The Belfry Hotel & Resort has once again outlined its outstanding credentials among the world’s leading golf resorts by receiving top awards for ‘England’s Best Golf Course’ and ‘England’s Best Golf Hotel’ at the annual World Golf Awards in Portugal.

The renowned Midlands resort saw off some of the finest competition to receive the accolades for the exceptional facilities and first class levels of service across the resort, alongside the world’s only four-time Ryder Cup host course, The Brabazon, proving that it remains one of the most desired and enjoyable golf courses in the UK.

The Awards celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism across the globe, and sit alongside the prestigious World Travel Awards, where The Belfry Hotel & Resort was this year named as England’s Leading Resort.

These accolades pay testament to the excellent accommodation, leisure and dining experiences on offer at The Belfry, and how they combine with the world-class golfing heritage to provide the perfect getaway for any golfing break.

With three supremely conditioned golf courses, from the world renowned Brabazon, to the PGA National and Derby courses, there is definitely something to suit every player.

David Edwards, resort director at The Belfry commented upon his delight: “It has been a great year for everyone here at The Belfry.

“The Team has worked hard to ensure that the full resort matches the undoubted standards of the world famous golf courses over the past few years, and it is great to receive this recognition from our guests.

“To have been named as England’s Leading Resort at the World Travel Awards, and now to have been voted for as the Best Golf Hotel and Course in England at the World Golf Awards, highlights our commitment to providing exceptional service and hospitality for each and every guest across the resort, whether that be out on the golf course, in the hotel, in our restaurants or in the spa.”

The World Golf Awards strive to raise golf customer experiences at golf resorts and courses across the globe, and are voted for by industry leaders, including senior executives, tour operators and agents, as well as golfers worldwide to provide the gold standard in global golf tourism.

Chris Frost, managing director, World Golf Awards, commented: “The World Golf Awards provide the ultimate benchmark of success for any golf destination across the world, and The Belfry has done an exceptional job in meeting and exceeding the required standards to set themselves apart from the competition within England.”
