Where to play on your Belgium golf holiday
Why are golf breaks in Belgium so popular?
A top-notch location for your next golf break, Belgium offers the perfect balance of amazing golf and great nightlife/culture. Due to its underrated status, the fairways here are often quiet, which only helps with the overall condition and quality of the course on offer. Also, as Belgium borders France there is easy access to some of the top Northern France courses in Dunkirk and Lille.
The hotel options provide great choices for a stay in the city or just outside, all within walking distance of the main attractions. A stay at Martin's Grand Hotel is the perfect spot with a good blend of traditional and contemporary. There are multiple choices, all at a great price, which allow you to experience many cultural attractions, shops, bars and wonderful restaurants.
We recommend visiting in the summertime to ensure you receive the most favourable conditions possible, and due to its extensive business connections, flights to the country are frequent from anywhere in the UK all year round.
