FLANDERS

ABOUT FLANDERS

Brugge [Bruges] is a 1½ hour drive from the Eurotunnel terminal, almost all motorway. Renowned as the ‘Venice’ of the north, because of its canal network, the charming and historic city is a lively tourist hub and offers lots to see and do. Our hotels are central, allowing for easy walking to your bars and restaurants; think about a golf-free day, to enjoy all the history, architecture …and beer… on offer.

You can choose golf courses en route, and whilst there, coastal or parkland options are on offer. The only downside to a city like Brugge is the parking, which is available, but non-reservable, and a bit pricey.

ABOUT FLANDERS

Hotel Martin's Brugge
Brugge   150 Rooms   

Situated in the heart of the medieval market town of Bruges. The hotel has its own bar and lounge area, the rooms have warm, modern, comfortable interiors. Great dining opportunities in the city centre. Bruges, with it’s network of canals is known as the Venice of the north. The City is steeped in the history of trade and cultural exchanges dating back to the middle ages.

Facilities: Stylish accommodation in the heart of this medieval market town that offers so much to itsvisitors. The hotel has its own bar and lounge area, the rooms have warm, modern, comfortable interiors. Great dining opportunities in the city centre.

Golf: This is not a primary golf destination, but there are several quality courses within easy driving distance, and you can stop off on the way or combine Brugge with another Belgian, or French course/hotel.

Our View: We are pleased to offer this much requested city. Hotel parking must be paid locally and cannot be pre-booked. The ‘class’ break takes in the ‘Royal’ courses at Zoute, Latem and Ostende, but green fees are never reduced at these private clubs.

Hotel Martin's Relais
Brugge   44 Rooms   

Once the residence of the Governor of Amsterdam, this is a smart, welcoming city centre hotel, with small rear garden and very well appointed rooms, all of differing décor and various categories. Canal view rooms cost a little extra, but take you to the heart of what Bruges is about, the ‘Venice’ of the North. We include a ‘Cava (Premium Spanish sparkling wine) buffet breakfast’ as this is a destination to allow yourself time to enjoy the spacious public rooms and relative luxury of this hotel.

Details: Access to a number of courses in the west Flanders area, though not a region brimming with courses. Royal Zoute [Knokke le Heist] is close by, and as recently voted in Europe’s top 5 [Golf World], you may wish to spoil yourself with a great hotel, as well as a great course. [Also see information on Martin’s Brugge under Golf and Our View]

Prices: Not available to golfers at festive periods.

Golf: Nearby are Damme and Royal Zoute. Possible to travel to Oostburg, Royal Latem & Palingbeek

Our View: A more recent addition to the Martins group of hotels, this is a cosy and very welcoming hotel, in a quiet, but very central, spot.

 Championship 6223m     Par 72

At this welcoming club you will be made to feel like a member. Smart clubhouse with superior facilities, and the course is very well maintained. The18 holes are easy to walk, punctuated by natural [wet] obstacles and the wind off the surrounding countryside will add to the difficulty, as will the excellent greens.

Much of the back nine of the Championship course has been revised, with completely new 17 & 18, where you will find plenty of water. Further 9, known as ‘President’s Nine’ complement the main course, set in the dunes. Great practice and training facilities, restaurant, bar and terrace.
