West Midlands Golf Club in Barston, Solihull is just 5 minutes from Meriden, the centre of England, and the National Exhibition Centre. It has been built using USGA tees and greens which allow all year round play and designed within the 234 acre site which includes the 21 acre Barston Lake, and complements the undulating parkland landscape and is a modern English design with American influence. Mature trees and subtle contouring combined with tee shots and approach shots over water, including the signature 18th hole, 140 yards to an island green, reminiscent of the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.
Book a game of Golf
Our Free Pie & Chips offer has now finished, however all online bookings now receive £5 per person discount for booking online.
However, you can now buy the Pie & Chips (and other meals) for just £5 after the game, meaning you can still get the same deal, but you now have the choice. See the Special Offers page for more information.
UKs Longest hole!
We have a new Par 6 hole now open (1st June), which has replaced the Par 4 8th hole. "The Devil" measures 666 yards from the Yellow tees and a huge 725 yards from the Blue tees. Par 6 holes have only recently been introduced by the Council of National Golf Unions and this will be only the third in the UK, and from the White and Blue tees is longer than any other hole in the country.
We have a fleet of 45 golf buggies available to hire, all of which are equipped with the latest Visage GPS, giving players an overview of the hole prior to playing, and yardages to hazards and to the hole. You can book a buggy at the same time as booking a tee time on our booking system.
