Where2Golf says: 

Golf de Pornic: The first hole gives the impression of a rather American-style, open and earth-mounded layout, bounded by holiday apartment buildings, all uniformly three stories in height. This description may apply to much of the course, but from the second to the sixth hole (played on the other side of a small road) the character of the course is distinctly different. This is an area of narrow, tree-lined, potential card-wrecking holes, which includes the short par-3 4th where the green is completely obscured by a tall-ish pine tree (how many balls are still in the tree we wonder ?). Back across the road for the 7th, the course re-enters the more open terrain, characterised by its modern layout, where closely interwoven holes are flanked by a few water hazards and excellent bunkering. The greens here are good, but maintenance around them wasn't top-quality when we visited.

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.
