The curtain has come down on a memorable edition of the British Challenge Presented by Modest! Golf Management and here are some of the things you might have missed from The Belfry Hotel & Resort.
Leon the Legend
Hugo Leon secured his first European Challenge Tour title at The Belfry and he was a popular winner. A final round of 69 was enough to seal a one-stroke victory from Oliver Bekker and it came the day after the Chilean gave up over an hour of his time to coach some of the Clutch Pro Tour's junior players.

On Saturday night, @hlt84 spent over an hour helping and giving tips to @clutchprotour junior players on the putting green.— Challenge Tour (@Challenge_Tour) September 5, 2021

Richard Mansell: My year so far
England's Richard Mansell finished in the top five on the Road to Mallorca Rankings in 2020 and has therefore plied his trade on the European Tour for much of this year. However, he teed it up at The Belfry last week having not earned a start at the Italian Open, so we caught up with him to find out how he has adjusted to life on the top tier.
An iconic venue
The Belfry Hotel & Resort is the only venue to have hosted the Ryder Cup on four separate occasions and, despite the British Challenge being played on the PGA National course, there was still a sense of history being felt by the Challenge Tour players.
