Where2Golf says: 

Collingtree Park Golf Club: Located just outside the famous shoe-making town of Northampton, Collingtree Park has more in common with an American resort-style layout than a classically English parkland course. Perhaps this isn't such a surprise, with American golfing legend Johnny Miller designing the course - his first layout in the UK. Several ponds, small lakes and water-filled ditches ensure the presence of water on over half the holes, while earthmounding beyond the fairways provides good definition to the holes in the more open areas of the course. There are several tight drives to be made, occasionally with houses flanking the holes, although it is more frequently water that will occupy your mind from the tee. Both nines finish with a tough approach shot; a ditch fronts the green at the par-5 9th, while the par-5 18th requires a deft approach onto a water-surrounded island green. No one ever said Johnny Miller design's were easy ! Bunkering makes its presence felt from time to time, although maintaining the pressure on your course management and shot-making is more usually entrusted to the water hazards and tightish drives, rather than a plethora of fairway or greenside bunkering. On the back-nine, traffic noise from the busy A45 road might provide a slight distraction, although the terrific closing holes, not least the par-4 17th and par-5 18th, will keep you fully focused on the golfing job at hand.

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.
