Where2Golf says: 

Carlisle Golf Club: Plenty of tall birch and pine trees, plus some attractive rows of beech, have created a distinctly wooded parkland feel to much of this heathland golf course just outside Carlisle. Although not overly long at 6263 yards from the back tees, Carlisle's par-71 layout has many fine features to provide a thoroughly enjoyable and at times testing round of golf. Several shortish par-4's will provide the opportunity to score well, provided you keep it fairly straight from the tee, and don't stray too far towards the tree-line. The 6th, 7th and 8th are an attractive and varied trio of par-4's, coming before the shortish par-5 9th which takes you away again from the clubhouse. Water is only occasionally in play, most dangerously as it crosses the fairways on the 9th and par-5 15th holes. The par-4 11th also needs some care on a first outing. From a blind tee shot you will need to find a fairway that runs out after no more than 230 yards, at which point the hole doglegs sharply to the left. Upkeep is generally good here, although the resident rabbit population are not assisting the presentation of the often deep, revetted, greenside bunkering that protects many of the typically long and narrow greens. Although there is not too much to look at beyond the course, the pleasant (though never excessive) undulations, fine array of trees and woodland, and well-designed golf holes will keep you pleasantly occupied throughout.

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...
