Where2Golf says: 

Grange Golf Club: Situated in the foothills of the Dublin mountains, Grange Golf Club is conveniently located just 15 minutes from Dublin city centre. The course has evolved over the past 100 years and following an expansion in the 1990s now boasts 24 holes. This allows Grange to offer three different layouts with a par of 68 on the original (Love) course, and 72 on the Championship course.

Once you've recovered (or prospered) from the two opening holes (both par-3s if you're playing the par-68 Love course), Grange will open up before you as a very enjoyable parkland course. Some of the original James Braid design is still evident, although much of his work has been substantially modified over the years. In fact, from the 8th to the 16th (Championship course) you are playing holes that are newly constructed and were only opened in 2003. After this section, the wonderful par-5 17th gives you another opportunity to reflect on Braid's masterly design touch.

The layout at Grange is definitely parkland in style, with an abundance of trees of countless varieties. Some "tighten" the fairways to an "intimidating" extent, while others occupy rather "creative" positions ... a tree must be cleared if you are to land your tee-shot on the putting surface at the par-3 4th. Grange is a well regarded and popular parkland layout, not least with the relatively recent addition of new and impressive clubhouse facilities. Well worth a visit.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
