Where2Golf says: 

Ribagolfe (No. II or Green Course): Don't think that just because it is called Ribagolfe II (alias the Green course) it plays second fiddle to Ribagolfe I (alias the Blue course). Although not as long as the Blue, this is both a delightfully natural course and a tough cookie at the same time. Cork-oaks (and occasionally eucalyptus trees) create some quite tight fairways, where flailing away with the driver may not be your best strategy. Water is only a concern on the par-4 6th and par-5 13th holes, but staying on the short grass and out of the rough will be your main preoccupation - unless that is you are into gathering wild flowers, which you can do in abundance beyond the tightish fairways. Defensive bunkering in front of most greens will often require high-flighted approach play, rather than running the ball in low. Although the surrounding "open" woodland scenery remains constant throughout, every hole is individually sculpted, ensuring a thoroughly interesting and absorbing round from start to finish. There is no question, any first time visit to Ribagolfe should involve playing both courses.

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.
