Situated on the outskirts of Walsall, family owned and committed to an ever improving full golfing and leisure package at this most sociable of establishments.


Golf – Maturing all the time Calderfields has a fairly lengthy examination in store,  a bit of controlled aggression with your driver is the best policy as you do need a bit of length but enough hazards are lined up to encourage a bit of calm too. The greens are large sized, beautifully conditioned and teasing too as some of the more subtle contours can prove hard to spot.

Around the turn are situated some stand out holes set around the picturesque lake and the surrounding woodland. The signature eighth is absolutely stunning with two water hazards to cross, including the sprawling fishing lake guaranteeing an extremely demanding approach. The 10th should be potentially driveable at 270 yards but has a rather unique hazard blocking the green from view by way of a large raised grassy bank flanked by sand.

The closing hole is a good finisher, a short par four, typically narrow and overlooked by the log cabins on the left, with probably Calderfields most contoured green to putt out on.

Play and Stay – Situated to the side of the 18th fairway the 20 log cabins come in double or twin format with modern en-suite facilities, flat screen TV’s and a range of play and stay packages. A great option for golfing/leisure breaks, they are proving to be a very valuable acquisition.


19th holeMore than enough off course charms to stay right here on-site if you are staying over. Calderfields enjoys a vibrant social side, seasonal parties, quizzes, curry nights and discos are always on the agenda, plus the club hosts regular tribute nights too. Check out the calendar on the website, and time your society trip with a big event. The Sunday carvery has become so popular that you need to book in well in advance.

Staffordshire Performance CentreLast year Calderfields made a big statement of intent towards their golf and retail side by recruiting top Midlands based AA PGA Fellow Professional Jamie Cundy. His task was to give the centre game improvement facilities, the likes of which they have never had before. It’s all ongoing and will culminate with the opening of a new nine hole par three course in 2019. This June, Jamie opened the all new Staffordshire Performance Centre on the premises.

This custom built indoor centre includes a large retail area, indoor putting green and simulator room with Trackman 4. Full gym facilities are there too as are treatment rooms and a new acupuncture room too. Adjacent to the building is Calderfield’s new driving range, set to open very soon, MG will be looking at all of the new facilities for a fresh feature in November.




Another level – Leamington & County

Leamington and County GC has the experience of over 100 years of golfing tradition combined with a healthy modern attitude to bringing new golfers into the game.

Leamington have undertaken some course developments this year too, a slightly altered layout now exists with a re-route and two changed holes which include a new 18th. A joint editor’s visit was required to check it all out, Mandy and myself chose the hottest day of the year to do it!

Nuneaton GC – 2018 style

The fortunes of Nuneaton Golf Club are doing rather nicely of late, a rate of progress to compare favourably with their famous son. Locally born Andy Sullivan played his golf here from picking up a club at the age of ten. He still lives in the area and during his downtime away from the European Tour is often to be found on the fairways of Nuneaton, still playing money games with old mates.
