Golf breaks in Brussels, the Belgian capital, are easily accessed via the express Eurotunnel, which is why Brussels and the Brabant Wallon region at its Southern fringes are an emerging hot spot for golfers. The stunning forests and countryside, just a short drive from the city, are home to some outstanding golf courses, including the golf clubs at Royal Waterloo and Sept Fontaines, with a total of 11 courses within a 30 minute radius.
You can choose to base yourself either in the city of Brussels itself, or in Brabant Wallon, the ‘garden of Brussels’. Brabant Wallon is known for its beautiful scenery, and particularly for the battle ground at Waterloo, where Napoleon came unstuck in 1815. Belgium’s capital city itself is a popular tourist destination, but has the added attraction of being within easy reach of the golfing highlights.
The city itself is famous for its magnificent medieval central square, its Art Nouveau architecture and for being the headquarters of the European Union. Walking the enchanting streets and stopping at the occasional chocolate shop or beer house, Brussels will quickly get under your skin. With a superb choice of hotels, both urban and rural, and the fine array of championship golf courses, Brussels and Brabant Wallon are perfectly set up to ensure a fantastic Belgian golf escape.
