Where2Golf says: 

Guavaberry Resort & Country Club: Potentially Guavaberry is one of the best inland golf courses in the Dominican Republic. The excellent and challenging Gary Player design, weaves its way in two nine-hole loops through a natural environment of palm trees and native bushes, where housing has yet to take hold. At times wonderfully undulating, at others flatter, there are many holes to thrill and delight. One or two extravagant water features have been incorporated into the layout, not least a sizable waterfall and cascading stream that protects the greens (left and right) at the spectacular, double-green par-3 13th. The rock-lined, island-green par-3 15th is another memorable hole - the final member of a fabulously varied collection of par-3s. The good-width, nicely rolling fairways create a relatively open feel to the layout, but don't stray too far from the lightish rough, beyond which much thicker, ball-swallowing vegetation awaits. Gauvaberry's new owners are intent on reversing a period of neglect and poor green-keeping, which has held Guavaberry back in recent years. But don't let talk of less than perfect maintenance standards put you off coming to this great layout, which remains one of the island's most natural and interesting golf courses.

Did you know?

The guavaberry or rumberry, not to be confused with the guava fruit, is a tree which grows in the Caribbean, especially in the eastern islands. Guavaberry trees can grow up to 60 ft high, producing an orange-red fruit, which is about half the size of a cherry. Guavaberries are a popular ingredient in jams and drinks, and are also used to flavour rum, producing Guavaberry liqueur.

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...
