One of several high specification courses around the region, the West Midlands Golf Club is located between Meriden and Balsall Common in Solihull just 5 minutes from The NEC.

The Golf Course is of a modern English design with American influence, over rolling parkland with mature and newly planted trees and subtle contouring, it also has several holes demanding tee shots and approach shots over water including the signature hole, the 18th a Par 3 with an island green.
