Where2Golf says: 

Ladybank Golf Club: Lovely Ladybank - one of Scotland's lesser known gems, and located only a few miles from St Andrews. Laid out over a fairly flat area of wooded heathland, the fairways are either tree-lined or heather-lined, and quite often both. From the tee many of the fairways will look uncomfortably tight, with the trees, heather and solid bunkering all conspiring to create a narrowing effect - accuracy versus length will be at a premium if you want to record a good score. There are many excellent holes, not least the long par-4 14th (462 yards from the tips), which kicks-off the demanding closing stretch of five consecutive par-4 holes. Ladybank is always well maintained and a pleasure to play.

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.
