Where2Golf says: 

Rio Secco Golf Club: This excellent and often dramatic Rees Jones designed golf course guarantees variety. Six holes weave their way through a canyon, six are perched atop a plateau and six run through the bed of a dry river (rio secco in Spanish). Not only is there variety, but also many spectacularly crafted holes and stunning views across Las Vegas, down to the famous Strip and away to the Spring Mountains in the west. The sizable housing around parts of the course is kept well out of harm's way, allowing you to concentrate on hitting the tightish fairways, which are usually bordered by mounding and not overly penal rough. Stray too far offline and you'll discover plenty of small black rocks in the desert terrain, a residue from volcanic activity millions of years ago, and the reason these hills to the south of Las Vegas are called the Black Mountain range. An attractive mix of pot bunkers and more sprawling sand traps will need to be avoided as you journey round this excellent layout. Among many very attractive holes, the par-3 15th and par-4 16th are most definitely Rio Secco's pair of aces. The 15th green nestles in a rocky enclave, a single large open-mouthed bunker awaiting anything hit short and left. The 16th green is impressively surrounded on three sides by rocky cliffs; a hole where nature did most of the work and Rees Jones added the finishing touches. The same could also be said of the par-3 3rd, where a deep canyon must be crossed between tee and green.

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...
