Architect

H. S. Colt

In 1909, when Harry S. Colt was just getting started in golf architecture and served as Sunningdale's secretary, he took on Zoute as his first commission on the Continent. Subsequent modifications include repair from the ravages of World War II. Nevertheless, much remains of the Colt style and layout, particularly in the bunkering. Charming houses surround this fairly flat but gently undulating links course over sandy soil. Since the winds here can be a challenge, most of the holes offer plenty of space and wide routes in. A favored destination for Belgium's upper crust (and, since the founding of the European Union, bureaucrats from Brussels), Knokke-Le Zoute, as it has long been called, is nevertheless more than just a holiday course; indeed it was until recently regular stop on the European Tour. Some of the finest clubhouse lunches in Knokke, or anywhere for that matter, are another major draw.

Links style golf course that will play short without wind and difficult when the wind is up! The layout is a real gem and you’ll have to shape your shots to put yourself in good positions. The rough is not penalizing right now but if they would let it grow a bit, it would be a real test of golf! My favorite holes are holes 3, 10 and 15. Royal Zoute is a very traditional golf club with a beautiful clubhouse and a great kitchen! A must-play in Belgium 🇧🇪
