Welcome at Golf De Palingbeek

Located in the heart of the picturesque beauty of the Flemish hill country and close to the historical town of Ypres, our green gently undulating golf course (6.165 metres, par 72) offers a wide variety of challenges to golfers of all levels. The elegant clubhouse with its attractive terrace is housed in what in former times was the Voormezele castle. It is a very pleasant place to relax, in which both golfers and non-golfers can enjoy our excellent restaurant and wine cellar, not forgetting our Belgian beer selection.
