Hilltop West Bromwich Closing down

Whilst playing a round today, I met some members who advised that the course is closing on 1st November by MyTime Active. Apparently they had applied for Planning Permission for a 9 hole course, footgolf and other things, which is now not moving forward. The course was being cut during the round, but found it to be a little long even still. Greens not bad, but areas of rough were too rough. Shame it will be left to be overgrown soon and another course gone.

Testing course

Some long holes coupled with them being very hilly and ground wet after heavy rain, makes this a very testing and challenging course.

Some long par 5s mixed with some tricky par 4s make the course quite challenging, however encouraging you to test yourself. Hole 17 has a valley, which requires a long drive to clear the top of the hill. Areas of the course were quite boggy after the heavy rain and slowed the ball down quite considerably. Greens were quite good considering the heavy downfall.
"Next tee" marker pointers, Tee numbers and Flags with tee numbers on are needed

Sami

Decent course for the price and some tough holes , putting can be difficult due to lack of maintenance. But for a municipal course in very good condition.

Nice, testing course

Wide fairways so great for beginners like me. Leaf free! Ground damp so ball plugged quite a bit. Putting on greens quite good considering recent rainfall, however, shots onto green died.
Could do with direction signs between tees and sometimes difficult to distinguish fairways from rough.
Saying that, I will continue to play here to improve my game!

Tough in parts, but worth a visit

Hard going in places but some good views and fair value. Catering absent at present, so bring your own. Back 9 easier than first 9. Always worth a visit.

Hilltop is a municipal course which is in very good condition considering the hot weather, not a difficult course but that's only if your playing well. Staff are very friendly and will definately play again. Excellent value when playing on teeofftimes but a little expensive if not.

Veey good course good value for money, have to be accurate as missing the fairway almost always results in missing balls, also daisy flowers on the fairways make it difficult to spot your ball from.distances
