Course Description
.
Although Druid’s Glen only opened in 1995, it was the home of the Irish Open, Ireland’s premier golfing event and one of the richest on the European PGA Tour from 1996 to 1999. It has been host to such golfing greats as Ernie Els, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Jose Maria Olazabal, John Daly and was the scene of Sergio Garcia’s first professional tour victory in 1999.

The mystique of the natural setting, coupled with the rich history of the land and picturesque 18 hole course leaves no wonder why Druid's Glen was voted European Golf Course of the year in 2000. Over 7,000 yd's of immaculate golf course awaits the visitor golfer. Steeped in Irish History dating back over 400 years, this course offers some of the most challenging holes of the European Tour, including an island green on 17th hole and a unique Celtic cross on the 12th hole.

Druid’s Glen was the venue of the Seve Ballesteros Trophy in April 2002. A must for any golfer, Druid's opened its second 18 holes in 2003 known as Druid's Heath. I haven't had the pleasure of playing it but by all accounts it is a superb challenge of golf.

Voted the No. 20-ranked golf course in Ireland, by “Golf Digest Ireland” in 2008. Druid's Glen was voted No. 4 Parkland/Inland Course in Ireland by "Backspin" Irelands leading Golf magazine in 2008, the panel comprised of a selection of 52 Professional and amateur golfers throughout Ireland.Druid's Heath was voted Joint No. 39 Parkland/Inland Course in Ireland by "Backspin".
