The Belfry - Derby Course

Star r3.5

Voucher information

About the course

The Brabazon at the Belfry is a must-play golf course. It’s steeped in history and Ryder Cup memories and you’ve just got to tee it up there and follow in the footsteps of the golfing greats and legends. The boisterous galleries won’t be there but nevertheless the hairs on the back of your neck will almost certainly be standing up, specially on the tee at the do-or-die short par 4 10th and as you seek to finish with a flourish at the thrilling finale.

You’re guaranteed to have a ball and it’s a cast iron certainty that you’ll always remember your approach shot over the lake (hopefully!) in front of the 18th green. It’s the stuff golfing dreams and legends are made of though the Brabazon can be a bit too demanding and intimidating for less experienced golfers. The Belfry is also the home of the splendid Dave Thomas, who designed the PGA National (see review below), and the Derby golf course as well as some of the best practice facilities you’ll find anywhere. Oh, and there’s a top hotel on site.

In 1975 work began on two golf courses – The Brabazon and The Derby – by Dave Thomas and Peter Alliss. Once the land was purchased, planning permission was eventually granted for two golf courses. The golf courses at the Belfry were to be called The Derby, after The Earl of Derby, and The Brabazon, after Lord Brabazon of Tara. Peter Alliss and Dave Thomas designed the golf courses and the task of building them started in December 1974.

In October 1976, Raymond Floyd (American Masters Champion) played the golf course with Peter Alliss and Maurice Bembridge. Both courses were opened on schedule in June 1977. The Brabazon golf course was later officially opened with a challenge match, Severiano Ballesteros and Johnny Miller against Tony Jacklin and Brian Barnes.
