Where2Golf says: 

Rosendaelsche Golfclub: There is a very special quality about this venerable old course. One excellent hole after another reaches into an expansive area of gently undulating wooded heathland. Beech, birch and pine trees, as well as abundance of heather have flourished here for many generations; now they line the good-width fairways at one of the Netherlands' oldest and best golf courses.

On this superb layout the bunkering is intentionally light, but there's no problem with that. The tree-lined contoured holes and subtle slopes of the greens have enough defences to ensure you don't run off with the course record. Heather topped ridges sometimes create semi-blind shots from the tee, as well as blind approaches to a few greens.

On the more undulating and at times narrower back-nine, you'll encounter some of the finest tree-lined heathland golf holes in the Netherlands. Among the standard bearers are holes like the straight, tight and long par-4 14th and the equally impressive par-5 15th. The downhill par-3 16th is another gem.

Traffic noise from the neighbouring A50 motorway occasionally intrudes on the quiet splendour of this part of the Valkenhuizen forest. But nothing can really detract from the excellence of the golf course itself.
