Where2Golf says: 

Druids Heath Golf Course: Another of Dublin's double-header venues, where two championship courses combine to test your golfing skills, and Druids Heath like Druids Glen certainly supplies a stern test of those skills. The heathland credentials are authentic with plenty of gorse, occasional rocky outcrops, undulating and mainly open terrain and, unlike most heathland courses, a magnificent sea view to start things off (not the only water you'll see !). This par-71 course is no push over as the SSS of 74 from the white tees indicates. Most nerve wracking are the very slick greens. Many are like up-turned saucers with severe run-offs, which get more and more frustrating as the round goes on and yet again your ball runs off the putting surface after a good approach shot. Some of the fairways are quite tight and almost non-existent at the tricky par-4 13th. Generally the fairways are close to each other so beware of what's happening around you on other holes. This is a long and tough course, but with spectacular sea and mountain views and a great test of your golf, its one you must play on a visit to the Dublin area.

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...
