Enjoyed playing this course, Bunkers could have done with more sand in.Overall fairways & greens were in good condition.For this time of the year greens could have been more quicker.Course was very quiet which suited us no body pressing from behind overall enjoyed playing this course.

Course could do with a bit of TLC. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our round and look forward to playing it again in the summer. Facilities off the course are excellent. Too much water in the bunkers was the main issue.

Course very wet in places only to be expected at this time of year. Clubhouse is really nice I just hope now they will give the course some serious tlc as it could be really good as it has lots of natural features, enough length for pretty much all the golfers who use it.

Very poor experience. Course is rough and ready which is fine for a cheap course but the bunkers are almost gravel pits. Were surprised to see a gaggle of local chavs walking their dogs on the course letting them run wild while their kids ran on a green and messed around with a flag. Then on the next hole more kids with bikes were playing in the bushes. Another group of golfers were unacceptably slow and showed no interest in even acknowledging us or letting us through. Then on the last hole people (not players, unless bright pink Saree's are now golf attire, even Rickie Fowler couldn't pull that one off) were on the edge of the 18th meaning we had to wait. You're clearly not there to play so get off the holes! Not to mention kids doing handstands on the first tee box as we walked off. Is it that hard for the club to put up signs and make sure visitors stay off the course? The only reason we completed the round was because the weather was simply simply lovely! Other than that it was a joke and not enjoyable at all.

The new clubhouse is lovely it's a shame the course is in such poor quality the greens were in poor condition people out walking there dogs on the course aswell as kids riding there bikes through greens and bunkers there does seem to be more attention paid to the money being spent in the clubhouse from kids party's etc rather than looking after the course and it's golfers

I had hoped that the improvements made to the course following it being taken over by the mytime charity group from B'ham City Council would have continued. Sadly not , the course condition overall was poor , greens inconsistent, fairways scruffy , tees in poor condition. The bunkers have always been awful and nothings changed. This is one of the more expensive courses of the B'ham group of courses and is therefore not as good value for money.

although we have played this course many times as it is so convenient when we go to N.E.C. it never fails to throw new challenges at us, a good dry day with a course that stimulates nothing could make a days golf go better
