The PGA National, having hosted two European Tour events, is one of the West Midlands finest golf courses, and fast becoming one of the top courses in the United Kingdom. Recognised by the PGA as a world-class tournament course and the only PGA branded course in England, the PGA National is a must for golfers who enjoy the creativity and shot-making required for links golf.
The majestic fairways and carpet-smooth greens of The Brabazon form a world-famous stage on which some of golfs 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.
As you'd expect, it's a challenging golf course, but a must-play for anyone who is serious about the sport. Walk in the footsteps of golfing legends for example 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. More recent changes have seen the 6th hole become one of the most demanding, rated highly by modern-day great Lee Westwood.
