I regularly play Ostend at different times of the year. This course is great from a golf perspective: it requires finesse, length and precision to score well. And when mother nature, especially the North Sea breeze comes into play, "wahoo!" to keep the ball in play. The recent upgrade increased the links character. The scenery is a bit contrasted with some ugly inland appartments spoiling the view. The fact a motorway and railway split the course does not really disturb me since playing Ostend is simply a pleasant experience I recommend to any player visiting the Belgian seaside.
