Barlaston Golf Club has a beautiful parkland course bordered in part by the River Trent.
Situated just south of Stoke on Trent in North Staffordshire about a one hour drive from Birmingham and Manchester, the course is described as a “hidden gem”.
At 5831 yards it is not the longest of courses. It does, however, demand good course management due to the challenging layout.
David Lynn former European Tour Player and former Barlaston Junior Member commented of the Barlaston layout, “it’s a very strategic course and really makes you think. It taught me how to course manage and is a lot of fun”.
The development of junior golf is of major importance within the Barlaston golf programme.
Barlaston Golf Club is extremely proud of former junior members David Lynn (former European tour player), Simon Lynn (Trentham Park Professional), Simon Arnold (Greenway Hall Professional), Gareth Shaw (PGA Professional and current County Development Officer England Golf Staffordshire) and Darren Martin (Our own Professional at Barlaston Golf Club).
The junior academy sponsored by Knights BMW and established in 2011 has been extremely successful in attracting both members and non members to regular sessions on a Saturday morning. The academy which accepts juniors from the age of five coaches the various disciplines of the game within a relaxed, fun and controlled atmosphere.
Barlaston introduced in March 2016 a ladies academy providing a social meeting point and coaching for both beginners and existing players, for further information on this or the junior academy please contact Darren Martin – 01782372795 Option 1.
