Where2Golf says: 

Rowallan Castle Golf Club: Located between the City of Glasgow and Ayrshire's spectacular "golf coast", Rowallan Castle is the first layout in Scotland to be designed by Colin Montgomerie. Although construction of the course began in 2005, with an intended opening in 2008, the course eventually opened in 2010. The 18-hole rolling parkland, championship golf course will in time be complemented by a luxury hotel and residential development. Located near Kilmarnock, 30 minutes drive south west of Glasgow, the site is set within a 600-acre Scottish country estate, complete with 1000-year-old yew trees, trout streams, two spectacular castles, and distant views of Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran.

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.
