Where2Golf says: 

Tiger Point Golf & Country Club: Built alongside the wonderfully scenic Santa Rosa Sound, Tiger Point once featured two adjoining championship courses - after a pounding from hurricanes of the mid-2000s, golf is now available on the East course - the West course is undergoing a gradual restoration, which has seen nine holes brought back into play (as of 2009) - the out-and-back layout of the East course provides the opportunity for many scenic waterfront views, and a chance to test your game against a relatively open, Scottish links-style layout - two testing and water-defended par-3s feature among the first four holes; they will serve as good preparation as you progress to the short par-4 5th, with its water-surrounded island green - Tiger Point exudes a holiday golf feel much of the time, with its frequent views out onto the expansive Sound, and holiday homes and villas flanking several holes - the course becomes a little more tree-lined and housing a bit more noticeable on the 9 thru' 12 loop of holes, before linksy openness and sea breezes come rolling back in at the par-5 13th - maintenance here is good without being immaculate, perhaps unintentionally imbuing a linksy rusticity on parts of the course, not untypical on the average Scottish links - the rough may not be as penal as in Scotland, and no holes rub shoulders with the beach, but water will be a fairly constant companion - plenty of small ponds and water channels run alongside the good-width, flattish, uncontoured fairways and threateningly sidle up to some of the large and sloping 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...
