The Druids Glen Resort boasts two beautiful championship golf courses, the second of which is Druids Heath golf course. The course is located in Newtown Mount Kennedy, a tranquil village around 30 minutes south of Dublin, County Wicklow in Ireland.
Druids Heath golf course was chosen for the Irish PGA Tournament in 2006 and has been played by some of the most talented golfers in the world since first opening in 1995.
Druids Heath was created by Pat Ruddy, a well-known Irish golf course designer, with 18 holes across a mixture of heathland and parkland course with some links course elements, and a par of 71.
Green Fees are very reasonable, costing less than the Druids Glen course, with a small increase during the high season. Top-of-the-range golf clubs, trolleys and buggies can be hired from the club, but it is usually necessary to book in advance.
The club has a range of practice facilities, which include a covered driving range, a three hole short course, a pitching green, a putting green and a chipping green, providing you with the opportunity to prepare for the variety of challenges the course provides.
Golf tuition is frequently available with the onsite pro for individual and group bookings. The club has its own pro shop with an extensive collection of golfing equipment, and male and female locker rooms and changing facilities.
The Druids Glen Resort is home to a lavish hotel with a bar and choice of restaurants within the grounds, as well as a fitness suite, spa, sauna and swimming pool facilities.
The club has something for everyone, catering for everything from weddings to conferences, with a children’s playground and childcare services also available on request.
Wicklow is mostly cloudy with little rain, providing excellent conditions for playing golf. There is plenty to do in the area, such as horse riding, water sports and fishing, as well as being situated close to numerous important heritage sites.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Druids Glen Resort. is the average of 20 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukJust arrived back from a fantastic 2 day stay at the Druids Glen Resort and what a 2 days it was....the weather was fantastic and the Glen course was simply amazing. I have played many great courses in Ireland from the K-Club, to Waterville but this is one I had been looking forward to seeing and it does not fail to deliver. The par 3's - in particular no 8 and 12 - are simply the best I think I've played and the tee-shot and walk down to the fairway from the whites on number 13 will stay with me for a long time. For saying how wet this "summer" has been the course was in fantastic condition and I expressed to the pro that I could not believe how fast the greens were running despite this. In summery this is simply a MUST-PLAY for anyone thats loves playing challenging golf in glorious surroundings...so just about everybody!
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Druids Glen Resort. is the average of 1 ratings obtained from www.todaysgolfer.co.ukWhen a course is dubbed "the Augusta of Europe" you feel it maybe a little too much pressure for a golf course to live upto. In the case of Druids Glen, it's not a problem. From the minute you drive though the gates of the club you feel you are in a special place. Little hints of the golf course that you can see as you arrive are a taster for a magnificent golfing experience. If theres any fault to be made, the Pro Shop is small but the welcome is first class and i was soon out onto the first tee.The course itself is classic mature parkland with fast sloping greens well protected by many bunkers and a number of lakes that are not just for show but slap bang in play. The highlight are the superb set of Par 3's, 3 of which are over water, not for the faint hearted. The 12 is a highlight, tucked away in a corner of the course, a toweing iron is required from a raised tee down to a generous green but it seems to take forever for your ball to land safely over the waiting water. Just when you think your safe after negotiating that hole comes the 13th. A devilishly tough par 4, a tee shot hugging the right side is needed to have any chance of taking on an approach of 200 yards plus over water, a par 5 for us mere mortles really. Monty took 7 here apparently so i was more than happy with my up and down for Bogey! Th speactacular holes just keep coming. 200 yards plus over water to an island green await you at the 17th and the 18th is beautiful but tough at 450 plus into the wind uphill as it was when i played it. I kept my ball dry until my third shot to 18 but by then i was already savouring a superb days golf at a special venue.Make an effort to play this gem of a course in the the beautiful surroundings of County Wicklow, the garden of ireland.
