The Belfry officially re-opens

The Belfry has been officially re-launched following a £26 million refurbishment programme, with an event for sports stars, key industry figures and corporate clients with Ryder Cup captains Ian Woosnam OBE and Bernard Gallacher OBE in attendance. The world’s only four-time Ryder Cup venue, The Belfry’s Brabazon course, was at the heart of celebrations with 100 guests testing their skills on the Dave Thomas and Peter Alliss designed course.

In the evening, guests were treated to hospitality and cuisine, in The Belfry’s new Brabazon Bar and The Ryder Grill. The evening was rounded off by an entertainment in the newly refurbished Bel-Air. Managing director of The Belfry, Lynn Hood, commented, “This is a proud moment for all of those who have been involved in this refurbishment process, which started in April 2013. The events today are the result of all the hard work and dedication of our fantastic team, and it was great to have so many influential individuals and guests here to celebrate this moment with us.”
