Where2Golf says: 

Valle del Este Golf Resort: Often described as "golfing in the desert", Valle del Este is first and foremost a resort, with an excellent and very comfortable four-star hotel and many holiday apartment blocks. Added to the resort is a rather tight and technical, not overly long golf course, where the front-nine weaves its way around the real estate. Thankfully the back-nine is much stronger, has less intrusive housing around the holes and brings into play the attractive dry river bed of the Nuno River. In golfing terms the course requires you to hit straight but not necessarily long; there is little comfort or safety beyond the generally narrow fairways and light rough - deep ravines as well as thick bushes and scrub often lie in wait for anything too wayward. Water hazards also make an occasional appearance, not least at the short par-4 5th hole, where the fairway has been split in two - one half a sliver of short-cut grass, the other a small lake ! Who said golf course designers weren't sadists ! When the housing is not in front of you there are pleasant views onto the surrounding countryside - dry and rugged hills and higher mountains farther afield.

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).
