to see what is acceptable.
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.

GOLF DAY CANCELLATIONS
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.
