WELCOME TO DAMME
A warm welcome awaits you here in Damme Golf & Country Club.
Our 18 holes Championship Course, the 9 holes Presidents Nine and 9 holes Compact (short course), all in harmony with nature give to golfers of all levels a wonderful golfing experience.
Set in the heart of the Flemish “polders” the holes meander through this beautiful region.
The club which is a member of both the Flemish Golf Federation (VVG) www.golfvlaanderen.beand the Royal Belgium Golf Federation www.golfbelgium.be and of course the RBGF is a member of the European Golf Association www.ega-golf.ch. They have links with the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews www.randa.org who is the governing authority for the rules of golf.
The base line of the club is “The Pleasure of Golf and Nature Together” and as the manager Chris Morton says “the biggest compliment we have ever had was when a visitor remarked that you don’t need a set of clubs to enjoy the course, just take a walk through this glorious nature”.
And when we had the Essex PGA Pro Am by Leisure Link here in October Mr David Ferret said of our President’s Nine “The unexpected highlight of our three day tournament was the new nine holes at Damme. A great mix of well designed, risk and reward golf holes. It’s not often that you play new golf holes in such good condition and where each tee brings a new challenge, a proper thinking golfers dream”,
Chris who is member of both the PGA of Great Britain www.pga.info and ex -President of the PGA of Belgium www.pga.be says that we look very well after the golf areas of the course, but all those out of play areas we leave alone and let Mother Nature do the rest. This is what creates this unique environment.
Damme is a club for both members and visitors, for beginner golfers with our very successful start to golf programme and Compact Course and also a challenge for the better players, with Belgian Ryder Cup player Nicolas Colsaerts www.nicolascolsaerts.com as course record holder (66 in 2013).
We look forward to having the pleasure of your company here Damme so that you can enjoy “The Pleasure of Golf and Nature Together”.
