Domburgsche Golfclub: Genuine seaside links golf courses are few and far between in continental Europe. Located on the "former" island of Walcheren in the mouth of the River Scheldt estuary, the 9-hole Domburgsche should certainly be included in any list of "true" links golf courses.
Established in 1914, this classic seaside links shelters down behind a line of sand dunes. A few of the tee-boxes and greens provide views onto a spectacular beach and across the North Sea. Although World War II took its toll on the course at that time, several bomb craters dotted around the course were opportunely converted into grass bunkers, and are still much in evidence today.
The greens here are generally fast and maintained in good condition, thanks to both the greenkeepers and the mixed weather – a lot of sun, a little rain and plenty of salty air carried along on those North Sea breezes.
Given the natural drainage of the dunes, this popular and pleasantly challenging course remains playable throughout the year. Originally designed by golf professional E.C. "Charles" Warren, in the early-1900s Domburgsche provided a unique golfing opportunity for both local residents and the many tourists who visited the area. ... as it still does to this day!
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
