Where2Golf says: 

Kingussie Golf Club: The Cairngorm mountains in the Scottish Highlands can boast one or two thoroughly interesting, gloriously scenic and challenging golf courses - Kingussie is one of them. The name Kingussie comes from the Gaelic term meaning "Head of the Pinewood", and true to form the golf course emerges from pinewoods and onto the early slopes of the Monadhliath mountains, which lie to Kingussie's north. This predominantly hill type course will perhaps be unlike anything you've experienced before, unless you are well acquainted with moorland golf. Small birch and pine trees, copious amounts of heather and longer grass lie in wait for shots that are seriously offline, although generally there is sufficient space to work the ball from the tee-boxes onto the undulating fairways. The mountain scenery may well supply your most abiding memories of playing at Kingussie, a golf course that's been successfully established on rugged terrain, and one that will adequately test all aspects of your game.

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.

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...
