Damme Golf & Country Club: Laid out on flat terrain in a very quiet and typically West Flanders setting, this parkland mix of wooded and more open holes will thoroughly test your golfing skills. Water is the ever-present danger here, with many holes demanding great accuracy from the tee to avoid the all too common small ponds, water ditches and often thick vegetation that lines the fairways.
This is a course for technicians and good course management, rather than power-hitters and occasional waywardness. Several doglegging holes will require an appreciation of the appropriate "lay-up" yardages from the tee. A good collection of par-3's are generally played over or alongside water. Woodland scenery interspersed with picturesque rural countryside, ensures a pleasant environment for your round.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

The town of Damme shared in the prosperity of nearby Bruges, especially during the Golden Age of this Low Countries port, between the 12th and 15th centuries. The beautifully preserved city of Bruges (or Brugge in Flemish) is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders, and is also one of Belgium's best known tourist destinations.
