Up to 84 ha, Hazebeekcourse (9 holes) and Langeleedcourse (18 holes) offer the ultimate golfing challenge to conquer an inland lane. Due to the lack of trees and a seaside location, the never-ending wind is an important factor.

A true challenge, drawn by the renowned British architect Jeremy Pern. In the clubhouse, a beautifully renovated old farmhouse, you will find both a contemporary brasserie and a fine-dining restaurant.
