Little Aston is a gem of a parkland course and is always in tip-top condition. But, be warned, it's pretty tight so you had better turn up with your A game.

2. Beau Desert

Heathland golf at its glorious best and we're convinced if it was located in the Home Counties you'd be paying double the money. Provides a memorable golfing experience - from the short par-4 opener to the thrilling par-5 finale.

3.  Enville

It's been around since 1935 but it is still something of a hidden gem. Enville's Highgate layout is an Open qualifying course and a quality heathland-woodland combination, plotted next to the par-71 Lodge course. Make a day of it and play both!
