Just a short note to say how brilliant our golf break at "The Abbey" went down. The staff were incredibly courteous, the meals exceptional value, rooms impeccably clean and the golf course a good test of golf. Please convey our thanks to the hotel for an exceptional value for money deal and truly great experience. Thanks,
Abbey Hotel Golf & Spa
The Abbey is fortunate to have a fantastic golf course designed by Donald Steel, one of the world's finest golfing architects of his generation. Inaugurated in the late 1970s, the layout has continued to mature, and with this its reputation has grown; it is now a regular host to county tournament play.
The 175-acre estate that hosts the golf hotel was once the property of the now ruined local abbey. With superb access to Birmingham and the towns to its South, there are many advantages to a golf break at the Abbey.

The Abbey Golf & Country Club
From the championship pegs, Steel's creation measures a shade under 6,700 yards, making it a genuine test of ball-striking ability, but with hotel visitors in mind, there are tees to suit golfers of all abilities. The main obstacles en route to a good score are the mature trees that line the fairways, and the lakes which are all too ready to welcome wayward golf balls.
The Abbey Golf Course layout includes mature trees, lakes and on the whole the fairways are wide with the rough not too punishing, the picturesque 6th is a 200 yard drive from the medal tee with the green surrounded on three sides by the River Arrow. The 12th is a challenging uphill par-4 drive between two mature oak trees at 250 yards with the green concealed out of sight at the top of the hill.
The Abbey Hotel Golf & Spa is also able to boast superb practice and coaching facilities which includes a two-tier 28 bay floodlit driving range, heated teaching bays, automated ball dispensers, high quality 'berm outfield lighting' 3 large high quality pro target greens and a custom fit centre which uses Trackman technology - the choice for swing and ball flight analysis by golf' leading authority: the PGA Tour and The R&A and Tour Pros - the only Midlands club to feature this technology!
The deluxe 4 star Abbey Hotel Golf & Spa is set in a beautiful 175-acre estate on the edge of Redditch town.

A group of 16 have just returned from 2 nights at the Abbey Golf Club June 2011.
The Hotel provides good value for money, the 4 star modern hotel was clean, bright and spacious with friendly staff and our room was very comfortable. The linen and towels were changed every day and the room was well equipped and even had a flat screen TV with Freeview. The Bar had a good selection of drinks and the bar staff were very friendly and a warm welcome was received, in particular from the night porter. There was some outside seating on the patio which was comfortable and inviting in the warm evenings.The Restaurant was nicely laid out, the food was served hot and quickly and the inclusive set menu was varied enough for a short golf break, you can also choose off the set menu but this may include an additional cost. For breakfast you had a choice from an extensive continental and full English buffet and the staff were all very attentive, especially the Restaurant Manager.
The Leisure Centre was situated adjacent to the Golf Shop and it had a good fitness suite, sauna, jacuzzi and a decent size swimming pool. The Golf shop had a limited stock but carried the essentials and the staff were very friendly and helpful. As far as the hotel and the facilities go everything on offer at the Abbey Golf and Country Club is makes it a great destination for a weekend golf holiday.
The golf course is mature and picturesque creating a good challenge for all standards of golfers. The marshal greeted us on the first day and clearly explained the rules. The course was in very good condition when we visited. There were a couple of extended walks from Greens to Tee’s through the Housing Estate to holes 2 and 10 but everything was clearly signposted.
The 19th hole was raised above the 18th Green creating a superb viewing point to see your fellow Golfers struggle up the last hole! The Abbey Golf Club is ideally located just a few miles from the M42, overall we had a great golf trip and would consider a return visit in the future. Over the last few years we have been on golf breaks to The Bank House, Draycote Hotel, Whitefields Golf Club and Staverton Park.
Abbey Golf and Country Club matched these for quality and we would recommend any of these venues for a weekend golf holiday or as part of an extended golf tour.
This is the fourth year I have booked with your Golf Travel and yet again I was provided with first class service. The knowledge and efficiency of the staff at your Golf travel are second to none and I’m sure we will be back in touch for many years to come.
For our annual “North vs South” Ryder Cup- esque competition we headed to the Abbey Hotel Golf and Country Club which ticked all the boxes for a great weekend golf break. For a one night stay, breakfast, dinner and 2 rounds of golf, the price was excellent and the whole group had a great time.
The Hotel was top class; the rooms were clean and functional, meals were fresh and tasty (full cooked/continental breakfast buffet) and the staff were great. We had a choice of dishes for dinner and everything was served hot and at a higher standard than I expected which was a nice bonus.
The golf course was in great condition; the greens were super fast and each hole was well laid out. A nice finishing hole with the 18th green surrounded by the elevated outdoor bar area meant we could watch each group coming in and the banter was hilarious! This isn’t the hardest course you’ll play, but for a society weekend it was the perfect choice so thanks for the recommendation. Our handicaps ranged from 10-24 and everyone was challenged by what we thought was a fun course to play.
Drinks and food in the bar were an average price, the location, just off the M42 was easy to find and I would thoroughly recommend any society to make a booking.
Your Golf Travel was again efficient and helpful in making the bookings and we will certainly be using you again.Oh, and the South won, regaining the trophy after 2 years up North!
We had a great weekend golf break at The Abbey Hotel, Golf & Country Club. All arrangements were very well organised and communication from YGT excellent pre event.
The Hotel was very well appointed with very good leisure facilities, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent menu choice, 3 courses or 2 off the A La Carte up to £25. Breakfast a very good choice also.
The golf course was ok, but we found that the fairways were a little woolly and seemed not to have been mown much on the first day. The second round was better as they had mown in the morning early. Would definitely go again and plan another boys' weekend away next year and will book with YGT.
