Golf holidays in Mons: how to get there, what to see and do.

Golf holidays in Mons

Not far over the French border, Mons is one of Belgium’s more characterful, university towns that lends itself perfectly to tourism - even without the added joy of golf!

Mons is the perfect size for strolling; the network of cobbled streets linking the squares and striking bell towers will become familiar even on just a one or two-night golf break.

The main square 'La Grand Place' is dominated by the town hall, unmistakeably Flemish in style, which looks out over a square rimmed with brasseries and cafés, every one with a beer menu as long as a belly putter.

The streets that lead off the main square are lined with shops and restaurants ranging from kebab and burger bars (it is a university town after all), through pizza parlours, modernist Mediterranean to gastronomic gems: whatever your taste you’ll find a menu in Mons.

Still quite gritty in a few corners, Mons is however enjoying a makeover at the moment as it has been elected European Capital of Culture for 2015 – so churches are being cleaned, cobbles re-laid, shopfronts tarted-up and nearly every nook and cranny enjoying a serious brush-up.

Getting to Mons

By far the easiest route is the Eurotunnel or Dover-Calais/Dunkerque ferries.  Mons and its golf courses are under two hours from Calais, ao it's perfect for a quick Belgian golf break and a refreshing change of scenery if you live in the southeast of England.

Alternatively, if you are coming from further north, the Hull-Zeebrugge ferry cruises that run overnight will drop you in Zeebrugge in plenty of time for a round at the wonderful Royal Zoute or Royal Oostende on arrival.  Mons itself is then just an hour from the coast.
