Shocking!

Played here today, absolutely shocking. I got told I couldn’t leave my car on the car park after 18:15 as the gates will be locked. No good to me as my tee off time was 16:30. Course and tees in shocking condition. To make it worst was the 20 minute wait on most tees. Ended up walking off the course on the 7th hole after 25 minute wait on the tee for this par 3. I will never play there again and wouldn’t recommend it. Worse course I’ve ever played.

Good Overall

Ok it's a municipal course and not a private club but given that the course is in decent condition and the greens pretty true. There were some hackers in front taking quite a few shots but both let us play through and we finished the round in 3.25 hrs.
Not a long course but a lot of holes with tricky approaches due to the many trees and brook cutting across the course. Choice of tee time, enjoyable and cheap.

Great value course if you’ve got all day.

Nice little course, not long but accuracy and distance control needed to get a good score.
Fairways good, greens excellent, bunkers okay.
BUT... Four and three quarter hours for a twoball going 5800 yards is a joke.

Great value course

I have played this course many times and always have an enjoyable experience. There are a wide variety of holes of varying difficulites. The course is generally fair and the greens are kept to a high standard. With green fees of arounf £12 on weekdays this is an excellent value course.

Slow

No problem with the course, just another slow round due to lack of etiquette or just plain decency ..4 hours 15 mins for a 2 ball.

Best value for money in the West Midlands

I was a junior member here 15 years ago and it's not really changed a great deal. Challenging front 9 then a slightly easier back 9. Great value for money that I have found hard to beat. The club pro Steve Ellis and his son Matt are 2 top guys who will always give help/advice if required.

Beautiful greens

This is a mature course with a variety of challenging holes. Played yesterday. The fairways are recovering well from the recent drought but the greens were exceptional, smooth and true.

Gentle rise and falls

Enjoyable experience. Course not too hilly nor too flat. Plenty of variety in the holes, not boring. Sited at a leisure centre which surprised us by the cafe being closed - at 2pm ?
That was the only letdown. But we would go again.

Good Value for money

Course is poor in winter - boggy.
Golf Facilities basic.
Staff friendly.
Course design is pretty good.
However, online costs are probably the best value around.
Overall a good deal

Saturday Outing

Taking 4 hours due to the very slow play by the groups ahead of use spoiled a good round of golf
How these players will react to new rule changes will be interesting - eg not putting the ball when it is inches from the cup amazed us
