In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“Perhaps the finest of parkland layouts to be found in the UK, Little Aston’s graceful design is neither over-bunkered nor severe. The many fine two-shot holes include a good mix of plateau and ground-level greens, and the backdrop of silver birch and rhododendrons must be awesome at the right time of year. No one in their right mind seeks a parkland course when visiting the UK but this warrants an exception. Cross bunkers protruding well into the fairway at the 3rd, 6th, 10th, 14th, 15th and superb Home hole give this course a flair that is more than a match for several of the better known heathland venues. It’s amazing what sticking hazards in the direct line of play does for lending a course playing interest!.”
Little Aston received a score of 6 out of 10 from Tom Doak, and a 5, 6 and 7 from his three co-authors.
