What the club says: Blackwell Golf Club was founded in 1893 by five men, four prominent local businessmen and the other the local curate from St Catherine's Church in Blackwell. The original course was built on part of the Hewell Grange Estate, owned by Viscount Windsor, and a local golf professional C W Cunningham was commissioned, for a fee of £1.5s.0d, to plan the original nine hole lay-out.
Today - Blackwell is a traditional English mature parkland course measuring 6283 yards from the white tees with a par of 70 (sss.71).
Came here with perhaps unreasonable expectations having been told it was the best in the midlands, but both myself and my partner agreed that all in all it flattered to decieve. Considering it was late November you could tell the condition was generally excellent, with some classy bunkering, carpet like (if frosty!) greens, but with a few too many so so holes, particuarly on the back nine, and an at times uninspiring layout. The plot of land at times felt too small for a golf course - some of the holes felt shoehorned in to make up the 18, with tee boxes and greens regularly crossing over each other. The clubhouse, likewise, is a lovely old building but the interior was in pretty dire need of an update!
That said, if you come not expecting the birmingham augusta, it is still a good course in excellent condition. Many holes are great, particuarly (for me) the par 3 over water 9th and a heavily bunkered par 4 10th reminiscent of sunningdale and more good holes than average ones. If it were at its best all the way round im sure it would be rated much more highly!

Chipping/pitching area at front near barrier and indoor nets behind pro shop just the job
I'll 100% be back for sure, great day out with Tony @ TeeTours £40 for this gem :-)
Sadly i played like a plank all day but two birdies 17,18 made it all better lol.
If your bothered about the decor in a club house then you may think it should be updated. I'm not, I pay for the course and believe this place is worth the green fee. All staff and members were welcoming.
Fortunate to get an invite to friends 50th birthday golf day which was at Blackwell. From what I have been told it is not easy to get a game there unless with a member. Bearing that in mind they were very welcoming in the Pro Shop and Club House. The course obviously gets plenty of care and attention as it looked and was in very good condition. The greens were slow though which initially took getting used to as you could leave puts short on a downhill putt!
Overall though a really interesting and challenging layout with a couple of shortish Par 5's and a few long par 3's one of which famously Augusta 12th was modelled on.
