The Belfry is delighted to play host to the UK Championship, the conclusion of The European Tour’s new ‘UK Swing’, from 27th until 30th August 2020.
The European Tour UK Championship will take place on the award-winning Brabazon course, which is world-class and has a rich golfing history having previously hosted a number of significant golf events including The Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world – and 16 European Tour events, producing some of the most dramatic moments in the history of golf.
While The Belfry is no stranger to hosting high-profile golfing events, the 2020 UK Championship will be the first event of this nature held at the resort since the British Masters in 2008, firmly placing The Belfry back on the tour agenda. The Championship will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and will see the best players in the game back on The Belfry’s most iconic course.
James Macbeth Stewart, Resort Director at The Belfry, said: “We are very proud to be hosting the UK Swing’s UK Championship and to be playing a part in getting golf back up and running. It is also a chance for us to help get the economy moving again as lockdown restrictions lift.
“After a tough few months, we are delighted to see a positive outlook for the future of golf, and we look forward to welcoming players back on the course.”
Following the suspension of the season due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, the European Tour announced its plans for the resumption of the 2020 season with the launch of a new six‐week UK Swing, beginning in July 2020.
The European Tour will take place behind closed doors and for the UK Championship, will have exclusive use of The Belfry Hotel & Resort with the safety and wellbeing of all players, guests and staff being top priority.
