" /> Druids Glen Golf Resort consists of Druids Glen Golf Course, Druids Heath Golf Course, Woodstock House and the Druids Glen Resort hotel. The Resort is ideally located just 30 minutes south of Dublin in County Wicklow, known as the Garden of Ireland. Originally the Woodstock Estate, which dates back to 1600, when it formed part of Sir Thomas Wentworth's landholding. Woodstock House, the clubhouse at Druids Glen, was built in 1770.

Known as "the Augusta of Europe", the parkland Druids Glen golf course, designed by Pat Ruddy & Tom Craddock, opened in 1995 and was the Home of the Irish Open in 1996, '97, '98 and '99, with Colin Montgomerie winning twice, before losing a playoff to David Carter in 1998. In 1999, Sergio Garcia won his first professional tournament worldwide with a dramatic Irish Open victory at Druids Glen.

The Druids Glen Resort hotel opened in 2002 shortly followed by the creation of the sensational Druids Heath championship course, which opened for play in September 2003, achieving the objective of Druids Glen becoming one of the World's Finest Golf Resorts.

Described as "Nature's Gift to Golf", Druids Heath is situated on a unique piece of land that provides golfers with spectacular views of Mountains, Sea and Irish Countryside. Druids Heath is true to the history of the great game and a complete contrast in design to the parkland Druids Glen course.

The variety of exciting challenges and the spectacular setting produce an unforgettable golfing experience on this unique and thrilling golf course which combines links, heathland and parkland golf.

Druids Heath is a challenging golf course, ready to provide the ultimate examination to the World's most accomplished players. The course has already played host to reigning U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, Darren Clarke, Sam Torrance, Ian Poulter, Paul McGinley and many other leading Tour Professionals.

In recognition of the magnificent development of the Resort, from Druids Glen to Druids Heath and the Druids Glen Marriott Hotel, the ultimate golf industry award of "European Golf Resort of the Year" was bestowed on Druids Glen Golf Resort in 2005, by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators IAGTO.
