Golf courses

Arden Course

The Arden Course is one of the country's most established tournament layouts, having hosted the cream of the European Tour for the British Masters from 1997-1999 and in 2003, and the English Open from 2000-2002. This is indicative of the quality of the course, which has some truly distinctive holes, especially the 18th, an exacting par-3. When stretched to its fullest, the Arden will measure 7,213 yards, and demand the absolute best in striking in order to score well. Should you manage to find the green in regulation, the outstanding putting surfaces will give you a good chance to convert.

Aylesford Course

The Aylesford Course is considerably shorter than its prestigious neighbour, but the expert attention of the greenkeepers ensures that it remains in equally immaculate condition. The Aylesford may be less than 6,000 yards, but underestimate it at your peril, as there are penalties to be paid for the wayward. This charming little course adds good variety to the Forest of Arden's repertoire, and emphasises the quality of a golf break at the resort.

In addition, the Forest of Arden is home to a first class golf academy, where visitors can seek the guidance of one of the resident PGA professionals.

From the back tees, the Arden's 202-yard 18th hole demands a solid draw with a long iron or fairway wood.

Hotel Information

Although the golf courses may be the star turn at the Forest of Arden, the superb hotel should not be underestimated. With 214 rooms and unparalleled facilities and service, your golf holiday here will undoubtedly be a memorable one.

Despite being within a short distance of Birmingham, the NEC and the International Airport, the hotel is set amidst no less than 10,000 acres of Warwickshire's finest countryside. The spacious guest rooms are luxurious, as is expected from a 4-star Marriott, and are furnished and decorated in a tasteful, contemporary style.

The outstanding facilities make this a great choice for a leisure or spa break, while those who choose a golf break at the Forest of Arden will be rested and rejuvenated in the hotel, ready to tackle the superb courses once again.

The Cedarwood Spa centre at the Forest of Arden is a luxurious facility, offering an extensive variety of health and beauty therapy. Speciality treatments include body scrubs and wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures, massages and waxing. For the fitness-conscious, the leisure club has an excellent swimming pool, sauna, steam room and gymnasium, while there are also tennis courts, table tennis and croquet.

The formal Broadwater Restaurant specialises in superb international cuisine, paired with an extensive and well-researched wine list.

The Long Weekend Café Bar serves good meals and drinks throughout the day.

The Cocktail Bar is ideal for a perfectly mixed drink to round off an evening.

Just a quick note to thank you for organizing the golf weekend. First of all it is difficult to please 24 people but on this occasion it was achieved, everything was first class, nothing could be faulted in any way. I look forward to many more weekends, thank you.


I took a mixed group of 8 for a golf break at the Marriott Forest of Arden recently and was impressed with the courses, the hotel and the service from Your Golf Travel. The hotel complex is easy to find, being well signposted from quite a way out. The facilities at the hotel are great and so are the restaurants and bars. The food and rooms are up to the usual high Marriott standard and the drinks are as expensive as they are in other Marriotts.

The shorter Aylesford Course is OK as an opener. They are not watering the fairways and therefore they are a little sparse, but the greens are good and overall it is a decent test of golf. It is best however to focus on the Arden Course - the championship course - which is an entirely different proposition. At 6,500 yards off the yellow tees this presents as a good test of golf with water featuring on at least a third of the holes. Brown Fallow deer abound; this is an incredibly picturesque golf course. And the final hole, 200 yards across a lake is a fitting end to the round. Don't forget to look back at the tee from the green to see the name of the club picked out in flowers.

Would we go again? Yes!

YGT service level breaks par again.


Thanks to everyone at, we have just returned from a fantastic golf break at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel, Golf & Country Club. I organised the trip on behalf of 14 friends to celebrate a 50th birthday. The hotel is great, especially for larger parties – nothing (and I mean nothing) seemed to be a problem. The rooms were very comfy; some shared some had large singles. The food at both dinner and breakfast had a great choice for all and the bars were really relaxing. We played both courses, but the championship Arden course is the star – one of the best courses in the UK, by a margin. I have an inbox full of thanks from friends, but actually the booking through YGT is what made it easy. Would definitely do it again.


­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Our group hugely enjoyed our short stay at The Marriott Forest of Arden. The hotel cannot be faulted, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. We had lunch in the Zest bar before our first round and dinner in the Oak Room afterwards, I would recommend both. We all found the golf quite challenging especially on the Arden course, where a buggy was definitely appreciated by 2 of our party. The Aylesford course was not quite so difficult, and the ladies beat us gents by 8 points!

Overall we would rate this venue at least 8/10, we would definitely be happy to visit again some time in the future.
