Little Aston has a reputation as one of the UK’s finest inland courses. Voted number 41 in England by Golf World in 2015, the course also boasts the position of highest placed parkland course in those rankings.
The course was designed in 1908 by 6-time Open Champion Harry Vardon and later re-modelled by Harry Colt. There have of course been minor alterations since then but the main features remain with the exception of the 17th hole where the green in 2006 was moved into the lake.
The course measures 6813 yards, an ideal length for a course that caters for golfers of varying degrees of proficiency. The holes are sporting and call for all kinds of play and the greens, are, in normal conditions, almost perfect. There are a fair proportion of good two shot holes, several drive and pitch holes and three one shot holes, a combination of ingredients which make for ideal golf.
The Club has over the years hosted many major tournaments both Amateur and Professional. These include the English Amateur, the Brabazon Trophy and British Boys Championships, the Ladies British Open Amateur Championship, the English Ladies Amateur and Strokeplay Championships and the Dunlop Masters Professional Tournament.
In recent years, Little Aston was a host venue for The Open Regional Qualifying Series 2013-17, the LGU Ladies Home Internationals in 2017 and the 2018 PGA Club Professional Championship.
Although a traditional members Club, Little Aston extends a warm welcome to Societies and Visitors throughout the year.
