What the club says: 18 hole course situated next to Birmingham International Airport. The course is well established with open fairways enticing you to use your driver off the tees. The greens are big and some span up to 20 yards, so a good approach shot is vital to leave a short putt. In the summer the greens are fast and slick to further challenge the golfer. The 16th is a difficult par four sometimes needing three good shots to reach the green as a strong wind always seems to blow directly into your face. A five is an acceptable score on this tough hole. From the tee you can either carry two fairway bunkers at about 220 yards or you can play left but close to the rough. The course offers a good practice area on natural grass.

Most Helpful Review

A lot of money has been spent here and new clubhouse and driving range are superb. Service provided by Tom in clubhouse was very welcoming and helpful. Course is tricky layout with small greens and later this year all the bunkers are scheduled for refurbishment so will return after that. Plane spotters will love holes 4, 5 and 6 beside Birmingham Int Airport runway.

Showing signs of the wet winter, and therefore a bit rough around the edges. One thing about the ex municipal courses is that the fairways are tight, making it a true test of your driver. Keep in play, as any visit to the rough will result in a lost ball. Club house has been improved enormously since my last visit a few years ago

Disappointing
Course in very poor condition. Very wet, water in bunkers and greens awful ( 2 on temps) dispute hot sunny conditions of last few days.
Played here last year and quite impressed, but won't be playing here again. Very disappointed to see how the course has gone down in less than 12 months.

Disappointed
The new gym has took priority, course needs desperate attention and they need to stop charging as if they are one of the best in Birmingham. Very overpriced and very disappointing. Marshall’s needed to stop teenagers walking onto the course damaging greens and bunkers. The management should open their eyes and sort these problems out ASAP.

Enjoyable
Not the hardest course around however if you're looking to get out and have a good round of golf with your mates then this is ideal. Great deal through groupon at the moment meaning this is a bargain for what you get. Course is in good condition, Bunkers could be improved by apart from that it's what you would expect for the money you pay.

Dont bother
This course is abysmal. I used to play here a lot when i was a lad and have some happy memories, however it was an average course back then and i thought that maybe in the 25 years that have passed it would show some improvement. I was wrong. If anything its worse. I played at the end of june when courses should be coming in to their prime however the greens were in a shocking state. There were plenty of patchy areas with barely any grass and then other areas of the green the grass was too long. They are the slowest greens ive ever played. Lots of areas where the grass on tops of the bunkers and around the fringe were bare and dry, resembling a texan desert. As for the bunkers themselves, well, they are awful. It looks like someone has gone round and tipped a bag of pea gravel in each one, they are not so much sandy as stony. Plus many of them do not have a rake in.
Tee boxes and hole signage are tired and need attention. The rough is an absolute nightmare, if you run just a couple of feet off the fairway your ball ends up sitting down with 2 inches of long grass behind it. You will need a scythe if you venture in to the heavy stuff, its up around your knees. Wayward hitters will need to take about 20 balls with them.
The course in general is just long, straight, flat and boring. Theres nothing that makes it interesting whatsoever.
There are far superior courses in the area for a similiar price where the difference in quality is massive. My advice is pay an extra £7/8 and go and play a proper course that is well kept and that puts the golfers experience at the forefront. This is not a course for serious golfers and this is reflected in the total lack of dress code. I saw one bloke playing with his builders work boots on aswell as others in trainers and cargo work trousers.
I wont be playing here again and you should avoid it.
