Where2Golf says: 

Sorrento Golf Club: Although a little on the short side, Sorrento is a delightful gem of a course, more parkland than links, played over wonderfully undulating terrain. The layout zig-zags its way out to the par-4 8th hole, then turns and zig-zags its way back again to the clubhouse. Throughout, the condition is immaculate. Some holes are quite garden-like in character, enhanced by a wonderful variety of flora and with a few natural lakes dotted around - water however is rarely in play. The couch-grass fairways are quite soft and springy, leading you to excellent and not too heavily bunkered greens. Although sea views are missing, the views from the course are embellished by the pleasant hillside properties of some of Sorrento's wealthier residents. The peaceful environment and friendly reception you'll get at Sorrento, marks this out as a rather special course among Melbourne's seemingly endless array of golfing treasures.

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.

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...
