Where2Golf says: 

Heritage Golf & Country Club (Henley course): Two stunning and contrasting championship golf courses await at the Heritage Golf & Country Club, located alongside Sebel's Heritage Yarra Valley hotel. The original St John course sits closest to the resort and clubhouse, just south of the passing Yarra River. Across a small bridge on the river's north bank, you'll find the equally impressive Henley course. Laid out in a wonderfully natural and predominantly wetland environment, the course is overlooked by scenic hills that are covered in a mix of swaying grasses, trees and Yarra Valley vineyards. Tony Cashmore's challenging and relatively open layout, incorporates good-width, gently undulating fairways that glide past more water hazards than you can shake a stick at. A veritable feast of rustic-styled, rough-edged bunkering is also present. Although flatter, the front-nine has a few nicely elevated tees and also one or two blind drives to make. Just as you think the course will retain its wetland character right to the end, the par-5 13th leads you away from the water and into a picturesque valley, where kangaroos laze on the grassy hillsides. The par-4 14th presents another surprising change of scene as you head uphill to the highest part of the course, from where the views are fabulous. After negotiating a tee-to-green carry over water at the 15th, you tumble back downhill again at the long par-4 16th. Together with the original St John course, the Heritage offers one of Melbourne's best Stay & Play venues, with both its excellent courses not usually accessible on an outside visitor, daily play basis.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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.

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...
