Where2Golf says: 

The Els Club, Dubai Sports City: Opened for play in February 2008, The Els Club is located within the extraordinary Dubai Sports City development, and is the first course in the Middle East designed by Ernie Els. Although not yet visited by Where2Golf, all reports suggest it is living up to its billing as a world-class layout. Set on the undulating slopes of native desert vegetation, it is a links style layout combining traditional classic design, but with a genuine sense that you are playing golf in the desert. Featuring broad and gently rolling fairways, steep greenside bunkers and grass swales around the greens, it plays to 7,538 yards from the back tees and over 80 bunkers can potentially be brought into play. This 18-hole championship golf course is set to become one of Dubai's most prestigious "trophy" courses, and will complement the Victory Heights residential community of more than 900 villas.

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...
