Where2Golf says: 

The Players Club: An ambitious, exciting and (once you get to know it) rewarding course, very much in the modern parkland genre. Much of the course occupies gently undulating and relatively open terrain, where an abundance of water hazards need to be carefully negotiated and good-quality bunkering, particularly greenside, also requires your attention. Although recent tree-planting on sections of the course has yet to develop, the occasional presence of gorse bushes, proximity of older woodland and pleasant views onto partly wooded rural countryside, gives the course a more mature feel beyond its actual years. The greens are excellent, often large and full of inventive slopes and run-offs - at the 9th for example, the putting surface is a mere 54 yards wide, but only 35 deep ! Greens are not the only "stretch" factor here. How many professionals have reached the 696-yard par-5 8th in two ! The par-3's are excellent, with water dangerously in play on all four of them. Although some of the driving lines are not as clear as you'd want them, especially on a first outing, this is a course that grows on you the more you play it - fair but challenging. You'll need plenty of nerve and a great golf game if you try it off the tips - a total of 7617 yards (the UK's longest course !?).

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. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
