Where2Golf says: 

Tauranga Golf Club: Next to the relatively flat Tauranga race course, is the quite seriously undulating Tauranga golf course - undulating for most of the front-nine at least. Although quite a short course, which starts with two short par-4's (a few others follow later), the quality of upkeep and tree-lined fairways create an excellent impression, and the greens are top notch. The very good downhill dog-legging par-4 3rd and the volcano-like par-3 12th (called the Knoll) both reinforce the championship credentials of the course and ensure it is no pushover. The more undulating and interesting front-nine gives way to a back-nine that is flatter and more in view of the race course - in fact the par-5 13th does a pretty good job of wrapping itself around the outer rail of the racecourse's outward bend. In this popular holiday destination, you may encounter quite a few "holiday" golfers enjoying this pleasant parkland course.

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.
