Course was over rated, greens were terrible, fairways were like rough, the clubhouse was old and tatty also the people weren\'t welcoming. The green fees were too expensive and I don\'t think I\'ll be playing again. Score: 75 hcp: 7.1

Condition excellent. However, a very humdrum course. You have to hit a truly awful shot to possibly lose a ball. A good course for the higher handicap player who wants a course to themselves. PS the clubhouse was very tired and tatty.

Nothing special was expecting so much more, really dated clubhouse and not the most friendly of welcomes, course was ok but certainly doesn't justify the green fee

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!

What a lovely place, pro was welcoming and helpful (always a must for me) visitors changing rooms excellent with towels for after game shower. Course is truly awesome and your going to need a few rounds to master it. Only downside the greens had been freshly hollow tined and sanded so a lottery.

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.

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.

A gentlemens club with a golf course attached .As a guest of a member I was unable to spend money there and noted a wonderful difference in facilities between members and visitors facilities. The limited membership gives an exclusive air to the place and a feel of millionaires golf. The course is typical of a greenbelt affluent area course of the 60-£70 range, very decent but largely lacking memorable holes bar a U shaped par 5 and a scary final shot to a green uncomfortably near the clubhouse windows. The pleasure of the place is the stepping back in time ambience . Green fees with a member were peppercorn for the offering. Hcp 5

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.
