The famous Harry Colt (4 August 1869 – 21 November 1951) was the designer and architect of the back 9 at Belfair’s GC and it really shows. The front 9 can be a challenge but the back 9 is a great deal more difficult with emphasis on keeping the ball straight off the tee. Superb course and a real gem. Well worth playing.

good course, greens quite slow but it is a public course.
the only trouble is the dog walkers, the joggers, the bike riders, the horse riders and people walking along the fairways was a right pain in the arris.
good value for money and our four ball got round in under 4 hours, not bad for the weekend

Belfairs is a council run course that plays very well as long as you keep it straight off the tee as most of the holes cut through the woods, especially the back 9! Can get quite busy but it is worth playing!

The course is testing on the back 9 due to narrow fairways and lots of trees. I enjoyed the challenge and had a good round. The leaves and acorns etc become a big problem at the end of autum so would say its more of a summer course but I would go back again

Tricky gem

Tight opening hole with double O.B, and what looked to be an easy course would bite you if you were wayward. Map your way around, driver on a few of these holes really isn't the best option.
Last comment really comes into play on the last 5 holes, be warned!
Cracker of a course, will be back again

A public course which is open to dog walkers, cyclists, and families having a stroll but it is well looked after and the greens were in good condition.

For a municipal course, there are few better maintained. Stay out of the rough on the front nine and out of the trees on the back nine and you should have a very satisfying round.

As described before this course is well maintained with the greens being good condition although a little slow. I wasn't a big fan of the gulleys running right across the fairways,meaning you quite often have to stand with your feet at various heights to the ball. Im assuming this is drainage channels, so come the wet weather will make the course drain better. As mentioned by other people the horse riders, joggers and dog walkers all have a death wish as they just jump out in front of your shots oblivious to the fact they could be hit. I was also a little fed up of dodging dog mess of which my ball rolled straight through! All this aside i found the course nice and challenging with open fairways to relatively narrow tree lined ones. I played with people of mid teens handicap which is alot better than me and all of us concluded that we will be returning to play more rounds here.

For a public course this is excellent however it is swamped with walkers, runners, dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders. People totally disregarding that there is a golf course and walking/running fairways oblivious to people playing golf lets it down a bit. Oh and no rakes at all. Good course itself though.

The course layout at Belfairs is pretty good with the front 9 being relatively open and the back 9 winding its way through the woodland so you have to be hitting the ball very straight to stay on the fairways! Greens are in great condition for a public course. The only problem is the amount of people that walk their dogs around the course rather than sticking to the woods or the open fields at the side of the 6th fairway which can get a bit frustrating when they don't realise your about to tee off and walk straight across the fairways. Can be a bit muddy in winter months and very leafy through the end of autumn.
