Hit the links with a day out on a golf course, widely regarded as the best in Belgium. The Royal Golf Club des Fagnes is one of five Walloon courses bearing the "royal" tag. The course is located in the Ardennes, a hilly area of Belgium, near the world-famous Formula One race track at Spa-Francorchamps. A well-designed course and a quiet, natural environment make for a wonderful round of golf.
Designed in the 1920s by the famous English golf architect Tom Simpson, this course is respected internationally. The opening of this new course at Spa was launched with a professional tournament that attracted some of golf's biggest names of the era.
Playing the course
The course features gentle changes in relief, wide fairways winding through the Ardennes wooded countryside, and well-bunkered greens. You'll appreciate the tranquility and serenity of a course considered to be among Europe's best, and cherished by golfers around the world. The 18-hole course has the character of a classic heathland course from Surrey and Berkshire in England. In fact, it's labelled the "Belgian Sunningdale" after the famous course in Windsor. Over this rolling countryside setting, there are many challenging dogleg par-4s, an arresting array of par-3s and a front–nine that opens and closes with two very good par-5s. Par for the course is 72 strokes. Admire the abundance of oak, pine and silver birch, as well as occasional bursts of heather that line the fairways. With its well-kept greens and prolific bunkers, the famous and historic course is extremely popular - including with royalty!
