REVIEW OF BLOXWICH G.C.

Dear Sirs,

Our Society played here on May 7th.

It’s a pleasant parkland course, and fairly easy walking (although I have to have a buggie – bad back.)

In general it seems to be well maintained, and the greens were in good condition.
That said, I just couldn’t get them.
Not the fault of the greens though, …… just golf being it’s usual frustrating self!

There are several ditches and ponds, and quite a lot of bunkers, so a course planner is a good investment (although at £4.50 it’s a touch expensive and it’s not the simplest I’ve used.)

These bunkers are in fact one of my very few grumbles.
Unfortunately I got into all too many of them, and more often than not they were virtually unplayable, with the sand (seemingly the type you find on a building site), being just a congealed
mass.
True, we’d had a bit of rain, but it’s for sure that they don’t drain and dry out quickly.

A word of warning, and a very serious one.
Some of the tees are perilously near to the firing-lines of other holes.
One of our group was a bit wayward and scattered the group in front three times whilst they were teeing off on the next.
Likewise, I was teeing-off when a ball dropped (hard) about 3 feet away! (They’d yelled fore but we barely heard it because of the wind - apologies given and accepted - no harm done but it’s the closest I’ve ever been to it!)

The clubhouse was originally a very big Victorian (?) house, which has been extended and modernised.
There are all the facilities you could reasonably wish for and the catering was very good.

Overall verdict?
Not bad, and certainly worth a visit.
I wouldn’t rush to play it again as an individual, but if our Society plays there again I’d be more than happy to do so.

Yours faithfully

John Stephens,
Stourbridge

An excellent parkland course situated on the border of Staffordshire and the West Midlands conurbation within easy reach of Junction 11 of the M6 motorway.
The course provides a challenging but very fair test to all standard of golfer with many natural hazards and well positioned bunkers lurking to catch the wayward shot. There are some notable holes, particularly the long par 4 9th and the par 4 12th both in excess of 450 yards. The five par 3's are all feature holes in themselves.
As a long standing member of the club, I never tire of playing the course and you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome in the clubhouse where our hospitality extends to all societies and paying green fees.
Come along and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

David Fletcher, August 2007.
Don't be fooled by the apparent easy start with a pleasant Par 4 opening hole.A parkland course and easy walking but even post the ravages of heavy rainfall in superb condition.
Long Par 4's,more Par 3's than most courses but all of them potential score wreckers! A good test of Golf for any golfer but for the low handicapper a minefield of opportunities to 'drop' precious shots.
Excellent and recently refurbished changing facilities complete with shower facilities and a warm welcome at the 19yh with excellent value for money food.
A GOOD DAY OUT!

A well maintained parkland course currently undergoing a dramatic programme of bunker installations (the sandy ones not millitary)!!
With little room left to lengthen the course, the improvements in club and ball technology are being countered with new bunkers which are tightening the course.
Greens are generally in good condition and can be extremely fast.
A number of well positioned lakes and dogleg holes can tempt the longer hitter to become greedy to their cost.
Try it.
