Where2Golf says: 

Golf du Mont Garni: Here in the quiet and natural setting of Mont Garni, there's an excellent mix of open-country and woodland golf to be enjoyed. The course is laid out over relatively flat terrain around a wonderful manor house (formerly the home of NATO Commanders-in-Chief, typically American 4 or 5-star generals).

The opening and closing stretches of the Mont Garni layout weave their way through peaceful mature woodland, where relatively tight tree-lined fairways guide you towards well-maintained, sloping greens. At the par-5 7th you emerge into a more open area, where rural farmland provides the back-drop and the need for precision straight-hitting eases ... to a degree. The par-5 12th returns you back into the woods for the final third of the course. Especially in the layout's more wooded areas, fairway-hugging (and sometimes fairway-crossing) water ditches present an additional need for careful course management.

The final three holes, perfect for deciding match play outcomes, comprise two tight par-5s (one short, one long) and a short par-4, which is dangerously defended by a small pond in front of the green. Overall a testing golf course, laid out in a wonderfully mixed rural and woodland environment - a favourite with many Belgian golfers.

Did you know?

Golf du Mont Garni takes its name from the nearby hamlet of Mont Garni, located 2.5 km north of the village of Baudour, which itself sits just north of the Nimy Blaton-Peronnes canal. Part of Belgium's impressive network of man-made waterways, the canal provides an important link between the Canal du Centre, and the city of Mons, with the River Schelde (aka Scheldt) and the city of Tournai.
