Where2Golf says: 

Denarau Golf & Racquet Club: Denarau Island (separated from the mainland of Viti Levu by two rivers) is known for its many luxury ocean-front hotels. Behind them sits the 18-hole Denarau golf course. Briefly, for two holes, this very enjoyable and well-maintained course gets you down to the beach and the Pacific Ocean's edge.

Created from mangrove swamp, three snaking water channels ensure that water hazards come into play on 15 of the 18 well-spaced holes. There are forced carries over water at all the par-3s. Holes like the par-5 18th not only have water hugging one side of the fairway, but you'll also need to cross the small canals twice on your way to the water-fronted final green. The layout also incorporates a unique Pacific theme with a liberal scattering of palm trees along the fairways and some bunkers shaped like simple marine creatures (.... spot them if you can).

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: the par-4 15th is Denarau’s signature hole. This long par-4 plays past a tree in the middle of the fairway, and takes you out (for the first time) to a palm-fringed green directly on the Pacific seashore. Both captivating and enchanting; a South Pacific hole to savour. Catch this hole at dusk and you'll probably be entertained to a fabulous sunset ..... but don't tarry too long .... there's still three challenging holes still to play on this very enjoyable Fijian course.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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...
