Review for The Belfry (Brabazon)

Reviewer Score:


We played the Brabazon as part of a £99 deal (plus a round on the PGA, a night in the hotel plus breakfast) on Sunday 29th and Monday 30th March. We had stayed in the hotel the night before, it is a bit dated and could do with a bit of an upgrade but the room was comfy and breakfast was very good. The pro shop is awesome, the practice facilities are decent, you have to pay for range balls as it's a 4 star hotel and not a 5 star hotel like the Celtic Manor where you get them for free and a load of other personal touches but all in all we had a great couple of days at the Belfry. We had to tee off the 11th to start as they were working on the 10th. I'd say the greens on the Brabazon were even better than the PGA, they were unbelievably quick but receptive to a full shot. There is a lot of water so take plenty of balls but the course is fair, the 18th is just a ridiculously tough hole and you just don't appreciate how steep the 3 tier green is on TV. The complex was really busy both days we were there so there is a lot of traffic on the course and they probably overplay them but keep the condition to a high standard. I probably wouldn't pay £70 to play it though. BB
