A HISTORIC Midlands course has closed permanently because of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Staffordshire Golf Club in Wombourne had struggled to cope with a loss of revenue brought about by restrictions over the past two years.
Its owners admitted they were unable to guarantee the long-term future of the site, which had been heavily reliant on events such as weddings.
“This has been such a difficult decision to take after being the family custodians of this historic course for more than 30 years,” explained Mark Allen, director at C C Cooper (Lye), the firm which owned the club.
