Royal Limburg Golf Club sports a splendid 18-hole course, reminiscent of the most exquisite British Championship Courses, amid the typical natural beauty of the Kempen.
At Royal Limburg Golf Club, the 6,178-metre course (PAR 72), designed by the renowned golf architect Fred Hawtree. He designed the course in 1966, and it’s a timeless classic, routed in two loops of nine which each return to the clubhouse. Most fairways are bounded by pine and birch trees with massive clusters of heather around the property to add great beauty when in bloom.
The course borders the Tenhaagdoornheide nature reserve and offers extremely varied holes meandering between heath- and woodland. Intelligent bunkering, beautifully shaped fairways, some delicate putting lines, frequent doglegs and tip-top maintenance make Houthalen one of the coolest golf courses in Flanders.
Before or after a round you can be pampered in the cozy clubhouse with its bar and restaurant. From the terrace you have a great view of holes one and eighteen.
This course is particularly a must from mid-August until mid-September, when the heather turns purple, as well as during the other months of the year. Not for nothing was Royal Limburg Golf Club listed in the 2011 Top 100 best courses in Europe in the prestigious Golf World Magazin.
For Next Golf team, the Royal Limburg Golf course in the 2nd best course in Belgium.
