Designed by Alister MacKenzie Walsall still retains some of the characteristic two-tiered greens and irregular shaped bunkers with an abundance of well established oak, silver birch, larch and other deciduous trees.
The front nine stars with a gentle par four and runs clockwise around the outskirts of the course. After the second gentle par four to ease the players into their round the pressure of a dogleg third hole and par three fourth start to test golfers of all abilities.
The momentum starts to build on the back nine when the holes turn inwards, zigzagging their way through the centre of the parkland course. Only one of the par fours in this second half measures less than 410 yards from the white tees and the closing three holes give a great crescendo to the round of golf.
