Where2Golf says: 

Chart Hills Golf Club: Set against a picturesque backdrop of pleasant and gently undulating Kent countryside, you will find plenty of golfing challenges in Nick Faldo’s excellent Chart Hills layout. The opening par-5 reveals the scale of the impressive bunkering that abounds on the course, which is laid out on expansive and gently undulating terrain. The par-4 2nd signals the occasional presence of threatening water hazards that will need to be navigated over or around on about half the holes. Generally there is enough space for your tee-shots to be hit with confidence (especially once you get to know the course), although at the short, island-green, par-3 17th, you'll find only a modest-sized water-surrounded green to aim at. With plenty of memorable bunkering along the fairways and guarding many of the spacious greens, Chart Hills lays down an excellent golfing challenge in a fine English rural setting.

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.
