Est. 1896

Edgbaston Golf Club: Laid out in front of an impressive red-brick mansion (now the clubhouse and HQ for the English Ladies Golf Union) Edgbaston is another fine example of a quintessentially English parkland golf course. Trees of various types, sizes and ages provide good definition to the fairways, among them are some centuries old oaks and chestnut trees, as well as others more recently planted. The trees however are never too densely concentrated, making it relatively easy to find and play your ball should your driving be offline. If your driving is straight and true, just be aware of the cross-bunkers that straddle a few fairways. The gentle rise and fall of the terrain, as well as a good sized lake running alongside the par-4 12th, have been skillfully worked into the design by Harry Colt. Edgbaston's excellent greens are not overly large, accuracy in your approach play being at a premium. Although only a par-69, this is a wonderful course that will test your full array of golfing skills in a lovely parkland setting.

Did you know?

Edgbaston's splendid clubhouse, a Georgian red-brick mansion, was originally commissioned by Richard Gough in 1750, and was also home to William Withering (1741 - 1799) a physician and botanist. Edgbaston is one of Birmingham's most affluent areas, as you will see from the size of some of the properties hereabouts. It is also home to the sprawling campus of the University of Birmingham, as well as the county cricket ground of Warwickshire (also used for some of England's international cricket matches).

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
