9 reviews of Great Barr Golf Club
I was a member 30 years ago and it was not an easy course then when it was relatively new, it has now matured into a very demanding golf course in excellent condition. Very friendly membership notorious for their hospitality.
I play here as regular as possible during the summer months the course provides a challenge to all standards of golfer and is kept in excellent condition throughout the year. Probably the best condition course i have played this year. The clubhouse facilities are excellent with a fantastic view over both the first tee and the final approach to the 18th.
Played again after a couple of years, Course and particularly Greens in fantastic condition considering we have just had the worst winter in 30 years, well worth playing.
I played Great Barr for the first time on Thursday and was impressed beyond belief. It's a stunning course with some very interesting holes. The first is a dogleg par 5, which I nearly birdied, moving on to very well guarded par 3. The fairways, greens and even the rough were cut to perfection. A shot into the trees is not always a disaster as you'll often get a good lie in the short cut rough underneath. The sand in the bunkers is soft enough not to clog up in the wet. I liked the 'S' shaped downhil par 5 7th. I was so close to making the green in 2 after a belting drive. On the par 3 14th we were treated to the sight of a fishing heron on the carp pond to the left hand side. The 18th is a long par 3 with a brook catching any short tee shots. A lovely course, certainly one of the best in the Midlands.
For the time of year the course was in excellent condition.
Played this course last week and it poor considering the reports i have read on this website, the greens were slow and uneven and the course looked scruffy, the 17th is the best hole on the course by a mile
This was one of the best courses i have ever played on. I was really impressed by the condition of the course, this course is very challenging and shooting level with your handicap is an achievement. I was so impressed that i am hoping to become a member in the near future. My favourite hole is the 14th, it is a short par 3 with water on the left and a bunker on the right. For all the golfers who like a testing round of golf but a thoroughly enjoyable day then play this course
I have played this course several times, as my good friend is a long-term member. The course is always in great condition. Course knowledge is needed, as allot of hole can lead to trouble if you are a little wayward. The greens are like lightening; you certainly cannot attack the green come rain or shine. Beware a real testing course but very nice.
A GREAT PARKLAND COURSE. GREENS ARE SUPERB. THE COURSE IS FAIR, BUT PUNISHES INACCURATE TEE SHOTS. THE 17TH & 18TH PROVIDES A PARTICULARLY TESTING FINISH. A LOT OF WORK WAS BEING DONE ON THE COURSE, BUT IN NO WAY DETRACTS FROM THE QUALITY OF THE COURSE.
