The PGA is to have new offices as part of multi million pound plans to make The Belfry Europe’s leading 5-star golf and leisure resort.

The proposals include replacing the existing buildings with a new ‘state of the art’ five star 500-bedroom hotel, new golfing facilities and a new headquarters for The Professional Golfers’ Association which is housed at The Belfry along with its National Training Academy Centre and The PGAs of Europe offices.

A brand new building next to the current golf academy at The Belfry entrance is part of the comprehensive overall plan. If approved, work on the new Belfry is planned to start in 2008 with completion earmarked for 2013.

PGA chief executive Sandy Jones said, “The PGA is absolutely delighted to support the ambitious plans for The Belfry which will enhance its reputation as one of the most prestigious venues in world golf.

“This exciting project will also enable the PGA to continue to deliver its world class education and training programs from The Belfry as well as creating the ideal environment from which to develop and implement the education strategies required to meet the needs of the game in the 21st century.”
