Where2Golf says: 

Kawana Hotel (Fuji course): Vying with the course at Hirono Golf Club for the status of No.1 in Japan, Kawana Hotel's Fuji course is another sublime Hugh Alison layout. And, unlike inland Hirono, here you can enjoy the scenic splendour of a fabulous clifftop setting. The hotel-guest-only Fuji course is kept company by an older sibling, the public-access Oshima layout. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.

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).
