Where2Golf says: 

Hershey Country Club (East course) is one of two 18-hole layouts in the "Hershey Collection". Sitting alongside the highly-regarded East course is the also well-rated, older and shorter West course. Guests staying at the Hotel Hershey or Hershey Lodge enjoy access to both these member-only layouts.

Hershey Country Club's East course is the longest and most challenging in the Hershey collection. Players will enjoy elevated greens, three small lakes, and more than 100 bunkers through which to manoeuvre. This lightly tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. In recent times, many top level tournaments have been hosted on this modern and demanding layout.

A mile away from the Country Club, and open to the public, you'll find the chocolatier's nine-hole Spring Creek course. Until 2013 the collection also included the Hershey Links. This open British-style layout was also operated on a public access basis but shut down in 2013 to make way for student housing.

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...
