This day will be limited to a maximum of 42 people so send your payments early. No places will be reserved until full payment has been received.

Founded in 1902, this pleasant parkland course boasts many trees and a number of hazards to keep you on your toes throughout. Over the years Walmley has seen many changes, both to the course and the clubhouse, the latter built in the mid-1960s. The par 71 course stretches to 6,259 yards and provides a fair but challenging test of golf for players of any handicap. A fair number of holes are tree lined - keep it straight on these holes or you're in trouble - and twin lakes come into play on the fourth, fifth and sixth holes. The attractive clubhouse is ideal for post-round refreshments and offers magnificent view across the course. The course is voted 15th best in Warwickshire.

I look forward to seeing you all on the 12th.

Please be aware that there is always the chance that, due to adverse weather in the days preceding a golf day, a course may be closed or have a trolley ban.  If there is a problem then, wherever possible, those with email will be informed and information will be posted on the website. However, it is ultimately up to you to check if a course is open or has any restrictions by phoning the club (not Steve).


For those of you who are members of a golf club, please remember to keep a copy of your handicap certificate in your bag at all times. This is just in case a course requests that we provide them before play.
