Where2Golf says: 

Eagle Point Golf Club: Eagle Point, located just south-east of Alabama's largest city, reinforces the Birmingham area's excellent golfing credentials. It is another in a strong line of very enjoyable, pleasantly undulating and well-designed golf courses. Exuding plenty of natural charm and character, and not without its challenges for players of all levels, the layout nestles down amongst wooded hills, with a small scattering of housing very occasionally in view, most noticeably to the left of the gently uphill par-4 1st. Most of the holes are lined by tall pines, with some oak and dogwoods also in the attractive mix of foliage that creates good definition for the fairways. However, the tree-line is never too dense, so ball-finding for those occasional wayward shots should never be too difficult. Water hazards need to be factored into your course management on five or six holes, most especially at the signature par-3 15th, which requires a downhill carry over water to land the ball safely on the green. Elevation changes at Eagle Point are never too severe, although a small hill on the layout's southern-most section, creates the highest point on the course, and accommodates two distinctly elevated tee boxes (for the par-5 8th and par-4 13th holes), and a couple of wonderfully elevated greens (for the par-4 12th and 14th holes).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
