Staffordshire Golf Tour

The Belfry is the best known course in the West Midlands, but Staffordshire has some exceptional layouts that deserve acclaim.

Established in 1908, Little Aston Golf Club features an 18 hole course, originally designed by Harry Vardon. Apart from 4 holes, the layout of the course is the same as the original Vardon design. The course features fairways lined with mature trees, two lakes, and a lot of defensive bunkers, making for a difficult approach to the green, demanding accuracy, and ensuring a challenging game for all.

South Staffordshire was originally formed in 1892, making it one of the oldest in the Midlands. It began life as a nine-hole layout on Penn Common before nine holes were added six years later. 
The club moved to its current site in 1908 and six-time Open champion Harry Vardon was commissioned to design the new layout. For the club’s centenary five years ago it launched a new open tournament, the Vardon Bowl.
Such luminaries as Vardon, Harry Colt, James Braid and Donald Steel have all had a hand in the design of the course and their efforts are well rewarded at what is one of the finest courses in the area.

Beau Desert is a beautiful, often underrated and overlooked, heathland course with huge undulating greens. Your driving needs to be spot-on to find the tight fairways flanked by banks of heather and other shrubbery.

A round at Beau Desert provides a memorable golfing experience - from the intriguing short par-4 opener to the thrilling par-5 finale which requires a downhill approach to the clubhouse over a large area of more heather and long grasses.

In summary, provides heathland golf at its glorious best and no doubt if it was located in the Home Counties you’d be paying double the money. Provides a memorable golfing experience - from the short par-4 opener to the thrilling par-5 finale.
