Where2Golf says: 

Halmstad Golfklubb (Norra banan/North course): Often referred to as "Tylosand", Halmstad Golf Club is one of Sweden's top Stay&Play venues. In 1967 it was decided to split the original 18-hole layout as part of a project to create two championship courses at Halmstad. The original excellent back-nine was incorporated into the new North course. With the addition of nine new holes designed by Nils Skold (the North's middle section from 5 to 13), the North course quickly developed a reputation as one of the best courses in continental Europe.

The immaculate 110-metre tee box on the North's par-4 opener, leads you into an elegantly sweeping right-to-left dogleg hole, a clear portent of the quality of the golf course that lies ahead. The terrain here is more undulating than on the South course, which arguably provides the biggest difference between the two. The North's huge greens and stylish bunkering culminate in a really excellent closing stretch (integrated from Halmstad's original 18-hole course). Included in these finishing holes is the picture-perfect 16th, a wonderful par-3 framed by tall mature trees, with water to cross in front of the green.

As on the South course, the individual sculpting of each hole through the surrounding pine forest creates a wonderfully natural and tranquil golfing environment. Listen out for waves breaking on the seashore when you play the par-4 17th; the sea's not far away, although you'll not look onto it from the golf course. Tylosand's North course is regularly rated as one of Sweden's top courses - it's certainly one of the most popular (a reasonably priced green fee makes sure of that).

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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...
