No Bats in this Belfry!! A Grand Makeover

Mr R was ever so slightly disappointed - you see he doesn't get home before 7:00 pm (mostly nearer to 8:00pm) so he couldn't come with me to the event I had been invited to.


The Belfry, iconic home to great golfing has been purchased and has just undergone a £26million transformation.  The Belfry is in the West Midlands near Birmingham but for one night was brought to London's South Bank on a VIP Routemaster bus and set up it's own mini resort by the banks of the river.

But this was just to highlight the new premier resort and mecca to golfers and host to the Ryder Cup four times.  There are luxurious guest rooms and new bars and grill restaurants which Chef Director Glen Watson was more than happy to tell me all about! There are also spa facilities and exerercise and relaxation facililties for everyone.


There were several members of The Belfry attending to answer any questions and to tell us how proud and excited they are about the new transformation including chef Director Glen Watson to tell us all about his new facilities and menus including 28 day dry aged steaks from local sources.

Several glasses of champagne and a head and neck massage and I was fully sold on the experience!  If Mr R had come he could have hit a 'hole in one' on the Brabazon course with their simulator.


All this was to wet the appetite and create a desire to visit the property and see the real thing!  Now where did Mr R put his golf clubs??


The Belfry is one of the De Vere Group's properties
 


 
Thanks to The Belfry for the invitation - I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions are, as always, my own.

  5. It sounds interesting. I'd like a review trip to see if the actual experience matches their marketing event.

    1. Karen I think Mr R should get his priorities straight - work vs drinking champagne and canapes - no contest!
