A decade after the golf club was founded in Olton in 1893, the club moved to Solihull but retained its original name. Routed on a compact 95-acre site, this 6,258-yard parkland course was shaped by J.H. Taylor, Harry Colt and F.W. Hawtree.
Played Olton in the autumn of 2018 and didn't have the best of starts as they did make a muck up of our booking. A parkland course fairly confined, with a few gentle undulations and with quite a few ditches crossing fairways needing to be avoided. Thought the par 3's were a bit weak but apart from that holes were reasonably interesting, although nothing stand-out. Greens were in very good condition and overall I would say worth playing if in the area.
