 22-240 yrds tee shots and shape them into area's, drivers not required on many holes. Greens fast and true with plenty of break, somtimes more than you can see :-)
Mid section of the course is a little confusing, seems to be spaghetti junction layout with 3-4 tee's very close together and criss crossing.
Clubhouse and bar excellent and again very friendly, 100% back next year and hopefully with course knowledge play a bit more solid.
So many fine courses in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham, get them on your radar.

Well kept course , fairways nearly as good as some greens, tees well looked after and greens very true and in great condition one of the best courses we have played on

The practice putting green is excellent. It was surprisingly quick, but true to the pace of the greens on the course, so the 5 minutes on there really helped get the speed of the putts.
Its an open course, wide enough fairways, but lined with trees. The trees are fair, if you go in them, you have a shot out, but not chance of hitting greens from there.
As mentioned, the greens are quick and not easy to read, but fair.
The course is quite long. There are a couple of par 4s that i couldn't reach in two but actually quite fair off the women's tee (my mum was playing with us).
A few dog leg holes, where course knowledge would help know how far you need to go to see the green and some strategically placed trees on the fairway that Id know now how to avoid.
The bunkers were good quality all round.
An enjoyable and peaceful place to play and a definite course to sample as you won't be disappointed.
