Where2Golf says: 

Verdura Golf & Spa Resort (East course): Located on the south coast of Sicily near the town of Sciacca, Verdura is a relatively recent addition to Europe's fine array of Mediterranean Stay&Play venues. With two similar length championship layouts and a 9-hole short course, Verdura presents top-class golf and resort facilities.

Both the East and West layouts at Verdura were designed by leading American architect Kyle Phillips. The generally higher-rated East course ranks with some of the best in Italy, while the also links-style West course is not too far behind. Early highlights on the pleasantly undulating East include the short par-4 3rd and the beachside par-4 5th and short par-3 6th, each with stunning outlooks.

On the back-nine loop, from the par-5 14th the course turns seaward, sweeping across glorious links terrain. The best is saved till last, with the penultimate hole climbing to an elevated green for another stunning view out to sea. A few steps away are the tees of the fabulous par-4 18th, which runs parallel and close to the shoreline. A wonderful finishing hole on this immensely scenic and challenging seaside links-style course.

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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
