Standing in over 300 acres of parkland, near the Peak District National Park, Breadsall Priory, Marriott Hotel & Country Club offers contrasting 36 holes of golf in beautiful surroundings.
The two courses, The championship Priory and the Moorland, are both popular with members and visitors, not least because they offer a combination of exciting golf coupled with superb views over the surrounding countryside.
The Priory, the eldest of the two, was designed by David Cox and opened for play in 1977. It measures 6,100 yards from the medal tees, which is relatively short by modern standards, but don’t let that mislead you because it is also tight and tree-lined and offers a real test to all but the most accurate strikers.
Cox’s lay-out has numerous fine holes, not the least of which are the panoramic 363 yard par 4 11th and the demanding 424 yard par 4 16th. However, the pick of the bunch might well be the delightful 183 yard par 3 17th, which is played from an elevated tee to a generous green guarded by bunkers and a ditch to the rear.
Set on an adjacent hillside, it is ideal for year-round golf, the newer Moorland Course measures a manageable 6,054 yards and affords fine views of the hotel and the surrounding area. Like the Priory, this Donald Steel design features a plethora of memorable holes including the demanding 452 yard par 4 2nd, the picturesque 126 yard par 3 6th and the 406 yard par 4 12th where a tall tree guards the right side of the landing area.
