Golf Courses at The Belfry

The Brabazon Golf Course

The Brabazon course is without doubt the main attraction at The Belfry. As a four-time host of The Ryder Cup, more than any other course, this famous layout is steeped in Ryder Cup history. Who could forget Christy O’Connor’s famous 2 iron to the final green in 1985? Or Sam Torrance's 18th hole heroics just four years earlier; or the jubilant Paul McGinley sinking the winning putt in 2002?

As you might expect, the course itself is a fine test of golf too, where the excitement comes from playing iconic and familiar holes. The par 5 3rd is a cracker thanks to the work of Dave Thomas, who carried out renovations in the late 90s, and of course there are iconic holes such as the par 4 10th. Seve drove the green back in 1985 and ever since, that’s been the play for many a player with enough firepower to carry the water short and left of the green. Even if you lay up with your original ball, tee up another and have a crack; it would be rude not to!

Just like the 10th, the closing hole on The Brabazon is a thriller, totally defined by the almost overwhelming presence of water short and left of the green. This is a classic risk vs. reward par 4 where players can choose to be brave, hugging the left and cutting off some of the water from the tee, leaving a shorter approach shot into the green, which must carry the lake to find the long, slender green.

The iconic moments on these famous holes are what make a round on The Brabazon Course so special, and should inspire every golfer to visit and experience that legacy.

Course Information

Par 72
Designed by Peter Alliss & Dave Thomas
Opened for play 1977
Previously hosted The Ryder Cup (1985, 1989, 1993 & 2002)

Tees

Blue 7,160 yards SSS 74
White 6,729 yards SSS 73
Yellow 6,391 yards SSS 71
Red 5,796 yards SSS 73

Signature Hole – No. 10: Par 4, 311 yards (Blue Tees)

It’s a bit of a tossup between the iconic 10th and 18th holes on The Brabazon but we all love a great risk vs. reward short par 4. The choice is simple: either hit a long iron or fairway wood into position or, if you have the required length, go for driver and try to carry the water short and left of the green in order to set up a good chance for birdie. With so many classic Ryder Cup moments having taken place here, there’s a real sense of excitement when you step onto the tee. The 10th is one of the most picturesque holes on the course too so regardless of how you choose to play it, you’ll be sure to enjoy the challenge.

The PGA National Golf Course

The PGA National course opened for play in 1997 to strengthen The Belfry as a golfing resort and ease the traffic over the world famous Brabazon Course. Since then the PGA National has established a superb reputation of its own, hosting the Seniors European Open tournament, and was the 1st course in Europe to carry PGA branding.

The main feature of the course is the tremendous bunkering, designed to protect the large, undulating greens and when you add it all up, the course presents a stern challenge very much in an American Stadium style. A number of newly constructed lakes – water comes into play on no less than 8 holes so pack plenty of balls! – and manmade mounds provide definition to the holes and while the PGA National Course has clearly been built with tournament golf in mind, it offers an entertaining test from start to finish.

From the championship markers, the PGA National stretches to over 7,000 yards but fear not; multiple sets of tees on each hole allow all golfers to find their comfort zone. Still a relatively young course, The Belfry’s second championship course is sure to continue maturing in the years to come. 

Course Information

Par 72
Designed by Dave Thomas
Opened for play 1997
Previously hosted Two European Tour events & The Belfry Seniors Championship (2000)

Tees

Blue Par 72 7,053 yards SSS 74
White Par 71 6,639 yards SSS 72
Yellow Par 70 6,153 yards SSS 71
Red Par 73 5,735 yards SSS 74

Signature Hole – No. 12: Par 4, 405 yards (Blue Tees)

The 4th on the PGA National Course offers drama and demands good accuracy and course management from tee to green. You can choose to play safe from the tee, hugging the right hand side of the fairway but this leaves a long and difficult approach shot into the raised green which is well protected by 4 bunkers which aren’t visible from the fairway, and are ready to catch anything coming up short.

Braver players can take on a forced carry of about 220 yards to the left portion of the fairway which leaves a much more manageable approach but with water all around, there is risk a plenty. There are no places to hide on this hole and there won’t be many undeserved pars being handed out either.

The Derby Golf Course

The Dave Thomas designed Derby Course at The Belfry was opened alongside the Brabazon in 1977, and while it might not rank alongside the two championship courses at the resort, it’s an excellent alternative for higher handicappers, or for those looking for a more relaxing experience than a round on a long championship course.

With a par of 69 and a more manageable total yardage of 6,099 yards, the Derby can be enjoyed by any standard of golfer, with fewer hazards in play than on the PGA National and Brabazon Courses.  

Course Information

Par 69
Designed by Peter Alliss &Dave Thomas
Opened for play 1977

Did You Know? The Derby Course at The Belfry was named after the Earl of Derby. In a similar vein, the more famous Brabazon Course was named after Lord Brabazon of Tara.

Tees

Yellow Par 69 6,057 yards SSS 71
Red Par 71 5,573 yards SSS 71

Signature Hole – No. 16: Par 3, 180 yards (Yellow Tees)

The 16th on the Derby Course is a picturesque par 3 which demands a solid tee shot thanks in large part to the water hazard that guards the left hand side of the green, as well as the bunker that guards the right. The kidney shaped green offers many pin positions, some of which can be really treacherous if you have designs on taking on the pin. Playing safely for the centre of the green is the prudent play here and par is always a good score.  

Practice Facilities

The Belfry is home to some of the finest practice facilities in the country and visiting golfers can benefit from world-class tuition at England’s only PGA branded Golf Academy. Practice / teaching facilities at The Belfry include a 34 bay floodlit driving range, a superb putting green and dedicated short game practice area, as well as 5 individual custom fitting suites where golfers can make use of video analysis and launch monitor technology to better understand their games.

At The Clubhouse

Named after Sam Torrance, who of course holed the winning putt at The Belfry in 1985, as well as winning as a Captain here in 2002, Sam’s Bar at The Belfry is a great place to enjoy a bite to eat or a well deserved drink after your round. With an elevated seating area, golfers can also relax while gazing out over the courses and during the summer months, a cold beer al fresco style on the terrace is hard to beat as you watch golfers coming up the 18th, as well as taking on the exciting tee shot from the iconic 10th hole on the Brabazon. A fire pit ensures you can enjoy al fresco dining even after the sun has started to go down.

NB - Reservations cannot be made for Sam's Club House but with ample space, it is very likely you will be accommodated.   

Other Information

The Belfry recently undertook an extensive £26 million refurbishment programme which has restored the hotel and the resort facilities so that they match the quality found out on the courses.

Despite being set in 500 acres of tranquil countryside, The Belfry is just a short drive from the centre of Birmingham and can be easily accessed from the M6 and M42, not to mention being just 20 minutes from New Street Station and 10 minutes from Birmingham International Airport. If you’re leading a life of luxury, the resort even has its own Helicopter Pad.  

While the courses are relatively flat and easy to walk, those who want buggies should book well in advance and check on buggy restrictions in relation to course conditions.

Accommodation at The Belfry

The Belfry boasts 324 guest bedrooms, ranging from the more comfortable standard twins and doubles through to their superior rooms. For a particularly memorable occasion, there are 11 spacious suites and the Presidential Suite.

The guestrooms are tastefully decorated and well-furnished, while many offer excellent views over the manicured gardens or the golf courses. The 550 acres of Warwickshire countryside make for a sublime backdrop, while spending time in the hotel will evoke memories of the superb Ryder Cup matches to have been staged at The Belfry, particularly when you pass the European and American team rooms, where so many rousing speeches have been delivered.

This special atmosphere pervades the whole resort, and only serves to improve the experience of your golf break at The Belfry.

Health & Wellness at The Belfry offer a range of facilities that include a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and spa pools. In addition there’s a state-of-the-art gym with a range of TECA equipment from Italy, fitness studio, tennis and squash court.

Relax in the AquaSpa, a 90 minute journey through a series of 12 zones, experience hot and cold sensations with cleansing steam, piercing ice showers, aromatherapy mood lighting and a multi-featured hydrotherapy pool.

For a more formal dining experience, The French Grill offers a superb menu featuring modern European cuisine and overlooks The Brabazon course.

Furthermore, the buffet on offer at The Atrium offers an endless array of delicious classic dishes.

Following a round of golf, try Sam's, which is ideal for the hungry golfer. Alternatively head to the Belfry Bar for a drink, before moving on to the legendary Bel Air nightclub for a lively evening’s entertainment.

A dream come true...

We both loved being at The Belfry. The whole atmosphere of the hotel, the excellent facilities, our bedroom and most of all the magnificent golf courses made it a dream come true for us because we are such avid amateur enthusiasts of golf.

The layout of the two courses we played – The Derby and PGA National – were both so different, but so fantastic too...we couldn't fault either and even managed to play fairly well much to our surprise.

We loved the brilliant screens in the buggies too, giving us all the desired information regarding, yardage, warning us about where to place the ball, scoring etc. In fact anything we wished to remind ourselves about the course was there to view on the screens. 

We found The Belfry so attractive and pleasant but also exciting.

Our accommodation was superb, the staff were so helpful in every way and the location of the whole complex so very easy to find, so well signposted for visitors.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel, facilities, golf courses; in fact the whole package which we got from Your Golf Travel. In fact we’ve already have done so to a number of our friends.

We can't thank YGT enough for all your help & speedy information. We can't wait to get back to you for a future golf holiday.

Everything about our stay was fantastic, apart from how windy it was. The Brabazon was in top condition for the time of year.

Really great venue- golf, accommodation, food and service all top notch. Brabazon is a real challenge but you don't always need a driver off the tee, a 3 wood kept me out of trouble on numerous holes. Favourite holes- 10th, the drive-able par 4 over water, and 18th, where you really need a draw.

Great venue for a golf break

Just a great golf course, playing part of history always gives you a buzz. The Brabazon is always in top condition, no matter what time of year you play. We played the PGA course the day before, and it was also a really fantastic course which again, will test your golf. Fairways on both courses are a must off the tee. This has been my 4th visit on the bounce and I look forward to it every year. I also must mention that YGT has everything spot on. I have booked my Captains trip 2016 for 56 members through them, they just cant do enough to make sure you are happy.

Favourite hole was the 3rd and then the 17th, both par 5s. I hit big and par 5s are usually my favourites. I found the 3rd the most challenging hole- take on the water. On both holes, be confident. The hotel is very comfortable and the food was great.

Brabazon was a cracker

Fantastic value for only £99. Greens were immaculate for that time of year, even the uphiller's were scary. Great food, great rooms, great location. PGA national was a decent course too. Surprised how 'lived in' the Brabazon seemed.

The 10th stands out as a challenge to hit the green with your tee shots. Although, 18 is a superb hole, with a really good drive required to enable an easier approach shot over the lake to a tiered green - fabulous.

Not bothered if I don't go back

The course starter on the PGA national course was grumpy and didn't say anything other than "can I have your ticket". The rough on the PGA course was ridiculously high. It was actually above our knees, which caused slow play and made it less enjoyable. The hotel was ok but check in was painfully slow. The drinks prices were also ridiculous, more expensive than Gleneagles, Celtic manor and to all the golf resorts we have been to. The Brabazon was much better. I would play that course again but not stay.

Not as good as last time

Party of 36 went to the Belfry in 2012, we played the Brabazon and Derby courses. We had a fabulous time so booked to go back in 2013. This time we played the Brabazon and PGA courses and everyone agreed this was the best package. The recession appears to have kicked in because the free bag tag given out first time round was no longer available, there were less staff to organise and the quality of the food was not as good. Booked Celtic manner the following year and I would recommend that before the Belfry.

Check before you book

Had a wonderful time at the Belfry but with one reservation. The Brabazon course was great (as expected) - only lost one ball in the water (not as long as Seve!). The Derby was a disappointment - we were unfortunate to visit just as the greens were being hollow-cored (if we had known in advance we would have tried the PGA National instead). The building work going on did not disturb us but did mean that the pro-shop was decanted into a small space. The staff both in the hotel (reception and bars) and at/transporting to the first tees were helpful and friendly.

I will not be going back, poor value for money

Played the Brabazon course- poor condition of the bunkers, with large stones in several of them. One of us damaged his sand wedge playing out of a bunker. Also slow play, with the guide times not being adhered to by the group in front of us. We were approximately 25 minutes outside the guide time after 9 holes. I brought this to the attention of the course marshal at the 10th hole, who took no action. The above split the day that we had looked forward to.

My son and I played both the PGA and Derby courses over 2 days. Initially, we had an hour at the driving range- the auto ball feeders are brilliant. On both courses we were able to stay as a 2 ball, however it was very busy, bad queue at the Derby tee off, and constantly being closely pursued by the following playing group. Both courses and greens are very good. Golf shop and staff/reception staff were very good and welcoming, and the allocated bedrooms are excellent. 

The Belfry restaurant is quite expensive and Sams Club house appeared to be a better option. However, it was under staffed with disgruntle personnel. The food when it appeared, was nothing special. We stayed for lunch on the second day, but shouldn't have bothered. We will go back for the golf next year but probably eat out.

Loved playing this historic course

The derby is a bit boring compared to the PGA but it is still a good warm up for the Brabazon. The Brabazon is tough, long and you are punished for missing fairways or greens with plenty of water and long thick grass. The renovations to the bar area are great and the accommodation is fair but not great. An evening meal and breakfast was included on previous trips but on this trip the evening meal was gone and the bar prices were too high which was a shame. I always enjoy the trip though.

Walking in the footsteps of the greats

Standing on the first tee the feeling of 'this is it' hit me! All the modern Ryder Cup greats have hit that shot- Seve, Watson, Faldo, Woods and now me. The blood was really pumping as I tried (in vain) to drive the 10th. However, the scrambling par got me a '4 for 3' The new(ish) par 3 12th is a beautiful hole with nothing but water to admire. When we finally arrived at 18 (the 18th, some would say), my partners tell me they've never seen me so intense on a drive (I really wanted a 4). Anyhow, my missed four footer condemned me to a bogey and it was off to Sam's Bar for beers and endless chats of what might have been.

The problem was that there were too many people on the course, waiting at every shot was not ideal and led to long round times. I'm unsure if I would go back because of this.

The course was fine, although the fairways were not of the standard I was expecting. My main concerns relate to the hotel and service. We were unable to have dinner as it was fully booked (you did warn us) and frankly I felt the whole ambiance of the place was lacking 'soul'. In addition there was nothing else to do at the venue such as pool, table tennis, etc.

Brabazon had professional quality all round

PGA-hole 3 was favourite. 

Brabazon- all greens of superior speed and quality. It gave our group of 16 an insight into the type of greens that the pros face week in week out. They beat us up. Our best score was 30 pts stableford for our group of touring Kings Lynn golfers. Glutton for punishment. Can't wait to return to be beaten up again. No weak holes but some are a welcome relief. The obvious gems are the 9th and the 18th. 

For anyone playing for the first time there are potential water hazards all over, so bring plenty of balls. Don't travel far to play the Derby. Hotel was excellent.

Very much enjoyed our trip to the Belfry. The two night bed and breakfast break in the hotel, with a round of golf on each of the three courses was ideal and great value for money. Particularly enjoyed the PGA National which is a great course and less tough than the famous Brabazon. All courses were good tests of golf and in excellent condition. Staff at the club and in the hotel were very helpful and courteous. Rooms in the hotel were very clean and comfortable. The drive down from Scotland was straightforward, fairly quick via the Toll Road, and the resort easy to find. Would definitely recommend the Belfry for a golf break and hope to return soon. All the arrangements through Yourgolftravel went entirely according to plan, and we had a great trip.

The Brabazon course is a great test of golf. The 10th and 18th holes are particularly memorable from Ryder Cup days. There are no weak holes.

Difficult courses for an 18 handicap club golfer

The problem with The Belfry for me is the impersonal nature of the hotel complex. It is far too big and busy for a quiet golfing weekend. I hate to say this (and I am not naturally snobbish) but there were a large number of rather oikish people staying at the hotel on this occasion. There were also some rather badly behaved golfers on the course. An example: being practically knocked for six when walking through some swing doors by a rough type who didn't even apologise, then holding open a door for a guy carrying a tray of drinks who didn't even look at me let alone thank me. On the course we were pressured from behind in a rude way when there was a group in front of us within range. So don't go there unless you can avoid these types. I would love to play The Brabazon again on a quiet day with no pressure.

Brabazon a must play

The Brabazon is a fantastic course, and certainly met expectations. On day two, we played the PGA National. It absolutely poured with rain, and there were high winds, and it was absolutely no fun whatsoever! I doubt I broke 150. My advice- if it rains, go to the bar. I remember the tees were at the back and looking at a 180 yard par 3 over water, thinking I may as well just throw this ball into the water. The 12th was a real low. Straight into the gale, it was around 550. It should have been a par 8. We all took at least 6 to reach the green. The hotel wasn't in great condition, however I believe it has been renovated recently. Overall, I'd recommend.

The Belfry is only a few miles from where we live, we chose it as a venue to take our friends to play. We enjoyed two smashing days there- the hotel staff were first class, the refurbished hotel is wonderful and the choice of food excellent. The golf courses are very well kept and always a real challenge. My friend is very critical of golf courses and he has played at most of the top ones in the world while servicing on the Royal Brittania, but he loved the whole experience and I'm sure we will be playing there again.

Play the Brabazon

The Belfry was £99 for a B&B and 2 rounds of golf. Lunch and dinner with drinks added was £85 for 2 people. The biggest pro shop with the latest gear was impressive & we were served efficiently and politely. 

The Derby, the easiest of the 3 courses was flattering to my game. The back nine are more interesting than the front and the course is good for all abilities. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were in ok condition. The PGA national: great condition, challenging and had character with water/ditches and some lovely vistas of great English countryside. No pin positions on either courses. 

Pull trolleys were expensive at £7.50. The range was excellent with automatic ball tees, great large mirrors and £5.50 for 50 balls which was ok. We ate in Sam's clubhouse which was reasonable for food (pizza £10), but pricey for drinks. A large Cappucinno was £4.95 and a pint was about the same. Staff were very helpful.

Bad weather when I've played

Have been there three times and despite it being summer, is has rained or snowed (yes, snowed on!!!) on each time. Hotel is OK though it has since been refurbished. The food is fresh, plentiful and with good variety. Bar prices are high but not London levels. The changing facilities were small but well appointed. 

 I don't rate the Derby Course - unimaginative and no better than many a municipal. PGA is as at least as good as the much vaunted Brabazon. My party thought the Brabazon is a bit over-hyped and a bit of a slog. Perhaps getting soaked coloured our perceptions! We did in fact get snowed off in July and got vouchers to return and play again. The shop staff were somewhat dour.

The hotel was undergoing extensive refurbishment at the time which we were not told about. This time we played the Brabazon and the Derby. It was a better package when it was the Brabazon and the PGA. Dinner seems to have been removed from the packages which is a shame because the process remained the same. Nevertheless, great fun playing the Brabazon and recalling the Ryder Cups. The 10th hole is iconic but my favourite hole is the last where you have to decide how much corner to cut off the tee and then over another daunting lake to fly onto a 3 tier green. If in doubt play safe off the tee and lay up with your second. We played a 4BBB on both days which is a fun way to play the courses, especially the Brabazon.

One of the best

The Brabazon should be on your list of courses to play. It is hard but really worth the effort to get round it. As an old member said as we came off the 18th of the derby course the day before, 'take plenty of balls and you'll really enjoy it'. In the end I was 3 balls down but having birdied to 10th I will be back again some day soon. The food is excellent, and the accommodation was certainly better than most. There has been construction works during my 2 trips to the belfry but at no point did it affect our stay or play.

Do not be overawed. Treat the course with respect. Do not complicate your playing of the course, keep it simple. Down the middle and center of the green will get you round. Play within your ability.

Over-crowded and has lost some of its original ambiance

The Brabazon does have an ambiance of its own with memories of past Ryder Cup matches. However, if you are not as old as me I don't think you would feel the same way. Holes 10 and 18 remain two of the most iconic holes in golf and is a reason for playing the course alone. On the negative side, the course was too crowded when we played it.

Course not in great condition

Hotel overpriced the food and drink on the back of the Ryder cup. A couple of signature holes. However, the standards on the course are slipping and paying more for the privilege.

My Caddy Tip - "Keep the ball below the hole on 18."

Great overnight stay in the hotel and the course was in great shape. All members of staff were friendly and would do anything for the guests. Highly recommended.

Will go back again

Hotel and PGA were stunning. Brabazon was in poor condition. Although it's early in the season, I expected better.

Venue has everything you need for a short break

My favourite hole is the 4th on the PGA National Course. Although, the Brabazon is my favourite course on the complex. The advise I would give anyone playing for the first time, is to play your normal game, take your time and don't try anything too spectacular. It is very easy with the reputation of the course to let it get the better of you, as I did my first time. The whole complex/hotel and staff are amazingly very friendly and helpful considering the amount of people they have to deal will. The complex is very popular because it caters for your every need. With it's bars and night club, there is no need to leave the complex once your there.

My Caddy Tip - "Play your normal game and if you can get there early enough, have a good practice before you go out."

I'd go back

Hotel was terrific. I would recommend arranging dinner before you go. We played in a shotgun start on the Brabazon on the second day and teed off the 18th at 7.45am having had a late night, which was slightly daunting! Great fun playing all the holes that we are so familiar with from the Ryder Cups in the 80's and early 90's. One negative was the sat-nav yardage on the buggy wasn't working properly, and no discount was offered when I pointed it out at the end of the round. Very enjoyable and a great trip for a group.

My Caddy Tip - "Don't hit your ball off the fairway, especially on the PGA national and watch out for the electricity pylons on the Derby."

I would go back

I found the PGA and Brabazon courses were fantastic. The Derby was a bit boring to play but in good condition. The food and drinks were very expensive, but I would love to go back again.

My Caddy Tip - "Keep your head down."
