Where2Golf says: 

McCracken Country Club: From the elevated clubhouse and adjoining 1st and 10th tees, McCracken offers commanding views - stretching out into the distance are the Fleurieu Peninsula's scenic, partly-forested, rolling hills - in the foreground is an expansive, open area, through which McCracken's two nine-loops set out - holes 1 and 10, a parallel pair of par-5s, run downhill to their respective greens that lie either side of the same small pond - on this ambitious, resort-style layout, water hazards (and occasional cascading water features) are something you'll encounter on several occasions, with many holes defended by small lakes and ponds - undulation change is also a constant - quite a few holes require significant climbs, not least at the par-4 9th (colloquially a bit of a "cardiac hill !") and at the wonderfully bunkered par-5 18th, which makes its way back up to the clubhouse, running parallel to and in the same open space as the 1st and 10th holes - good bunkering adds to the layout's array of challenges, while some of the holes on the course perimeter are flanked on one side by housing, which you'll also need to be mindful of - maintenance standards are good without necessarily being immaculate, on this testing, undulating layout, which exudes something of a US-style, resort course - onsite accommodation makes this an ideal Stay & Play venue when visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula, a popular South Australia holiday destination.

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.
