The beautiful Druids Glen Golf Resort is situated just twenty miles south of Dublin on the East Coast of Ireland, in County Wicklow, “the Garden of Ireland”. The two championship golf courses at Druids Glen Resort allow golfing guests to enjoy varied play over equally exhilarating landscapes. Both courses are renowned as being amongst the finest, most challenging and most enjoyable in Europe, to the extent that Druids Glen Resort was voted European Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) in 2005
The sensational Druids Heath championship golf course, designed by Pat Ruddy, opened in 2003 and was very soon described as ‘Nature’s gift to golf’ by golfing media. This heathland course with strong links influences weaves its way around quarries, trees, gorse, lakes and pot bunkers, all with a backdrop of mountains, sea and rolling Irish countryside.
Venue for the 2006 Irish PGA Championship, Druids Heath has played host to many leading Tour Players including double US Open Champion Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, Darren Clarke and Ian Poulter. With the front nine overlooking the Irish Sea and the back nine nestled in the Wicklow Mountains, it has one of the world’s longest Par 3s, and the constant sea breeze calls for shot-making skills and imagination from any golfer.
The unique design provides a thrilling and exciting challenge in keeping with the history and traditions of the game. In the words of Course Architect Pat Ruddy: “Dull would he be of soul who would allow a few stray golf shots spoil a day in such a blessed spot!”
