The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Two very well designed 9-hole loops, out-and-back from the resort centre, take you into some surprisingly natural habitats and ensure this is one of the best golf locations in the Port Stephens area. Excellent earth mounding along the fairways, impressive and highly effective bunkering and top quality greenkeeping all contribute to this US-style resort layout. However, where things differ from many a US-style resort course, is the policy of keeping the limited resort real estate at a discreet distance from the golf, and in retaining some lovely areas of swamp and wetlands, around which both of the flattish nines wander. Water plays its part on 5 or 6 holes, but with an absence of penal rough and a tree-line on many holes giving sufficient width to drive the ball (with some margin of error), you should experience a highly pleasurable round of golf in a pleasantly natural setting.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
