The Club
Royal Waterloo is an inviting family club that offers a warm welcome to all golfers from Belgium and further afield who are looking to enjoy their leasure time, while observing the etiquette of the game (request information) .
The Club is located in the stunning Walloon Brabant region, a stone’s throw from the site of the famous battle of Waterloo (access map, contact details and tourist information).

The courses
There are three outstanding courses for visitors to enjoy : La Marache, Le Lion and Le Bois-Héros, designed by Fred Hawtree and upgrated by his son Martin, both celebrated golf course architects. Our courses are maintained by a team of more than 20 greenkeepers, who have made Royal Waterloo the finest 45-hole golf club in Belgium, one that is ranked among the 1,000 most beautiful clubs in the world.

A haven of peace and tranquillity deep in the Belgian countryside, it is enjoyed by golfers of all levels (see our rules regarding access to the courses), both those seeking pure golfing pleasure and those looking to become members (see fees below).

Played by the greats
In hosting international tournaments over the years, Royal Waterloo Golf Club has welcomed world reknowned players such as Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Curtis Strange, Ian Woosnam, Severiano Ballesteros, Jose-Maria Olazabal and Colin Montgomerie. Our club has been a venue for European Tour events in the 1980s and currently hosts a Challenge Tour competition and a number of other international junior and senior tournaments.
Belgian golfer Nicolas Colsaerts is an honorary member of the Club.
