In 1993, Tom Reid, a second generation farmer and his wife Breda, completely changed their way of living. Converting their 1780 period family home into a club House, establishing Glasson Golf & Country Club. They have developed one of the Ireland's finest Golf Courses. Designed by Christie O’Connor Jnr, it has unrivalled views of Lough Ree.

Glasson Golf & Country Club became a great success for the Reid Family. With their new 4 star hotel now complete, it is a success story which is set to continue. It can truly be described as a family business, with every member involved at one time or another.

Fáilte Ireland recently commissioned an American Photographer to visit Ireland’s top five golf courses and Glasson was chosen as one of these. Tom is justifiably proud of this fact, saying that, “We have made a good impression in the Golfing World”.

The Reid Family are optimistic that Glasson Hotel and Golf Club will go from strength to strength. With the new Hotel and the continued interest from domestic and overseas visitors in the Lough Ree Co Westmeath area, a success story such as the Reid’s is an encouragement to those who wish to make the most of their area.
