Oostende's Hippodrome was originally constructed, in 1883, as a horse racing venue. It was designed by the French architect Alexandre Marcel and opened by the Duke of Wellington and King Leopold II.
Horse racing was suspended during the Second World War, after which the Hippodrome was only used for occasional races during the summer. In the late 1990's the course was used for concerts and in 2004 became the 9-hole Wellington Golf Club.
Whilst this is a members club it is also open to non-members with green fees starting from 15 euros which allows use of the modernised clubhouse in the "Castle".Related to:

The best Belgian basketballteam
The best belgian basketballteam 'BC Telindus Oostende' has a new stadium! It's very nice and now it's up-to-date with the European top! I can strongly recommend to see a game in the stadium because it's very good entertainment even if you are not that much of a sportsfan!
BCO : Spectacular basketball in Sleuyter Arena !
Spectacular basketball with ex-NBA players or great players from Easter Europe.
You will be surprised of the live atmosphere and tension this brings!
Every 2 weeks you can watch Base Oostende playing at home on Saturday.
It is one of the best basketball teams in Belgium (usually nr 1 or 2) with great players bought from over whole Europe and even from the NBA!
This combined with East European basket players and our local talent makes it worth watching an atmospheric ballgame! 2009 was a difficult season (no playoffs) but we expect a better 2010 with a whole new team.
Apparently, there's a thing called Kite Surfing. Um, I guess you could just look at my Oostende page for details, but it's pretty cool. If you're into that sort of thing you might want to check it out.
Equipment: Surf board, kite, cable, guts.Related to:
