Where2Golf says: 

New Forest Golf Resort: Not to miss out on Ireland's ever-booming golf industry, this new parkland layout further reinforces the Midlands as the up-and-coming destination for visiting golfers to Ireland. Also reinforced is Peter McEvoy's reputation for designing fair but challenging golf courses that will delight players of all standards. The New Forest layout, as the name might suggest, certainly contains its fair share of tree-lined golf holes, but there are also some very picturesque open areas in this excellent mixed parkland course. The terrain is gently undulating giving pleasant if not expansive views over surrounding countryside. Very good bunkering combines with several water ditches to ensure your course management skills are appropriately tested, while occasional OB and pockets of deep rough lie in wait for anything seriously wayward off the tee. The closing stretch from the par-4 14th takes you into one of the more open and hillier parts of the course, with some very strong holes to close out the round. Perhaps uniquely in golf, the 9th hole is completely contained within the manor house's former walled-garden, now a delightful walled par-3.

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).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
