Would play again

A well laid out course although we did play the wrong hole after coming off the 1st green due to lack of clear sign The bunkers were hard to. play out of due to lack of sand but I enjoyed the round although me and my partner did not play to the best of our ability. Would look forward to playing again in better conditions. Value for money.

Unspectacular course

very flat, unspectacular course, not many signature features. Condition was reasonable considering the lockdown period. Clubhouse is very good, course is not very fitting of such good facilities.

First time playing anything but a links course in UK

I played earlier today after a rainy day yesterday. The fairways are in surprisingly great conditions. A few of the greens could use some work. But, overall, I joined a 3-some in the middle of the round and it was enjoyable. It has some tricky holes for sure. However, it also has some gettable holes if you hit good shots. The greens fees are quite affordable, even when you hire clubs.

Great game in the sunshine

The course was in excellent condition, best greens we have played on for a few months. But because it was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon the course was busy and we got stuck behind a four ball who didn’ t call is through until15 hole so we were waiting on virtually every hole. Other than that course was in excellent condition and will definitely return in the future.

Challenging course

We played a 2 ball late Saturday afternoon and found the course not busy at all, and we're able to cruise around at our own leisure, which meant we were not rushed but not held up at all.
The course played well for march and the greens were a little on the slow side but once used to them we were fine. The course offered a lot of challenges with narrow fairways that mean you have to be accurate but long, otherwise you end up in the tree strewn rough meaning you will struggle to get par.
There are a fair few water hazards which add variety to the course , so it's not just plain bunkers dotted around.
Overall it's a challenging course for a weekend golfer.

unrewarding exprience

played her a few times, greens are very patchy and bumpy, tees are in fairway places on some tees, kids running onto fairways from the back of the park, bunkers Stoney and not much sand, very wide and open and very bland course, is better than some municipals but only just, trying to do to much off the course instead of on it, good section in shop,

Too uniform

Course layout

Whilst wet conditions were anticipated given the recent weather, we didnt expect such a poor course layout. Holes 2 to 8 basically parallel to each other in a field separated by rows of young trees. No discernable difference or features to any of these holes. Layout on back 9 a little better, but a few of these holes also return to the front 9 format of up and down a field.

A deceptive course

The course looks like it should be straightforward - very level, straightish fairways, water that gets in the way a couple fo times and lots of bunkers. However, it is actually - and certainly in late November - a challenge. The fairways are narrow with quite a lot of out of bounds borders. The water is at exactly the spot where the average golfer's shot will land, so laying up is essential and some of the bunkers are reminiscent of WW1 trenches.

Wet And Slow but good!

As a friend and I was staying in Sutton Coldfield I looked for a round of golf on a Saturday but was challenged with a lot of other clubs stating they were members only on the weekend. However Calderfields offered a tee time. Interestingly there is a separate golf shop in the car park opposite the club house and it's well worth a visit, the guys were really friendly and offered good sound advise. As for the golf, the course was in good condition and some interesting holes make you think about the right clubs to choose. The only down side was the pace of play. We followed a 3 ball for a majority of the round who had a couple of teenagers that were taking a great deal of time and the round took over 4hours. We waited on one tee for 10mins which is frustrating. However that shouldn't put you off playing as it's a good course.
