Beau Desert Golf Club
The Midlands is not necessarily considered a hot spot for golf courses, but Beau Desert Golf Club is one of the few exceptions. This is the Marquess of Anglesey commissioned Herbert Fowler to design the course and in 1913, Fowler completed the job; the golf club was formed seven years later.
“About twenty-five miles away from Birmingham, near Hednesford, is Beau Desert, which Mr. Herbert Fowler originally laid out for Lord Anglesey. Here might be one of the very best courses” wrote Bernard Darwin in The Golf Courses of Great Britain. “For the turf is excellent and there is a flavour of Gleneagles about it. It stands high and is pleasanter in hot weather than cold, for the wind can blow there with penetrating shrewdness”.
Beau Desert, or “Beautiful Wilderness”, is an unusual name for a golf course, especially for a course
located in such a manicured landscape. Once upon a time, the area may well have been wild and woolly, but these days acres of woodland frame this spectacular heathland course. Whilst not an overly long course, measuring 6,470 yards from the tips, the narrow fairways require accuracy from the tee. The greens are quite large, especially the 18th, and they are full of wicked borrows, so expect a few three putts.
