Where2Golf says: 

West Lakes Golf Club: Originally called Riverside Golf Club, West Lakes is located just a kilometre or so north from its Adelaide sandbelt neighbours, Royal Adelaide and The Grange - the golf course at Riverside offers another enjoyable and challenging round played in a partly open, partly tree-lined parkland environment - the course's sandy subsoil ensures plenty of firm, fast-running fairways, as well as stylish, sharp-edged bunkering that is variously found at the front, back and sides of the greens - the mix of straightaway and doglegging holes are never overly wide, and will require accurate driving, otherwise you'll be playing recovery shots from under the trees or adjoining fairways - a liberal scattering of round-topped maritime pines, tall eucalyptus and several other tree varieties provide the holes with good definition - although not characterised by significant elevation changes, West Lakes is not without its dips and hollows, rolling mounds and small hillocks, which add interest to several holes - among the pick of the holes, the par-4 14th gives you plenty to think about, with water making a rare appearance as the fairway bends round into a slightly elevated green - the same small pond also threatens at the snaking par-5 9th, which makes a sharp right turn as you approach the heavily bunker and tree defended green.

Did you know?

West Lakes Golf Club (until 2010 known as Riverside GC) emanated from the Woodville Gardens GC, which was established in 1934 but was forced from its location due to the post-war building boom in the late 1940s. The course at West Lakes (then named Riverside) wasn't created until 1951 when the present site was turned from wasteland to the beginnings of the course played on today.

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...
