The Royal Ostend Golf Club was founded in 1903 and stretches out in the dunes in the middle of the Belgian coastline. As the only links in Belgium, it provides a challenging and technical golf course, as well as outstanding views over the sea and the dunes. When the wind is blowing across the narrow fairways, the course challenges one’s skill and concentration!

I really enjoyed playing Royal Ostend Golf Club. The greens were perfect and very fast. It's a tricky links course that will play differently every day depending on the wind. It can be really fun if the wind helps you on the front nine as you will be able to reach par 5s in two and even hit the 1st (par 4) and 12th holes (par 4) in one shot. But again it's always about risk and reward so you need to be careful. The 3rd hole is a 220 meter long par 3 that played against the wind twice. A par feels like a birdie 😅 The finishing stretch is quiet narrow with holes 15 and 16. If you hit the fairways, the holes are fairly easy but you can easily lose a ball on those holes... I guess the course used to be much more difficult and interesting when the rough was higher between the holes. You will see many players hit their tee shot on the fairway of another hole to avoid water hazards. This is why I am giving the course a 3 star instead of a 4 star rating. The clubhouse is very clean and has a nice terrasse. The driving range is also ok but you can only hit from mats. If you are in the area, Royal Ostend GC is certainly one of the best courses to play but Royal Zoute Golf Club in Knokke is in another league...
