Where2Golf says: 

Dancing Rabbit Golf Club (The Azaleas course): Two excellent Tom Fazio-Jerry Pate designed courses await at the wonderfully named Dancing Rabbit Golf Club, part of the Pearl River casino and golf resort. Both layouts are excellently maintained, framed by towering oaks and pines, and both weave their way through pleasantly undulating terrain.

On the Azaleas course, many beautifully crafted holes are given real character by the layout's natural elevation changes. Plenty of stylish sand-faced bunkers define the fairways and protect the greens, while the riotous bloom of the azaleas provides wonderful splashes of colour, especially in April. Comparisons with Augusta National have oft' been made.

Although several elevated tees give you a good view of the hole ahead, some fairways will feel a tad tighter than on the companion Oaks course. Rarely are they too tight to be unfair. If you do stray too far offline, your ball should be findable, most likely sitting under the trees on the pine straw. However, you'll need to be mindful of some less forgiving thicker vegetation and grassy creeks, which also occasionally come into play.

Located in a natural woodland environment, without a road or house in sight, Dancing Rabbit's two courses provide a top-quality golf experience. As a fully integrated resort, there's always the chance to win back your green fee (and more!) at the resort's gaming tables. The Azaleas course, built two years before The Oaks, is predominantly reserved for members and resort guests.

Stay & Play at Dancing Rabbit, the Silverstar Hotel & Casino offers on-site accommodation (see Where2Stay section below).

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...
