The Belfry Hotel & Resort has revealed that it will donate its entire green fee income on its first day of reopening to a number of UK charities.
The hotel, which was on track to host over 30 charity gold days in 2020, comprises three iconic golf courses that have played host to The Ryder Cup and the European Tour.
Due to Covid-19, many of these fund-raising events have now been cancelled or postponed, so the hotel has pledged to donate green fees from the resort on the first day all three courses reopen.
The donations from the resort’s 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. At The Belfry, 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 will all be available to play and there will be some fun opportunities out on the courses to donate further.”
The Belfry Hotel & Resort comprises three golf courses, including The Brabazon and The PGA National, which have previously hosted The Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world – and two European Tour events.
