Where2Golf says: 

Millbrook Resort: Surrounded by high mountains and tree covered hills on all sides, Millbrook provides one of the very best resort experiences on the golfers' and non-golfers' trail in New Zealand. The golf, just one of many activities, is played on a full-blooded and immaculately maintained championship layout, designed by no less a golfing great than Sir Bob Charles. With outstanding scenery throughout, the course can be easy-going or tough and long - the choice is yours, depending on which tees you select. Resort real estate does come into play on a few holes, but the overall feel is generally that of natural mountain splendour. The good-width fairways are set in a relatively open environment, accompanied by many pot bunkers and water hazards on at least seven of the holes. The superb greens are shaped and sized according to the demands of each hole, some large and slopey, others quite small. When recent tree-planting starts to mature, especially on the flatter back-nine, the course at Millbrook will simply continue to improve beyond the excellent experience that it already offers.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

The Milltown luxury resort occupies what was originally a working farm. The old mill, still with turning waterwheel, is one of several historic buildings on the resort - it is now the Millhouse Restaurant. The use of local schist stone for many of the constructions, and the scattering of old farm machinery here and there, reinforces the resort's historic feel. | Nine new golf holes, the Coronet-nine opened for play in January 2010.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
