Where2Golf says: 

Copt Heath Golf Club: If ever a golf course was defined by its bunkering, then Copt Heath is it. Laid out over relatively flat terraine, it is the impressive, high-faced bunkers that provide excellent definition to most fairways, and deeper versions that guard many greens - giving you plenty to think about whether driving or making your approach shots. The par-4 opening hole underlines this fact most aesthetically; stray too far to the right off the tee and any one in a fine array of open-mouthed bunkers lies in wait. Trees also play their part, lining many fairways although never too densely. The course occasionally opens out, but rarely does it take on the feel of a classic heathland layout, despite some recent gorse bush planting. Overall, Copt Heath is a very pleasant golf course, with many excellent and stylish holes, superb bunkering and plenty of challenge for high and low handicappers alike.

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...
