Where2Golf says: 

Durban Country Club (Beachwood course): Located about 8 km further north from the top-rated Durban Country Club, the Beachwood course was built on indigenous woodland around a mangrove swamp (the mangrove swamp is believed to be one of the last of its kind on the KwaZulu-Natal coast). The layout benefits from the same excellent quality of presentation and pleasantly undulating terrain as its more renowned "parent". The course has also benefitted from a Gary Player redesign in the mid-1990's, adding many stylish fairway and greenside bunkers, as well as several nicely elevated tees. Bordered by thick coastal vegetation on its seaward side, many excellent holes have been created on this fairly narrow strip of coastal terrain. The landward side is flanked by a small ridge, on which several large luxury homes look down on the course, while the mangrove swamp mainly appears on the front-nine at the southern end of the course. There are several tight drives to be threaded between the bushes, small trees and mangroves, not least at the 3rd and 4th holes, two short, back-to-back par-5's. At times the course presents a more open feel, particularly on the closing stretch. Although the sea is just a short pitch shot away from many holes, it mostly remains hidden behind the vegetation lining the course. Mixed in with the wonderful array of birdlife, don't be surprised to hear occasional light aircraft and helicopters overhead; the fairways here are on the final approach into the local Virginia aerodrome.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
