Great course (The Brabazon)

Fantastic course to play. 18 great holes, lots of water and bunkers with tight fairways. Paid £60 for The Brabazon course and it was worth every penny.
From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome by all the staff, no matter what part of The Belfry you are in. Great practice facilities with driving range, putting greens and short game area.
Will be going back again.

The Belfry, Brabazon Course

What can i say, what a beautiful laid out course, every hole is different from the last. Tight cut fairways, tree lined, bunkers well placed for the wayward shot and lots of water in all the wrong places for me. I didnt shoot a good round but came away thinking, wow what a course and the facilities are second to none. A great day and a thank you to my playing partners Daryl, Brian and David for making one i will probably never forget.

The Brabazon is at its best.

The Brabazon is in the very best of conditions all round. The fairways have been watered throughout the dry summer and are like a carpet. The greens are very fast and true. A championship course in the minority.

Brabazon at the belfry

this is only the second time i have played the brabazon and the greens were superb, this time we got a little momento of our visit which i think was a nice touch, i have played the PGA a dozen times or so and think it is a better course, this does not mean that it is, it just means it suits me better they are both great courses and well worth the money. the greens on both courses differ from day to day in speed but read pretty well not that i am an expert at reading greens

A Special Place.......

When you arrive at this course you just know you are somewhere special...I didnt really know what to expect before leaving home but the first thing I noticed was the atmosphere - you just know ever other player there is there because of their real love of golf!!

Of course, The Brabazon is the real draw and despite watching many Ryder cups on the TV, nothing really beats being on the hallowed turf. However, for me the buzz in the bar and the restaurant will be as memorable as the round - although I wont forget reaching the 18th green in two (albeit the greenside bunker - I didnt care!).

I wont bore you with the course because 4 Ryder Cups in 20 years tells its own story but its sheer quality!

On Day Two we played The Derby which whilst not The Brabazon was still good and just as enjoyable. All in all a great couple of days and a place that all serious lovers of the game should experience.

Book now!

The Belfry...Brabazon

The Brabazon was the toughest course i have ever played the rough was long and thick and there is water everywhere on the front nine after the second.the golf were fast and true.
Got a par on the tenth which felt great and managed to hit a perfect drive at the last right next to Christy O,Connors plack on the fairway and managed to clear the other water in 3 managed to get a 6 which after the round i had had felt great. It was a fantastic experence to play one of the top ten course in the world. But i wouldn't recommend it to many golfers over a handicap of 18.the pro shop is out of this world like a supermarket for golfers and the hotel was very nice lots of celbrity watching also played the Derby which was a very average course which could do with a bit of watering.
