Where2Golf says: 

Druids Glen Golf Club: This very challenging and quite hilly parkland course contains an array of really spectacular holes, where a certain amount of mercurial golfing talent will be needed to score well. There are trees and shrubs of every kind in this enchanted woodland, many of them squeezing the fairways tight and making the landing areas small - if the trees don't do that on some holes, then water hazards will (especially on the back-nine). Keeping your ball in play is a big enough challenge here, add in the changes in elevation and Druids Glen will doubtless give you and your golf game a thorough work out. The island green par-3 17th and the uphill par-4 18th make for a very tough and potentially watery finish - so hang in there until the end and enjoy the splendid 19th hole - a former stately home.

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...
