I play there a bit and it's decent but not awesome. The PGA is the all round better course IMHO. The Brabazon is a great show course. It is just so expensive to eat and drink!!! £12 for a bacon sandwich and a pint..... £18 for a cheese toastie with chips and a pint :shock:

Maybe it was awesome because it was all free haha

Thanks for the feedback all. Belfry is an interesting idea but is pricey, another suggestion is Forest of Arden, good tracks and a bit cheaper.

I'm working on some options, so watch this space!

Im stopping & playing at Forest of Arden in 2 weeks so can report back what its like at this time of year,

I've played there before and the Arden course is very good, Aylesford course is ok.

Hotel prices arent cheap, but cheaper than The Belfry.

I'm stopping as part of a weekend away for my anniverary so will get Mrs H to check out the Spa as well.

I concur with hursty about the course & the hotel - I went on a one night / two rounds deal about 5 years ago & my lasting memory (other than the Arden course being a real cracker) was that my mate refused to buy a beer when he heard what the price was, so he ordered a pot of tea - It cost him £6 odd & I nearly wet myself laughing so much :lol:

Play the Arden regularly. No where near as pricey as belfry. Spa is decent and the back nine on the Arden is superb. I play in the winter series there for £40 a time. Great venue and easy to get to.

hursty, it can be a bit wet this time of year around the greens but fairways usually fare well

Don't know if it's reopened but Mentmore went to pot a few years ago.

We were due to play a 36 hole comp there but it got cancelled at very short notice due to financial issues.

It was nice to play this years event within driving distance of home, but as to future events, I prefer 2 rounds either side of one night accommodation, rather than 18 (or 27) holes in a day - Location-wise, I believe if the events is somewhere north of London more players will be inclined to travel down from the Midlands & the North (maybe even Scotland?)
Likewise, if the Northern Forum Day is closer to the Midlands, I believe more of us Southern Softies will be inclined to play as the initial journey will not be as penal (?)

You then basically have 2 Midlands events though?

Im based in the midlands so would benefit from either, however, personally i think the 2 events should be kept as "Northern" & "Southern"

The traditional 2 rounds, 1 night stop for North & South Champs with a 1 day "meet" for West & East Mids to fill the gaps between the May (North) & Sept (South) comps?

Geographically based on Leeds and above, Oxford and below, Nottingham as the centre as per my childish use of paint below......

I did say "closer to the Midlands" i.e. not as far north as Scotland, but based on your excellent "retro" map, in the North area - I attended the 2015 one near Liverpool & that was doable even for me (an old geezer with a dodgy spine!)
