Noordwijkse Golfclub celebrates centennial with tournament for visitors of the seaside resort

thursday 4 jun 2015

In 2015 the Noordwijkse Golfclub, one of the most beautiful and both by golfers and experts highly appreciated golf courses of the Netherlands and Europe, celebrates its centennial. To celebrate this, and because the municipality Noordwijk celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2016, a tournament will be organised on 13, 14 and 15 August 2015.

In this twentieth lustrum year the Noordwijkse Golfclub re-confirms the relations with its environment and organises various lustrum events, such as this tournament. It also tightens the bonds of friendship with neighbouring and befriended golf clubs at home and abroad, with Staatsbosbeheer (Dutch Forestry Commission) and with the municipality and seaside resort Noordwijk.

Tournament for the seaside resort visitors: a tribute to the history of the course
Although it is the first time that this tournament will be organised, the event has a strong link with the history of the course. In September 1915 – when still a 9-holes course in the north dunes of Noordwijk – the course was officially opened with a series of games in which members and visitors of the seaside resort participated. With the organisation of this tournament the Noordwijkse Golfclub pays a tribute to this past, highlighting a meeting between members of the club and resort visitors in a golf tournament. 

The tournament is to take place at the Noordwijkse Golfclub on Thursday 13, Friday 14 and Saturday 15 August 2015. For participation a handicap of 24 or less is required.
