The Belfry is a golf resort in Wishaw, Warwickshire, very near Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham, England, and was acquired by KSL Capital Partners LLC in August 2012 Denver/USA Colorado.

The resort has three golf courses. The Brabazon Course is the main tournament course, and the others are the PGA National and The Derby. The headquarters of The Professional Golfers' Association are also located there, as are a hotel, tennis courts and a leisure spa.

The Belfry has hosted the Ryder Cup on four occasions, and has also staged numerous European Tour events.

The Belfry had also recently undergone a major renovation of all bedrooms, meeting rooms, public spaces and other amenities. As well as a general uplift on the whole grounds appearance, including a new lobby entrance. The hotel remained open during the renovations and have been successfully completed. Further work is being undertaken to improve other areas of the resort, including the Leisure spa as well as re-opening Sam's bar.
