The Belfry Hotel & Resort picked up two awards at the 2018 World Golf Awards held at La Manga in Spain.

The North Warwickshire venue won the ‘World’s Best Golf Hotel’ and the ‘England’s Best Golf Course’ at the 2018 awards, which are now in their fifth year and celebrate and reward excellence for golf tourism, courses and destinations.

Top-quality facilities and leisure attractions, coupled with an exceptional high standard of service, cemented The Belfry’s status amongst the world’s elite.

James Stewart, The Belfry’s Resort Director, commented: “It is an honour to be named as the World’s Best Golf Hotel. As the spiritual home of the Ryder Cup, we are challenged every day to ensure the quality and service we provide to guests remains world class.”

Meanwhile the Brabazon Course – the only course to have hosted the Ryder Cup four times – was once again praised for its unrivalled conditioning and layout, winning ‘England’s Best Golf Course 2018’.

Stewart added: “Chris Reeve, our Director of Golf, has excelled at ensuring standards across all of our golfing facilities, including the PGA National Golf Academy are first class. Angus Macleod and his greenkeeping team have done a remarkable job on all three courses, in particular the conditioning of the Brabazon is outstanding, ensuring a true Ryder Cup experience every day of the week, every week of the year – and I am so proud they have been voted England’s Best Golf Course,” added Stewart.

Chris Eigelaar, general manager at The Belfry, commented: “We are extremely proud to offer world-class facilities and an outstanding level of service to all our guests. We are dedicated to providing guests with a memorable golf experience at the resort and it is exceptionally rewarding to be recognised as leading the way in hospitality worldwide.”

Chris Frost, Managing Director of the World Golf Awards, commented: “The Belfry continues to set the benchmark as a golfing destination and all three awards highlight the superb work that has been done by everyone connected with the resort.”

The Belfry was also voted ‘England’s Leading Conference Hotel’ and ‘England’s Leading Resort’ at the recent World Travel Awards.
