Where2Golf says: 

Kungsbacka Golfklubb (Gamla/Old course): Short par-3s open and close proceedings on the Gamla Banan (Old course); in between is a real pot pourri of golf experience. Until the par-4 5th things are pleasantly parkland, but nothing too remarkable. The wind usually freshens at the par-5 6th as you head towards the sea, which can be glimpsed from the tee. From the 6th through to the 11th the terrain remains flat and offers picturesque views along an inlet and out to sea. Things change dramatically at the par-3 13th, where a hilly journey ensues through a craggy and rocky landscape, with the requirement to hit tee shots with pin-point accuracy. Course management combined with local knowledge will assist the building of a good score, so don't expect to set the course record on your first outing (and with a membership that includes Fredrik Jacobsen and Sophie Gustafson, you may be hard pushed to do it on your second or third visit !). Kungsbacka is a very busy golf course and often difficult to get a tee-time - but well worth it if you can.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
