The courses

Royal Waterloo Golf Club offers 45 holes, 3 courses (two 18 holes La Marache and Le Lion, one 9 holes Le Bois-Héros), a pitch & putt (La Pépinière) and several training areas.

A truly majestic par 73 course measuring 6,296 meters, La Marache was designed by Fred Hawtree in 1960 and ranks high with the experts.

The greens were completely renovated by his son Martin Hawtree in 2004 and 2005 to bring them into line with USGA specifications.

One of Belgium’s true championship courses, it has played host to many leading names, among them Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo, Severiano Ballesteros and Jose-Maria Olazabal.

marache

Built in 1980, next to the battlefield of Waterloo.

The famous Lion’s Mound overlooks several of the holes.

The 6,395 meter course, which has also hosted an Open Laurent Perrier, was entirely remodelled by Martin Hawtree in 2014 and 2015.

This very challenging par 72 tests shot-making to the full.

lion

With its tree-lined fairways, this magnificent par 33 nine hole stretches for 2,160 meters across undulating terrain.
Originally designed by Martin Hawtree (then a 12 year-old under the tutelage of his father Fred) who redesigned the greens in 2003.
A true test for beginners and skilled players alike, Le Bois-Héros is a haven of tranquillity and a jewel of a course.
