Few sports seem to go hand in hand quite like football and golf.
Something about the intensity of a career in football, under the floodlights of stadiums and the spotlight of the press, means that the quiet, tranquil setting of a golf course has been an appealing setting for footballers past and present. Add to this, the sensation that is Footgolf, a sensation we’ve already shown we enjoy at Life After Football, and you’ve got a perfect marriage between these two prestigious sports.
The setting of our most recent FootGolf event was Seve, the Rotterdam-based golfcenter that hosted a day of sensational vibes, food, drink and competitive spirit, as we played Footgolf on their beautiful course. It was a wonderful occasion, but let’s not forget that Seve is a fine home to the original game of golf, as well.
A beautiful collection of Par 3 holes that will make you forget about the hustle and bustle of the inner-city, with over 400 different trees that decorate this, the biggest golfcenter in the country, whilst you avoid hitting them with your drive. The course is ideal for beginners and more advanced players, as the club opens it’s doors to both old and new members every day.
So too is the driving range, as a heated selection of platforms provide a space for many people to practice their swing and, maybe grab a drink from the bar whilst doing so. The social aspect of Seve is just as crucial as the sport, as the two can intertwine either on the putting green of the 9th, or in the restaurant where food is of the highest quality. International chefs bring Mediterranean cuisine to the table with their own twist as family recipes make their way to the plates of visitors where fine wines will accompany dishes perfectly.
It seems there are more reasons to visit Seve than just to play golf, but if you are looking to hit the fairway we can’t recommend this place enough.
