Did you know?

Poplar Grove's original brick-built plantation home (now the clubhouse) dates back to 1773. An adjoining log cabin is even older, dating back to 1730. | Seven-time major champion Sam Snead rarely got involved in golf course design. Until Poplar Grove there were no "Sam Snead designs" in the golfing world. However, in 2002 he and his son Jack became involved in a project that was targetted at creating an eventual Sam Snead Golf Trail. They worked with Ed Carton, originally of Tom Fazio's design business, and drew-up the plans for Poplar Grove. The course opened for play in 2004, well after Sam Snead's death in May 2002.

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.
