Nice 9 hole parkland track, pretty tight and holes are very close to each other.
Nice course. 9 hole, quite short but interesting. Staff very friendly.

I thought this was amazing ! They have two courses. One flat and one hilly course. Each is made up of 18 holes. We decided to only play the hilly course which was really fun. They use a water fall/river feature within the game, so if your ball goes it you have to fish it out with a net. - noting that the balls float and the river is pretty shallow and runs slowly so they are easy to catch. Finally the scenery around the golf is beautiful ! I would advise a visit !
Great fun. 2 courses, hilly or flat and a choice of 18 or 36 holes so 1 course or both. Well worth a visit.

UPDATE July 2018: Since my review in July 2018, I have found The Gym no longer meets my needs and that the small things that didn't bother me when I first joined have now persuaded me to look at other gyms in the city. For all my criticisms, there really are some excellent trainers there (Adrian, Dan, Marco in particular) and the value is fair. My criticisms are as follows: - The quality of the trainers is now *really* varied. Some are great and run fantastic classes, others significantly less so. - There was a period in which trainers didn't turn up and classes frequently started late and either finished early or ran late - The class timetable seems to be up in a constant state of flux which means that those of us who prefer classes can't establish a routine - Recent timetable changes don't seem to account for the fact that some of us choose the gym because it's near our workplaces but are reliant on public transport to get into the city in the first place - The changing rooms, while not unhygienic, could use a bit of TLC (issues with broken lockers etc) I imagine this remains a good gym if classes aren't your thing but to me it feels that many of the instructors simply don't like delivering classes and therefore the effort is not made to deliver good ones. Which is fine but maybe don't offer them then or give staff more of an incentive to deliver good classes. ======= December 2017: I've been a member of two "The Gym"s and this is by far the better one. Excellent selection of classes for the price you pay.
It''s rather busy, very few people around to help - I am not a gym person but had no idea how to use most of the equipment. They offered free PT sessions so I would have been fine if I could get one of them but they only bring out availability for that week and the evening times book fast so could never get a time after work.

Quite small and due to size and limited equipment it can feel very busy at times. Kettlebells again not proper ones - just bought from some gym equipment supplier, to match the dumbbells. They feel very cheap and are huge. TRX in a suboptimal position against a wall, in front of racks of dumbbells and over stretching mats. However, beats the city centre branch on cleanliness (by far! It's SO much cleaner), security (although it's on Broad St so weekend mornings can feel a bit edgy) and music volume (can hear it but not deafened by it - thank you to whoever turns it down at night so that early mornings are pleasant and not the torture of the city centre).
One gym I can honestly say isn't pretentious or sales motivated. The staff are friendly and helpful and generally always near if you need them. One thing I can highly commended them for is the cleanliness... The changing rooms don't even have that 'boys changing room smell' to them and they're frequently cleaned. The gym itself is also very clean, it's quite funny seeing big muscly PT's proudly donning feather duster keeping areas dust free! Top notch, easy to use, equipment with a good selection to choose from. The classes are good too, and start from early which is ideal for a workout before heading to work. If there was a steam room it would be even better, but that's not something of a need, more of a want. Overall, very good gym with brilliant facilities, a nice atmosphere and great staff.

Really good facilities for cardio and weights. Great value for money, but quite busy in the evenings
Was very sceptical about going here but I was very pleased after my first trip. Lots of space, great machines, and very clean. Genuinely enjoy coming here for my workouts.

We have run our Badminton Club, Birmingham Buccaneers here every Tuesday evening from 7-9pm for the last 9 years. The courts have plenty of space round them and well lit. The management are pretty friendly and helpful, its just a pity we lose a few sessions a year due to the college taking over the hall for exams. Otherwise very good.
Great place. I use it to coach the hearing impaired players basketball.

My wife and I come over from Kings Heath to take our 18 month old daughter swimming. It is cheaper, cleaner and far more pleasant than alternatives like Cocks Moor Leisure Centre. Granted you're not likely to find a space in the car park, nor are there any great refreshments to purchase. However you won't need to park far away and there's a large selection of coffee shops, cafes and eateries on the nearby High Street. The changing rooms are clean and pleasant, with some family cubicles too. It's also nice and warm. If you're looking for somewhere reasonably priced and nice to take your baby swimming, you can't really ask for more.
Generally speaking it's ok. The place is fine and the staff are neat. But had unfortunate experience of someone defecating in the main pool the first time I went there.

Good place for all sports. Gym, swimming,squash, and many more.
For local students it is a very nice offer, for Erasmus students too expensive because there is nearly no discount for their short period of time.

Nice Private rooms although they need fixing up and some music would be nice. Tv's need sorting because you'll watch something and someone in another room turns it over because its linked. 1 thing i disliked is that i left there smelling of incense sticks which was horrible! Worth going if you wanna shoot some pool late at night.
Fantastic place to play a few rounds of snooker i book the private rooms for better play

Good range of activities available no issues with staff but poor selection of drinks that are way too expensive
It's an ok billiards hall. Has everything required to play and socialize but that's all. It's quite dilapidated, old refurbishment, holes in walls, grotty toilet, old discoloured playing balls, etc, seen better days. Maybe a tired brand now after being around many years and run by disinterested owners (needs investment). That said it's very easy to join and get a table - easy access, good bar selection, use any Riley's in the country with one membership, sports events on big TVs, etc. May still look around for a more private club better run club.
