A stone’s throw from Ghent in the unique and historic setting of Zwijnaarde Castle, Executive Club Private Golf Zwijnaarde offers a 9-par-3-hole Executive Course.
The Executive Club has a 9 compact holes. The golf course promises maximum enjoyment in minimum time. Ideal for those who have little time or are hurrying between two business meetings.
This parkland course is characterised by a number of water hazards and beautiful vegetation. The narrower holes and strategically placed bunkers require some precision, making this course a challenge for both advanced and less experienced players.
The castle’s old coachhouse has been beautifully restored and serves as an atmospheric clubhouse where you can relax after your round. At noon you can enjoy a delicious lunch in the à la carte restaurant.
The castle itself has a long history, with origins in the 14th century, when Zwijnaarde still belonged to St. Peter’s Abbey in Ghent. The lords of Zwijnaarde found the area to be exceptional and chose it to build a country retreat. Over the years, both the clergy and various Counts of Flanders, as well as Isabella of Austria, took up residence here.
However, the building was brought down by violence in the Iconoclastic Fury in 1578 and a few centuries later during World War I. Again and again it has been rebuilt, and generations have found in the estate a refuge from busy city life.
Today you can enjoy this showpiece of the East Flemish landscape: the beautiful winter garden and stylish historical salons are particularly suitable for receptions, weddings, seminars and the like. With the high-level catering service and all practical amenities including a large car park and a private heliport, Zwijnaarde Castle is the ideal location for your party or event!
Golf Zwijnaarde is just 10 minutes from central Ghent in Flanders.
