Where2Golf says: 

Shark's Tooth Golf Club: This scenic and challenging Greg Norman layout is part of a private members club, which also opens its doors to guests staying at the WaterColor Inn & Resort. Forming the centrepiece of the Wild Heron residential community, the course expansively weaves its way through a wonderfully natural pine-forest, rarely intruded upon by any housing. The front-nine's relatively even terrain has not been overly enhanced by mounding, giving a generally flattish perspective to this outward loop. Lake Powell, one of the largest coastal dune lakes in Florida, provides the setting for the front-nine's signature duo, the long par-3 5th, and the tight and testing par-5 6th. From the tee (and crossing some fairways) you'll need to take-on some testing carries over wetland areas, while beyond the usually good-width fairways, encounters with ever-present live oaks and loblolly pines may well cost you a shot or two en route to the greens. Clusters of white-sand bunkers and sandy waste areas also pose a frequent threat. Around the subtly sloping putting surfaces there's plenty of opportunity to exercise your chipping skills. Smooth run-off areas are more in evidence than clinging rough. On the attractive and more undulating back-nine, the par-5 13th, long par-3 14th and par-4 15th provide another wonderfully scenic stretch of holes, located directly alongside Lake Powell. Closing out your round, the fabulous par-4 18th is played towards the impressive clubhouse, which beautifully frames your approach to the final green.

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.
