Where2Golf says: 

Although Westport Golf Club was established in 1908, the course itself dates from 1973, which explains the "new feel" particularly on the front nine. In fact the first 10 holes are played in open parkland with small copses of fir trees still a few years from full maturity. The large greens contrast with the rather small bunkers, while water hazards start coming into play from the par-5 7th. The course really comes into its own on the back nine when the holes themselves become more interesting and the views onto Westport Bay are what you would expect from a course on the west coast of Ireland (although the vistas are more estuary-like than full-blooded onto the Atlantic). The par-5 15th is rightly the most celebrated hole on the course - simply stunning, especially at high tide. Ireland's holy mountain, Croagh Patrick, and the wonderful ridge of hills leading to it are an ever- present sight - weather permitting.

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...
