How to get there:

10 km S of Liege

From the A3/E40 motorway (north-east of Liege), take the A15/E42 motorway direction Seraing/Liege Airport. From the A15/E42 take the Seraing exit and follow the A604 direction Seraing. After 4.5 km, take the Liege exit (N617) and at traffic lights turn left direction Liege, following the Quay Meuse (on the north side of the River Meuse). After 2.8 km (with Standard Liege stadium on your left) turn right over bridge onto the N63, direction Marche. After 4.6 km Sart Tilman Golf is on your left - but you'll need to exit from the main road (direction Tilff), u-turn at the roundabout, and return a few hundred metres on the N63 direction Liege back to the golf entrance.

Royal Golf Club du Sart Tilman

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1938

Royal Golf Club du Sart Tilman: this excellent wooded parkland layout, designed by the legendary Tom Simpson, is understandably one of Belgium's most revered courses, and one of its "Royals".

Majestically tree-lined fairways demand accuracy from your tee shots, while your approach shots will also need to be well-placed if you want to stand any chance of getting down in two putts. The greens here are large and fast, often with wickedly sloping contours that will thoroughly test your nerve, not least on those short one metre putts, never mind the longer ones.

This older style championship layout is of a consistently excellent standard, sometimes undulating, other times flatter. Mighty oaks, pines and birch are ever-present alongside the mix of straight and doglegging fairways. This variety of straight-away, gently and more severely doglegging holes, culminates in a testing closing stretch with three par-5s in the final six holes.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
