Where2Golf says: 

Wanaka Golf Club: Slightly contrasting front and back nines make up this very absorbing golf course, perched just above the water sports and ski playground of Wanaka. The feel here is distinctly Alpine. The front nine has the better views over Lake Wanaka (about 1 km away) and the stunning high mountain peaks beyond; it is also more undulating and has a more open feel than the back nine. The back nine, although flatter, and with less lake views, has the more interesting golf holes - mainly played under the shadow of the aptly named Mount Iron. The often small and conspicuously circular greens are very good quality, as is the overall standard of greenkeeping. Although bunkering is quite limited and there are no water hazards to speak of, Wanaka will give golfers of all levels a thorough examination - especially so off the back tees.

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...
