Where2Golf says: 

Castlerock Golf Club: Castlerock's Mussenden Links (as opposed to its smaller 9-hole Bann course) is another of those lesser known gems with all the thrills and characteristics of great links golf by the sea. In this case you are at the estuary end of the River Bann as it enters the Atlantic Ocean, and just downstream from another illustrious golf course, Portstewart, which can be seen on the opposite bank. At Castlerock the sand dunes give the course its definition, and lead you through a very natural landscape, along some narrow-ish fairways and onto the excellent greens. Characteristically for top-quality seaside links courses, there are lovely rural and ocean views, impressive holes through good-sized dunes, as well as several flatter sections, wonderful deep revetted bunkering guarding the greens and many elevated tee-boxes. At the village end of the course, the parish church looks down on all this links-land splendour from its lofty perch on a hill. Together with Royal Portrush and Portstewart, Castlerock makes up a triumvirate of excellent links courses just a stones throw from the town of Coleraine.

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. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
