Royal Porthcawl Golf Club
Had the pleasure of playing this Links course recently. What an absolute gem of a course. View of the sea on every hole. Really nothing to fault about this course. Perfectly maintained fairways, greens and bunkers. What made it extra interesting for me were the dramatic green complexes Royal Porthcawl has. Something I haven't seen too often at Links courses I played. It w…

Golf Château de la Tournette
Welcomed warmly upon arrival at reception. Reception apologized that the course was not in the condition they wanted it to be. A couple of days before Belgium and NL had experienced very heavy rainfall so we were expecting the worst when we started since it's quite a hilly course. But I have to say the course was in good condition considering the circumstances! Yes, there…

Royal Golf Club of Belgium Ravenstein
Great 18 holes golf course near Brussels. It used to be a private course but has opened its doors to greenfee players in recent years. It's one of the oldest courses in Continental Europe and the massive and diverse trees are magnificent. It's not a long course but strategic play off the tee is needed to ensure you don't have trees blocking your next shot(s). Greens are t…

PGA Catalunya Resort
Played the Tour course the day after I played Stadium. Stadium trumps Tour on all aspects but still an excellent course. Tour is shorter and friendlier, so getting close to your hcp is more in reach here. The risk-reward par 5 with water on the right was not my favorite. The closing 18th would fit nicely in Stadium. As mentioned in my previous review, staying at the resor…

4th time I've played the Stadium Course and it doesn't get old. The last time I played was quite a long time ago and the playability has improved greatly. Most times when you don't find the fairway you still find it in the woods on top of the needles. Most of these areas used to be rough resulting in lost balls if I remember correctly. Greens were lightning fast making pu…

West Hill Golf Club
The 2nd W I played on this trip and it delivered on my expectations. Maintenance was sublime, not one thing to fault. Compared to the other W I played (Worplesdon) there were more blind shots. A stroke saver is advised, especially with the small river running through the course. The heather here was quite high in some places, making it difficult to find your ball (or esca…

Worplesdon Golf Club
Played two out of the three W's in Surrey. There is constant discussion on which one is the best but I can only join the discussion if I come back to play the remaining one (Woking). I was simply blown away by this magnificent course. There was only one average tee shot (hole 2) but for the rest it is among the best courses I've ever played. Every hole was jaw droppingly …

New Zealand Golf Club
Entering the clubhouse is as if going back in time 100 years. But in a good way. We were warmly welcomed and even got a small tour when we arrived. The course is very well maintained and the heather alongside many of the fairways was friendly enough to be able to find your ball. Getting back to the fairway did require a modest approach or you would find yourself in more t…

Cuddington Golf Club
Was invited to play this Harry Colt course. When entering the grounds it appeared as though the holes would be very similar with a lot of room on and off the fairways. But looks can be deceiving it turned out. The holes were quite different and although no stress off the tee, strategically placed shots were needed to get close to your hcp. Maintenance was excellent and gr…

St George's Hill Golf Club
I had the pleasure of playing this course with a member on Monday morning. What an absolute gem of a course. Amongst the most beautiful courses I've ever played. Esthetically not a thing to fault, especially with the heather in full bloom. What I love about the course is that there's no stress off the tee. Landing areas are usually quite wide, making it an enjoyable exper…

The International
I was invited by a member to play and we tackled the first 9 holes. What a beautiful course this is with impeccable maintenance. I haven't seen quicker greens in NL so far. The course is quite challenging, especially with the rough. But the true challenge is your approach into the green. Flag hunting is not recommended, because this resulted in having to chip back quite o…

Golfclub Anderstein
Played 9 holes and this time loop C (Heide). Out of the three loops at Anderstein this is the best in my opinion. The heather was in bloom so that was an extra treat. These 9 holes have some wicked challenges for golfers of any level. The 2nd par 5 can be played in various ways but only the brave will be able to reach the green in two. When playing this course do try to p…

I have played Anderstein a couple of times before. Course maintenance and practice facilities are great. Clubhouse and customer service is great too, I felt most welcome. This was the first time I played the A loop and I was expecting a similar experience as the B and C loops which I had played before. Unfortunately this loop wasn't of the same quality as B and C (which a…

Haviksoord Golf Club
2nd time I played here this year. Again, very impressed with the maintenance. Top of the list in NL when it comes to value for money. Some holes require an unorthodox strategy due to the current layout (i.e. the par 5 with a bio hazard after 200 meters). If they could somehow change that the rating would be even higher. Hole 18 is the standout hole for me. One of the most…

Royal Antwerp Golf Club
Had the privilege of playing the Tom Simpson course on a sunny weekend. What a beautiful course. Played from the backtees but the holes were not long. But don't be deceived, strategic placement is needed to be able to score, you if your tee shots are off, you'll have a tough day. The layout of the course is superb. There are several locations where you get a view of the c…

Schaerweijde Golf
Played the 9 holes par 3 course. Distance of the holes range from 70 mtr to 190 mtr, with the finishing hole being a par4 dogleg. Some of the holes are pretty tight, so definitely not easy. The shortest hole and the par 4 stood out for me. I was surprised at the quality of the greens and the rest of the course maintenance. They're doing a great job there.

This was the 1st time I played this course and I was not disappointed. The whole experience (from driving through the entry gate till enjoying drinks on the terrace) was excellent. Staff we very welcoming and after explaining we were there for the first time we even got a small tour. The practice facilities were great and close to the 1st and 10th tee. Grass Tees also ava…

Kempense Golf Club
I used to play this course regularly around 13 years ago as it was close to where I lived at the time. It was definitely one of my favorites then. Returning now after all this time didn't disappoint. Both the clubhouse and the driving range have received a major upgrade. The course maintenance is still great. It's difficult to find this level of greens and fairways in NL …

1st time I visited and I had no idea how big and complete the practice facilities were (biggest in Europe apparently). I was truly impressed. These facilities alone make a it worthwhile to visit. If this were closer to my home I would definitely train here often. Also played the par 34 nine holes course. Holes were of decent quality but fairly straightforward. Unfortunate…

This was the 2nd time I played this beautiful course and it was amazing, just like last time. The facilities are great: huge undulating putting green with the same speed as the greens on the course and the driving range has free balls and grass Tees. Hospitality at De Lage Vuursche is top-notch. Felt very welcome from start to finish and the bites during and after our rou…

Golfpark Wilnis
The first time I played this course and I was pleasantly surprised. The course was challenging and I believe this accounts for each hcp category. Hazards are in the right places so strategic placement is of high importance. I found water hazards more than once. They are also (re)building some parts of some holes and this will improve the experience even more. When we play…

Haviksoord Golf Club
Played this course end of February and I was amazed at the course conditions (winter in NL). Greens were really fast and fairways beautiful. It's a forest course and the trees on either side of the fairways can make this an interesting challenge for any hcp. In my opinion this is one of the best value for money options in NL. I paid only 40 EUR for 18 holes which is excel…

I played this course in the first year after opening and this was the first time I revisited (approximately 10 years later). I played the first 9 holes. As could be expected, the conditions of the course were not at its best. The fairway suffered a lot from the snow and cold, but the greens were still fast and not so damaged. What did surprise me was the pin positions the…

Played this in the summer of 2017, one year before the Ryder cup. As can be expected, the Ryder Cup merchandise was everywhere. The set-up was therefore quite commercial and crowded. But it did give a nice vibe, the whole Ryder Cup ambiance. The course was in great condition. Green were fast and pure, rough was challenging and hazards were in the right places to make this…

Antwoord van Le Golf National — 4 maart 2021

Dear Willem, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your positive feedback about your experience at Le Golf National back in 2017. We are very happy to read that you enjoyed the Ryder Cup atmosphere and foremost, your golf round on the Albatros and the course conditions delivered. Your satisfaction is our best reward. We would be very delighted to welcome you once again at Le Golf National, at some point in the future. With kind regards, Loïc

Staff infomed us that these conditions happen only a couple of times per year so we were truly fortunate. Kingsbarns is still at the top of the list of golf courses I played in the past 20 years. Upon arrival at the car park we were warmly met by staff who ensured a…

I played the Old Course in the spring of 2012. I had seen footage of the golf course so many times, so it was very special to actually play here myself. We attained our greenfees through a ballot which meant the pricing was very reasonable. Especially considering the mint condition the course was in. In my flight a friend had booked a caddy. In hindsight this is something…
