What the club says: The Arden course is one of the country's most spectacular challenges and host to a succession of international tournaments, including the 1997-1999 One-2-One British Masters, 2000-2002 English Open and the 2003 British Masters. It also has one of the European Tour's most distinct signature holes in its 18th; a Par 3, 202-yard hole overlooking the fishing lakes and resort.

The Aylesford Course; Golfers of all abilities will find the shorter Aylesford course a varied and enjoyable challenge. Kept to the same high standard as its celebrity sister, both courses offer a good chance that the friendly local deer will wander on to the course in this majestic countryside setting.

Forest of Arden is a really good course with excellent greens. Rough is challenging with lots of opportunities for balls to go into water/disappear. Bunkers could be better. Downside was no opportunity to purchase any food at the half way house (Drinks/beer only from the club bar).

Golf and food great

Really enjoyed the experience this weekend. Both courses were great. Had to think your way round both of them- Arden was harder but both very well designed. Greens on Aylesford had patches on - not sure if it was an infection but didn't ruin experience. Food for dinner and breakfast was superb and fantastic variety. Can't wait to go back.

Great course

Played the Arden course and have to say its a great golf course but very tough. I'm an 18 handicapper and had a nightmare of a round with 106 but at the same time really enjoyed it. The greens are lightning fast and I struggled with them to be honest also the fact I was all over the place with my directional play didn't help. The bar and clubhouse are excellent with great facilities on site and I would highly recommend anyone to play it.

Great Course but......

The Arden and Aylesford are lovely course. The arden especially is in great condition especially the back 9 deer park. The only negative I have and it's a big one! We got in on a lovely summer afternoon at 6pm only to find that they had closed the golfers bar so we had to walk through to the hotel to get a drink. Absolutely ridiculous, if they want to appeal to corporate users then cater for them!!!

Unbelievable Championship Course

An unbelievable course with superbly maintained fairways and greens considering the rain and wet that we had.

We played Arden twice, great course ... Range needs to be better !

We have played at Forest of Arden before so this time we chose to play the Arden twice rather an round on each course. We were probably a tad early in the season as the 8th hole over the lake was shortened while they let the main tee box repair itself. The rest of the course was mint, greens fantastic and bunkers lovely, cannot fault it and this is a proper course. The putting green, pro shop and halfway house also absolutely top notch ... however the range is absolutely pants and way too expensive for the quality of the balls etc. That needs some TLC. As usual we found the hotel hit and miss, food was great but waiting almost 90 mins for starters to arrive when we have pre-ordered 6 hours before is not acceptable. We will come back for the golf, but maybe not stay next time. Tip: play Nailcote Hall 9 holer down the road beforehand, what a course and ridiculously cheap.

Great Weekend

Stayed here for the weekend and played both courses. The Aylesford is a short but challenging course in great condition, and was good practice for us in preparation of playing the championship course the following day. As you would imagine everything in well manicured, the greens were in great condition and the fact I shot 76 on the championship course was even more pleasing. The only downside to the weekend were the bar prices which are extremely inflated! Will visit again.

Good length course, challenging holes and a really lovely area. Loved the huge old oak trees. I can imagine it is a real challenge in summer with the bracken at full length.

Good Track

First visit to the Aylesford and found it very good. The greens were pristine, quite quick, hard to read at first but very true. Rough kept short which saves time hunting for the ball but still managed to lose some. Very tidy course, some interesting holes, two par 5's so not massively long. Lots playing the Arden but fewer on this course. If you cant afford the Arden this is a nice alternative. Will come again.
