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).

I played here recently in an Open Competition and was taken with everything about this absolute gem of a course. The welcome given by the clubhouse staff, the proshop, & the hands on club manager set the day up, & the conditioning of the course was absolutely superb ( the greenstaff are right on top of their game). If only our play had been better, but the tricky (but fair) greens caught all the visitors out. In the company of my wife I returned to play here a week later & we met a number of very approachable & friendly members - they are extremely fortunate in their choice of home course......

This is a premier course up with he best in the country. It was a great pleasure to play in the Open, even if we did come 40/41! The course was in superb conditions and the greens something else again. It was a thorough enjoyable day and many congratulation to the member, staff and especially the greenskeepers. Highly recommended.

Superb

What a great day playing at Blackwell today. The hospitality was fantastic from Peter and his team. I would put the course as one of the best I have played. Condition was superb and every hole offered a different challenge. Really enjoyed the par 3’s as they were a real test. The green are the best I have played on all year. Very true and a nice pace. They are very tricky to putt on due to the undulation but nevertheless still enjoyable to putt on. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Blackwell, so if your in the area or looking for a great course for a society. Speak to Peter I’m sure he would be more than accommodating.

Stunning

First time playing here and I was not disappointed one bit. The whole course literally has it all. Great mix of holes. Par 3’s as good as you can find. Bunkers are literally everywhere and so so good. Greens as pure as I’ve putted on. If you love golf you’ll love playing here.

Played this charming parkland course in late August. It was in great condition and has quite challenging greens. Shame that the old fashioned long socks with shorts rule still exists but that is the members’ choice and the website clearly warns visitors of this. Booking via the secretary was a friendly experience and the whole atmosphere was a pleasant one. I would most certainly play there again.

Fantastic course and service

Played Blackwell on Monday 14th September 2020 with my works golf society, the course was in absolute perfect condition and all the staff and members were incredibly friendly. The dress code is very outdated (some might say traditional...) In that if you wear shorts, you MUST wear knee length socks! Not ideal on the hottest day in weeks, as most of us opted for trousers but some of our group did dig out there football socks. Because of the dress code a few of us were worried that the club might be a bit snobbish, but it was completely the opposite. We were made incredibly welcome all day.
Would highly recommend. The course itself is fairly short of yellows - par 5's not really par 5's, but a great mix of tree lined, short fiddly holes and some holes you can open the shoulders up a little. Greens are pretty undulated and you needed to be on the right side of the hole to make up and downs easy.

Society Visit 21/08/2020

Even though the conditions (very windy) were tough it is always a pleasure to visit Blackwell GC and play this stunning course. The greens staff should be complimented for their magnificent work, 20 of us played and everyone without exception commented that they can't wait to return. The welcome we received from all the staff and the way we were looked after will ensure a date in the diary next year for certain. If you haven't yet found this hidden gem do yourself a favour and pay it a visit.

Four of us (2 to 18 handicap) had an excellent day, 36 holes on a course that was in impressive condition, particularly the greens, really very good.
Lunch was minimal due to covid etc but all we met were friendly, the pro couldn't have been ore helpful. Extraordinary value and we will return very soon. Recommended!

Worcestershire’s finest

A hidden gem within the UK, if you ever get chance I highly recommend playing. I am a county player +1 handicapper (not local) and the greens are some of the best I’ve played on. Staff were really nice and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed my day, will definitely be back to Blackwell Golf Club in the near future.

Amazing Course

I recently played Blackwell Golf Club and it was absolutely fantastic. Even though we have had a lot of bad weather recently, leaving a lit of the local courses closed, Blackwell still remains playable, on main greens (that run very true). It has shot to the top of my favourite golf course list! Can't wait to return!

Words from a guest to Blackwell

I have finally found the time to sit down and express mine and Simon’s thanks for such a wonderful day at Blackwell. It is always pleasing when the picture you build up in a person’s mind of a course meets with reality. Needless to say Simon was bowled over by Blackwell. As he said to me in the car – your 180 members really do have a little gem. 4th November 2019

Solid course but left a bit underwhelmed

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!
