Stunning new chandelier, made entirely from old putters and irons, unveiled at famous venue
The faces of visitors to The Belfry are sure to light up when they clap eyes on the Ryder Cup venue’s stunning new chandelier, which has been made using an array of Ping golf clubs.
A total of 140 new putters and irons make up the incredible new feature, which hangs in the lobby of the West Midlands hotel’s reception.
Chantelle Lighting was commissioned to make the unique piece by The Belfry’s owners, KSL Capital LLC, and its creator, Anthony Holly, is justifiably proud of the finished article.
“The Belfry is a special venue for amateur and professional golfers alike,” said Holly.
“We were delighted to be asked to be involved in the renovations and are really pleased that the hard work of our design and manufacturing teams has produced this unique chandelier.
“We are sure that it will become an iconic part of The Belfry Hotel for many years to come.”
Dave Fanning, Ping’s European marketing manager, added: “We have a long history of working with The Belfry and were really pleased to be asked to supply some of our top of the range clubs to Chantelle Lighting for this innovative chandelier.
“It will provide a fantastic welcome to golfers staying at The Belfry and hopefully inspire them to play some excellent rounds of golf.”
Linda Matlin, Head of Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment at De Vere Hotels and De Vere Village Urban Resorts, which runs The Belfry, said: “We have worked alongside Chantelle Lighting on various projects, and we felt they were exactly the right people to create our golf club chandelier.
“The artwork was very impressive and we are delighted with the end result. We are confident it will prove a hit with the many golf fans visiting The Belfry every day.”
