Where2Golf says: 

The Estates Course at PGA National: Located 8 miles west of the main PGA National resort centre (and clubhouse of its four peers), the Estates course is one of the shorter and easier-going of PGA National's five 18-hole layouts. Designed by Karl Litten, the holes weave their way through a quiet residential development, with any housing generally set well back from the course.

At just under 6,700 yards from the tips, the Estates course doesn't play too long. Generous fairways will not overly punish stray tee shots, while the large inviting greens, guarded by relatively shallow bunkering, help to maintain the fun element for high handicappers. But you'll need to be mindful of the layout's small ponds, lakes and canal, which flank many of the holes. These threatening water hazards impose the need for some forced carries onto the greens. In this relatively flat and open environment a few holes could benefit from slightly better definition.

Like its PGA National companion layouts, the Estates course is excellently presented and maintained. The pick of the holes comes on the final watery stretch, with the 16th and 17th played alongside a canal, which provides the course's western perimeter. Between these two par-4s you'll enjoy a pleasant canalside cart drive. A nicely doglegging par-5 brings you back to the clubhouse.

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...
