Where2Golf says: 

Victor Harbor Golf Club: The most exciting, scenic and memorable shot you'll play at Victor Harbor is your first - perched high above the rest of the course, the layout's first-tee is located alongside the also elevated clubhouse - stretching out before you is a fabulous panorama, prominently featuring the Southern Ocean and the area's distinctive hills and coastal rock formations - this good-length, rifle-straight par-4 opener, plunges away down the hill, connecting you to the remainder of the course, which is a relatively flat, nicely tree-lined, parkland layout - a mix of tall eucalyptus, mature pines and many other native tree varieties line the usually good-width, sometimes tightish fairways - the small Inman River loops around the northern section of the course, but don't expect much here in the way of water hazards, except for two or three small ponds that come into play on a couple of holes - large, dish-shaped greenside bunkering is however something that threatens at several, although not all the holes - except for a small climb at the end of the front-nine loop, and a ski-tow that gets you back to the clubhouse from the 18th green, significant elevation change is confined to the spectacular opening hole - good maintenance and presentation standards are generally the case on this pleasant, tree-lined, parkland course - there is no housing on or around the perimeter, just a wonderfully natural environment of native trees and bushland, a rich haven for all manner of birdlife.

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...
