The National Sports Council
My name is Christiaan Vermeulen, 51, and I am the Club Captain. Together with my wife, also a member of our club, I am a passionate father of 2 daughters and a golf fanatic. I love the sport. I am professionally active as general manager of an IT Consultancy company. Above all proud to be allowed to build on the growth of our beautiful club, The National, almost literally in my backyard: born in Moorsel (Tervuren) and now living in Wezembeek-Oppem. The National Golf Brussels is located between both. I stand at the head of our sports council and happy to serve all our members and visitors, to give them as much fun as possible.
I am Ivan Duncan, happily married with two children and two grandchildren. Which my grandson also plays golf and my granddaughter works as a student at The National. I am your Head Marshall, living in Zaventem, close to my favorite golf club. Because of my Scottish roots I am possessed by the beast. I have been playing golf for more than 20 years. I spend most of my free time at The National, where I try to lead competitions in good jobs with my fellow Marshalls. I am looking forward to take on this task.
It's been 44 years since I contracted the golf bug on the magnificent links of Royal Ostend G.C. The contracted virus was so virulent that golf became my profession. In 1980 I started importing golfer's equipment and golf course material and in 1983 I opened the first store in Belgium exclusively dedicated to golf. From 1987 I also invested myself as a golf manager ("Secretary of Golf" as it was said at the time) by launching the Golf Château de la Tournette. Then the vagaries of the job did that I had the opportunity to work as a manager in other beautiful golf courses in Belgium (Golf de Durbuy, Five Nations Golf Club, Royal Antwerp GC ...) and France (Golf d'Apremont) , Blue Green Chantilly Golf). I am very happy and proud to be able to finish, as Sport Secretary, my career at the superb The National Golf Brussels.
Young Golfers Captain
Jacques Saint Remy
My name is Jacques Saint-Remi. I have been a Junior Captain since the end of 2017. I have been a member of The National Golf Brussels since 2016, as well as my wife Claire. We have two big kids who are hockey players and not (yet?) Golfers. I was Youth Leaser and then President of a hockey club in the Brussels region, before going into golf. My professional career has been in the IT and telecommunications sectors. My ambition as Captain of Juniors at The National Golf Brussels is to develop activities for young people, boys and girls, up to 18 years: to offer the best a framework where they can develop their talents to the maximum, and for all the juniors, a nice place to practice in a friendly way our beautiful sport.
