Overview

Little Aston Golf Club is found within the Little Aston Private Estate in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, England and is one of England's highest-rated parkland golf courses.

The Little Aston Golf Club was established in 1908 when 136 acres of land was leased and Harry Vardon called upon to layout the inland course. Harry Colt was then called in to address the bunkering.

The unique putting green earns Little Aston Golf Club a place in the Needle in a Haystack Collection!

Frank Pennink described Little Aston as the Sunningdale of the Midlands and the finest course in the area.

Tom Doak says Little Aston is so good it's worth leaving the coast and links for!
