Damme Golf & Country Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1987

Damme Golf & Country Club: Benefitting from a major course upgrade in the mid-2010s, the Championship course at Damme still follows its original routing, with generally quite tight holes lined by water or unforgiving trees and bushes. Not only did the upgrade introduce nine new holes (the President's-nine), but also straightened out one or two of the quirkiest original holes ... not least the severly doglegging closing par-4 18th (now an easier-going snaking par-5).

Laid out on flat terrain in a quiet West Flanders setting, this parkland mix of wooded and more open holes will thoroughly test your golfing skills. Water is the constant companion here, especially on the testing back-nine. Many holes demand great accuracy from the tee to avoid the all too common small ponds, water ditches and thick vegetation that line the fairways.

This is a course where good course management is rewarded, rather than wayward power-hitting. Several doglegging holes will require an appreciation of the appropriate "lay-up" yardages from the tee, especially so through the middle section of the course.

A good collection of par-3s are generally played over or alongside water. Woodland scenery interspersed with picturesque rural countryside, ensures a pleasant environment for your round.
