Welcome to west midlands golf club
Great Britains longest hole, "The Devil".
The GOLF COURSE
The West Midlands Golf Club in Solihull, is a Par 74 course featuring five Par 5’s and Great Britains longest hole, “The Devil”. Hole 8 is a Par 6, 666 yards (hence the name!’) and 725 yards from the back tees. West Mids also has an island green, the final hole is a par 3 of 140 yards, totally surrounded by water, and is reminiscent of the 17th at Sawgrass, one of the most famous holes in golf!
We have an 18 hole course, with all greens and tees built to USGA specification.
This means they have a sand base with undersoil drainage system and they can be played on all year round. In heavy rain they drain very fast, and the course also has good drainage on the fairways meaning it stays open longer than most courses in the winter.
Our sister course Solihull GC is just 10 minutes away and you if you become a member you will be entitled to play at both courses under the same membership.

The course is in a parkland setting with mature trees and contoured landscaping, extending over 234 acres including the 21 acre Barston Lake, and has recently received a new fairway drainage system to improve winter conditions and has the benefit of the Lake at Barston Restaurant on site, which can cater for all types of events, including weddings. We also have regular tribute nights on and further information can be found on our Restaurant site the Lake at Barston.
