Birmingham City Football Club
It is only in the last few seasons that the Blues have began to rid themselves of the tag of 'perennial under-achievers'. Birmingham's history is littered with disappointments and near-misses, and 1963's League Cup success stands out not because they defeated arch-rivals Aston Villa in the final but because it remains the only time they have won a major trophy. Promoted to the Premiership via a penalty shoot-out in 2002's Division One Play-Off Final after a 16-year absence from the top-flight, the Blues performed creditably last season and avoided the drop comfortably. Backed by David Gold's millions, it remains to be seen whether they can match or beat their highest top-flight position (sixth in 1956), but at least they're finally getting closer...

Copt Heath Gold Club
Copt Heath represents an enjoyable and challenging test for golfers of every level, requiring strategic thinking as well as some power and finesse.
The course maintains an enviable reputation for play on full greens throughout the year. A natural sandy sub-soil, good drainage and a full course irrigation system helps ensure the course is at its best whatever the weather.
Many of the original features of the Harry Colt design, most notably his renowned deep bunkers and subtle greens, are still evident today.
The opening is tough with the first six holes requiring either length or accuracy to ensure a solid start to your round. From the 7th tee onwards the course opens up a little and players have the opportunity to build a good score as thecourse becomes a little friendlier.
“Copt Heath is the home of to die for greens”said ‘Todays Golfer’Magazine in November 2013. We are understandably proud of our greens which play consistently well, with subtle breaks catching out any lapses in putting concentration. With extended run-off areas surrounding the greens your short game will certainly need to be sharp to score well.
