Well looked after

The course staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming. This was the first time playing at the Belfry and I will definitely be back. Being driven to the Derby course is a great little touch too.

Be prepared to wait if you’re following a group in a competition

We played as a 2 ball and had a 3 ball in front of us. We had a single golfer appear behind us so had to let him play through. We were then met with another shortly after, did the same again and luckily they paired together. We were then all held up due to this along with the 4 ball 2 groups in front of us refusing to let anyone through because they were playing on a competition. I felt it was very petty and not good sportsmanship, at the time of booking there was no mention of a competition so this was the first we heard about it. All in all, it was a very stop start game of golf taking well over 4 hours and affected our stride of play.

Excellent as you’d expect

You can’t really beat the belfry for golf. It’s a good all round experience although the only pace of play was slightly slow but not the end of the world. Greens were amazing for the middle of winter

Somewhere different

Thought we would play a different course . Everything was good we got taken to first tee of the Derby course . Good information by the driver that took us . Personally I think the fairways need a bit of work . It was quite damp so heavy underfoot. The greens were perfect and difficult to read . All in all a very enjoyable day . Very expensive in the 19th avoid if you can . The course well worth the £20 green fees .

Shocking Course

The state of the fairways if you can call them that were shocking! The photos in the app aren't even related to this course. Expected the course to be in excellent condition due to the location.
It's an embarresment to the Belfry name.
