Where2Golf says: 

Methven Golf Club: As one might expect in this popular wintertime ski location, there are many fine mountain views from the golf course, when that is, you are not up against, or under, the many trees that line the fairways. This is a very pleasant parkland course, quite flat except for one or two dips and slopes on a few holes. The many varieties of trees, which include poplars, birch, eucalyptus, willows and even English oak, do a fine job of defining the often tightish fairways, although on occasions newer tree planting is starting to make things unnecessarily tight (as at the par-5 3rd). Thankfully, the back-nine feels a tad more open and forgiving than the front. With several short par-4's and not overly long par-5's, this is a course where keeping the driver in the bag and using something more accurate from the tee may pay handsome dividends on your scorecard. The small greens are, like the rest of the course, very well maintained and a pleasure to putt on.

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...
