The most lovely racetrack of Western Europe, consisting of a plural hole golf course, you will find in Ostend, at the Belgian coast. Already in the early 1900's, horse racing activities were planned on this track. In the 70's, 80's and 90's the Prince Rose...More

The course is small but has a great location across from the swimming pravillion and beach. Just an average race course but loved the large Bronze sculpture of the horse and jockey.

It is closed most of the year. July and August only open on Mondays, otherwise green is used sporadically as a golf course

Still is a place worth to visit at least once and live the atmosphere during an actual horse race. Especially the bookmakers are fun to see at work.
