20th Anniversary Edition

“Vlerick golf: happy day with happy people: don’t miss it !”
(Eric De Puydt – Winner 2018)

Vlerick Alumni kindly invites you to attend and celebrate the festive 20th edition of the Vlerick Alumni Golf Challenge and Initiation at the Golf & County Club Oudenaarde on Saturday, 22 June 2019.

This event is available for students, Alumni and their guest.

Over the years, the Vlerick Alumni Golf Challenge has become a “Landmark” Alumni Event. It is the “Classic” on your Golfing calendar you can simply not afford to miss.

Located in the estate of the impressive Petegem Castle (built in 1847), the Golf & Country Club Oudenaarde offers two superb 18-holes courses and is yielding increasing recognition for its gastronomic 19th hole.
Traditionally this event is the ideal moment to kick off your golfing summer and we really hope you will be able to take this great opportunity to network amongst Vlerick golfers and their friends.

To encourage the early registrations, an “Early Birdie” i.e. a fun weekend driving the Jaguar or Land Rover of your dreams, offered by Vernaeve, will be awarded to one of the first 50 paid registrations. (Payment Date will be used to determine cut-off)
