Where2Golf says: 

Long Reef Golf Club: Every major city has its lesser known golfing gems. Sydney is fortunate to have Long Reef, a wonderful clifftop course, combining fabulous back-nine views with a strong and testing links style layout. The course occupies the entirety of a gently sloping piece of headland that juts out into the Pacific Ocean (Tasman Sea), allowing you to look back onto the cliffs and beaches of North Sydney from many holes. The course itself has far more subtlety and challenge than you may at first think; the opening three holes should correct any thoughts you have that this will be an easy-going slog-fest on a very open course - almost, but not quite, devoid of trees. Significant improvements designed in the mid-1990's by Peter Thomson, added some links-like earth mounding, new tee-boxes, additional water hazards and many well-placed bunkers, all of which toughened up the course. Thankfully Thomson's recommendation that the rough be kept unpleasantly high has not been strictly enforced. The views on the back-nine, as you climb the gentle slope of the headland, are some of the best you'll get on a golf course anywhere - never mind just in Sydney. The par-4 16th and 17th holes are an especially scenic pair, both downhill and both with the beach (OOB) on your left.

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.
