Where2Golf says: 

The Kendleshire Golf Club: Like the nearby Players Club, this is another relatively new and very good parkland layout, offering a good test of your overall golf game in a pleasant rural environment. Laid out on gently undulating terrain, which is not tiring to walk, this is quite a technically demanding course, requiring good course management. Water is a dangerous hazard on many holes, not least at the island-green par-3 11th, and on the approach shot to the water-defended par-4 16th green. Trees of many varieties, from apple to oak, and a wonderful array of bushes and shrubs (with lots of gorse in the mix) ensures there is plenty of flora lining the generally good-width and nicely undulating fairways. At times the flowering shrubs lend a colourful and almost garden-like feel to proceedings. Greenside and fairway bunkering is also a strong feature here; the large shallow bunkering providing something of a US-feel to some of the holes. On this 27-hole layout, the 9-hole Badminton section is the most recent and the shortest nine; the Hollows and Ruffet nines provide the most challenging combination. From all parts of the course there are pleasant views onto surrounding rural countryside.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
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.

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...
