Where2Golf says: 

Castleknock Golf & Country Club: Yet another 4-star golf course and hotel arrive in the Dublin area, and like most of the other new additions, Castleknock will not disappoint. This is an enjoyable and solid golf course, very well laid out in open, gently undulating ground, where a scattering of new tree planting is still a long way from maturing. Big hitters will appreciate the good width fairways, but slivers of deepish rough, excellent fairway and greenside bunkering, several water hazards (some hidden in dips in the terrain) and one or two tightish holes will all need some careful course management. The greens are terrific - firm and true, with a double-green to be found across a small lake at the 9th and 18th holes - both of them, unusually, par-3's. Castleknock is not an overly technical or fussy course (apart from the short par-4 in front of Somerton House and a severely dog-legging par-5 over water); it is, however, a really good, open layout in a very pleasant rural setting - with some distant mountain views into the bargain as well.

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.
