Where2Golf says: 

The Club at PGA West (Greg Norman course): The most recent addition to PGA West's stable of star-studded courses, is this challenging Greg Norman design, laid out in true desert tradition. Although routed through a residential development, it is natural sandy waste areas, attractively adorned with all manner of desert flora, that lie in wait for anything hit too wayward from the tee.

The housing is barely noticeable as you journey around this excellently presented course. Many holes will feel a bit tight from the tee, as they weave their way through the attractive desert terrain. Around the greens and along many fairways, deep high-lipped dish-shaped bunkers reinforce the course's stylish appearance, while the stunning Santa Rosa mountains provide a wonderful backdrop to many holes.

Water hazards threaten on a handful of holes, especially at three of the par-3s where small lakes dangerously flank one side of the green. The par-3 13th is a fabulously testing combination of length, water, sand and a prodigiously sloping green (as many others are!).

Backing up your straight driving, your approach work and short game will need to be on song. Occasional wash areas cut in front of some greens, while most are defended by smooth run-offs, or thickish grassy rough and plenty of those menacing bunkers. Although far removed from the ocean, this is a golf course where you may well experience a few "shark bites" on your way round.

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...
