Edgbaston Golf Club

West Midlands, England

Overview

Edgbaston Golf Club dates back to 1896 but the current course is a Harry Colt designed parkland from 1937. The course never really matured before the Second World War and it was fully re-opened in 1950.

A difficult course due to its smallish greens, runoff areas and undulations, it plays to a par of 69 and tips the scales at just 6,128 yards from the tips. The routing is original Harry Colt.

The course prides itself on its pristine condition. Recent work to overhaul all of the bunkers has been completed and restored to their original Harry Colt aesthetic in 2019.
