Where2Golf says: 

Golfsociëteit De Lage Vuursche: In a wonderfully wooded part of the Netherlands, the Golf Society of Lage Vuursche has opted for a very open and distinctly American style golf course. Ever-present water hazards, acres of bunkering, significant earth-mounding and often vast, sloping greens have all been expertly and collaboratively designed by two of America's best golf course architects - Kyle Phillips and Robert Trent Jones Jr.

The layout's degree of playing difficulty is high, which ensures all golfers are continually challenged. Plenty of fairway hugging water hazards and an abundance of bunkering creates several tight drives, while also placing a premium on accurate approach work. As pockets of recent tree planting and overall course conditions continue to mature, Lage Vuursche will consolidate its already high reputation as one of the Netherland's best "new" courses.

For a club that charges one of the highest green fees in the country, you should expect something very special and maintenance standards to be exceptional. There is no doubt the modern and challenging layout should be applauded, especially given the flatness of the original terrain.

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.

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...
