Where2Golf says: 

Salgados Golf Course: Occupying flat terrain with a lagoon on one side and plentiful resort accommodations on the other, the Salgados course is set within a protected natural wildlife reserve. It's fair to say the layout has the open feel and "seaweed smells from Atlantic waves" found on classic British and Irish links courses. But the linksy theme at Salgados ends there.

Rather than hilly sand dunes lining the holes, here at Salgados you'll find neat rows of palm trees defining the flattish fairways, and water, water everywhere. The nearby lagoon ensures there are small lakes, canals and ponds to be negotiated on just about every hole. Sometimes water lurks to your right and to your left, and may need to be crossed before you reach the safety of the greens. The good-size putting surfaces are also usually defended by a bunker or two.

Compensating for all the water that's in play, the course is not overly long at 6650 yards from the tips, and playing out of the fairway bordering semi-rough is not too onerous. Depending on what the elements have in store, "staying dry" on this Robert Muir Graves restyled course always demands straight hitting and good course management. If the wind is blowing across the expansive open terrain, keeping your ball on terra firma becomes a whole lot more challenging!

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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.
