Because of its central location and good transport links via the M6 and M42 motorways, Drayton Park Golf Club is popular with casual visitors and golf societies alike. The tree lined course is an extremely good test of golf, but is easy walking with short green to tee distances. So that 27 or 36 holes in a day is easily achievable without feeling too tired.
At 6473 yards off the white tees the course is enjoyable for golfers of all handicaps, although it is most rewarding for those golfers who can keep their ball on the straight and narrow.
Whilst retaining the character of the original James Braid design the greens were re-laid to USGA standards in 2001/2 Enabling the course and greens to be kept open for longer periods.
