Where2Golf says: 

St Michael's Golf Club: Small trees and bushes line the fairways on the first few holes and the distinctly undulating terrain may have you thinking this will be a hilly, tree-lined experience. Not so. At the 6th hole you emerge into a very linksy and flatter environment, with the open terrain allowing many glorious views onto the Pacific Ocean and the wonderful cliffs that make up this coastline. The rest of the course seems to alternate between this open, links environment, while at other holes the small trees and bushes return. The best run of holes starts with the sharply dog-legging par-4 11th (a blind drive makes it tough the first time you play it), then onto the beautifully bunkered par-3 12th, followed by the 13th, a short par-5 that starts from an elevated tee, squeezes through a relatively tight fairway, and finishes at a green just above the wave pounded rocks. The overall quality of upkeep, especially on and around the greens, is generally good, although beyond the fairways the condition can become a tad rustic. Two other golf courses are clearly in view from St Michael's, New South Wales from a couple of the early holes, and The Coast GC from several later holes. All in all, St Michael's is a very natural and wonderfully scenic course - well worth a visit.

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.
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...
