Where2Golf says: 

The Empire Hotel & Country Club: Breathtaking sea views await as you tee it up on this Jack Nicklaus design at the Empire Hotel & Country Club in Brunei. As the centrepiece of this renowned luxury resort, the championship course winds through tree-lined avenues with spectacular South China Sea views along the way.

Developed from an area of natural woodland, the front-nine holes overlook the ocean from higher ground, the back-nine reaches down to the sea. A plethora of strategically placed bunkers will catch wayward drives that might miss the often tightish fairways. The large double-green shared by the par-4 9th and 18th holes is situated close to the seashore, presenting a memorable view of the sea and the hotel's six-storey glass atrium.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The signature 549-yard par-5 15th, runs directly along the beach with sprawling bunkers looming large from the tee and on your approach to the heavily defended green.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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.
