    Nice course all the holes bar the stroke index 1 10th (I think) and the last three holes were memorable. The 10th appears to be out of place on this course and stuck in because they had no room for another.
    Favourite hole was the par 4 2nd hitting over water
    Value for money? At £75 euros definately not

    I played the course last year and what a course. A superb test of golf. Unfortunately I could not play it from the back tees, but the course is still a wonderful test of every club in your bag.
    People a very friendly and there exists a real professional and warm spirit around the club and the course.
    All I can say is - try it !!

    I played Druids Glen course twice during the 1st week of November 2000 with 2 friends. One of them is handicap 2 golfer and played many different courses in Europe (including St.Andrews, and others in France) and North America (we are from Canada). He has competed in amateur level as well in Montreal, Canada.
    After the round he said the course is one of the best he has played. He enjoyed the course so much that we played again 3 days later.
    If I get a chance to go back to Ireland Druids Glen will be the course I will play again.
    Memorable holes : 4th (slight dog-leg right), 8th, 12th, 13th, 17th and 18th.

    We played Druids Glen the day following our mauling at the K-Club and by comparison this course is easy. Still lots of water and a completely different character to the immaculate K-club but v.v. pretty. Highlights are around the turn, holes 8 and 9 and 12 and 13, which cut through 'the Glen'. The 13th Stroke index 1, is possibly, the hardest most spectacular hole I've ever played. From an elevated tee, you drive onto a fairway that doglegs right around a cliff. At the base of the cliff there is a river. I hit my best drive of the weekend here, probably more than 300 yards and still had a 5 iron in my hand for the next shot, which is over a lake to a narrow green with 2 trees guarding each side.
    Finishing the hole with the same ball is an achievement. It's a lovely course and we will be returning but the clubhouse has one final treat in store. They served the best pint of Guinness we had all weekend (and we researched this thoroughly).
