WELCOME TO DAMME
Construction works on the 17th & 18th Holes has begun
Work has started on the 17th & 18th holes which will be completed mid October and some time early summer 2015 (if we have good weather this winter and next spring).
The 17th will become a longer par 3 of about 200m and the 18th a wonderful par 5 finishing hole of about 440m. This combined with the the changes to our 9th hole to make it a par 4, will leave us once again with a par 72.
The dream since 1995 is at last realised!
On Saturday 28th June the President Mr. Frank Donck hit the opening drive on the first hole of the long awaited President's Nine. The course is named after Frank's father Mr. Josef Donck, the instigator behind the new nine hole course in Damme and former President, who died in 2009.
The President's Nine is reseved for members only until the 1st September and then will be open in combination with the existing front 9 holes to form an 18 hole course whilst works are done to the 17th and 18th holes of the existing Championship course.
We hope to have all 27 holes up and running in June 2015.
A warm welcome is assured when you visit Damme Golf and Country Club. Situated between the medieval Flemish towns of Bruges and Damme the unique polder landscape stretches towards the sea. The scenery has a very particular charm, which you can fully enjoy at the Damme Golf & Country Club. "It goes without saying that the greens and whole course are meticulously maintained", says manager Chris Morton. "But beyond the areas of the course which are "in play' we leave alone, so that Mother Nature can do her work. Natural ponds and small woods give our members and guests an authentic taste of the polders". And as a visitor recently told me, "you don't need any clubs to enjoy being on the course. Just walking around the course and having the pleasure of seeing such fantastic wildlife in such a beautiful setting, is a pleasure on it's own." This is the course to play for the pleasure of golf and nature together.
