The Ryder Cup venue say every penny will be donated to various charities when their three courses open for the first time following the coronavirus pandemic
The Belfry will donate their entire green fee income from the first day of reopening after the coronavirus crisis to a number of UK charities.
The Warwickshire-based hotel and resort, which hosted the Ryder Cup four times between 1985 and 2020 and is home to the Brabazon, Derby and PGA National courses, was due to host more than 30 charity golf days this year.
But the Covid-19 pandemic has meant donations and many fundraising activities have been cancelled or postponed and so the club have decided to step in to help.
The club’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 this year: 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, so whether you are a beginner, amateur or pro golfer, it’s sure to be a great day for some truly fantastic causes.”
