For more than 25 years the golf course was built on the land of the Château de la Bawette. Initially a nine-hole course was laid out on land and the early eighteen-hole course was in the wooded area surrounding the estate. The courses and the golf school were designed by Tom Mc Auley, the Irish architect.
Both courses were inaugurated on the 6th of June 1988.
A small farmhouse became a temporary club house. Managed by Dadi, whose couscous was famous!
The present clubhouse was designed by André Jacqmain, a famous Belgian architect, and was formally opened on the 14th of October 1989.
Many parties were organized in order to celebrate the 3rd, 5th and 7th anniversaries of the club with outstanding shows featuring the club members.
In September 2013, the Club celebrated its 25th anniversary with a 2-day competition and a memorable diner for 200 guests. Olivier Laurent was on stage before his show at l’Olympia in Paris.
In 2011, the site of the 9-hole course was sold to the city of Wavre. The ‘Le Parc’ course was re-designe
d and refurbished in order to offer the members a completely drained and renewed course.
The asbl Golf du Château de la Bawette who gathers the full members was founded in September 1987.
The site of the golf du Château de la Bawette provides a great variety of landscapes on 65 hectares: mildly undulating parkland, wooded valleys, hundred-year-old trees, watercourse and ponds. You can encounter deer, bird of prey, palmiped and wildfowl.
The greenkeeper and his team work throughout the year to preserve the natural environment for the members and guests.
