Druids Glen Golf Club in Covington, Washington has been named one of the 10 most difficult courses in Washington. Located just an hour south of Seattle, it's one of the area's most popular courses. The championship layout plays to a lengthy 7,146 yards from the back tees. The landscape is the epitome of the dramatic terrain that the Pacific Northwest is known for. Mount Rainier even serves as the backdrop for the course. The layout is a challenging test with rolling fairways and undulating greens framed by mature trees. There are more than 60 strategically placed bunkers throughout and numerous water hazards come into play. Druids Glen Golf Club's hilly terrain provides a variety of elevation changes that will test your accuracy and be prepared to face sidehill, uphill, and downhill lies.

Booked a round on GolfNow to play Druids. Have played here many other times through the ups and downs of the courses history. Sure enough, showed-up to pay for my and my partner’s round and the guy in the pro shop told me that the greens were punched the day before. I was never contacted by GolfNow and it wasn’t on GolfNow’s site that they punched the greens. The guy gave me a cart for free but still don’t feel satisfied paying $85 for two round and med bucket of balls. Half of the pins were on temporary greens which was also not explained to me. I want to think I still have hope for this course, but every time I am disappointed.

A very disappointing experience at Druids yesterday. It took my group 1 hour to play the first 2 holes. I called the clubhouse and asked for a marshall to speed up play. They said they would send someone out but I never saw anyone. By the time we got to the 4th hole I could see things were not going to improve so I called the clubhouse and asked if my son and I could get a voucher to come back another time. I was told that this could not happen and that was the way it was. I was taken aback of the poor customer service that was put on display on this Sunday. After all was said and done we stuck it out the rest of the day which took us over 6 hours to play 18 holes. I will not be going back to the course in the future.

Word is an ownership change and some grounds crew issues a few years back forced something of a decline in the course. You could see glimpses of greatness from a design standpoint, but too much burnt out grass, spotty fairways and empty water hazards caused some disappointment. Still, it's always fun to visit new courses when traveling. If only my play was anywhere close to as good as the Foo Fighters' performance Saturday night at Safeco Field.

Course has still not recovered from a really bad summer two years ago. Most of the fairways are very thin. Greens range from good (#18) to sad. This is the reason why its cheap and easy to book.

The course has a interesting layout, but you really need a golf cart. Its not a walking friendly. It played really slow for a midweek twilight round. They did have a beverage cart!

Don't expect to get off this course under 5 hours if you are lucky. The staff and players are oblivious to slow play.

The way this course is run is why less people play golf. They should be embarrassed by this slow play and circumstance.

Played on a Golfnow booking. Unfortunately, Druids also ran a men's club event and we were pushed to start on the back nine and couldn't even play on the front nine.

The only thing I would say is we could walk on and get a slightly better price. Mon-Fri 32.00 with a cart till 8:00 so we actually paid slightly more. They're rentals were very good for a public course. 50.00 but Nike in good condition. worth it as I didn't have to pay baggage and haul them from N.D Overall a good day of golf for My son and I
