Where2Golf says: 

Ballater Golf Club: On the edge of the Cairngorm mountains in the Scottish Highlands, the golf course at Ballater is laid out alongside the banks of the River Dee. This part-open, part-wooded course provides a fine test for golfers of all levels, and is a favourite with local and visiting golfers alike. The well-maintained fairways and greens are arranged over gently undulating terrain, more in-keeping with its riverside location, than reflecting the steeper contours of the picturesque wooded hills beyond the course.

Located in fashionable Royal Deeside, Darroch Learg boasts a wonderful vantage point above Ballater, on the slopes of Craigendarroch, the rocky 'Hill of Oaks' which creates such a fine backdrop to the village. The house was built in 1888 as a country residence; it still retains the ambience and relaxing informality which makes you feel like a house guest in a private mansion.

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.

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...
