Where2Golf says: 

Bukit Jawi Golf Resort (Hill course): Laid out on pleasantly and continually undulating terrain, Bukit Jawi can boast two excellent, challenging and very absorbing championship layouts. The Hill course, rather than the slightly shorter and more technical Lake course, will encourage big-hitters with its usually good-width fairways, even if six or seven of them require blind, uphill drives from the tee. Good bunkering and a pleasant line of palms (and other tree varieties), ensure every hole benefits from good definition. Among many memorable holes, the excellent downhill par-3 12th is seriously defended by a small lake in front of the green. The long par-3 16th, heading in the opposite direction, also utilises the same lake. Elevation changes and substantive greenside bunkering are bigger factors here than water hazards, although the 9th and 18th holes have threatening water hazards crossing the fairways, both warranting a clear strategy from tee-to-green. If you've navigated your way around the course and putted well on its often elevated, not overly fast greens, prepare yourself for a serious putting challenge at the seemingly innocuous par-4 17th. Your approach shot should factor in a putting surface that shelves steeply from right to left. This is a green that's seen several top golfers struggling to get down in four or more, the "victims" claiming it is too sloping and too unfair ! A recent focus on improved green-keeping and maintenance is showing good results.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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.

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.

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...
