The Forest of Arden, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club, is one of Britains top golf resorts and its magnificent Arden Course is renowned around the world as one of the European Tours leading venues.
The Arden Course
The Arden Course was designed by Donald Steel and built on Lord Aylesfords vast 10,000-acre estate back in the early 1970s. Since it was completed, it has played host to some incredible and memorable tournaments, including seven English Opens and five British Masters, and has seen the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Thomas Bjrn, Darren Clarke and Robert Allenby leave victorious.

Arguably the signature hole is the par 3 18th which requires a 200-yard carry over a lake to an undulating green perched to the side of the hotel.
