Copsewood Grange, formerly Marconi Golf Club, was formed in the 1920s by employees of GEC. The company had taken over the Grange House estate for the construction of its factory and housing for employees. The employees constructed the course around the historic Grange House.
Copsewood's claim to fame was its use as a set for the film The Italian Job, where a deep sewage system built under the course served as Italian sewage tunnels for the minis to escape through. Thankfully the sewage system is not in evidence today, but the mature parkland around the estate very much is.
With a par of 72 and SSS of 71, Copsewood golf course requires good driving and accurate putting to score well. It's fairways are fairly narrow and trees often line both sides. The River Sowe wends its way through the course and comes in to play on a few of the holes. Look out for it particularly on the 8th where your drive needs to cross it twice to make it safely to the landing area.
