Where2Golf says: 

North Otago Golf Club: A blind drive and four short par-4s get you started on this very pleasant parkland layout, which later will enthral you with its coastal and Pacific Ocean views. The undulating layout, hilly at times, flatter at others, will give your legs a good stretch, commencing with an uphill climb at the par-4 3rd.

Most holes here are relatively open in character, especially those between the par-4 13th and par-4 16th, which run alongside the mighty Pacific Ocean. A liberal scattering of large mature pines and assorted recent plantings can create a more tree-lined feel on several holes. Hitting the small, firm greens is one thing, staying on them is quite another. Tricky slopes and run-offs present an excellent short-game test, while playing from just off the greens can often involve digging your ball out of quite difficult grassy rough. All in all, careful approach work is needed to follow up those straight tee shots.

If your scoring is not quite going to plan, you can just stand back and take in the lovely ocean and countryside views. You might also tune-in to the chatter and twitter of the many finches and other small birds residing in those tall fairway-hugging pines.

Where2Golf latest updates

Courses:

Muirfield: after 273 years, the Honourable Society of Edinburgh Golfers does the honourable thing and opens its doors to women members.
Harbour Town: Hilton Head Island’s No.1 course prepares to host the Heritage Classic (RBC Heritage) for the 49th time.

Tournaments:
Masters Tournament: first major championship of the men’s season ends (as ever) in high drama, and sees its third Spanish winner i.e. Sergio Garcia.
ANA Inspiration: first major of the year, and yet another example of an armchair viewer and shameful rules interpretations trampling on the true spirit of golf.

Who's Who: 
Sergio Garcia: After 74 starts in major championships, and on the late Seve Ballesteros’s 60th birthday, Sergio wins his first major at Augusta National.
Lexi Thompson: deserving winner of a second major championship, but denied by the fiasco finish at the ANA Inspiration.
