Beyond excellent

Do not have time to list all the superlatives in relation to our round of golf and overnight stay at the hotel.

Was lucky enough to attend a couple of the Ryder Cup matches here in the 80's... so this course holds some extremely fond memories.

Course in absolutely tip-top manicured condition. Starter and course marshal did a great job of introducing the course, its history and how best to play it for what was a very mixed handicap group.

Pace of play was perfect... no hold-ups as they adopt a 10-minute gap between tee times... unlike some other money-grabbing courses who go for 8 minutes to cram as many people on as possible and leave you standing for 5 minutes on every tee.

The standard of service in the hotel was equivalent to a top US hotel... nothing was too much trouble and the staff were extremely attentive and genuine in their desire to make your stay something you would remember positively.

The Brabazon Course still lives up to the iconic status it enjoys as the course that has hosted more Ryder Cups than any other.

We will be back next year.

Wow

It's pretty amazing and for the £60 fee isn't such an expensive day when you factor in you won't play a better course all year, loved it, awesome experience and the Belfry itself is a classy place.

Piece of history

Brilliant golf course and considering the recent rain was in superb nick. Greens were very good all round even though they were fairly soft again due to the rain.
Friendly staff and a club shop which is more like a golf superstore.
An absolute must for any golfer and a chance to play a piece of golfing history.

Speaks for its self

Great day and course was in great shape for the time of year. It was a shotgun start which allowed them to blow off all the leaves on each hole. Some great holes with lots of water around. Stunning looking holes and water featuring on most. Alround hreat day.

Wow wow wow

Thank you so much to the belfry. The brabazon was in immaculate condition. We played as a family, myself, my parents and my son. It was a present for my dad’s birthday and the staff were great, making him feel good. The course was superb and a place every golfer should play. Day topped off with my lad driving the green on 10, making a two! Great day, great place, great people. Thank you!

Shotgun Bargain

Played this under a great deal the Belfry were doing this winter, a shotgun start at 10:30am that was 25% of the usual green fee. February is cold & its going to be wet but wear the right clothes & you can still enjoy the challenges this course throws at you. We all know the 10th & 18th & if you don't enjoy those, I suggest you give up the game. However the Brab is more than just those two holes, yes there are a few mundane ones but the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th & 16th are very good in their own right. It had been very wet before we played & the walk from tee to fairway was a bit of a bog at times but the fairways themselves & the greens were still in good order (many of them had been hollow tined but they still ran true). We went round in bang on 4hrs, so i hope the Belfry do more of this type of offer in the winter months, recommended at this price!

Don’t play until the greens are playable!!

The course was saturated and the greens had been spiked, we were really looking forward to playing a top 100 course for £42.
The whole day was a let down, if we had been informed of the conditions before we booked we would have gone elsewhere.

Don’t waste your money until the greens recover.

Needs Marshalls.....

We arrived to discover that our tee time via Teeofftimes had not been confirmed on the golf clubs booking system. However the pro shop team found a way around that to allow us to tee off at roughly the allocated time. The only problem with the golf course was the varying conditions of the greens (some recently holotyned, others top dressed) which at this time of the year is totally acceptable given the price we paid. However 5 hours 40 mins for a 3 ball with just a 4 ball in front was not. Granted the golf club cannot be held entirely responsible for the behavior and lack of etiquette of a few if its customers however on a bitterley cold day the experience was ruined by a lack of authority on the course and spoilt by a group who clearly felt they were entitled to the course exclusively. I have played here previously without issue under similar circumstances so I wouldn't be put off returning with the fresh proviso that it could then turn out to be a very long day (including two extensive drives to the venue itself). A shame on this occasion but I'll look forward to writing a more positive review following my next visit.

Some memorable holes but overall the course is very overrated. Fairways and bunkers were poor. Greens were ok.
