Where2Golf says: 

Hesketh Golf Club's first two holes and final five, are characterised by sizeable sand dunes that give plenty of contour and character to the opening and closing stretches of the course. These holes effectively encircle the impressive clubhouse.

In the middle section of the course the terrain becomes considerably flatter, promoting more of a parkland and less of a coastal duneland feel to proceedings. The 6th and 7th holes run alongside an area of marshland, which stretches far into the distance, and is home to a well-known bird reserve. The sea itself is too far across the marshes to be a visible feature from the course, but with trees, water and deep rough bordering both sides of many holes you'll need to keep your full attention on the course itself.

Although not overly dramatic in terms of scenery, Hesketh is nonetheless a very pleasant and natural golf course, excellently maintained and a regular venue for prestigious regional amateur events.

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...
