Where2Golf says: 

Southland Golf Club: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN APRIL 2018, due to declining membership and financial pressures. There is no clear plan to re-open the course ... and if that remains the case, a little piece of New Zealand's wonderful golfing heritage will have slipped away. Check current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Southland Golf Club at Oreti Sands might be a relatively basic layout, somewhat flat and rather bunkerless, but it thoroughly deserves its place in New Zealand golfing lore. It is after all reputedly the world's most southerly 18-hole golf course (the course at Stanley in the Falkland Islands is much further south, but only 12 holes!).

Latest golf course reviews
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...
