  About the course 

Besides Golf de Pau (in France) the Royal Antwerp Golf Club is one of the oldest established golf courses on the Continent. It dates back to 1888, when it was constructed by Willie Park in an extensive area of woodland just north of Antwerp. It was modernized by Tom Simpson in 1920 and even today it retains its special character. Eighteen well-modelled fairways extend through heather, shrubs and bushes and various trees such as silver birches and pines. The scenery resembles the German courses in the Luneburg Heath. Most of the fairways are rather narrow and lined by old trees which will severely penalize badly placed shots. The old course offers the advanced player a round which demands absolute precision. Other amenities include: 1 tennis court. Other attractions: Notre Dame Cathedral, the biggest Gothic church in the country, excellent paintings by Rubens ("Assumption of the Blessed Virgin"). St. James Church with Rubens chapel. Royal Museum of Arts. National Maritime Museum. Courses nearby: Keerbergen.
