Where2Golf says: 

Of the two courses here at Sept Fontaines Golf Club, Le Chateau course is the bigger and more impressive layout, compared to the shorter La Foret course. The Chateau course is laid out over partly-wooded and partly-open parkland where many tight drives await, especially through the tree-lined sections of the course. Keeping the ball in play, out of the trees and avoiding the good quality bunkering is the main objective from the tee; the tightness of the course means there is limited room for water hazards - although don't rule them out completely. Among many glorious holes, the 18th is a terrific risk-reward closing hole, with a carry over water onto the safety of the green - brilliant for settling any match plays that have lasted this far. This is a great layout on which to practice your course management skills and hone a game based on accuracy rather than length and power-driving. Spectacular as some of the holes may look in their undulating wooded environment (not least the wonderful downhill par-5 6th), beware - they are as tight as they look and a fraction less forgiving than you may think.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
