What the club says: Bordered by the industrialised West Midlands and rural Staffordshire, at Penn Golf Club visitors will discover a challenging heathland golf course set in beautiful, picturesque surroundings. Over recent years we have added many trees, and a few well placed bunkers. From our hand mown and very slick greens, to our lush fairways, we believe that our course is comparable to the most prestigious of clubs.

First time playing here and really enjoyed it , the greens were in excellent condition even with all the rain we have had they were fast and true .
Fairways weren't to bad , a little muddy here and there but nothing major .
A good testing course that I will definitely play again

Lovely heathland course close to Wolverhampton. It is open to walkers although it seems to be one main path that is used. Played late so the cost of the game was very good.

Average

Great welcome but went downhill from there,pro shop well stocked, course very average and greens slower then I was anticipating. A few nice holes but in all honesty nothing to make me rush back. It wasn't that it was bad just boring, Nice pint in the bar afterwards.

Interesting course.

have played this several times now and to be fair its quite good. My only concern is that as soon as there is any heavy rain it kinda lushes the bottom part of the course. My playing partner needed a buggy as was recovering from a broken foot and we were told to avoid several holes as muddy. Overall though in the summer I would imagine this would be a nice course as it is laid out fairly well ( just be careful crossing the main road ) lol. Give it a try and I am sure you will be glad you did. Another one to add to your list.

Christmas Disapointment

invited by a family member to play his course while visiting from Kent, although a good day the course was really wet and in all honesty it didn't do much for me, pro shop really friendly and a good pint in the bar

Nice course, members not very welcoming

I have played here a few times and the course is in good condition and well maintained. Staff in the club are friendly, however this does not extend to some of the members who seem to resent visitors. At the end of our game one of the Penn members apologised on behalf of one of his group who was very rude to us. Nice course but other clubs in the area are more welcoming!

Tricky Fairways

Too many fairways crossed over or were too close for comfort
Excellent greens and friendly service in the club house

Nice heathland course. Fairly open so you won't be punished too badly off the tee if you're not straight. Greens running true. Excellent value for money and nice friendly atmosphere.

Course was very dry could do with watering as grrens are almost impossible to stay on unless u lay up short and let it run onto them, wouldnt recommend to play unless your straight off the tee as the heather is so thick you can harfly escape in one stroke,

May Golf

Our May 4 ball was a toss up between here and South Staffs, we went for Penn as we had not played it in a long while. Sunny and Warm the golf was good and the course was average but for the price what is to be expected, a couple of nice holes but on the whole a bit of a boring track.

Excellent Track

This is a nice track hidden away on the outskirts of Wolverhampton. Beware trying to reach it though as it is accessed through a small country road that has massive foot deep PotHoles. The Course itself starts with a few challenging holes. Several holes when you are on the Tee you are hitting blind to so not easy. Overall an excellent course, shame about the access to it.

course was heavy but I guess we are in November. Greens bumpy and not running true but apart from that a nice golf course with some good holes and very good value for money at £13.

We were held up by 4 members who were extremely slow.

Bit damp but a nice course

Fairways are lush and greens run true. Looks like they have a bit of a battle on with drainage but the course was still in very good condition. Club house is a little dated but the course has nice variety and is a good test of golf.
