Although Birmingham is not part of Warwickshire, it does lie in the middle of the county. When visiting Warwickshire for a golf break, flying to Birmingham and staying there is a good idea, as many of the best Warwickshire golf courses are in close proximity of Birmingham. The Belfry is the most famous golf club in Warwickshire, as it has hosted the Ryder Cup on four occasions and has staged numerous European Tour events. The Belfry has three golf courses, with the Barbazon course as the must-play course. Other top golf courses in Warwickshire are: Sutton Coldfield Golf Club, Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Edgbaston Golf Club and Copt Heath Golf Club.
Warwickshire is a county known for its sleepy villages and the bustle of its vibrant market towns. Warwickshire’s heritage stretches back for centuries, so make sure to pay a visit to Roman Alcester, the castles at Warwick and Kenilworth, Shakespeare’s Stratford, Northern Warwickshire’s links with George Eliot, or relive Rugby’s sporting history.
Warwickshire is accessible through the air via Birmingham Airport.
