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.

Played this course on Sunday morning. It was my first time playing this course and also my first round of the year. All in all, great course. Great layout, maintained well, greens were rolling true (a little less break than you think) and the traps were in nice shape and had a proper amount of sand and no rocks (at least the traps I was in). Staff was friendly, cart girl was cute (bonus) and lunch after the round was delicious.

The only negative thing I can say is about the range. It was 80 and sunny and had been sunny all week leading up to my round, and yet the grass part of the range was closed. I don't know about the rest of you, but hitting off the mats directly before a round does not help me whatsoever, in fact, in tends to weaken my swing. I don't see why they still had the grass part of the range closed.

Besides that, absolute fantastic course and definitely will be back. I am a 9 handicap and shot 80 there (bogeyed 18 =[ ) for my first round of the year. So, not exceptionally challenging.

I have played this golf course many times in the past but I have never seen it in this good of shape. The tees and fairways are cut nicely and there are no bare spots. That course was dry and the ball actually rolled on the fairway. The greens are the best I have ever seen them. Moderately fast but not like glass. The practice green was actually faster than the course. I will definitely be back.

This was my first time playing this course. In comparison to other courses in the area that I have played, the course was very well groomed, greens were good, though obviously fairly recently sanded.

I play from the white tees and felt that the course offers significant challenges that require you to hit the ball accurately and to plan shots. Overall it was a great round and I will defininently play the course again.

I blasted Druids management last year for running adds that said the course was in excellent condition when half the greens were dirt. Fast forward to today and I am happy to say that the greens are 98% back. The course is in the best shape I have seen it in 2-3 years. Great layout that I am happy to put back in the monthly rotation. Now they just need to have the course marshal push the weekend pace below 5 hrs.

I really enjoyed the course on a lovely day. Not knowing the course, I almost walked. Between some holes from green to tee box quite a distance and very happy I took a cart. An hour and a half drive from home, but will play there again.

I made a tee time through golf now to play at druids glen in covington Washington yesterday. There were no warnings whatsoever on the app to let anyone know that only the front nine were open and the greens had just been airefied so none of the greens were playable. This was completely unsatisfactory and I will not be using GolfNow for any reservations in the future.

Having not played this course in over a year due to. Terrible conditions and destroyed greens I was hesitant to play here. However after reading recent reviews that the greens have been fixed I decided to give it another shot since I love the layout and challenging holes.. I was not disappointed ! This course is in the best shape I have seen it and looks like it will be some of the best shape ever this summer for sure .. Excellent job remaking hole number 12 too !

I do not know what happened but the greens, even in the late winter are very nice. last year at this time they were horrible. they fixed some of the bunkers also. They are definitely spending some much needed effort/money on the course. with the length of the course and the dificulty it could host a major local tournment. the layout is that good

Overall the weather was beautiful and the round was great. The greens are in good shape and you can tell they are really working on improving the conditions. I spent a lot of time in the rough that day and it's pretty patchy. Some of the fairways are mushy, but only dealt with one plugged ball. They recently removed a fair amount of trees and I think this is going to help with course conditions. It also makes the course mutch less intimidating visually. I like the changes they are making.
