Where2Golf says: 

Woodbrook Golf Club: Although beside the sea, Woodbrook is essentially a flat, parkland course, relatively open with small copses of conifers and good bunkering providing definition to many of the holes. A small commuter railway line splits the first four holes (and the 18th) from the rest. Once across on the seaward side of the tracks the uninterrupted ocean views come into their own - and quite stunning they are too, especially as the back-nine progresses and the harbour town of Bray comes into the picture. The mountain views to the east and south, and the high quality of maintenance on the course really make this one of the pleasantest courses to play around Dublin. Perhaps a tad easier to score well on than some of its tougher neighbours, provided that the wind isn't blowing too fiercely and you keep your ball in bounds - there are several opportunities to put it out of bounds !

Did you know?

Woodbrook played a key part in establishing top level professional golf in Ireland; first with the introduction of and hosting the Carrolls International from 1963 to 1975, and then reviving the dormant Irish Open championship in 1975, again with sponsorship from Carrolls. The European Seniors Tour has also visited Woodbrook recently. For more details see Top Golf Tournaments at Woodbrook GC.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
