Where2Golf says: 

Kooyonga Golf Club: Located just north of Adelaide Airport, but relatively undisturbed by the air traffic (which doesn't land or take-off directly overhead) - this excellently maintained and attractive Adelaide sandbelt course is laid out on nicely undulating terrain - pleasant though never overly dense rows of trees and areas of fairly penal, long grass separate the rolling fairways - a few tightish drives are mixed in with others of a more forgiving nature - excellent quality bunkering poses a fairway and greenside threat, but water hazards are not something you'll need to worry too much about here - the greens are relatively small and firm, but also considerably undulating, with slick run-off areas where bunkering is not present - the layout still follows the original Cargie Rymill routing, with an excellent variety of doglegging and straightaway holes - housing may surround the outer perimeter of this plot, but is rarely in view or in-range - the two gently doglegging opening par-5 holes should ease any rustiness in your swing, just in time to take on the ferociously bunkered par-3 3rd - as on many holes, the bunkers are cut right up to the very edge of the putting surface - some pleasant views and nicely elevated tee-boxes are to be found at the course's higher elevations - a handsomely crafted, always undulating layout, full of character and golfing challenges - large, stylish, modern clubhouse.

Did you know?

The name Kooyonga comes from its original owner/designer, Cargie Rymill, whose beachfront home was also called Kooyonga, a misinterpretation of an aboriginal word that he understood to mean "plenty sand, plenty water." | The Clubhouse dates back to 1924, and was built on ground where an old farmhouse named Surrey House once stood. | Kooyonga has hosted scores of top level competitions including five Australian Open Championships and three Australian Amateur Championships.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
