Course in good condition , small and fast greens, would recommend a game there for sure , staff friendly, pro shop advised us to go off back 9 which meant we had an undisturbed game. Will be going back to see if I can improve my score

First time playing what turned out to be a surprisingly delightful course! No formal tee- times despite booking but not a big issue, course was quite busy for mid-week and stuck behind 2 x 4 balls that ensured a pretty slow round over 4 hours. Course was challenging without being massively difficult and errant shots normally lost a stroke rather than being hugely punitive. Great dog legs and good par 3s - would highly recommend a visit. Staff very friendly and although only sampled sandwich before tee off, food experience best described as adequate.

Picturesque location!

SATNAV will take you to Sedgley road. Aim for the Barley Mow public house and your there!

Friendly welcome and very friendly members.

Course and greens were in a great condition some dry patches on some of the fairways but a minor point.

Didn’t appear to be a practice area but decent practice green.

Great bar and friendly bar staff.

Overall a very nice course and one I would recommend and will play again.

Course is interesting and challenging. Greens were good with lots of slopes. Really enjoyed my first visit to Penn GC. only negative was front 9 got stuck behind 2 senior 4 balls that were very slow and didn't call us through. All in all very good and we will be back for a open for sure.

Played here for the first time, was really impressed with this heathland course. Plenty of challenging holes, lots of hidden hazards!! Great value for money and friendly people. No hold ups, was let through a few times. Will try and play again soon.

my home course has signed a reciprocal golf arrangement with Penn G C, so on a quiet warm (ok very hot) Sunday afternoon, i went for a second round, course was in good nick if a little dry in places. Being very quiet I managed to get round in under 3 hours, it is a fairly easy walk on quite a small overall sized piece of land. The only quirk is that being built on "common land", you do get some quite random people walking over the course.

Penn was in decent condition but some areas are still wet. The greens were quick and hard so it was better to play it short rather than long. Overall we had a good day made by the sunshine ☀

Played here a few times, it is relatively local to home, but I never feel at ease here, there are some nice holes, but it always, and I mean always seems to play very wet. This was a bargain Xmas round off golfnow, so cant really complain too much, but in all honesty the course should have been closed. the temp green are a total lottery, some not even near to the regular ones.

I will come back, but in a hurry, and certainly not in the winter!

Played here before & did enjoyed it but this time it was not so good, weather was up & down with heavy rain (not there fault) was meant to play with a friend but he could not play so decided to play anyway as a single player, got stuck behind members so play was VERY SLOW, after 9 holes I decided to come off as there was 2 four balls waiting on the 10th TEE.

everything about this course is wonderful, the condition and maintenance from tee to green are immaculate! and you get the feeling of being at a "real" golf club whilst here but be warned if you hit a poor tee shot you will be punished! the heather that surrounds the most course will eat your ball for breakfast!! A brilliant challenge for any golfer especially someone like me who plays off 26. great days golf and was made to feel very welcome as well, will definitely be back to play again!! thanks Penn Golf Club!!
