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.

Best course I've played in the UK

We played in early Dec and the course was in perfect condition. Green fee only £45!! A real privilege to play here.

Anyone that says its boring needs shooting.
Excellent layout win amazing condition and pace of play is always spot on.

Derby - Instantly forgettable

I've played the Brabazon & it's fantastic. I was hoping for a cheaper version of that experience with the Derby.
I know I only paid 20 quid, but sorry it disappointed. I walked off 18 & couldn't remember a single hole. It's in good condition & the greens are nice. The staff are all superb, but a very disappointing golf course.

Poor starters

Played here a number of times and always been happy with service. On this occasion I was part of a two ball. I am always conscious that 2 balls will be paired up when the course is busy and fully understand this. However when we arrived on this trip we were told when checking in that we are paired up with another 2 ball because they are extremely busy. Went to stater early and asked if at all possible could we go out as a 2. Starter said if the other 2 don?t turn up, yes we could. As he said that the 2 ball turned up and we were paired up. While waiting to tee off a 2 ball tees off in front of us. I pointed this out and he just said it?s how it?s worked out. We play our first hole and presumed that a 4 ball would play behind us. We arrive at the second tee and low and behold a 2 ball is playing behind us. So we have a 2 ball in front of us and a 2 ball behind, so clearly we were slowing the 2 ball behind up. Why the hell were we paired up yet two other groups of 2 balls weren?t. All very strange.

Brabazon

Friendly staff and starter, tees fairways and bunkers all tip top, very lush and the best I’ve seen this year. Course has matured enormously over the last 20 years. Flat and easy walk. Pins and yardage’s crystal clear. Leaf blowers used judiciously. Especially impressive how certain areas are roped off to keep you walking the right way and save wear and tear, costs nothing it amazes me that few if any courses follow the example. Really every greenkeeper should spend a week here and be inspired.
Two negatives for me, greens were a little too soft with some iffy patches and not quite as quick as i imagined. Far more seriously, especially as we had phoned through in advance, the range was shut at exactly the time we wanted to have a loosen, and unbelievably there wasn’t a single warm up net in site. That’s not really good enough at this level.
However, add in the unique Ryder Cup history and this does go 90% of the way to justifying the very steep green fee. Ranking about right on here.

The Brabazon

At 7255 yds off the blue it is a most daunting task plotting your way around. A true test of golf and a very enjoyable one. The set up at the Belfry is unbelievable and easy to understand why they were awarded the best golf hotel 2017. If you?re a keen golfer and haven?t been then I?d highly recommend visiting.

PGA National Course

The club and facilities are excellent, the course was in fabulous condition considering the hard summer, greens true but not easy! That's the way it should be!
The only down side on the day was that all of the golf buggies had been taken by a company day on the Brabazon, not a problem for me but if you needed a buggy? It would certainly pay to reserve one when making a course boking!

Top class course and good value

We got a great deal here through various schemes and had a great day. Have played before so no surprises, but always worth a visit here. Tough in places but the challenge is what we came for. Thoroughly enjoyed!

Worth The Trip.

Walking in the steps of giants, this is an amazing experience. The course itself is in excellent condition. Playing the Iconic 9th and 10th and 18th is an amazing experience to just say I have played this course. If you ever get the chance then go for it just so you can say, I have played the Brabazon !!!
