Where2Golf says: 

Coco Beach Golf & Country Club: Located in the Rio Grande area, amongst Puerto Rico's largest concentration of golf courses, Coco Beach (formerly known as Trump International, Puerto Rico) boasts two top-quality layouts. Designed by renowned Tour professional Tom Kite, the 36-holes are split between the International course and the Championship course (on which the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open is hosted).

The quality and attention to detail in Kite's design is clear to see as you tee-off toward the spectacular forested ridge of the El Yunque National Park. Although lacking the significant elevation changes of the International course's front-nine, the Championship layout takes you on an expansive and absorbing journey into a variety of environments. The early holes skirt some of Coco Beach's residential development, with small lakes creating many watery threats should your driving be wayward. The par-4 10th through to the significantly water-protected par-4 13th take you clockwise around a small lake, briefly getting you alongside the ocean at the par-4 12th, which shares a double-green with the 17th hole of the International course.

The final loop from the par-4 14th to the 630 yard par-5 closing hole, is played alongside the access road to the resort hotels, with the ocean also in close attendance, but tucked away behind dense vegetation. From its carpet-like, rippling fairways to the expansive undulating greens and top-quality bunkering, this layout certainly lived up to the Trump image, although perhaps a little less scenically and naturally than its companion, the International course.

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. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
