Where2Golf says: 

Rock Creek Golf Club: Laid out amongst the woods and wetlands that border Mobile Bay (which is less than a mile away), Rock Creek is a pleasantly undulating, mainly wooded golf course has won many admirers. The two nine-hole loops, arranged on either side of the clubhouse, wind their way between good quality housing, with one strongly designed hole following another. The excellent back-nine, with less real estate in evidence, has some gloriously natural holes, not least on the closing stretch that starts with the wonderful par-3 16th, which demands a downhill carry over wetlands to find the safety of the green. The long and very attractive par-4 17th also hugs the side of the wetland, with danger all around the green in the form of substantive bunkering, in addition to the wetland. On the front nine, the hole you will surely remember is the par-4 2nd, requiring a well positioned tee shot and then a long carry over a wide patch of wetland to the elevated green. If your second shot should fly too long, there's every chance it might bounce back onto the green off a tall wooden bulkhead that stands behind the green. Overall, a very well presented and testing golf course, where the real estate blends nicely into the background, allowing you to concentrate on the challenges and demands of Earl Stone's absorbing layout.

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...
