The Belfry - The Brabazon

Designer: Martyn Shaw

Course Description:

The Belfry has played host to more Ryder Cup matches than any other venue in the world. Steeped in tournament history, its stunning championship courses have provoked some of the most dramatic moments in the history of the sport. The majestic fairways and carpet-smooth greens of The Brabazon form a world-famous stage on which some of golf’s most exhilarating dramas have played out. Its meticulous design involves tight fairways, perilous bunkers, lakes and fast undulating greens, creating iconic holes that have challenged some of the games greatest. Walk in the footsteps of legends… Seve’s historic drive onto the 10th green, Sam Torrance’s famous putt that won the 1985 Ryder Cup match for the European Team or Christie O’Connor Jr’s belligerent 2 iron across the lake at the 18th. Who can forget Nick Faldo’s hole-in-one at the 14th in 1993, Paul Azinger’s chip-in at the 18th or Paul McGinley’s winning putt for Europe in 2002, the list goes on...
