What a gem of a course

Played olton with some pals last week and must say I was very impressed. Really well presented, well manicured gold course. It was a challenge but one we all really enjoyed. Lovely little club house, great food and ale. We will be visiting again. Big thumbs up!

Business Tigers Spring Challenge Trophy

Our first major outing of the year was the Spring Challenge Trophy at Olton now visited 3 years in a row. The guys like this course as its wide, open and beautifully maintained with challenging greens. The team that hosts us (Steve, Frank & Chrissie) are nice welcoming people and we appreciate as non members being allowed each year to visit them.

Really good putting surfaces!

Having not played at Olton for a good few years I played fairly recently and was amazed at the changes that had been made. The bunkers in particular made the course quite a challenge but what a well presented golf course. The greens were running really slick and true and definitely some of the best I've putted on for quite some time. A real friendly club and I will be revisiting with friends next season.

Stunning improvements

This course is well worth a visit. Greens are perfect and quite slick. The club have recently redesigned the greenside bunkers to quite a dramatic effect. No long walks between green and tee but they have some buggies if you can't manage the walk
Clubhouse nice and food homely

Course and hospitality let down by roganisation

A group of us have played this course for many years at least once annually - yesterday we were VERY disappointed to find a slow 5 ball (is that breaking the rules!?!) playing in front of our leading group, 2 temporary greens with no pre advice from the club before playing or signs on the tees to warn us and visitors showers broken and marked "out of bounds" again with no pre advice or offer to use the members showers as a temporary alternative - goodbyeee Olton

Tough Course

The course overall played well but extremely long for my game. When you got to the greens they were very hard to read and play which certainly added a certain amount of frustration, although I appreciate I may have been punching above my weight related to my ability. That said it has a fine reputation deservedly so. Clubhouse and food very nice. Certainly worth a visit if you like a challenge.
