Where2Golf says: 

The Lakes course at Blue Canyon Country Club is a whole lot more than just a warm-up for the more renowned Canyon course. Equal in length to its sibling, at over 7,100 yards, the challenging Lakes also makes full use of the former tin mine workings ... and that means plenty of water in play!

The fairways here, some surprisingly generous, others demandingly tight, are pleasantly tree-lined, at least on those occasions when water in not present. If you need any help to appreciate the challenges of the Lakes course, look no further than the opening four holes. This testing quartet all require excellent shot-making and good course management if you want to get your round off to a good start ... and stay dry.

Built around and between many natural small lakes and ponds (the former tin mine workings), this out-and-back layout also contains many pleasant (and a few dramatic) elevation changes. On the back-nine the lakeside holes are complemented by others that take you into some wonderfully natural jungle habitats, where rubber trees are found.

Many players feel the Lakes course provides an easier-going and more relaxing round than the Canyon, although it shares many of its companion's traits, and is not without its challenges. The last and perhaps most memorable of these is a smaller version of the Canyon course's famous canyon, which fiercely protects the approach to the final green.

Did you know?

The deep lakes of Blue Canyon's Lakes course were originally created by open cast tin mining.

The Canyon course shot to fame when it was selected for the 1994 Johnnie Walker Classic (won by Greg Norman). Four years later it was Tiger Woods who emerged triumphant at Blue Canyon to take the same trophy. The Canyon course has hosted many other top level competitions, most recently in 2007 (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Blue Canyon).

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