BRANDHALL GOLF CLUB members remain in the dark about the future of their golf course.

A senior councillor told the Birmingham Mail that the Oldbury course’s future had not been decided, despite Sandwell cabinet backing a recommendation for closure.

Councillor Marie Crompton said a final decision on the fate of the 116-year-old club will only be finally determined after a public consultation is completed, the newspaper reported.

Crompton’s comments follow a statement from members of the club who say they are worried the council plans to sell the course land for homes.

“This will be a six-week consultation for people, including members of the golf club, to give their views before a final decision is taken on the future of the course and clubhouse,” said Crompton. “We understand that some club members are disappointed at our proposal to close the course and they will have six weeks of formal consultation to present their views   to us.

“We are keen to hear everyone’s views and, following the consultation, a further report will be submitted to Cabinet early next year for consideration.”
