Golf de Falnuée: Nestling in a natural environment near Mazy, this well-maintained and undulating course straddles the Orneau river valley. Laid out in open countryside and more wooded areas, this pleasant layout is accentuated by a wonderfully varied collection of testing par-3 holes. Better than the uphill 6th, or steep downhill 15th, is the long and testing 13th ... a woodland gem.
The first five holes, all par-4s occupy one side of the river valley, and clearly establish the inherent challenges of Falnuee. None of these opening holes is particularly long, but each one underlines the need to hit straight from the tee, then follow-up with accurate approach work to typically fast and dangerously sloping greens. Water and/or OB are frequent companions on your way round, further reinforcing the need for careful course management ( ... a strokesaver may help on your first outing).
Falnuee provides a good challenge for golfers of all levels as well as a thoroughly pleasant walk through some fine rural countryside. Once a year it tests the skills of Belgium's best club golfers, with the staging of the Club Champion of Champions tournament (known as the Belgian Masters).

Running through the golf course at Falnuée is the Orneau river, a tributary of the Sambre, and therefore a sub-tributary of the River Meuse (or Maas in Flemish). Falnuée's clubhouse occupies a wonderful former chateau-farm that dates back to at least the 14th century. The bar is located in the former stables and incorporates some wonderful vaulted ceiling architecture.
