Designed by Paul Rolin and inaugurated in 1980, the course at Cleydael Golf & Country Club exhibits something of a split personality, with a front nine laid out over open terrain and a back nine routed through dense woodland.
Royal Waterloo’s Le Lion course is a 1980 Paul Rolin production that was extensively refashioned by Martin Hawtree in 2015. Former host to the Perrier Pro-Am, Le Lion is a well-balanced parkland layout where the Battle of Waterloo’s “Lion’s Mound” memorial flanks several holes.
Founded in 1976 and designed by Harold Baker, Ternesse Golf & Country Club boasts 27 holes routed around a beautiful old 175-acre castle estate. Extensively renovated in 2009 to increase the element of challenge, the main course has a new lease of life.
This tree-lined Kasteel course plays to a par of 71 and it’s the shorter of the two tracks at Oudenaarde Golf & Country Club, measuring a modest 5,889 metres from the back markers.
Situated only a 40-minute drive from the centre of Brussels, the secluded L'Empereur course at the 27-hole Golf de l'Empereur – one of a dozen operated by the Open Golf Club management company in Belgium – feels like it’s located miles from anywhere.
