Druids Glen Golf Course
Druids Glen Golf Course has re-opened to visitors.
The famed County Wicklow golf course, named European Golf Resort of the Year in 2005, was designed by Pat Ruddy & Tom Craddock and has undergone extensive upgrades to cement its nickname the ‘Augusta of Europe’.
Now a 7,222-yard par-72 course built to USGA standards, the restoration project involved stripping just over 90,000m2 of topsoil and replacing it. Additionally, the greens required 7,000 tonnes of rootzone, 2,000 tonnes of gravel and 5,000m of drainage. The resort also invested €1.3 million in a modern irrigation system, wall to wall, and upgraded pathways, covering a total of 26,000m2.
The resort, which was originally built in the 16th century as Woodstock House, has a rich history that includes hosting famous musicians and being the site of four Irish Opens - with Colin Montgomerie and Sergio Garcia among the winners. With the renovations, Druids Glen Golf Course is poised to reclaim its place as one of the top golf destinations in Europe.
Seamus Neville, Owner of The Neville Hotel Group, expressed his excitement for the reopening, stating: "We have made a significant financial commitment to the renovation of Druids Glen Golf Course and Clubhouse, with the aim of bringing it to the very top of the list of world-class golf courses. This included rebuilding the greens, which is expected to result in perfect surfaces and modernised tweaks. We believe that the renovations have elevated the resort to a new level, and we can't wait to see the impact they'll have on our guests and the local community."
When you come to play at Druids Glen, you're playing one of the finest, most challenging, and most enjoyable golf courses in Europe - a course good enough to host the most prominent event in Irish golf.
