A top ranking UK resort with 36 holes including a European Tour host course

Nestled in an expansive 10,000-acre woodland where deer freely wander, the Forest of Arden Golf Resort is an embodiment of luxury and golfing excellence. This four-star haven is ideally located between the bustling cities of Birmingham and Coventry, making it a perfect getaway that’s easily accessible whether by car, train, or plane.

As you enter the resort, the allure of 214 elegantly designed bedrooms beckons. Each room, a testament to comfort and opulence, is equipped with everything to make your stay truly memorable. Complementing the lavish accommodations is an array of leisure facilities that promise relaxation and recreation in equal measure.

Golfing enthusiasts are in for a treat. The resort boasts two outstanding golf courses. The Forest of Arden Golf Course, renowned for hosting prestigious tournaments like the British Masters and English Open, offers a challenging terrain that has witnessed the prowess of legends like Colin Montgomerie and Ian Woosnam. For those seeking a slightly different challenge, the Aylesford Course, though shorter, is no less captivating with its intricate design and strategic hazards.

Post a thrilling round of golf, you can indulge in an exquisite dining experience. The Forest of Arden presents two culinary jewels. The Cast Iron Grill & Restaurant, celebrated for its international dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients, promises a dining affair to remember. For those seeking a more laid-back setting, Zest offers a diverse array of light dishes and snacks, perfect to enjoy on an outdoor terrace as you sip a drink under the open sky.

But the indulgence doesn’t end there. The resort’s spa invites you to immerse yourself in a world of tranquillity. Be it the indoor pool, the steam room, sauna, or the plethora of rejuvenating treatments available at the beauty salon, every aspect of the spa ensures you’re pampered to perfection.

Beyond the boundaries of the resort, Warwickshire unveils its treasures. Attractions like Cadbury World, Warwick Castle, and Drayton Manor Theme Park are just a short drive away. Theatre lovers can revel in performances at the Royal Shakespeare theatres, while adventure enthusiasts might find the expansive Wedgnock Rifle Range irresistible.

One of the resort’s unique features is its proximity to urban amenities despite its serene setting. It’s a mere four miles from landmarks like the NEC Complex and Birmingham Airport, and even the vibrant Bullring shopping complex in Birmingham is within walking distance.

In essence, the Forest of Arden Golf Resort is more than just a destination; it’s an experience. With its blend of world-class golf, luxurious accommodations, gourmet dining, and rejuvenating spa treatments, it’s clear why this resort is a top choice for those seeking the perfect golf escape. Whether you’re planning a short weekend getaway or an extended vacation, Forest of Arden promises an unparalleled retreat into Warwickshire’s heart.

A championship course and European Tour host venue by Donald Steel

Tucked within the sprawling Forest of Arden Golf Resort is its crown jewel, The Arden Golf Course. Designed with precision and passion by the renowned architect Donald Steel, this course has garnered acclaim not just for its breathtaking layout, but also for its rich history in hosting esteemed tournaments. Legends of the game, including the likes of Colin Montgomerie and Ian Woosnam, have graced its fairways and etched their names in its storied legacy.

Stretching over 7,213 yards when played from the championship tees, The Arden is a par-72 course that offers a formidable challenge. It demands not just length but also accuracy, with mature oak trees lining its fairways and a plethora of water hazards and bunkers lying in wait to test a golfer’s strategy and skill. Every hole presents its own unique challenge, ensuring that golfers remain engaged and enthralled from the first tee shot to the final putt.

Perhaps the course’s most iconic hole is the 18th, named the ‘Tontine’. Playing just over 200 yards and set against the backdrop of a serene lake, this par-3 offers both beauty and challenge, capturing the essence of what makes The Arden truly special.

But it’s not just the design that sets The Arden apart. Its immaculate condition, thanks to the meticulous care of the greenkeeping team, ensures a perfect playing surface year-round. The greens are particularly noteworthy, offering a true roll that rewards well-struck putts.

The Arden Golf Course is more than just a place to play golf; it’s a journey through a landscape sculpted with golfing perfection in mind. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or an enthusiastic amateur, The Arden promises an unforgettable golfing experience, blending challenge with beauty in Warwickshire’s heart.

Course overview

The Forest of Arden is considered to be one of the UKs premier golfing destinations, a serenely located venue, nestled in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside that boasts two fantastic golf courses offering unparalleled opportunities for golfers of all skill levels. Complimenting the Arden championship course is the Aylesford course, a par 69 that is shorter than the venues sister course but still packed with many of the hallmarks of a Donald Steel designed course, with fantastic course layout, green design and strategically placed bunkers, all while being completed to the same high standard as the Arden. So if you and your group are considering visiting this prestigious venue for a golfing weekend, we highly recommend the addition of at least one round on this course during your visit.

  • How do GSW keep money safe?

    We are extremely proud of the service we provide and a large part of this is ensuring our client’s money is safe. Our practices comply with the 2018 package travel directive meaning that your money is safe with both ourselves and the venues your choose to visit.

    The money for your golf break is paid into a trust account run by an independent partner, so you have peace of mind that no matter what happens, your money is being looked after.

  • What happens if we can’t go on our planned trip?

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
