Driving Range and Druids Academy
Located adjacent to the 1st Tee at Druids Heath, a mere stroll from the front of the luxurious Druids Glen Hotel, is the Resort driving range and practice ground. A state of the art facility with fully lit driving range, practice putting green and chipping/bunker area. Open daily until 10.00pm.
Overlooking the Irish Sea with beautiful views from Greystones to Wicklow Head, it is said that your game will improve here without having to hit any shots at all! In any case, the covered range, grass bays, bunker and putting greens provide an ideal place to practice your game.
Druids Glen Academy
Druids Glen Academy offers both individual and group instruction with expert guidance from our resident Golf Pro Patrick Geraghty. The academy has all the modern equipment and teaching aids to enhance your game including Putting and Long Game clinics.
Patrick is a rare breed of golf professionals in that he has achieved a PGA qualification, a degree in Psychology and in the 1990s played over 100 professional golf tournaments. Patrick believes his job is in making golf feel simple and fun and keeps his teaching down to a maximum one or two thoughts. He also believes in the art of teaching how to play golf and not just teach the golf swing.
“I am a right-handed golfer but at the start of every teaching season I take a club and hit shots left handed to see how some of my beginner students feel, it’s fun but difficult!”
