Edgbaston Golf Club - history

During the English Civil War, this was the site of Edgbaston Hall, which belonged to Colonel John Fox. Also known as the "Jovial Tinker". The Edgbaston Garrison mustered here in 1645. By 1717, Sir Richard Gough purchased the hall from Thomas Belasyse, 3rd Viscount Fauconberg. He was an MP for Bramber. He rebuilt the hall. In 1776, Sir Henry Gough invited Capability Brown to lay out the park. It was later home to William Withering.

Edgbaston Golf Club was founded in 1896. The course was designed by Harry S. Colt. This included Edgbaston Pool, an 11 acre lake. It is an 18 hole golf course.

The Birmingham Civic Society in 1936 convinced the owners of Edgbaston Hall, the Calthorpe Estates to turn it into a clubhouse. The building is now a Grade II listed building.

Edgbaston Pool

Visitors to Winterbourne House and Garden can access Edgbaston Pool via a gate for wonderful views of the lake. The lake is owned by Edgbaston Golf Club. Visitors to Winterbourne must leave by 4:45pm (when the gate is locked). There is no other way out. A gate at the far end of the path is private property for the golf club only. There is no access to Winterbourne visitors to that gate. Only members of the golf club.
