The Belfry to hand over green fees cash to charities

Published:

The legendary Belfry Hotel & Resort has revealed that it will donate its entire green fee income on its first day of re-opening to several key UK charities.

The world-famous, world-class West Midlands venue, which has hosted a record four Ryder Cups, was set to host over 30 charity golf days in 2020.  However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, donations and many fund-raising activities have either been postponed or cancelled...a bitter blow to charities which would have benefited.

But the welcome substantial donations from the resort’s big re-opening day green fees will support a variety of causes - from cancer, heart, kidney and Parkinson’s treatment, children’s hospitals and hospices, to charity trusts supporting ex-sportsmen. It also includes the two nominated Belfry charities for 2020, Matt Hampson Foundation and LoveBrum.

Katie Niland, Sales Director, said: “We want to share some positivity and support during what is an exceptionally challenging time for many charities who rely on donations to survive and show our support for the amazing work they do.

"We have the pleasure to host many charity golf days a year, so we want to take this opportunity to give something back so they can continue to help those who need it most.

“We therefore really want the first day we open the courses to count.  The Brabazon, PGA National and The Derby courses will all be available to play and there will be some fun opportunities out on the courses to donate further, so whether you are a beginner, amateur or pro golfer, it’s sure to be a great day for not only those on the courses but some truly fantastic causes too.”
