Just as they do today, outstanding players of past generations have turned to golf course architecture at the close of their professional careers. Examples from a century ago include James Braid, J. H. Taylor and Harry Vardon, all of whom were active in the early 1900s when golf was experiencing a great growth in popularity in England. Vardon is responsible for the course at Little Aston, located in northern Birmingham. The semi-parkland setting boasts venerable turf that is so tight yet bouncy that a player can play two rounds at a time and walk away with a spring in his or her step. The opening and closing holes are framed by trees, while those in the middle are quite spacious; a standout here is the par 5 12th with its clever water hazard. Though once host to championship play, Little Aston has been overshadowed in this regard by the Belfry.

Bunkers, bunkers everywhere. An excellent course for low handicappers playing competitive golf but I certainly couldn’t play here everyday, far too many long par 4’s, all riddled with fairway & greenside bunkers. Excellently designed, well maintained & very challenging course. Stroke index 18 is a par 3 of nearly 200 yards!!
Fabulous

A very underestimated golf course. Always in great condition and is a pleasure to visit.
