What the club says: The Brabazon at 7235 yards, par 72 is the spiritual home home of the Ryder Cup. Dave Thomas, the international golf architect and PGA Captain for 2001/2003, built the original course in the 1970s and its legend has grown from there.
The PGA National opened in 1997 and features extensive mounding and a number of water hazards which come into play on eight holes.
The Derby, at 6099 yards, par 70 complements the two Championship courses perfectly, providing challenging golf to all standards of players.
18 holes. Par 70. 6099 yards. Inland Links.
Good course. Forgiving enough for high handicaps but with some good tests for the lower handicaps as well. Lovely condition
(Round played: Sep 2017 - Score: 91 Handicap: 23)
Been on my bucket list for a while now but was never going to pay the full rate they wanted...
Fortunately they were doing a 40th anniversary special rate at certain
times of ?40 each so it had to be done...
Really enjoyed it even though the 4ball in front kept us waiting on
every shot for the first 9 holes...Course was in good condition but you could see it gets a lot of traffic
through. Some great additions to the course were the little Ryder Cup plaques etc dotted round to
remind you of what has gone before...
Would def recommend but not at the full price in my eyes.....?40 was great value for us though...
Played the PGA National as part golf weekend tour based in Litchfield - I can appreciate the challenge of the course with good spaces betw tees and the next green. Playing off 17 hcp scored 31 pts with 2 blobs.
Frustrating by slow play of golfers with money to access the £80 challenge but without the golfing talent required.
Some lovely water carry challenges.
Greens slick and contoured to create plenty of 3 putt scores.
I will be happy to have ticked it off my golf career but won't be rushing back, I prefer the GC to be welcoming and engaging not just taking money.
£22 for 4 pints ?
On the course we had the food cart show up once with only 1 sandwich available at the 6th tee and the request for a return ignored.
Passing through the complex store and in the bar area several times not greeted once so think it was about a focus on shoppers not the golf experience welcome I have received at Litchfield Golf n Country Club and Walmley GC. Will return to the other courses ahead of Belfry.
With as many Ryder Cups as it has had no comment on quality is needed
Facilities excellent but prices are high for food, drinks etc
Walking the paths of giants; the Brabazon is a truly beautiful course to play on.
I'm still sitting here, with a huge smile and fantastic memories of playing; I never thought I would ever have the privilege of playing on a course that has hosted the Ryder Cup on 4 occasions.
The Brabazon is a magical place, highly manicured, in pristine condition and supported by friendly staff who bend over backwards to help. I have played on a couple of championships courses, the Marriott in Worsley, West Lancs, The Emerald in Hill Valley; these are all fabulous courses which have been highly maintained. But the Brabazon is completely on another level; nothing compares.
I would love to play this course again, in fact everyday; a fantastic day out.
Hcp: 21.8, scored 119

We played The Belfry Derby course and found it in great condition and much better than we thought it was going to be after reading other reviews. It was a lovely course and well worth a visit . The Belfry set up is fantastic and our only gripe was the prices for drinks but the cost of the break made up for this as we thought it was a great deal. £114 for overnight stay including breakfast and a £20 food voucher including playing both the Derby and PGA course.

Course was nice but not as good as the other courses at the venue. Had a really good deal though and well worth the money.
(Round played: Jul 2017 - Score: 97 Handicap: 18.5)
Played both the Derby and PGA National both courses were in fantastic condition, my only complaint would be the infestation of little black flying creatures which spoiled the back nine on the Derby but all in all a brilliant couple of days golfing.
Venue was excellent. PGA National was a very good course with The Derby coming in as a good course. Would definitely recommend and paly again. Only downfall is the package deal brings a lot of visitors and golfers of not so good a standard slowing the pace considerably. Could do with more marshals to speed things up a bit
Course in fabulous condition
