The Belfry’s New Day renovation has continued with the installation of a unique and eye catching new lighting feature.
With the world famous Ryder Cup venue being transformed and enhanced by owners KSL Capital Partners LLC, Chantelle Lighting were asked to manufacture a bespoke lighting feature which would be the first thing people see as they enter the historic Belfry Hotel.
Working in partnership with PING and designers Greyline, Chantelle Lighting produced a chandelier made from 140 brand new PING putters and irons.
Anthony Holly, Chantelle Lighting Managing Director, a keen golfer himself, said: “The Belfry is a special venue for amateur and professional golfers alike and the New Day transformations will help to make it even more iconic. We were delighted to be asked to be involved in the renovations and are really pleased that the hard work of our design and manufacturing teams has produced this unique chandelier.
“We are sure the PING chandelier will become an iconic part of The Belfry Hotel, welcoming amateur and professional golfers to the venue for many years to come.”
Dave Fanning, PING European Marketing Manager, added: “We have a long history of working with The Belfry and were really pleased to be asked to supply some of our top of the range clubs to Chantelle Lighting for this innovative chandelier. It will provide a fantastic welcome to golfers staying at The Belfry Hotel and hopefully inspire them to play some excellent rounds of golf.”
Linda Matlin, Head of FF&E at De Vere Hotels and De Vere Village Urban Resorts which runs The Belfry, said: “We have worked alongside Chantelle Lighting on various projects, and, known for their expertise in bespoke lighting, we felt they were exactly the right people to create our golf club chandelier. The artwork was very impressive and we are delighted with the end result. We are confident it will prove a hit with the many golf fans visiting The Belfry every day.”
Gavin Liddle from Greyline said: “We were really pleased with the finished chandelier and think it complements the rest of the New Day renovations perfectly, creating a real eye catching welcome to The Belfry.”
