What the club says: Walmley Golf Club is a beautiful parkland course where golf has been played for over 100 years. Founded in 1902, this pleasant parkland course boasts many trees & hazards to keep you on your toes during your round. Our attractive clubhouse is ideal for post-round refreshments with magnificent views across the course.

The course is located in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands just 8 miles North East of Birmingham in a peaceful and tranquil setting, which is easily accessible via the M40, M42 and M6 motorways with local accommodation available should visitors wish to stay overnight.

Very, very good!

Our Society enjoyed a splendid afternoon?s golf at Walmley and were impressed by the course layout and its challenges. Despite the brown fairways, tee boxes and greens were in excellent order and promoted good scoring potential. Some great dog legs on this course - we will be visiting again for sure!

Beautiful Treerific Course in Brum

Good all round course management and tee shots that really leave those tee boxes are a big key to this course. Big fast greens - stint 12- when we played yesterday apparently means that you don't just get to the greens, you have to play with good judgement and plan your approach. Make sure you hit your putts in a measure way. There are plenty of trees which make this course really tricky. There are bunkers that catch you if you miss those approach shots. I would use more iron clubs if I played it again which I hope I do. Surprisingly friendly staff for such a excellent club that has a well stocked club shop. The food was excellent and well within a fair price range. Don't do what our golf pro did and wear non white socks with your shorts or you will have to buy some white socks!

Superb

Fantastic course, well worth a visit, greens are like lightning and very true, great layout, only downside is there is a central point where about 6 tees start from, but not a problem, great course and lovely condition

Great Course & Exceptional Greens

As soon as you walk through the car park and see the course for the first time you know you're in for a treat. From the clubhouse view, the course opens up in front of you and looks extremely inviting and well manicured.
The pro in the shop was very welcoming and helped us with locker codes, pin positions and yardage markers.
Everything about the course is exceptional with flat tee boxes, manicured fairways, well raked bunkers and greens that were fast and true. I think the greens were some of the best I've ever played on to be honest. Some of the later holes we played, had just had their greens 'ironed' and were seriously quick. As previous reviewers have mentioned there are a good variety of holes with lots of dog legs and you need to think your way around the course.
We had some food in the clubhouse afterwards which was good value and again the bar staff and catering staff were friendly and helpful. It was good to see lots of people using the clubhouse and there seemed a real sense of community spirit there.

At £25 with a County Card, Walmley Golf Club is tremendous value and I hope to play it again. If I lived closer I'd be even happier to be a member there!

Very nice course well worth the visit

A warm welcome awaited us when we arrived at the club. The facilities were very good, with the starter making us very welcome and putting us at our ease. The course had seen heavy rain previous days but played very well considering. The course was a fair test of golf given this was our first time of playing. The whole group enjoyed the round. The views from the clubhouse lounge are very nice. Well worth a visit thankyou for the hospitality.

2nd visit still in outstanding condition

4* rating all day, it's not the most prestigious but it's for me a great layout other than 14th and 16th that penalise good shots with mature trees in the fairway. greens in July and today 8th Sept blemish free and smooth and quick :-) #TheBest also very receptive to good shots for me the sign of a great course. no bump and runs from 150yrds in.

Beer is always good and always a friendly welcome.
TeeTours society day £22, Tony runs a good shop :-) back in 2018 for sure. get some pairs events on Walmley I'll be back more.

Another Fantastic trip to Birmingham, excellent course

Very friendly welcome for the jubilee open (July 2017)

Practice area for wedges only, balls from pro shop if required. no separate short game area but you can chip at the range if quiet.

Course is 6600 yrds long but you need to play a lot of 22-240 yrds tee shots and shape them into area's, drivers not required on many holes. Greens fast and true with plenty of break, somtimes more than you can see :-)

Mid section of the course is a little confusing, seems to be spaghetti junction layout with 3-4 tee's very close together and criss crossing.

Clubhouse and bar excellent and again very friendly, 100% back next year and hopefully with course knowledge play a bit more solid.

So many fine courses in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham, get them on your radar.

-1 for last 6 holes, finally go it going but all too late #TommyFleetwood

This is a little gem of a course set in the Midlands. First time on and I will be back. Each hole is interestingly put together and not one you would say underwhelmed you. Attractive from the balcony afterwards when enjoying a relaxed drink following the enjoyment of the play. The team here are helpful and welcoming. Worth a trip.

First visit here and will be back. Beautiful parkland course without really a weak hole. Quite a number of doglegs with some holes needing shot management to be on the correct side of the fairway to avoid being blocked out. Greens were not quick but putted really true with some big borrows. Saw more green keeping equipment on most holes than we have on our entire course. Lack of food option on a Sunday pm was only gripe.
