What the club says: This popular Heathland course with views of Lichfield Cathedral in the distance is well situated in the Midlands, on the A51 between Lichfield and Tamworth (next door to Whittington Barracks), is easily accessible to the midlands motorway network and is close to the M6 toll road.

The course is a good test for golfers of all levels. The course wends its way through heather and gorse and you will need to keep on the straight and narrow to score well.

Great layout

Whittington is a fantastic course undergoing some excellent changes but still very worth playing. A great heathland course. Must visit. Hospitality is superb, food and drink along with service is top notch.

Fabulous Old Course

One of my favourite golf courses, burnt brown from heat wave, but with bright lush greens. Played today at probably its optimum condition.

Wow. A links course in the middle of England

What a fantastic course. Really lovely holes and course management skills needed. It is a real test of golf but it gives you a chance. Excellent conditions with greens not super fast

Lovely course in great condition. Pro shop extremely helpful and knowledgable.

Only downside are the widths of the fairways! Will play again soon hopefully would love chance to improve middle of the round where I was awful!
