Where2Golf says: 

Shalimar Pointe Country Club: Tucked away in the quiet surroundings of Shalimar on the western shore of Choctawhatchee Bay - Shalimar Pointe is a busy and popular member of the Emerald Coast's burgeoning array of fine golf courses - although the two nine-hole loops weave through a residential development, for most of the time the housing is unobtrusive and set well back - there are many excellently crafted holes, usually lined by a pleasant scattering of oaks and pines - rolling mounds and stylish bunkering also provide good definition to each hole, as well as a challenging array of defences - water hazards take the form of ponds that sit menacingly alongside six of the greens - this well-maintained, fun and challenging layout combines a good array of straight and doglegging holes - a mix of good-width and some tighter holes are flanked by a combination of well crafted bunkers and sandy waste areas, with the Emerald Coast's sandy duneland is in evidence beyond some of the fairways - the subtly-sloping putting surfaces can sometimes present a relatively slim target, requiring accurate approach shots to avoid the awaiting water and/or bunkers - the par-4 12th and par-3 16th are played to an opulently sized double-green - Choctawhatchee Bay is glimpsed on occasions, but alas none of the holes are played directly along its shoreline - arguably the layout's best holes are found on the back-nine, with the excellent, though bunkerless, long par-4 17th bringing you to one of those threateningly water-defended greens.

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.
