Where2Golf says: 

Dunbar Golf Club: A stone wall separates the first three holes (and the 18th) from the rest of the course, but that's the only thing to break the uninterrupted sea views you'll enjoy on this excellent links course. For much of the time you're standing on the sea's edge - often trying to cope with whatever wind and weather it throws at you. The layout is characterised by flattish fairways (rather than big sand dunes), along with superb greens, many "hidden" bunkers and an overall high standard of upkeep and presentation. The terrain gets a little more interesting with the blind drive at the par-5 9th, although for the next three holes a cement factory contrasts dramatically with the natural splendour of the sea and the impressive lighthouse. Play at Dunbar and you'll remember those fabulous sea views and the stone wall. You'll probably also wonder at how Old Tom Morris created such a marvellous links golf course on the narrow strip of land between the two.

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).
