What the club says: Opened in 1926, this undulating woodland course can punish the wayward shot. This course can either leave you happy and contented or frustrated to the point of storing your clubs. Finding the fairway is an absolute must as there are many meandering streams around the course. The 1st is one of the holes that requires great care. On an elevated tee the brave can attempt to clear the stream with a wood leaving a small chip onto the green. For most you have to judge the wind and slope before you swing anything from a 5 to a 9 iron. The 12th hole rewards the bold with a good birdie or eagle opportunity - but beware - a stray drive out of bounds and you'll be lucky to avoid dropping a shot.

Normally a good course but previous heavy rain has damaged the course and made it very boggy. Need it to dry out a bit before going again as there is no natural drainage.

Friendly course

Drying out nicely greens a bit rough, lack of facilities let's it down, but more than made up for by friendly relaxed atmosphere

Gave It a try as requested. lol.

Couple of mates have been at me for ages to come and play there. Tees are rough, very sparse and bare earth. Greens I think were quite poor, badly need cut I thought and the other guys who were locals agreed. Don't get me wrong, there are some nice holes esp the Par 3s. Disappointing in that we had to stay behind a really slow 3 ball from the 9th onwards. Etiquette not their cup of tea obviously. Overall not the best course in the West Midlands
but please do not let this put you off. Give it a bash yourself and see what you think.

First time playing here and was pleasantly surprised. Nice course which is pretty open, fairly small greens but in good condition. Watch out for the brook.

Worth a Visit

A Former Council Run Municipal Course now operated by the "Mytime" Charity Group. A tree lined course with some very good holes. Long par 4's, a few par 3's and only 2 par 5's. A good test for all class of golfers with ditches, brooks , long grass and trees to catch the wayward shot. Despite the very dry conditions the course was in very good condition. The grass on the greens was a bit long and hence slow (probably to protect against scorching) Recommended.

A ggod course

A decent variety of holes, wide fairways in good condition, some undulation. Worth visiting, but no club house, just the pro shop.

Given it's early April the overall condition was very reasonable; fairways are good and demand accuracy else some approach shots are compromised, although the greens are in need of rolling and cutting- very lumpy and no two the same in feel nor speed. A challenging course whether just starting or for the lower handicaps, and very good value for money.

Course wasn't in the best of condition, but that's expected in March. A couple of holes were on temporary tees and they were pretty awful to tee off on. The greens were very slow and could've done with a cut and a roll. Not bad for £20 on a Sunday morning but not a course I'd recommend.
