Located in the heart of the midland, Forest of Arden Golf & Country Club is recognised as one of the UKs premier golfing resorts, boasting a luxury hotel, state of the art facilities and two outstanding golf courses. The feature course at the resort is the Arden, a Donald Steele designed championship course that has hosted numerous international tournaments including the British Masters and the English Open. This par-72 parkland course has a layout that blends well into the natural contours of the surrounding landscape and makes good use of the many majestic oak trees to create a course that feels more mature than it is and immaculately maintained from tee to green all year round, meaning that visitors will always experience the highest quality of golf on offer at the venue. Even from the yellow tees, the Arden measures a healthy 6500 yards and has been designed to offer a true test of golf for players of all skill levels, with a variety of tee boxes, numerous water hazards, tree lined fairways and unforgiving rough that make this course a challenging but enjoyable experience. There are many memorable holes throughout the course, some to mention are the holes from the 6th through to the 9th, which feature a number of fantastic holes including the 8th, a tight par-3 with a green that is guarded on both sides by bodies of water, while the back 9 is visually stunning with it’s lines of mature Oaks while being technically demanding, the final two holes in particular being very impressive and will have golfers facing a real test of their game before heading back to the clubhouse. Like many of the Marriott venues, the Forest of Arden offers the highest quality of championship golf, in a resort that has everything you need for a stay & play escape and is a pleasure to visit all year round.
