Where2Golf says: 

St Margaret's Golf & Country Club: Despite its proximity to Dublin International Airport this undulating, parkland course is not that much affected by aircraft noise, so one's concentration can remain on the more immediate hazards - well-placed bunkers, the occasional gorse-lined fairway and plenty of water hazards (courtesy of the River Ward that runs through the course). In fact for most tee-shots there is plenty of room, and the rough is generally quite user-friendly, good for getting societies round in under four-and-a-half hours. But when the occasion demands it, as for the several professional tournaments St Margaret's has hosted, the 6,900 yards can be transformed into something a good deal more intimidating.

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...
