Where2Golf says: 

Castle Hill Country Club: This excellent 18-hole parkland layout comprises four loops of holes that radiate out, down and then back up again to the impressive modern clubhouse. Although the terrain slopes away from the clubhouse, its not too onerous to walk, and the course itself should not create overly raised stress levels (even if the par-3 2nd does carry the name - Beauty & Terror !). The good-width fairways are pleasantly tree-lined with a variety of gum trees (eucalyptus) and firs, but rarely do they have you feeling "crowded in" from the tee - this is a course where you can exercise your driver - although its not needed on every par-4 or par-5. Several "in play" water hazards, quite deep greenside bunkering, and the large and slopey greens are likely to present the greatest threats to your scorecard and require some careful course management at times. The back-nine starts off in a more garden-like and ornamental setting, which also signals that water will play a bigger role as you thread your way through the closing stretches. Overall a very pleasant and busy location for a golf outing in Sydney's north-west suburbs.

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...
