Where2Golf says: 

Monte-Carlo Golf Club: Located across the border in France rather than in Monte Carlo itself, the Golf Club is perched at 900 metres above sea level, just under the fortress peak of Mont Agel (1,148 metres). Although it's a relatively steep and winding drive up from the town of La Turbie, that doesn't seem to deter the Club's rich and famous members from making the journey. What awaits is a well-laid out course, an elegant and comfortable clubhouse and stunning scenery.

The views onto the Mediterranean, along the French and Italian Rivieras and inland to the mighty Alps will brighten up any round of golf at "Mont Agel", no matter how your swing is performing. Willie Park Jr's original design has stood the test of time, creating an enjoyable and playable course that includes plenty of elevation change, undulating fairways and "clear to see" golfing challenges. Awkward blind shots are rare, although inevitably there are one or two. Excellent quality greens are stoutly defended by good bunkering, while the well-groomed fairways usually provide enough room for manoeuvre, but do tighten-up on some holes.

Within the layout's natural parkland environment, there are some slopes to climb, but it would be wrong to call this a "mountain" course. The back-nine arguably contains the best holes, especially as you move into more open terrain at the tumbling par-4 13th. A long and gradual climb back up to the clubhouse starts at the par-4 15th, all the while accompanied by some of the most stunning sea and mountain views you'll experience from any golf course.

Did you know?

The Principality of Monaco, the second smallest country in the world (only the Vatican City is smaller), has been ruled by the House of Grimaldi since 1297. Monaco's sovereignty was officially recognised in the Franco-Monegasque Treaty of 1861. Taking advantage of its beneficial tax regime (income tax is zero !), the majority of Monaco's inhabitants are both wealthy and from foreign countries. Monte Carlo is one of Monaco's administrative areas, known internationally as a playground for the rich and famous, and home to the famous Le Grand Casino. | The fortifications on Mont Agel were originally part of the Alpine extension of France's Maginot Line, a defensive border with Germany and Italy, built prior to the Second World War.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
