Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club
North & South Regional Finals,
John Letters Plate Final

Where the game’s greatest come to play

The Marriott Forest of Arden, Hotel and Country Club, is one of the UK's most impressive golf destinations, featuring two top-class courses - the Arden Championship Course, designed by Donald Steel is an 18 hole, 7,213 yards, par 72 course. The club is located on 10,000 acres in the heart of the Midlands, surrounded by ancient woodlands and natural lakes. Forest of Arden has played host to some of golf’s most prominent tournaments, including the British Masters and English Open.

Beyond the greens, enjoy a stay at the magnificent Hotel and Country Club which has recently undergone a £5 million renovation, an elegant country retreat featuring the Cedarwood Spa, tennis courts, three gyms, an indoor pool, and a croquet lawn. Savour fine cuisine and wines in the AA Rosette Oaks Grill and Bar; or stop by the Zest Restaurant and Bar for casual dining throughout the day.

"Following the huge success of last year's Matchplay Championship Regional Finals, we are delighted to be hosting this fantastic event for the second time. We are looking forward to welcoming back the wide-range of golfers that this tournament attracts," commented Ian Burns, Director of Golf, Marriott Forest of Arden. "With a rich heritage in tournament golf and our location in the Midlands, just south of Birmingham, we are ideally placed to welcome golfers from all over the UK. The Matchplay Championship just goes from strength to strength."

"The Marriott Forest of Arden plays an important part in the Matchplay Championship, providing the complete golf experience for our competitors," commented John Woosey, Managing Director of the Matchplay Championship. "You only have to look at the list of winners the Forest of Arden has produced, in order to realise that this is a quality championship venue. Three-time winner on this year's European Tour Thomas Bjorn, former Ryer Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie and Open Championship Darren Clarke are just a few to have won here. Clearly it has identified great champions over the years and now plays an integral role in determining which players are whisked off on the trip-of-a-lifetime to Dubai and complete in our Grand Final."
