Enville Golf Club

An exceptional English heathland in the Midlands.

Enville Golf Club

West Midlands, England

Overview

The Enville Golf Club - Highgate Course is an amalgamation of these four endeavors:

  • Alf Padgham designed the initial 9-hole course.
  • Arthur Wrigglesworth brought the course to 14 holes.
  • The last 4 holes were added by 1940 by Horace Lewis.
  • In 1973, Frank Pennink introduced 9 holes.
  • The final 9 were added in 1983, taking the total to 36.

With superb practice facilities, Enville Golf Club is a solid 36 hole venue that will only get better with the appointment of CDP.

Benefitting from local knowledge, given the choice between the Highgate and Lodge courses - play the Highgate.


Golf Course Review

Enville Golf Club is one of the Midlands premier golf venues. Found in South Staffordshire, northeast of Stourbridge, the course is within easy reach of England's second city, Birmingham. To the west lie the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enville Golf Club History

Enville Golf Club dates back to 1935 when a 21-year lease made 9 hole golf possible on common land. Three years later it was extended to 18 holes. 9 holes were added in 1973 and a final 9 in 1983. At this point, two courses - The Highgate and Lodge, were established. The Highgate Course has been used for Open Qualifying as well as high-level amateur events.

Enville GC Facilities

The practice facilities are second to none. A 6-acre short game area is punctuated by 3 full-size chipping and putting greens. The driving range is 360 yards long and 220 yards wide with full grass tees and no mats! This is a rarity in the UK and a real asset for a members club.
