Redditch Golf Club relocated to its present Callow Hill site in 1972 when architect Frank Pennink routed the 18 holes around a property that’s part parkland and part woodland in character.
Redditch in August 2019 was well presented; the greens were good and had interesting and subtle contours. The course itself is a mixture of parkland, woodland and more open holes. Some bland holes would include the uphill first and all four par 3's which were the weakest part of the course. The woodland stretch between 14 and 17 was the best sequence of holes, all quite tight off the tee, starting with a long par 4, then a short par 5, a short par 4 where you had to be short of the ditch off the tee, and a sharply doglegged hole at 17 where positioning off the tee shot was imperative. Ditches are a hazard on a number of holes including the signature hole which is the 12th, a nice looking par 4 with trouble left off the tee and a ditch meandering down the left half of the fairway and around the left side of the green. Of the Worcestershire courses I have played not much to choose between Redditch and Worcester G&CC but I think Blackwell and Moseley are correctly at top of rankings and probably The Worcestershire third.
