Where2Golf says: 

Fairwinds Golf Course sits just above St Lucie Airport, but the last thing you'd suspect in this generally quiet and peaceful environment is an "International" airport on your doorstep - this wonderfully linksy Jim Fazio design, benefits from a modicum of earthmounding, breaking up the innate flatness of the original terrain - in keeping with the course's links-style persona, the feel is generally quite open, with a scattering of pines, palms, oaks and pampas grass separating the good-width, nicely rippling fairways - big-hitters will enjoy this open and generally forgiving layout, provided they straighten things up in time for the more water threatened back-nine - this second nine-hole loop brings plenty of water into play, courtesy of four small lakes, alongside which several holes are routed - two of the best are the shortish risk-reward snaking par-5 13th and the seriously water-flanked, right-to-left doglegging par-4 18th - around the often large and slightly elevated greens, your bunker play and pitching out of bermuda-grassed sloping lies will be tested - not all greens however are bunker defended, with just one greenside bunker in play at the par-4 10th, and none at the ensuing par-3 11th and par-4 12th holes - the posse of sand-traps at the 13th redresses the balance - with no housing around the course, a peacefully natural environment can be enjoyed here, broken only by the occasional arrival and departures of light aircraft.

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).

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
