Where2Golf says: 

Ashridge Golf Club: No wonder Sir Henry Cotton chose to become club professional here at Ashridge. This is a quintessentially English course, which occupies a large and quiet tract of woodland on the edge of the Chiltern Hills - some of the gently curving dog-leg holes are beauty and elegance in golfing guise. The layout comprises three-loops which all start and finish in view of the relatively new and chalet-like clubhouse. Most holes are tree-lined, gently undulating and stunningly natural. Good bunkering defends the greens, which often slope much more than you think - take your time and interrogate your putting lines carefully. Perhaps a touch of Wentworth about this course, without so much of the expensive real estate, but with a small herd of deer that seem unphased by the golf, until you get too close that is. A true English aristocrat among parkland golf courses.

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...
