For more than 25 years the golf course was build on the estate of the Château de la Bawette. Initially a nine hole course was laid out on land and the earlier eighteen hole in the woods surrounding the estate.  The courses and the golf school was designed by Tom Mc Auley, the irish architect.

Both courses were brought into play on the 6th of June 1988.

The former clubhouse was provided temporarily in a small farmhouse managed by Dadi whose couscous was very 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 featured by the members of the club.

In September 2013, the Club celebrated his 25th anniversary with a competition during two days and a memorable diner for 200 guests. Olivier Laurent was on stage before his show at l’Olympia in Paris.IMG_2857

In 2011, the site of the 9 hole course was sold to the city of Wavre. The ‘Le Parc” course were re-designed and refurbished in order to bring to 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 cross deer, bird of prey, palmiped and wildfowl.

Everyday, the greenkeeper’s team work at the preservation of the fauna and the flora for the pleasure of the members and their guests.
