Where2Golf says: 

Lost Key Golf Club: This challenging Arnold Palmer layout, located on the Spanish named Perdido Key (in English, Lost Key), weaves its way through a flattish landscape of wetlands and small coastal pines - the destructive hurricanes of the mid-2000s took out many thousands of pine trees that once lined the fairways, leaving a more open golf course than was initially intended - open maybe, but with most holes flanked by wetland areas, small reed-lined ponds and expansive sandy waste areas, you'll still need to keep things straight off the tee, and precise on your approach play - the opening hole sets the scene for the golfing challenges ahead - this long par-5 provides a sample of the nicely mounded, but not overly wide fairways, and hopefully not too close a look at the flanking wetlands - stylish white-sand bunkering extravagantly defends this and many more of the slightly elevated, large and seriously sloping greens - the front-nine has a more natural feel, with three towering condo blocks somewhat dominating the view on the arguably more challenging back-nine - although the Gulf of Mexico is only a few hundred yards away, there are no direct views onto it - the back-nine does offer one or two glimpses of the neighbouring inland lagoon, through which the Florida - Alabama border runs - with its array of wetlands, wealth of bunkering and Palmer's always thoughtful crafting, Lost Key lays down an excellent challenge, and chance to come and explore the lagoons and keys on Florida's most westerly edge.

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.
