Where2Golf says: 

Kaikoura Golf Club: Tall pines and some newer plantings line many of the fairways on this easy-going, well-maintained and relatively uncomplicated golf course just outside the popular holiday town of Kaikoura. The Kaikoura Range of mountains stand proudly in the background, State Highway 1 flanks one side of the course and the sound of the sea is never far away. Without too much bunkering to worry about and limited undulations in the terrain, your concentration will need to be focused on staying within the fairway "tree-line" (the trees are reasonably well-spaced) and hitting the small, firm greens - the only safe way of "getting down in two". With less than 5,600 metres to cover from the men's tees, accuracy can give way to length in your game strategy from the tee. The final hole is a short par-3, played from an elevated tee-box to a green completely surrounded by bunkers front and back and on either side.

Did you know?

Just a few kilometres off the coast of Kaikoura is the Kaikoura Canyon, an incredibly deep ocean trench, which creates a perfect feeding habitat for many ocean mammals such as whales, dolphins and seals. Kaikoura has responded by becoming one of the best places in New Zealand to watch (and swim with) these wonderful sea animals. The Whale Watch experience is very well organised in a fleet of impressive, state-of-the-art boats. Swimming with dolphins and seals is also well catered for, but book early, these activities are very popular. PS : The Rocks restaurant is recommended.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park. Perhaps not as lauded as nearby Little Aston, and Copt Heath, this heathland gem also lays down a really enjoyable test of golf in a wonderfully natural setting. Read more... 
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...
