What the club says: Coventry Golf Club was formed in 1887 with a 9 hole course laid out on Whitley Common. The Club moved to its present site at Finham Park 24 years later in 1911. The course was designed by Tom Vardon with his famous brother Harry marking out the bunkers. It was formally opened in 1912 with Harry Vardon and James Braid playing exhibition matches. Over the years the course has undergone many changes and improvement, most notably to re-site the bunkers to combat the changing game.

Today Coventry Golf Club course is 6590 yards in length with a Par of 73 and SSS of 72 (white tees) made up of 5 par 5’s, 9 par 4’s and 4 par 3’s.

The course can boast a unique and varied collection of trees suitable for a parkland golf course. The various plantings have resulted in all 18 holes being tree-lined and very attractive to play. Set in 120 acres of leafy Warwickshire this aesthetically attractive, gently undulating course is a pleasure to play all-year-round. The diversity of colours throughout the year is truly amazing.

Coventry Golf Club has become one of the most attractive inland courses in the country and provides an exciting challenge to all golfers. It has over the years hosted many Professional and Amateur tournaments. The quality of the course has been recognised by the R & A who in recent years have chosen Coventry Golf Club to host a Regional Open Qualifier.

Course was still recovering from last years hot dry summer, a lovely club, it is next to sewage treatment works which caused an unpleasant smell on some parts of the course

Superb As Always

This is my 3rd time playing here and it never fails to be anything other than a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A friendly welcome is always received in the Pro Shop. Top quality food and drinks in the clubhouse are always at hand.
The course truly is one of the best you will find not only in the Midlands but in my eyes the country. Very well presented and it will challenge all aspects of your game.
If you?re looking for a game and want to play a top course without the ?Top? fees then Coventry really is the place to visit.

Interesting parkland challenge with a good variety of holes which keep things interesting. Trees either side of the fairway tend to punish anything errant. The signature hole really is a cracker!

LOvely Course

The course was in fantastic condition, but then it was a charity event that I played in. The fairways and greens were well maintained. Would visit again.

Challenging top course

I havent been playing well but was impressed with the course as usual. This is one if the best courses in Coventry as usual. I really love it. Course manage and you will do well. Finham for me is a risk and reward type course. I love the trees bunkers and found quite a few. Staff after the golf were friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended.

Golf society 12/06/19

Played here on 11th and 12th June 2019. The first day the weather was shocking, raining constantly and the course was starting to hold water but still very playable, we got a members guest rate which was very reasonable at £23. The next day the weather held for us and the course was in amazing condition considering the previous few days weather! The course was enjoyable and well laid out, I found the greens very quick but fair. The pro couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. This place is definitely worth a look, just a pity I couldn’t bring my A game with me on this occasion ???? Recommended ????

High Class

The 2 days before we visited there was plenty of local courses closed due to 2 days of consistent rain. Coventry held so well I was actually in shock, not one spot where there was standing water on the course.

Its a tight yet friendly course as all holes are treelined. However 9 times out of 10 - as long as you are sensible - you can get back out. I played as part of a society day that hand handicaps ranging from 5 to 36 and everyone equally enjoyed the course.

Not all holes require a driver and there are some very well placed bunkers and water hazards.

The greens were superb and whilst held a ball really well also rolled true - some are very undulating too!

A course I look forward to playing again!

Nice course, not too difficult but still a challenge

The club itself is nicely presented, not too old, but still traditional. The pro shop is compact but excellently stocked, with excellent advice on hand from the pros. They have buggies to rent as well as push/pull and powakaddy trolleys for hire also, none of which were excessively priced. £10 for the Powakaddy, which was in excellent condition and worked faultlessly.

There’s plenty of practice facilities, nets, putting green, pitching, “range”, all in excellent order and there’s enough to satisfy even the biggest of society days.

The course itself is nicely laid out, both with challenging holes and more straight forward ones. Some tough hazards to avoid, but also gradients that allow you to test your skills more...even a golfer as bad as me was able to enjoy it though as the course isn’t hard to the point where you spend half your time looking for balls. Greens are excellently maintained, as is the rest of the course, with various notices around both encouraging good course care and also actively looking for those prepared to assist in keeping the course in good condition, which showed their commitment to keeping the course nice.

The clubhouse has a nice bar and restaurant with nice food and a good selection of drinks, drinks are a bit pricey at £2.50 for a tall Diet Pepsi, but if you’re going to a clubhouse expecting to get cheap drinks, you probably shouldn’t be in there.

Very enjoyable course, members are friendly and somewhere I’d recommend.

One of the best courses you could hope to find in terms of course design, condition and the friendliness of the staff. Played here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The head professional Martin is a credit to the golf club as well.

this was a curtesy round played with two of my club mates and the pro from coventry. we were made very welcome and treated to coffee at the halfway house and in the clubhouse after a very enjoyable round of golf the course was in really good condition greens were excellent fairways were very good overall a very good course. rather only downside is the sewer treatment works right next to the course a little smelly and would be worse in warmer weather.

So Glad I Got To Play Here

Golfshake Team ReviewTruly fantastic course. Great mix of holes that enables the better player to score well whilst also
giving a higher handicapped player the chance to get round the course without getting "beaten up".
Not a weak hole on the course, tees and fairways were lush, bunkers were as good as I've played
for a long time and the greens were so fast and true. Will definitely be returning.
