Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Chiberta: There is an abundance of "old world" linksy charm to much of the course at Chiberta. Together with several oceanside holes, Tom Simpson's design also includes some real touches of masterly craftsmanship.

Two-thirds of the 18-hole course is played in a genuine links setting, complete with sea views, open landscape and (if you are lucky) a modest sea-breeze. The remainder of the course occupies a more tree-lined environment, where the holes are no less inspired. That said, the short par-4 17th is a bit eccentric, with a small pine forest growing up in front of the tee boxes - women may need a pitching wedge to clear the trees.

The slick greens look relatively flat but often contain an array of deceptive slopes and borrows. As long as you keep your ball off the beach and out of the villas dotted around the course, you’ll be in for a real seaside golfing treat at Chiberta.

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...
