Where2Golf says: 

The Gog Magog Golf Club (Old course): You will not find the giants Gog and Magog roaming these hills any longer, as legend says they once did. What you will find is a friendly and welcoming golf club, two picturesque and challenging courses, and the home of Cambridge university undergraduate golf. The Old course (1901) is the more charming, the Wandlebury (1997) is considerably more open and still a long way from maturity. On the Old course the first two holes take you up onto a kind of plateau, which gives spectacular views over Cambridge and the surrounding hills. The 16th, 17th and 18th bring you back down again in equally spectacular fashion.

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...
