Where2Golf says: 

Hunstanton Golf Club: This thoroughly enjoyable out-and-back links course, deserves the many accolades regularly bestowed on it. Although the first few holes may not be the layout's most exciting, the real treasures unfold on the inward-nine. Here the course’s true links character makes for a wonderful golfing challenge.

The superb greens run fast and true, while the fairways are at times more lush than on the average links course. The North Sea is glimpsed only occasionally, allowing your full concentration to focus on the game at hand and Hunstanton's undoubted charms and quality.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The par-3 7th, the second short hole on the front-nine, is a classic "wee demon". Nestling among the dunes, the tee shot needs to carry a yawning front bunker and avoid the sharp drop to the right of the green. Depending on the wind direction, you could find yourself playing any one of your irons or hybrids from the tee!

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.

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.
