Corngreaves Golf Club, Cradley Heath. (1985 - 1999)

The club was founded in 1985.

Originally an 18-hole Parkland par 3 course, it was later modified to a 9-hole full course with two sets of tees. Course measured over 3,900 yards with a SSS and Par 61. In 1998 the professional was Carl Yates. Visitors’ fees were £6.50 weekdays and £7.50 at weekend. Full catering facilities were available.

Corngreaves Golf Club was a municipal course owned by Sandwell council. Corngreave Hall was used as the clubhouse.

The professional in the late 1990s was Carl Yates. 

In 1999, the local authority decided to close the course because rounds had decreased to 13,000, less than a third of the total for nearby Brandhall Golf Club at Oldbury, and the council needed to make savings to their leisure budget. The course closed on 1 April 1999. The Hall was gutted by fire in February 2010. Restoration work was undertaken and it is now being converted into nine residential apartments.
