"THE PRESIDENT'S NINE"
Nov 2013. The President's Nine are nearly completly green! The 1st, 8th and 9th are already very close to being playable. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th are a couple of weeks behind and the 5th, 6th and 7th about a month. It realy is beginning to look great at last after 17 years of waiting. And with good winter weather we are on course to being open mid 2014!
Works on the new 17th and 18th of the main course are also in advanced stages. The new 17th, a par 3 is going to be a wonderful hole. Next September we will complete the works on these holes, so that they will be playable in 2015.
The existing course works are moving forward, the bunker to the left of the 7th looks fantastic and the improvements to the 8th are great. The ponds on the right of the existing 7th and 16th have worked wonders for the holes and both members and guests have been giving many complements.
NICOLAS COLSAERTS IN DAMME!
24th July 2013
Thanks to the fantastic organisation of Golf.be, all the wonderful volunteers from our club and of course Nicolas Colsaerts, Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry we had a fantastic day.
The golf played by all 3 players was incredible and the talent that they showed was a joy to be seen. Watching to the very last hole to see Nicolas birdie to beat the Professional course record with 6 under par 66 and finish only one shot ahead of Thomas Pieters, who unfortunately missed his last putt from 2 meters.
All this watched by 2000 people.
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.
