Where2Golf says: 

Golf Club d'Hulencourt: With considerable ongoing investment by the owners, Hulencourt's championship Vallon course has realised its potential as the best of the "newer" parkland courses in Belgium (although The National, an "inland links", now arguably lays down Belgium's best inland challenge). Situated in an area of undulating rural farmland, which affords limited protection from the wind, the "must play" Vallon, is accompanied by the club's 9-hole Pitch-and-Putt Verger course.

Hulencourt offers 18 strong golf holes laid out on relatively open terrain, with much attention paid to creating a variety of golfing challenges. Water, OB and substantive shallow bunkering provide the principal hazards to avoid, while good-width fairways and well-maintained greens are the surfaces you'll want to hit. Several holes skilfully embrace a line of small lakes that run through the lower part of the course, with the two front-nine par-3s making good use of these ponds.

Hulencourt is maturing well, under the watchful eye of owner Patrick Solvay (of the Solvay chemical company family). Careful tree management has created good definition to the holes, as well as scenically enhancing the gently undulating landscape. Definitely one of Belgium's golfing gems, even if the wind is doing its bit to blow you off course and thoroughly test your game.

NOTE: as of mid-April 2018, Hulencourt will undergo an extensive upgrading programme on the championship Vallon course. Hole closure and disruption is likely.
