The Belfry, four-time host of the Ryder Cup, was unveiled as England’s ‘Leading Golf Resort’ at the annual World Travel Awards Ceremony, widely known as the ‘Oscars of the travel industry’, held recently in Antalya,Turkey.
The West Midlands resort, situated in the heart of the country ten miles from Birmingham International Airport and just off the M42 motorway, was chosen by more than 217,000 travel agents and members of the public across the world as the top venue for a golfing break in England, seeing off a host of other nominations.
“It’s a privilege to be recognised as the leading golf destination in England by such an internationally-renowned group as the World Travel Awards,” said Gary Silcock, Director of Golf at The Belfry. “We’ve worked extremely hard over the past few years on not just our three top class courses and vibrant hotel, but also on enhancing the whole Belfry experience, ensuring visitors are treated to a world-class service from the moment they make the initial booking through to when they leave the resort.
“Although the last Ryder Cup was held here nine years ago, golfers still regard The Brabazon as the spiritual home of The Ryder Cup and we welcome visitors from all over the globe who come to play the course as part of our Stay & Play deals that run throughout the year,” he added.
As well as a cash injection of over £3m during the last four years to its flagship Brabazon course, the resort, which held the same title in 2004, has also recently re-launched its leisure facilities, now known as Health & Wellness at The Belfry with state-of-the-art gym equipment from Italy and a refurbished AquaSpa facility.
