What the club says: Built in the late 1970's the Abbey course has now matured into a fine, championship standard parkland course measuring over 6,500 yards. Designed by Donald Steel, one of Britain's leading course architects the course has been extensively upgraded and lengthened in recent years.

The layout includes matured trees, lakes and on the whole the fairways are wide with the rough not too punishing, the picturesque 7th is a 192 yard drive from the medal tee with the green surrounded on three sides by the river arrow. The 13th is a challenging uphill par 4 drive between two mature oak trees at 250 yards with the green concealed out of sight at the top of the hill.

Rough in need of attention

Visited here in June 2021; played in a 2 ball behind 4 members. Waited on every tee, approach shot, appalling etiquette from the 1st tee onwards, round took just under 5 hours. Nice course but the rough needs attention, grass cut but not collected so you literally had to step on your ball to have any chance of finding it. Will not be rushing back to The Abbey, far better courses to play in the area, and members we encountered were the worst in over 20 years of playing, spoilt a day off from work!

Great course well worth playing..

Super course quirky in places in great condition. Second cut is good but make sure you stay out of the rough as it is deep. Greens are very good and should be fantastic once the grass stops seeding.

Looks fabulous this summer!

Always enjoy a round at The Abbey especially this time of year. The greenkeepers have let some of the rough grow up around the top fringe of some of the bunkers and between a couple of the adjacent holes on the back nine so wild flowers look really pretty. The course is in great condition after the recent wet spell and warm weather - testament to that is the amount of visiting golf societies. Met a bunch of golfers recently who travelled up from Swansea. Just think of the top golf courses on that south wales coast that they have on their door step and they choose to travel to Redditch for a 2 day stay over - says it all if you ask me!

Well done the Abbey greenkeepers! Craig, Andy, Sid and Matt!

The option of the 2 bars is a great move and the BBQ by the practice putting green (I recommend the Cajun chicken burger!)

I've played The Abbey many times. I shot an 85 with 8 pars today and still look back on the scorecard where the course bit me hard. It's never a push over!

Love this course

Never get bored playing The Abbey, every hole is so different, and no easy holes....there is something to catch you out on every hole. Take the par 5's all needs some precision driving so you have a good 2nd shot and not blocked out by a huge oak tree.
Course is in really nice condition. Greenkeepers are grrowing the grass around the fairway bunkers which is making i look really nice - but a b**tch if you end up in it instead of the and (bit like some of the courses in Lincolnshire like Forest Pines and Woodhal Spa but not as deep thank goodness!)

It's been really busy with golf breaks over September which says it all. Even bumped into some visitors from Royl Porthcawl who enjoyed it. Says it all.

An amazing Local Course.

This really is an amazing Course that sits almost in the middle of a housing Scheme. Easy enough to find if you use a Sat Nav. Once you enter the Car park and see the Course it really does look amazing. Not a bad walk if you sometimes struggle as only a couple of holes where you have an uphill walk. Some fantastic holes and they have just completed 3 new holes which are superb. Give it a try and you will NOT be disappointed.

Never tire of playing the Abbey

Proper test of golf! I enjoy it as it is not easy. No push over holes as there is danger everywhere. If you are visiting the Midlands - book a round. just 3 miles off M42.

The pictures on the website make the course look very good but in reality, we were disappointed with it. The course was wet in many places and lots of mud on the walkways, not sure what it will be like later in winter. Lots of water but not a lot in play. Rough was just a little too high, constantly searching for your ball when it was just off the fairway. Pace of play very slow, we ended up behind two groups of members who joined together to make a 5 ball!! Greens in good condition though, bunkers short of sand in the middle, ok around the edges. The course just felt a bit sad. Unusual layout with two longish walks between a housing estate. Did not use the clubhouse. May give it another try during summer.

Interesting holes, not driver off every tee. Greens a little slow compared to putting green. Good venue for corporate day.
