The Belfry

Played the Brabazon. Awesome. Played at 7:30am. Only £60. First on. Took 3 hours 45 mins
Loved it. Only down side was the 10th. The staff were tending the bunker. I wanted to go for the green. Got fed up with waiting so decided to lay up. Got my Par anyway.

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!

Glad I finally got to play it...

Golfshake Team ReviewBeen on my bucket list for a while now but was never going to pay the full rate they wanted...
Fortunately they were doing a 40th anniversary special rate at certain
times of ?40 each so it had to be done...
Really enjoyed it even though the 4ball in front kept us waiting on
every shot for the first 9 holes...Course was in good condition but you could see it gets a lot of traffic
through. Some great additions to the course were the little Ryder Cup plaques etc dotted round to
remind you of what has gone before...
Would def recommend but not at the full price in my eyes.....?40 was great value for us though...

Great experience overall at the belfry. The pga is the sister of brabazon. It does play different. Long grass rough...balls lost. Water hazards down sides of some fairways. Quite tough.

Played the Brabazon for the first time. Really enjoyable, the course was in very good condition. After a long period of hot dry weather the greens were very, very fast. The greens were of excellent quality and consistent. A round requires good course management, the sprinklers either side of the fairway show distances to the front of the green which is very useful. The fairways wind beautifully with very well placed and punishing bunkers. My advice would be firstly keep drives straight - sacrificing distance for accuracy would be useful, secondly, ensure your approaches are made from the best angles and thirdly ensure you leave uphill putts more so than on other courses. The staff were superb : all very polite, courteous and helpful and happy to give advice and share experiences. The only disappointment was a large hold up at the tenth, this is the \"Seve\" hole where he somehow placed his tee shot close to the hole from the \"blue tees\". The yellow tee position makes this far, far more possible but the tee shots are recorded and if you put it in the water you get a \"free drop\" in front of the water. This all slows the pace of the round (very frustrating when we were playing well - we had to wait for 25 minutes!) This, we felt, was very unnecessary and didn\'t accurately reflect your score for the hole! This apart it was a very enjoyable experience and one that we are likely to repeat.

Great service as per normal. (Women in the pro shop; Graham who emailed over Dvc membership details and of course the shuttle driver)

Driving range was good and fairly priced.

Wet under foot which is to be expected with current weather; fairways where good and greens had no surface water what so ever.

No slow play and plenty of scope to still attack the course.

Can't wait to return next saturday.

As enjoyable as the PGA and the Brabazon

I played the Derby Parkland course today as very impressed. It's naturally not as impressive as the two main courses, but it's a cracking course. The course is no less looked after than the main courses, it takes a little water but the greens and fairways were great. There is frequent free transport there and back from the Pro-Shop.

Not for the faint hearted

Beautiful, well kept setting, 3 different courses to choose from. The two courses I played, The Derby and the PGA both felt luxurious. Virtually litter free, spongy tees and bowling green greens, it was a pleasure to play. The Derby was the less challenging of the two, but challenging enough (perhaps too much so) for me with a 43 handicap. The PGA course was particularly difficult, if you left the fairway your ball was most likely lost in the rough. There is no forgiveness on this course.

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.

Fantastic condition but not as good as I hoped

The brabazon is known for its 10th and 18th and they lived up to their reputation but the rest of the layout was very much like a parkland course with big bunkers and some water . May be it was my game, as I left that behind, but I am not sure i would be rushing back to play it. Would prefer the PGA myself

Disappointing

We booked this the night before over a few beers and prior to making our minds up I saw The Derby described as "a good muni course at best" which we ignored but transpired to be spot on. Great condition but a hugely uninspiring course. Facilities obviously fantastic, staff also fantastic.

All that?s said and more

Is it worth. Yes. We played the PGA on Sunday after a dreadful Saturday weather wise. Heavy rain, and gale force winds. The course was in very good condition, they apologised because the pin positions couldn?t be mapped,as they?d been move to high points. That says it all. Monday we played the Brabazon, we should have been on the Derby but upgraded, it was well worth it.
The course again was in great condition. The whole set up is very good.
Playing the Brabazon , following on from the greats is staggering it?s a test off the yellows, how they play it off the championship tees is beyond me.
The belfry does not disappoint. If your looking for a good weekend away, go for it. All the staff were really friendly and happy to see you. Food was good and surprisingly not that expensive. Drinks were acceptably priced, but not cheap, but it didn?t stop us having a few watching the football after our game.
We will be going back definitely.
