Where2Golf says: 

Emerald Bay Golf Club: On Florida's Emerald Coast, with its excellent array of championship golf courses, Emerald Bay can certainly be counted amongst the gems - at this well maintained parkland layout, eight holes radiate away from or back to the clubhouse, giving you a good impression of the partly open, partly tree-lined holes that await - a pleasant mix of straightaway and doglegging holes will take you through avenues of pine trees, across wetland areas and skirting alongside several small lakes and ponds - one of the toughest stretches includes the water-bisected par-4 5th, sharply doglegging par-5 6th and long par-5 7th, all dangerously flanked by good-sized ponds - if 5, 6,and 7 form the layout's Amen Corner, then 14, 15, 16 and 17 comprise its most scenic sequence - the 14th is a short, tight par-4, played across a picturesque wetland area - the par-5 15th brings you out alongside the vast expanse of Choctawhatchee Bay, while the signature par-3 16th is played along the Bay's shoreline - the back tees of the short par-4 17th are just about in the Bay itself - throughout there are many good and testing holes culminating in a more scenic and natural back-nine, which threads its way through a quiet wetland/woodland environment - the front-nine is a little more parkland in style, with housing often flanking the holes on one side - in contrast to the recent fashion for oversized putting surfaces, here you'll encounter some of the smallest greens you've ever had to hit - Royal Troon may have its Postage Stamp hole, but here you have a serious philatelic collection !

Did you know?

You'll probably not be aware of it while playing the course, (unless you take a good look at your scorecard) but the Okaloosa-Walton county line runs north-south straight through the course. On a few holes like the par-5 15th and par-4 2nd, you'll be teeing off in Walton County and putting out in Okaloosa County. The name Okaloosa comes from the Native American Choctaw "oka losa", meaning black water.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park. Perhaps not as lauded as nearby Little Aston, and Copt Heath, this heathland gem also lays down a really enjoyable test of golf in a wonderfully natural setting. Read more... 
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...
