Naxhelet Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2014

Naxhelet Golf Club: Located on a plateau overlooking the "Meuse" and "Mehaigne" valleys, Naxhelet features an absorbing Martin Hawtree designed layout, as well as excellent practice facilities, a large award-winning clubhouse and onsite accommodation.

Laid out in two contrasting nine-hole loops on either side of the impressive clubhouse, the Naxhelet championship course contains a variety of good, bad and downright ugly golf holes. The front-nine offers the most undulation, some lovely views, and a relatively open linksy feel to the golf. There's plenty of threatening bunkering and a rolling character to the good-width fairways.

The flatter back-nine provides a less scenically interesting assortment of holes, and arguably a tougher test than the "outward" half. Water puts in two or three telling appearances, not least alongside the long par-4 11th (the stroke index 1 hole for good reason). The same ponds come back into play at the par-5 12th. After skirting beside a food processing plant at the short par-5 14th, and then into a separate field for back-to-back short par-4s, the layout serves up an excellent par-4 to close out the round a short distance from the clubhouse.
