Greens poor

The greens were generally poor. Have they had some disease in the past? Otherwise the course was ok. No issues with pace of play. The price of £39 is more than you should pay for this course but we’re in different times. I understand that.

After finding the deal at £30plus booking fee at a steal, we were both excited to get out again and start playing golf in 2021. Arriving at the course found plenty of spaces available for parking and got ourselves ready to get checked in. Met by friendly staff at the course and had no issues getting checked in. With all the COVID-19 restrictions I thought the club had done their very best to facilitate the booking in process, clear instruction on what we needed to follow. In the van and delivered to the 1st tee on the Derby. From initial views the course seemed to be in top top shape as to be expected. Whilst playing we got caught up between several 4 balls and caused our speed of play to slow considerably. With several 4 balls ahead we were going nowhere but for the weather to be glorious we took our time. Fairways in most places were perfect but annoying that in places looked like player had forgot to replace their divots and repair pitch marks. green were running slower than I remembered but more disappointing was areas around some of the green were in poor condition. I expected these to be immaculate based on fact there hasn’t been any play on them for months. Whilst green seemed to be running true there were many patches of sand or again poorly repaired pitch marks left by other players. Bunkers that I played out of seemed to be ok, but one particular hole one bunker was still under repair. I would expect that all bunkers wouldn’t be under any repair when course hasn’t long reopened for play.
For all said still £30 per player per round to play at one of the best venues in the area was a steal. Hope to return again soon.

The Belfry Derby Course, two of us played 01/04/2021 and the standard of the \Green's was very poor, I have stayed at the belfry and played Golf on a few occasion's and seen green's so poor? Bumpy ,filled in with sand ? the golf ball would not run true. I will not be playing there again.

The poor relation

Played on a glorious march day after a reasonably dry spell so the course was OK. It was just after lockdown restrictions were lifted and evident that Annfield work done during that period was on the other courses. The greens were slow and very patchy but it's understandable given the circumstances. The set up at the resort is superb and I look forward to returning to play one of the better courses

Out of Lockdown

The Derby is probably the poor cousin of the Brabazon and PGA. It's not a bad course, but for the green fees charged, not great value. Recommend 2 for 1 in this case.

Fantastic complex, as you'd expect from such an historical venue. Run very efficiently.

Disappointed

First day back on the course after Lockdown, the greens were terrible. After such a long break I expected the greens to have been in tip top condition, sadly full of humps and hollows.

Nice course and beautiful complex, greens were in awful shape but can’t really complain for £25. Will definitely be coming back.

Lovely day out

Very nice course with plenty of forgiving hole's for the beginner. But still would challenge experienced golfers. Would play here again for sure.

Good course but not memorable

The derby course didn’t have much about it to make you remember it or want to come back and play it again but it was good enough for £25. The course was in good condition for winter and was friendly to all levels of golfer with it being quite open off the tee.

A lovely autumn day at the Belfry

We had had the pleasure of playing the Brabazon course at the Belfry a few weeks ago and I had suggested to my playing partner that we come back sometime and play the easier and cheaper Derby course sometime. Yesterday we made the trip up from Brackley and we had a fantastic day. From the moment we arrived we were treated SO well. Check in was effortless and then the guys who drive you over to the first tee were so friendly.
We came up behind a 4 ball on the 3rd tee who immediately let us through and we never looked back. Finished our round in 3 hours 8 minutes and found the lovely van driver waiting to take us back to the clubhouse.
The course was in great condition and the greens were fantastic.
Well done the Belfry. We will be back!!!
