10 reviews of Druids Glen Golf Club
Druid's Glen is quite simply one of the most picturesque and enjoyable inland courses in Ireland and it's certainly easy to see why it is commonly referred to as "The Augusta of Ireland". The par 3s in particular are a kaleidoscope of colour and each is as memorable as the last, with the famous 12th hole and its giant Celtic Cross just beneath the tee, being a particular highlight. You won't find a more challenging stroke index 1 than the 13th here either but such is the beauty of the hole, walking off to the 14th tee with a double bogey on the card will be slightly less painful than usual! From the plates the course is a real challenge but with a number of tee positions, golfers of all abilities can surely find the appropiate level of difficulty. Conditioning of the course is also top class so all in all, it's easy to see why this course is so highly thought of and why it has hosted the European Tour's Irish Open on so many occassions. A must play for anyone looking to explore the golfing options in and around Dublin and the surrounding counties.
I visited here on a golf break the week before last and it is a real joy to play. The hotel is excellent and the golf course enjoys the title "Augusta of Ireland" - I have to say it is very pretty and one of my favourites that I've ever played. The hotel is quite modern and of a good 4/5* standard, I felt the drinks were a little pricey but guess this is to be expected at this level of hotel. All the facilities were great although my days of visiting a gym are well beyond me! We paid less than £100 via yourgolftravel.com for 1 night and 2 rounds - check them out they always have some good deals.
Seldom do you find the total package when it comes to a golf holiday...I found it at Druids Glen. Both courses are immaculate and a joy to play...even if you hack the ball around like I did! Of course being in Ireland the staff are all extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome. Wiclow is a gorgeous place as well and I will definately be going back...and hopefully will be playing golf here again because I loved every minute. I booked with yourgolftravel.com and was very pleased with the level of service I recieved...not to mention the deal I got!
Big, wide open course with plenty of interest and some lovely looking holes. Although it rained throughout our round, I don't think this would represent one of the toughest this high handicapper has ever seen. I'd love to have a go at it in better conditions. It is immaculately presented and off-course must be difficult to better.....perhaps the Augusta of Wicklow?
One of my favourite places to be playing golf anywhere, after playing it once I could remember every hole and the stretch of 12-15 are a joy to play. Only weak(ish) hole is the par 5 16th but the rest more than make up for it. The par3 2nd sets up an early challenge deceiving you into thinking the huge green is closer (and easier to hit) that it actually is. I can't wait to return for what will be my forth time!
Fantastic, from the moment we arrived to when we finished in the 19th. The pro was very helpful and told us a few tales. You have to play here,the 12th, 13th, 14th are the best anywhere in the world, and then there is 17 and 18 the whole place is quality.We are booking to go back soon.
The Druids Glen is a golfing experience not to be missed. You will be hard pressed to find a better golf club in Europe, and you can clearly experience exactly why this has been the home of the Irish Open and other world competitions on so many occasions. If it's good enough for Seve, then who can argue? Simply brilliant!
I took advantage of the discount available for playing the course before 8:50am last summer and was the first off on one of those incredible, quiet, windless, sunny days that come around so rarely. The golf course is just pure magic from start to finish. The greens are perfect, perhaps the best I've ever played, and the layout follows the contours of the natural land without the need for any pretentious earth moving and those ubiquitous 'links-style' humps and mounds that dominate the bland courses that are springing up all over the UK and Ireland. I can honestly say that my surroundings brought out the best golf in me, and I have not played nearly as well since. You will love this course. The staff gave us a wonderful welcome, and the course ranger kept popping up from time to time in his buggy to give me tips on how to play certain holes. One lost ball in the drink at the island green seventeenth later and i was forced to admit to him that it was a five iron after all and not a six! I cannot praise the place enough. I tried to go back this year but was dismayed to find no tee times available. Obviously word has got around - no matter, the new course Druids Heath opens in September, and if it's older brother is anything to go by, it will be another rollercoaster ride!
I can't say fairer than that of Pat; I have to agree the course is magnificent; it is one of the most picturesque courses I've ever played - which I hasten to add doesn't necessarily make it easy !! - a definate must if ever visiting the area; you'll be made very welcome by all the staff and is a very memorable day.
The word here is "beautiful." A very demanding golf course, but the lay-out is very fair and scenic. This course is another "Jewel." When in the Dublin area, this is a "must." The staff will make you feel as if you are the only ones playing that day. The 19th hole was great. You don't need a caddie for this course. What you do need is a camera to take back pictures.
