Plans are being drawn up to give a major golf course and hotel a refit in a bid to entice one of the biggest golfing events back to its grounds.

Managers at the Belfry in Warwickshire are hoping to knock down the existing hotel and replace it with a new 500-bedroom five-star development.
It is hoped the Ryder Cup golf tournament will be held there again.
It has hosted the Ryder Cup four times and the British Masters was staged there in May last year.
General manager Nigel Gray said he wanted the Ryder Cup to return to the north Warwickshire venue but feared the hotel would not be up to coping with the size and status of the event at the current time.
"I think we need this for the development of the Belfry," he said.
