The course is just on Old Milverton Lane, to the north of Leamington Spa, which is located in the middle of England, about 15 miles SE of Birmingham and 90 miles NW of London. It's not difficult to find, once you know how!
Access To The Course
Since Spring 2006 there has been a new access direct from Old Milverton Lane. This is situated about 600m from the roundabout at the north end of Old Milverton Lane. Visitors must use this access, you must not use the access via the BPAS Clinic, nor park in their car park. For safety reasons you must not park on the road, so if the course gates are closed, you will have to come back another time.
Just 200m from the roundabout, there is a small sign on a gate saying 'Quarry Park'. Please ignore, this is not Quarry Park Disc Golf course.
Road maps can be obtained via the web, but do bear in mind that the post code is centred just north of QP, so do read the directions.
Bing and Google have aerial photos of the course and satellite hybrid maps.
You can also visit streetmap.co.uk using post code CV32 6RW (locates just north of the course) or getmapping.com using coordinates x = 430988 and y = 267918.

You might also try www.goeuro.co.uk to plan your trip from anywhere in europe. The only thing that I would add is that if you fly to Heathrow for example, it will often be better to get a National Express bus from the airport to Coventry or Warwick, rather than a train which can be very expensive.
