Great course and set up
This is a great course and set up. In my opinion the back 9 is amongst the best anywhere in the midlands. It’s beautiful, particularly when the deer are roaming.
Course and greens in tremendous condition for this time of year. Greens very true.
Only slight niggle was the pace of play, felt like it was over booked a little which isn’t ideal for a top end course like this. Spacing out the tee times a little more or having a marshall on the course would help massively as we had to wait a lot on the tees.
Forest of Arden - really good course
The course was in beautiful condition. It was a challenging course without being too hard. The greens were in excellent condition. Lovely wildlife with deer amongst other animals.
The course and facilities at the forest of Arden were luxurious and the fairways and greens l spectacular. Challenging course but top class and exceptional value for money.
Great course , greens superb. Back in a few months. Hopefully I will play better.
Played a mid week evening round as a 1 ball. Immediately could see the course was in impeccable condition. Greens were undulating and challenging and general layout was very forgiving for a championship course, except the 18th which proved to be a round killer for me. 100% will be playing again thorougly enjoyed that round!!
Enjoyable two rounds.
Very nice courses and complex, strangely for time of year both courses need some rain, nothing growing much just off the greens, even at this early stage of the season a few holes have lots of divots with the amount of play they get. Probably will be a lot better in a few more weeks.
I played a two ball on Saturday 29/2/22 with a 12.10 tee off. I’m a very average golfer myself so I certainly feel that courses should be available to all levels of golfer. However the pace of play on Saturday was ridiculous. We ended up having to walk the last 3 holes even though we had given ourselves almost 5 hours of daylight!
The course definitely needs marshalls to maintain both pace of play and basic etiquette. We saw trolleys dragged over greens, we cleared lager and cider cans from tees. There were groups more interested in boozing than keeping up with the group ahead.
I have played this course on numerous occasions and it is fantastic. With just a little more attention this could have been another great experience.
Forest Arden Course
The course was and is generally in great condition, pace of play depressingly frustrating and with a one ball in front and behind but the course backed up so after around 12-14 holes pretty difficult to focus an concentrate.
The clubhouse is tired and for a Marriot needs a decent menu and bar refit , doesn't compare well to the Belfry off course.
Course staff great , Pro shop , starter good but no on course management with marshall on pace of play
Great day, and friendly members
Got invited to play with some members who guided me around the course. Great bunch.
Nice course but too slow
Went for late afternoon round as a two ball. Wasn’t told there was a club match on and as a result were held up Behind two slow playing four balls who wouldn’t let us play through. Ended up walking off after 12 as wouldn’t have made it around anyway. Nice course though.
Arden course gem under weather
Arden course is a fantastic layout however the front 9 greens had been tined, there was goose dropping all over the first and 8th as well as it not being as well defined as the back nine , we would have been really disappointed had we paid £95 for an earlier tee But the back 9 is as good as anywhere I’ve played , clubhouse was really slow service waited 45 mins to order food and had to leave as it was an hour wait for the food to be delivered!!
Great course, good value, very enjoyable. lacking someone at starters hut to welcome you and answer questions especially for first timers.
Definitely needs a sign after the 9th green to direct you to the 10th tee, the one that is there is all the way up at the event venue and is hidden by the bushes, we went in completely the opposite direction leading to an unnecessary delay
