Where2Golf says: 

Powerscourt Golf Club (East course): In scenery reminiscent of the Perthshire Hills that surround Gleneagles in Scotland, the Powerscourt Estate is home to 36-holes of excellent golf. The East course, like the West, combines a fine mix of undulating holes in a relatively open, and occasionally wooded landscape.

The layout includes copious bunkering, which lends clear definition to the good-width fairways. For those really wayward shots, thick grassy rough awaits. The well-defended greens run fast and true.

Scenic views onto the surrounding Wicklow Hills, the pointed-peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, a glimpse or two of the Irish Sea and the tranquility of the famous Powerscourt Estate all combine to ensure a thoroughly enjoyable setting, whichever of the two courses you play.

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...
