Whittington Heath GC

Course Overview

There is no doubt that Whittington Heath (described by Martin Hawtree as “classic golfing country”) is a club with character, the more you play the course, the more you wish to, and in the clubhouse you will find an atmosphere of friendliness so necessary to complete a perfect day.

Our superbly well-drained course is playable all year round. The trademark heather and gorse is tough enough to provide a challenge, but forgiving enough to offer no more than fair punishment. There is always a feeling of total fulfilment and satisfaction when the handicap golfer completes a sub-par round and when you get it right, you have every reason to feel pleased with yourself.

There’s always something to test your handicap. A narrow fairway to drive into; rough that might mean a sideways recovery; and greens with subtle borrows that could mean the difference between a birdie and a four-foot par saver. Round-by-round, the different challenges ensure you’ll never tire of playing Whittington Heath.

High Speed Rail (HS2)

With the decision that HS2 was being routed through the centre of the course we have had to make major changes. We have 5 brand new holes and re configuration of the existing holes. The new course opened in April 2022.

Heathland Regeneration

The course development plan is based on the vision of ‘restoring our heathland heritage’. With support from many organisations including Natural England, The Forestry Commission, Staffordshire Wildlife, Lichfield District Council, Jonathan Gaunt(Course Architect) and Johns Associates(Course Ecologist) the plan looks at the many ecological aspects of the course and its environment. We have approval from the Forestry Commission to restore large areas of heather and heathland through the legal and managed removal of trees.
