The Belfry has hosted golf’s Ryder Cup on four occasions, the most recent of which was in 2002.
It also recently hosted the Betfred British Masters tournament.


Whilst the resort is known as the spiritual home of the Ryder Cup, it is no stranger to high-profile European Tour events, with 11 in total being held at The Belfry between 1989 and 2008. The English Open has seen winners like Mark James and David Gilford, whilst the Benson & Hedges International Open witnessed champions from across the world, including Spaniard Jose Maria Olazabal, Swede Henrik Stenson, Argentinian Angel Cabrera and Englishman Paul Casey.

The resort has three golf courses. The Brabazon Course is the main tournament course, and the others are the PGA National and The Derby, which are recognised as world-class, having previously hosted The Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world – and 19 European Tour events, producing some of the most dramatic moments in the history of golf. The headquarters of The Professional Golfers’ Association are also located there, along with a 4-star hotel, tennis courts and a leisure spa.
