We offer excellent 18 hole golfing facilities set within a landscaped farmland seting of mixed mature woodland which offers outstanding views towards Barr Beacon. Golf was first played at our present location as far back as 1935 when the Calthorpe Golf Club owned by one Frank Mills moved from Rocky Lane, Perry Barr to Chapel Lane. Frank Mills obtained a 25-year lease from the farmer, Joe York, who owned the land over which the golf was played. The course in those days was quite basic and consisted of a series of fields each surrounded by hawthorn hedges and sheep grazed on the fairways. In spite of the sheep golf was played, although some greens were wired off to prevent damage by sheep and cattle, and stiles and gates were in some cases needed to get to the next tee. In summer water was taken to the greens by a huge tank loaded on a trailer and pulled by a tractor.
