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.

Decent course.

Played with friends so wasn’t that focussed.

Easy to lose balls.

Better than expected

The "second" course at The Belfry but by no means a poor relation. Conditioning was superb throughout and although a few balls were lost you needed to be fairly wide to reach the longest grass. A really good test, esoecially with the wind and rain on such an open layout. Different to Brabazon but no bad thing if you enjoy a challenge.

Brabazon yes, PGA no

A weekend away with the boys to play the UK's premier golf venue. I had played it before many times, but only ever in winter conditions so playing it in the summer was a treat. The Brabazon at an eye watering ?160 a round was in amazing condition and was an absolute pleasure to play. One day I will get on the green in one on the 10th ! On the second day we played the PGA billed at ?85 ... this course is just good which is a pity as I have heard since that the Derby course is a better experience that the PGA which has really unforgiving rough and is a tad boring. The hotel and food experience at the Belfry is always good, but you pay a lot for it. I think I will go back to only playing here when there is a really good deal on, otherwise from a cost point of view it doesn't compete with other venues like Rockliffe Hall and Slaley Hall.

Great Course, poor hotel

The PGA National is a fantastic course and I thoroughly enjoyed my day there. Everything Golf related was superb, the pro shop is well stocked and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I wasn't keen on was the hotel and the food. I am not sure if this was due to how busy the venue was but the service in the restaurant was terrible and the food was bland. Our room was very basic and dirty, which did put a downer on the weekend, but it was the Golf that saved it.

Tom & Me

Difficult conditions with high winds on the back 9 and showers on and off. The pace was a little slow with a 9 hole playing lesson in front. But marshall on hand to move play along. Buggies were very expensive at £50 a round. Booked through Tee Times much cheaper than on course booking. Greens very fast
