Ryder Cup Legends mini golf course opens at the Belfry Hotel & Resort

Keeping in line with its unrivalled Ryder Cup history, the Belfry Hotel & Resort has opened a unique Ryder-Cup themed mini golf course; featuring some of the most iconic holes from courses across Europe and the USA.

The ‘Ryder Layout’ consists of twelve holes – nine of which are particularly famous from historical Ryder Cup clashes. Three bonus holes round off the fun pint-sized course.

Among the courses holes is a replica of the legendary risk-and-reward 10th hole from The Barbazon at The Belfry, which challenges players to go for glory.

The course has been designed by renowned mini golf architects City Golf, and the high specification layout maintains the iconic design features from some of the world’s most recognisable holes, while incorporating a number of tricky challenges and water hazards along the way to keep both the young and old thoroughly entertained.

Some of the legendary European holes to be given the miniature treatment include the 17th at Valderrama, the 18th at Wentworth and the 9th at Royal Lytham & St Annes. Classic American Ryder Cup holes featured include the 17th at Kiawah Island, Valhalla’s 13th and the 5th from Pinehurst.

David Edwards, Resort Director at The Belfry, said of the opening: “The Ryder Legends Mini Golf Course is a great addition for the resort. As the world’s only four-time host, we wanted to honour our Ryder Cup heritage, but do so in a way that would be enjoyable and inclusive for everyone.

“Whether you are a golfing purist, wanting to experience replicas of some of the world’s most iconic Ryder Cup holes, or a beginner just looking for a bit of fun, the new course offers something for everyone. It provides another activity that we can offer to guests when they visit the resort, and as always, we wanted to ensure that it was completed to the highest of standards.”

A round on the Ryder Legends Mini Golf Course will cost you £7 per adult an £5 per child. The course is open from 10am-6pm daily, and no booking is required. It can also be hired exclusively for £250.
