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.

Make sure this is on your List

The Iconic Belfry Brabazon Course.
This is an amazing Course if you have never played it before. Its a long hard brutal Course if you are a mid to high handicapper but an amazing achievement to say you have played it. The 9th, 10th and 18th are all holes that are iconic and its a pleasure to say I have played them. I love the Par 3 11th, a difficult and long hole you have to be precise to land it on a fairly small green when you stand on the Tee. Overall I recommend this 1000% if you have never played it and 100% cos you will want to go back.

Lovely course

We purchased a round on a Sunday to celebrate my friends 60th birthday. The course layout is excellent and in really good condition. An excellent day. The only downside was the lack of practice facilities as they were closed due to the Master tournament the following week. Understandable though - I have used them before and they are immense!!

What a day!

A cracking day of golf. The course was playing long and the rough was being grown up due to the British Masters in a few weeks time. Had the privilege of watching Dan Walker, one of my playing partners, hit the most amazing 2 iron, 227 over water to within 10 feet

Great off course facilities, but courses need more TLC

I played the Derby Course and wondered if they ever actually tend to it, looked unkept, no ball washers, missing OOB stakes, tee boxes not repaired. Just seemed a course to spread the many golfers around the place. The next day I played the Brabazon which was much better (and should be) with much better tee boxes, manicured fairways and greens. Nearly landed the 10th with a 3W but hit sleepers to left of green and into the drink sigh. My verdict, play the Brabazon its a proper course, leave the Derby for the golfers wanting a cheaper deal. Play the PGA National and enjoy that. Of course facilities are absolutely amazing, but the prices are amazing too, but you're at the Belfry so expect to pay for that privilege. My other scores on here are based on the Brabazon not the Derby.

Derby Course - great value

Played course on a ?20 deal and for that it is great value. Arrive in good time as parking close can be an issue.
I hear that in prolonged wet periods it can be heavy going and you can see the areas where drainage can be an issue but after a dry week it was fine.
A minibus takes you to the first tee, thus avoiding bunching and onlookers, bringing you back afterwards.
Fairways were fine, though greenkeepers have a task in repairing divots, rough was light. Greens were quick and true. If you do have the option, keep your approaches below the flag ;-).
Overall the course was a good "hotel" course but no more.
The main bonus is telling friends you played at "The Belfry". Having said that, the whole experience does draw you in to want to play their Championship courses.

Windy but fun

A very friendly place to play - the resort is amazing. As for the round itself, the course is in good condition and the fairways fairly forgiving. A few hazards had a tricky placement but very manageable on the most part. The biggest challenge was the wind - 2 to 3 clubs worth. Very helpful on the front 9, caused a struggle on the back 9.

Iconic, historic, say no more

Fantastic set-up and always a great place to play. Price may factor but you get what you pay for. We played the Brabazon and in lovely condition for the time of year. Course is a great challenge for all golfers and fun to play. Facilities are first class you and you will fail to work away unimpressed.

Brabazon great, Derby not great

I went for the weekend and played the Derby for the first time and the Brabazon for the 7th time and as always the Brabazon delivered in terms of hole layouts, the famous holes and general upkeep was ok but bordering on being a bit too soft and wet which is understandable due to the recent weather. The Derby as like playing one of my local cheapy courses, not looked after, not cut recently, no ball washers, lack of OOB markers where there was OOB. I would rather play a different local course than pay for The Derby, its almost as if the greenkeepers don't walk over to that course as its not in their job description to look after that one. Pity as it could be a good option for those who don't want to afford the Brab or PGA National. Facilities at the golf shop, golf bar and hotel excellent as always even if the prices are eye wateringly high for everything. I think there are better weekend away options for the money but the Belfry holds on to golfers emotional attachments with the Ryder Cup links, the celebrity plaques and pictures all around plus the fantastic off course facilities. Even though it costs an arm and a leg, I am sure I will go back again sometime sigh !

A true test of your golf game.

Great tee boxes, fairways and greens. The rough on the PGA course was gruelling and the heath was almost impossible to play from. A true test of your golf game.
