Where2Golf says: 

Golf & Country Club Oudenaarde: Laid out in the grounds of Petegem Castle (a very handsome stately pile), there are now two 18-hole courses at Oudenaarde, the Kasteel (Castle) and the Anker (Anchor). The shorter Kasteel course utilises holes from the former Adbij (A), Anker (B) and Burcht (C) nines, and also includes two new holes. As before, the layout will test every facet of your game - not least your ability to hit the ball straight and true. Mature trees and garden-like bushes line most of the fairways, often quite tightly. OB, water ditches and small lakes also play their part in keeping you straight and honest on a layout that is at times flat, at others gently undulating. Wayward power-hitting is not the key to unlocking a good score on this pleasant parkland layout. If you think there is sanctuary to be found once you reach the putting surfaces, then think again. The generally fast and excellently maintained greens, are sufficiently fast and sloping to test the nerve of even the best of putters. The course contains its fair share of strong holes and others of a "trickier" nature, with an even spread of tight drives, "water-bounded" par-3's and dog-legging longer holes. Don't be surprised to hear chimes from the chateau's bell-tower ringing out at regular intervals (perhaps a pace of play reminder !).

Did you know?

The stately home of Petegem Castle, dating from 1847, incorporates the clubhouse - one of the more impressive 19th holes in Belgium, and probably the only one where the bell tower still rings out its melodious chimes.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
