The Brabazon is one of the most recognisable courses in the UK, with iconic holes like the drivable 10th and treacherous 18th all too easy to picture. In recent years The Belfry has worked hard to present the course in tip-top condition and its efforts have been successful. The fairways are lush yet firm, and the greens are among the quickest in the country.
Panellists' comments: "The course is exceptionally manicured"; "Memorable par 4s, most notably the 6th, 10th and 18th"
