Where2Golf says: 

Holyhead Golf Club or Trearddur Bay as it is sometimes known, is home to a links golf course set back a kilometer or so from the sea, on Anglesey's Holy Island. Don't blame designer James Braid for the rocky outcrops, thick gorse bushes, tight fairways, many elevated greens and other "dangerous" features that await - especially on the tougher front nine. Someone had to shape the course to the undulating terraine, and Braid admirably succeeded in doing this. The result is a course rich in character and full of charm, that will provide a fair but stringent examination of your golfing skills, most especially if the wind is blowing (as it often does). Sea and surrounding countryside views are ever-present; maintenance standards are generally excellent and the "no-two-holes-alike" character of the course all combine to weave their golfing spell on the first time visitor.

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.

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...
