Belgium Best Golf Courses

Best golf courses in Belgium

Golf architect Tom Simpson had a big hand in establishing golf in Belgium in the early part of the 20th century, designing 4 out of the first 5 courses to be built. 
These early courses, and a few others established in the 1930's, allowed the aristocracy and nouveau riche to indulge their appetite for the internationally expanding pastime of golf; many of these courses were given their Royal titles. With one or two notable exceptions (e.g. Royal Waterloo) the building of newer courses did not really get under way until the 1980's. 

Along Belgian's short coastline you'll find three excellent golf courses: Royal Ostend, the only true links course in Belgium; Royal Zoute and Koksijde, Golf ter Hille. All golf courses presented are open to the public. Some may be difficult to play on week-ends owing to the number of members, but travelling green-feers should often be able to play during the week.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
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...
