Nestled at the heart of the land, directly near the greens of holes 9 and 18, the putting green and the 10th tee, the Club House leaves an impression on visitors.
Ever since the Club was established up above Sart Tilman, members have been welcomed in a building with a thatch roof of an unmistakable style. The original architect had taken inspiration from the Golf Club House of Eindhoven which was built in the 1930s.
Though endearing to its members, its authenticity was also its Achilles heel. In March 2011, as renovation work had commenced, a fire devastated the majestic Club House and the thatch roof and the Club House at that time were completely destroyed.
This tragic stroke of luck led the Board of Directors to engage in a period of deep reflection. Reconstruct an identical structure or start from scratch? The second option was favoured.
The new building, a result of the efforts of the firm Archi 2000, was opened at the start of the 2014 season.
It proudly takes the place of the former Club House but the direction in which its base faces has changed and its volume has been considerably increased.
Its modernity is in stark contrast with the former building but does however offer all the utilities and services one might expect from a modern Club House, namely:
A floor space of 1,550m².
A 680m² terrace.
Men and women’s changing rooms with access to showers, washbasins, toilets and individual lockers for members.
A meeting room.
A lounge area with television.
A restaurant with a capacity for 220 people (extendible to 380 with the terraces).
However, even if the modern exterior aspect has been favoured, the warm hospitable feel afforded by the premises will definitely remind you of something you have experienced in the past.
On the 19th hole, the lively discussions around the bar will involve guests and members who are brought together under one feeling of hospitality.
