SlicingMyWayThroughLife review

Golf & Country Club De Palingbeek is located near lovely historical town Ypres less than an hour drive from Brussels. Both the golf course itself and the region are loaded with history, especially from WWI as you actually play on the most famous battlefield of WWI and in between the trenches of both fighting sites... While playing you also pass other remnants of war, such as German bunkers, German mine shaft, remains of the tank and also British observation post can be seen from the golf course. Out of respect for the countless victims here in both conflicts, the club has also placed information panels alongside the tees and published a brochure “The Historic Palingbeek” which explains more about the relevant historical sites. This natural parkland layout is very enjoyable and it is a real pleasure to play. What you see is what you get, no hidden surprises. The course will reward good shots and will still allow some mishits. There are quite a few good risk and reward holes. Holes 7,8,9,10 and 11 are a very nice stretch, also 15th hole is a nice dogleg right par-5 and 18th short dogleg left par-4 is great and technical finishing hole with lake protecting the green. The course was well maintained with nice fairways and good greens. The clubhouse is quite bright with beautiful terrace overlooking the 9th and 18th green. After our round of golf we were not disappointed with the cuisine as the food in the golf club restaurant was excellent. The staff was great and Thibault was a great guide and playing partner. Pro-shop needs improvement though. If you are in the area Ypres is a must see and it is only 10 minutes drive from the club. Make sure you visit the famous Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing which is a war memorial dedicated to all the British and Commonwealth soldiers who died in the Ypres Salient area during the WWI. All in all a day very well spent on golf, good food and history.
