Where2Golf says: 

Warrnambool Golf Club: Occupying predominantly undulating duneland terrain, Warrnambool Golf Club is located above and a little closer to the Southern Ocean than the good-sized, coastal town of the same name - the golf course alternates between a flatter-looking, open section, and more significantly undulating stretches that push well into the coastal dunes, getting you to within 200 metres of the seashore - with many towering dunes between you and the beach, ocean vistas from the course rarely feature, and are mainly confined to the elevated tee of the par-4 5th - aptly named Sea View, the 5th is Warrnambool's signature hole, and definitely a case of the longer you drive, the tighter the bush-lined fairway becomes - the middle-section of the front-nine and most of the back-nine are most firmly ensconced in the wonderfully natural and ever-undulating duneland - small trees and bushes threateningly line many of the holes - although the fairways are generally good-width, they get testingly tight on a few occasions as they weave through the coastal, bushland terrain - accurate shot-making will be needed, not least at the drivable par-4 8th, played from a wonderfully elevated tee, and long gently doglegging par-5 10th - the greens here are firm and fast, with many demanding slopes and borrows - this very enjoyable and challenging layout, is characterised by good maintenance and presentation standards throughout, and a predominantly natural feel provided by the coastal dunes.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
