The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Oitavos Dunes Golf Links: Originally starting out as Oitavos, now Oitavos Dunes, this relatively recent layout in the Algarve is now rated amongst the best courses in continental Europe. It is also the continent's most westerly golf course, one that provides a top-quality and challenging mix of woodland and links golf holes.

After a tree-lined and testing opening four holes, the next 12 are played in a more open undulating and linksy environment. From the middle section of this out-and-back layout you are afforded wonderful views onto the Atlantic Ocean. If the wind is blowing, this is where your golfing skills will be tested the most.

Three par-3s in four holes on the back-nine is unusual, but among them is the 14th - the signature hole and a truly world-class par-3. In keeping with the best links courses, the greens here are firm and fast, with slopes and borrows designed to outwit the best of putters. The course itself, built on sandy soil, can absorb any amount of water and still remains playable.

Although the green fee is among the more expensive in this area, its well worth digging a little deeper in your pocket and not missing out on the excellent links layout of Oitavos Dunes.

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...
