Recap of the Belgian Club Knockout

On the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of June, the finals of the Belgian Club Knockout, an amateur golf competition, were held in Rinkven International Golf Club, alongside the professional battles of the Belgian Knockout. 

The tournament that had started in February this year with over 1,900 amateur golfers from 60 participating clubs ended with a beautiful victory for Thibault Goemans, representative of Golf de Rigenée. As the first Club Knockout winner, he was publicly crowned at the Official Closing Ceremony alongside Guido Migliozzi, the Belgian Knockout 2019 Champion.

Wout De Leeuw from Krokkebaas Golf Club defeated the runner-up title in the Club Knockout. Loic Baumans from Naxhelet and Wilfried Walpot from Flanders Nippon, respectively, took the third and fourth places.

Providing amateur golfers with the opportunity to compete alongside the BKO, a European Tour event, was a great achievement and very special for us. A second edition next year sure isn’t out of the question, especially because of the huge amount of enthusiasm we have received.
