A Lichfield golf club is showcasing its clubhouse and holes after teaming up with a local business to create videos giving a birds-eye view of the new facilities.

With the HS2 line running through the existing course, Whittington Heath Golf Club has been remodelled.

Lichfield-based Townhouse Communications has produced new promotional videos using drone flythroughs of each hole to help showcase the new-look club.

The videos are designed to promote the course but also help players understand the holes better and improve their scores.

Whittington Heath Golf Club’s general manager Colin White said:

“The drone films of each hole will be useful to golfers as they plan their rounds, especially those new to the course.

“Many top courses have invested in drones which has really helped players understand the nuances of each hole.

“This will be a really attractive asset to both members and visitors and confirms Whittington’s position as one of the best heathland courses in the UK.”

The new clubhouse also features in one of the videos, having been built to replace one demolished to make way for the high speed rail line.

Mr White added:

“The video really brings the new and wonderful clubhouse and our beautiful course to life.

“We are very proud of our new clubhouse and the drone footage really shows off not just its splendour, but the spectacular views across the Trent Valley.”

Julian Fisher, director of Townhouse Communications, said:

“The Whittington course is among the most stunning locations in the region and the views across the Trent Valley from the clubhouse are spectacular.

“It’s not until you see things from a different angle or perspective that you really appreciate them and capturing the course from above via the drone was a privilege.”
