Where2Golf says: 

Southern Pines Golf Club: Amongst Donald Ross's huge legacy in the Pinehurst area are two wonderful golf courses that could in most respects be described as identical twins. However, whereas the Mid Pines Golf Club has benefited from top-quality grooming and immaculate green-keeping, the Southern Pines layout has a more rugged, slightly forgotten look about it. The layouts of these two not overly long courses are astonishingly similar. The tightly folding and constantly undulating fairways are lined with majestic pines and dogwoods, and lead you to well-bunkered, often small and devilishly tricky greens. Both of the twins can boast excellent greens, but what Southern Pines currently lacks is the same attention to detail and investment in the rest of its set-up and presentation. The layout here bears the hallmarks of a bygone era of golf course design, where the holes are wonderfully crafted, water is rarely in play, the next tee box is never far from the previous green, and the generally tightish holes do not need to be over-powered by 350 yard drives. Southern Pines is an essential part of the Donald Ross trail, a lovely old course, very enjoyable to visit and play, but a course where you wish the presentation could be improved.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
