Review for Whittington Heath

Reviewer Score:


Whittington Heath (Barracks) is a good pick as a hidden gem. In fact the course wouldn’t be out of place at the bottom end of the Top 100 in the Isles. The terrain moves just enough to be interesting with fairways that are often crinkled so the ball can sit up or down to complicate matters. And because the fairways have this small movement, most of the greens have subtle little folds and rolls that take some skill in reading. Lots of quality golf here with the finishing stretch 12-18 being perhaps the best. All the par 3s are excellent and there’s a good mix of greens that encourage a shaped, run up shot. The only thing I didn’t like was a redone, pushed up, 6th green that sticks out like a sore thumb. The course would benefit greatly from tree felling to get the HEATH back in Whittington.
