Lovely course alongside two beauties

There is only one downside, and that’s the quests who play it! Loads of pitch markers and divots that don’t get repaired or replaced. Ground staff do a great job, greens are great, fast and true. Wide fairways but if you wander!!!

Derby Course Review

Nice course at Belfry but gave up after 13 holes due to incredible slow play, waiting on the tee for up to 10 mins on most holes so not enjoyable.

Shame, as staff course and amenities good but obviously over selling the course and not checking handicap certificates which slowed things down badly.

Another great round

My 2nd time playing the Derby course and the course knowledge really helped with shot selection from the tee where accuracy is rewarded. The course overall was in really good condition after the constant rain for the previous week, despite a few fairway bunkers still having standing water - just shows how well the rest of the course is maintained. Greens were receptive, had some break to them although being on the slow side but it's a real shame a lack of players repair their pitch-marks on and around the greens, causing some putts to bobble badly. Overall though a fantastic day out on a brilliant course and will definitely be playing again in the near future.

Derby April 2020

Great day - layout great. Greens need a cut and rolling, front 9 especially bad, back 9 better, but having played the PGA the week before the greens on the derby need some tlc, but a very nice round

Good value

Have not played the Derby before, and it was good value at £30 for a Sunday early afternoon tee time. Nice simple course not too long. Not kept in same condition as PGA National or Brabazon by any means, more comparable with a municipal course in terms of condition of greens and fairways but it was perfect for what we wanted, a first round out for around 3 years. Course slowed around hole 10 and by hole 13 we were waiting longer and longer to play every shot so we called it a day. No fault of the course. Staff very friendly, enjoyable afternoon.

Not worth it

The greens are some of the worst I have played on. They have huge divots taken out of them. it looks like there was a disease on it and they have killed whatever it was off but all is left now is hundreds of bare patches amongst the grass on the greens. It's impossible to putt on and ruins what could be an OK course.

Good value for money

For £30 it's a decent course, but would recommend only playing in a 4 ball as it is slow

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.

Chris Thomas

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.
