Golf holidays in Waterloo

The site of the famous 1815 battle between Napoleon and the British allies remains a fairly small town although Waterloo is gradually expanding and spreading out towards the battlefields and the Mont de Lion. Not surprisingly the battlefield remains the main draw for tourists (maybe not the French) and historians will enjoy the small museum in the middle of town dedicated to the famous conflict.

Golf holidays in Waterloo

In all honesty, Waterloo has never been a particularly lively place; however there are now a few restaurants, cafés and bars strung out along its High Street and a little cluster of eateries has also cropped up around the Grand Hotel and Lodge. So there are options for dining out occasionally during your golf break in Waterloo - just don't expect a wild party town!

Waterloo golf courses

Waterloo, or more correctly, the province of Brabant-Walloon, has become the epicentre of golf in Belgium. The region has a dozen good quality golf courses within an hour's drive of the town ranging from exclusive Clubs like Royal Waterloo to more commercial Golf Clubs like Pierrepont: there is something to appeal to every class of golfer on holiday in Belgium.

As you might imagine the golf courses being inland are all parkland or woodland layouts, but they have all been expertly crafted by a range of architects so there is a good variety to be found.

Getting to Waterloo by car

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

Alternatively coming from further north, the Hull-Zeebrugge ferry cruises overnight and will drop you in Zeebrugge in plenty of time for a round at the wonderful Royal Zoute or Royal Oostende on arrival before driving on down to Waterloo for the rest of your golf holiday.

Guest Comments

"Hello Cecile,
Our trip this year again proved to be very successful. The Martins Hotel, particularly the set menu food, was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Certainly we would stay there again. The three courses played were all in good condition. The only slight downside was at La Tournette who booked us onto the American course to accommodate a group of lady players. However after a few strong words, we were allowed on to the English course and the ladies were shifted to the American course.
Thank you for your help in managing the tour and I hope we will be contacting you again next year for another tour."
Mr. R. Lilley - Rye
