Played a ladies invitation there yesterday. Great course- long but satisfying. Well maintained and greens in good order. Happily not too much water but plenty of bunkers to challenge you !
Catering also superb and excellent value. Will definitely play again.

Don't rely on any of these reviews. Course is not Crown anymore, has received lots of investment, lots of new trees etc, two loops are now reversed, new tees, 6700 off the whites. It is basically an inland links, the wind is a major feature. Par is 73 but SSS 74 - that's how difficult it is. Signature hole now the 1st 466yd Par 4, a sphincter tightener of a drive off the whites if you're going to get a par. Fairways will be narrower once growth gets going - the members worry it will be too difficult for societies. It is a second shot course since most greens are raised - driving requires length but position rather than pinpoint accuracy. Some green are devilish (especially 16 & 17).

This is a shocking golf course, simply a waste of money and time. the course is flat, open and poses very little challenge. im sorry to be so critical but i found it to be very mundane and tedious. Perhaps ok for beginners as the open fairways would be a big target for them to hit. very one dimentional in ervery aspect.

After undertaking a series of lessons with one of the PGA professionals at The Chase Golf Club my game was transformed! The indoor teaching facility is second to none and the tuition I received was invaluable. Feeling more confident with my game, I decided to tackle the golf course. I was extremely impressed with the condition of the golf course, the greens are some of the best in the area I have played on and the overall upkeep of the course is first class. Unlike the previous reports, the service I have received on all of my visits to the club has been exceptional - the staff are polite, friendly and will go out of their way to help. This course is definately worth a visit - I do not normally write reviews but was compelled to after reading previous reviews of the course and finding them so inaccurate. And a point to note - the club has recently been taken over by a local family so they are no longer owned by corporate organisation Crown!

Course was ok , a little long , which makes it difficult as nearly every green is raised so you end up using about 4 clubs in your bag for the whole round . It the sales service this course offers that let them down , played the venue on a society day about a month ago and we were treated like second class citizens compared to the members . Emailed the course with our societys complaints , and there after sales service is about as good as there service on the day . They are just another corporate golf course who want your cash , and then arent interested . Wont be re visiting .

Much harder than indicated, most comments are out of date. The greens are good - new greenkeeper - and it is a big challenge, especially when the predominant SW winds are blowing as there is 40 miles of open ground to the West!

The Chase Golf Club at the moment is one of the best up and coming golf clubs around. With new owners, a new head pro (Richard Stockdale), and a new Course Manager (Kevin Farrel) The Chase is going in the right direction. The Junior section is slowly decreasing in standard with their ownly being a handfull of single figure juniors at the club. But those juniors that are their are winning all of the major competitions and some of the full members dont like it. Well tough!!! We are herea to stay!!! We are the future of the club, treat us that way!!!

The Chase is has a good layout that can offer a great challenge. Further, the course is going through a development stage for the last few years and realistic, no improvements have been accomplished, only free relief from the rough. For the greens, last year they were the worst I have ever seen. This year, I would rather be putting in the rough.
If you are considering membership, I suggest elsewhere. The reason being, you will be paying more than the other local private clubs, but you will not necessarily get a game in. There are far too many socities and visitors, even over the weekend. Secondly, the amount of play is on this course indicated that there will be never nice greens.

I have recently joined this course 6 months ago. After playing the course on several occasions i have been disapionted to see that we have to play on tempory tees and greens especially when the weather is nice. After playing the full greens for the first time it made the course longer but the condition of the greens was in my opinion very poor. I just hope that this will be rectifyed soon, as this course has massive potential to be one of the top courses in staffordshire. The layout of the course is brilliant and offers a great challenge for everyone.

PLAYED THE CHASE ON WARM AFTERNOON 17/6/00. ITS A LONG COURSE WITH VERY UNFORGIVING ROUGH AND SEMI-ROUGH, SO ACCURACY IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN DISTANCE, ESPECIALLY WHEN PLAYING MEDAL.WHEN THE SMALL SAPLINGS HAVE GROWN TO A RESPECTABLE SIZE IT WILL NATURALLY GIVE THE COURSE A LITTLE MORE CHARECTER. I LOOK FORWARD TO THEN, BUT EVEN NOW IT IS A VERY GOOD TEST.

Under new ownership & recently renamed "The Chase", this course is quite imature with thousands of new trees planted which have yet to become a factor. This makes the course feel open & slightly featureless, however this is a false impression as it provides a very stern test of golfing ability. Improvements are already visible since the change of owner & looks set to develop into a fine course with excellent on site facillities.
