Our selected golf courses:
Forest of Arden - The Belfry - The Warwickshire

Forest of Arden - Arden  Architect: D. Steel (1970)  18 holes: 6420yds: par 72.

A inland English gem.  A perfect piece of land for golfing with gentle undulations and ancient forest to which a few water hazards have been added.  The front nine is quite tight and needs to be played more than once: the back nine is more expansive and inhabited by the magnificent Black Deer that were introduced in the 1800s.

Forest of Arden - Aylesford
Architect: D. Steel (1970)
18 holes: 5,801yds: par 69.
A gentler course, not without its golfing hazards and maintained to the same high standards as its bigger brother.  The Aylesford course provides a great venue for your warm-up round on the day you arrive.  Or maybe if it's your first ever golf weekend the ideal place to spread your golfing wings away from the pressures of a major course.

The Aylesford course

THe Belfry - Brabazon
Architect: P. Alliss & D. Thomas (1977)
18 holes: 7,196yds: par 72.
Arguably the best known course in the British Isles as the setting for so many magical Ryder Cup moments over its years as home to this enthralling competition.  See if you can hit a 2-iron like Christy...


The Belfry - PGA NationaL & Derby
Don't forget the other two courses at the Belfry, The PGA National a very American design with water everywhere and the shorter, more friendly Derby course.

THe Warwickshire
There are 36 holes at the sprawling Warwickshire Golf and Country Club.  Designed by the American Karl Litten, the courses have a distinctly US feel to them as they wend their way over this huge estate.

Architect: Fowler & Simpson (1923)
18 holes: 6,260yds: par 70.
A course that you have probably never heard of (despite being an Open qualifying venue) but will be delighted to have discovered. Short by modern standards but don't equate that with easy, as the twists and turns through the Warwickshire countryside requires thought and placement all the way around. Following which a very warm welcome awaits you in the Clubhouse.

Other courses to consider:

Nearby you will also find the delightful course at Little Aston, a very private Club with a much admired parkland course (and splendid putting Green) where visitors may play during the week.
