DG IRELAND 2023 with Editor, Kevin Markham
Druids Glen closed in 2022, for a multi-million renovation by Peter McEvoy and Jeff Lynch (reGolf).
The work will secure the Glen’s reputation as one of Ireland’s very best
parklands. In terms of colour, rhythm, variety and sheer intrigue there is no Irish course that compares. This is thrilling golf from start to finish, flowing over mature parkland, and the club possesses the best set of par threes on the island (alongside Tralee), with 8 and 12 tucked away in enchanting settings. It is by no means easy – much of the back nine is laced with water – but you’ll face so many thrilling shots it won’t matter one bit. Good luck on the 13th – revered and feared in equal measure.
Expect fireworks when the course re-opens in Spring 2023
The par four 13th is one of the best and toughest holes
in the country. From a dramatic, high tee the fairway
disappears around a cliff-face and beyond a stream.
The long approach has to overcome a lake
What’s in the Bag?
The par threes will absorb you, but you’ll need to
avoid all of the water
