Where2Golf says: 

Kempense Golf Club: Laid out on relatively flat terrain, an eclectic mix of strong and some more eccentric golf holes make-up this always challenging parkland layout. You will need to deploy good course management and careful shot-making to pick your way through the ever-present watery threats en route to the relative safety of the large and sloping greens.

Most of the holes here at Kempense require precision rather than power from the tee. Water is a constant danger, ominously present on over half the holes, and usually taking the form of small ponds in front of greens or fairway-hugging ditches ( ... at the stroke index 1 hole, the par-4 3rd, you have both to contend with). If water is not lurking somewhere, then Out-of-Bounds and/or thick bushes might be preying on your mind as you tee-it up.

Mixed in with many good holes are others that could leave you somewhat puzzled, especially on a first outing. The short and sharply dog-legging 10th and 15th, both par-4s, are never easy, and the match-winning (or card-wrecking) 18th can catch-out even the most experienced Kempense club member ... let alone first-time visitor. With so much water around, the course can get a bit "heavy" during the wetter parts of winter.

Did you know?

Kempense takes its name from the region of Kempen (Campine in English), which straddles parts of north-eastern Belgium and south-eastern Netherlands. The Campine once consisted mainly of moorland, tracts of sandy heath and wetlands. The city of Turnhout is regarded as the region's capital. Today the Campine is a popular tourist destination for those in search of a quiet and relaxing weekend. Bed & Breakfast accommodation in former farms, together with restaurants and cafés maintain a thriving business, while an extensive cycle touring network has also been established in recent years.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
