Where2Golf says: 

Golf de la Bretesche: Towering pines and oak trees create tight-ish corridor-like fairways here in the sumptuous woodland setting of the even more sumptuous Chateau de la Bretesche. The Chateau, providing a backdrop for the 9th and 18th holes, is a definitive towers-and-turrets grand chateau, surrounded by a deep and dark moat. All very spectacular ! The golf course is a very pleasant tree-lined affair, which requires precision over power, and which opens out a little, as it nears the Chateau. Beware the large greens, they can be quite quick. Also beware the trade-mark Bill Baker U-shaped hole. Here at La Bretesche it appears as the par-4 8th, and contains far too many degrees of bend for a single par-4.

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...
