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.

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...
