The Lakes Course is the more established of Belton Woods' championship tracks, and represents a formidable challenge for even the better golfers that visit. As its name suggests, it is crucial to negotiate the substantial water hazards, many of which are strategically positioned at the front of the putting surfaces, demanding high-quality approach play.

The Woodside Course is Belton Woods' second championship layout, and underlines why it is regarded as one of the best golf resorts in the Midlands. The Woodside is widely regarded to be more playable for the higher handicappers, but there is no shortage of potential obstacles, coming primarily from the many lakes, which are designed to complement the natural undulations of the land itself.

Most of the holes on the 9-hole Red Arrows Course are little more than 100 yards, but that does not diminish from a very enjoyable and useful experience. It may be aimed primarily at beginners and improvers, but all good golfers know that good scoring is hinged on deadly wedge play, so make use of the academy course to hone those all-important skills.
Belton Woods also has a 20-bay floodlit driving range and short game area for warming up and practicing.
The 9th hole on the Lakes Course is one of the country's longest, at 609 yards - see if you can join the exclusive club to have found the green in two blows.
475 acres of outstanding rural Lincolnshire land play host to Belton Woods' excellent hotel, where a relaxed atmosphere is combined perfectly with superb facilities to produce a top class package for a golf break in the East Midlands.
The standard of the 136 guest rooms is testament to the recent completion of a £2 million refurbishment plan, making sure that the hotel matches the quality of the golfing facilities. The Classic rooms are more than adequate, while the Ambassadors are larger and have golf course views.
For a special occasion, the opulent suites boast marble bathrooms, whirlpool baths, and a separate living area. This superb hotel, with its accommodation, facilities and service, provides everything a visitor could want from a 4-star golf break.
Those in search of the action will be interested in the swimming pool, fitness centre, tennis and squash courts, in addition to the archery, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, quad biking and more that are managed by the on-site activity company. There is a slower pace in the Serenity Spa, which offers a variety of health and beauty treatments, while the leisure centre also has a steam room, sauna, whirlpool spa and sun beds.
The Manor Restaurant's outstanding dining room and Mediterranean cuisine have been recognised with an AA Rosette.
Stanton's Brasserie serves home-cooked classics in an informal setting.
The Claret Jug awaits weary golfers in need of refreshment.

The accommodation was excellent. Very clean and two double beds in each twin room with a good sized bathroom is all a couple of golfers need. The food (evening meal and breakfast) was first class and the staff were very helpful.
A ‘tired’ hotel staffed in the main by youngsters Same vegetables with every meal Restaurant was akin to a motorway canteen Staff were pleasant
Disappointed that the Restaurant at Belton Woods refused to give us 20% of our lunch on Sunday (despite showing them the contract that shows 20% of food & beverages) and said we should take it up with the golf shop, which we did who gave us a voucher to show at the restaurant who for the second time said it was for drinks only. The golf shop then told us that we should take it up with the Hotel Management. The Golf Shop understood our frustration and said that they would only charge us £30 for the Buggy's (which we thought was quite expensive anyway). We spoke to the Hotel Management in the evening after playing golf who gave us a card to confirm our entitlement o 20% of food, but too late for our lunch of course!!On Monday for our second round of golf the Golf Shop charged us £35 for the Buggy's with an explanation for the price increase that the greens on today's Woodside course were in better condition than Sundays Lakes Course hence the increase (no mention of the "gesture" for us not getting 20% of our lunch) Very disappointed in the Financial rip-off on a Golfers lunch and overcharges on Buggys! We are all members of a Nottinghamshire Golf Club and certainly wont be recommending Belton Woods because of this, more to be wary of overcharges!
It was meant to be a superior room but it was just the same as last year. No aircon but fine with the windows open. Needs a toilet brush in the bathroom
From arrival staff were very friendly in fact all staff throughout are stay were fantastic Would recommend your golf travel As enjoyed our golf break
Hotel rooms are a little tired, in need of some updating and refurbishment but still quite comfortable. Breakfast was good , mainly buffet but some additions at extra cost. Dinner menu change every day and good choices and quality reasonable. Not a great selection of beers on draft.
Excellent hotel made all the better by the exceptionally friendly and extremely helpful staff. We been to many different golf resorts over the years with YourGolfTravel and this one was without doubt the best. I hope the hotel are proud of their staff
The rooms were great, except my bed that seemed to slope down towards the head board, so I slept the other way around
Large hotel with good facilities. Good selection of bars and restaurants and Groups well managed and catered for.
Two comfortable double beds and plenty of room to move around. Good selection of drinks at reasonable prices. Shame the hotel bar did not serve cask ale like the 19th hole.
The only downside of the hotel is that in March they decided to discontinue the evening carvery in favour of an A la Carte menu. The food, however, was still very good with the normal full breakfast buffet still being served
Hotel facilities where good which we unfortunately spent a large amount of our time due to the very bad weather conditions.
Excellent venue for large and small societies. Staff very very accommodating and the course is a good challenge for levels of player. Recommended.
Rooms were great, most staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough, but the sports bar staff were too busy - too short-handed perhaps. Breakfast was very good and very ample. The set dinner had 4 choices for each course, but on the two nights we were there, at least one of the main courses was disappointing and the quantities insufficient. Most of my group were happy drinking lager, but I and a few others thought the choice of only 2 draught beers was very poor - disappointed not to have any hand-pulled beers in any of the bars.
Accommodation very comfortable and clean but bars and restaurant disappointing. The hotel ran out of beer over a very busy Bank Holiday weekend! On one evening the food served up bore little resemblance to the menu. e.g. steak and ale pie was substituted with a Cornish pastie! It transpired that the kitchen had not ordered enough food and they tried to palm us off with inferior substitutes with no explanation! A very poor customer relation experience which will probably mean we will not be returning to Belton Woods. The management did try to make amends the following evening but the damage had been done. A disappointing experience.
Enjoy our stay, well recommend 😘
Absolutely perfect location under an hours drive, luxurious bedrooms with second to none facilities. Made to feel special from all staff we meet. Meals plentiful and varied, restaurant and bar area spacious and very comfortable. Customer service second to none from the delightful Rachael whoe went above and beyond to make our stay welcome. 10/10 we will be back.
Great hotel lovely location
Great. Room , good food
Very nice location and setting, great for a golf trip with the lads but would also be a nice family get away. Very accommodating staff.
Food/only carvery available all three nights. Some staff had a don't care less attitude. (ordered a bottle of champagne in the main bar next to the restaurant & got told no full bottles of champagne available ?? went to the golf bar & they went to the cellar and got one ???) No one enjoyed the food experience (first time ever).
Our stay was as one would have expected.Having stayed at Forest Pines and Slaley Hall previously Belton Woods is on a par although the two courses are not quite as good as the others.
We had a wondeful tour with our group of 32 and could not fault it in any way. The private dining room was superb and the staff looked after us very well indeed. Everyone commented how much they'd enjoyed the quality of the meals. The golf courses were all ideal for our tour representing good challenging tests in scenic surroundings. We would highly recommend it for other groups.

Bit more contoured than Lakes course. Again irresponsible golfers spoiling the greens.
Long but wide fairways. Decent course let down by pock marked greens......caused by ignorant golfers not repairing pitchmarks.
Great course just let down by slow greens
We just had a four ball of hackers in front of us otherwise the round would have been completed in normal time. Greens were slow for a course of this quality.
Favourite of the two
Enjoyed the course
We all enjoyed playing this course
We all enjoyed the Golf Course.
Great course, but the drinks cart never appeared and it was very very hot
Love the course, but drinks cart appeared on 2nd hole then we never saw him after that, and it was very hot
A little more manicured than the lakes unfair to rate the greens as they were heavily sanded Again a great course
Great round, the course ok but is well used with a lot of pitch marks on the greens and various damage which is a shame but all in all a great test enjoyed it, would definitely go back
Greens had been hollow tined and sanded and were very different fro the Lakes— we understand this needs to be done but maybe a small refund or maybe a bottle of wine at dinner might have softened the disappointment a little. But the layout and general condition was ok for a second course.
The teeing areas were quite worn and very patchy but you could still find a decent lie. Fairways good, rough tricky and greens excellent—a good test !
Generally in good condition. Greens were in good condition apart from one of the par 5's. Fairways generous (good for most of our party!). A fair test of golf.
Played on the Saturday morning, front 9 was very good, again well designed holes but not as tough as Lakes. Back 9 not as strong but enjoyable. We had a 4 ball in front who were very slow and there was no one to push them along. On Friday one of groups were asked to pick up the pace of play when is was not as slow ( now where near). Overall a really enjoyable weekend and a place I would recommend, excellent value for money.
Really like the course. Well designed holes with plenty to think about, greens were in very good condition as where the fairways. A couple of scruffy areas around the bunkers, but overall a really enjoyable round of golf.
Again a good challenge. Greens where fast and slopes treacherous. Very easy to putt off the green if not below the hole.
Despite heavy rain there was no pooling of water on the fairways or greens. Good challenge and had to decide to lay up or go for it. Going into semi rough took this decision away.
Overall the course was good, but the fairway grass was a bit too long. I understand that this was as a result of bad weather not allowing the green keepers proper access to the course. Greens were pretty fast with very subtle breaks
This is the more difficult of the two courses, but is the easier one to walk
The weather conditions made it very hard for the course to be presented in its best light. Greens and tees obviously reflect the fact that this is a resort course but you definitely get what you pay for and this was excellent value.
It was harder to score on this course. Up until the day of our arrival they'd had very little rain and the course was hard - nearly bare in a few places. I guess we didn't see it at its best
I preferred this layout to that of the Lakes Course.
The wind blew when we played this course and the higher handicappers amongst us did not score well, with many balls lost in the plentiful lakes on the course. Still a good testing course.
A good, challenging course which suited all abilities in our group.
Same as above
The courses need more sign to direction the different hole for different course, since it has two courses quite close together.
Similar to the Lake's albeit the grounds were very muddy...again very quiet which was a bonus for myself. Thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband said both greens were excellent for this time of year.
10.45 am was just right played a 4 ball. The course wasn't very busy and for beginner like myself was great, albeit for a single finger handicap like my husband he found the course easy. Overall thoroughly enjoyed it.
Good standard of golf needed .
Good course but a little up and down , no variety of holes.
Given the reviews I'd read beforehand I was a little disappointed with the course, somewhat tatty in places but this could have been down to recent weather. Greens had only recently been dressed too which meant we couldn't get the full Lakes experience. Also very slow, 5 hours 30 mins following 2 fourballs on buggys who had no ettiquite. Could have done with some marshalling.
Same comments as lake course ?? Second round on the Monday OK.
Five & a Half hours for both rounds ?? Waiting on most tees ??? This happened twice ??
The condition of the course was similar to the Woodside course for no doubt the same reason. Unfortunately we were behind a group of ladies who we believe were members. Our round took over five hours. Not pleasant.
It was satisfactory although I suspect the tees and fairways were still suffering from the exceptionally dry and hot summer.
More difficult than the Woodside but a good test of golf and in very good condition.
The greens had been hoolw-tined 3 weeks before so were mot ideal, but did not spoil our enjoyment of the course which was good in every other respect.
