Unlike most courses in Ireland, there are neither heather nor sand dunes at Druids Glen, nor much in the way of wind. The course itself is gorgeous, being exquisitely maintained and framed by lovely landscapes. Less than three decades old, the layout has a distinctly American ambience, with not so much bump-and-run as through-the-air play; there is even an analogue of Augusta's Amen Corner from the 12th to the 14th holes (of which the 13th is the standout in terms of aesthetics). Soon after it opened, Druids Glen began attracting the attention of the Irish golf establishment, and the club hosted the Irish Open from 1996-1999 and in 2006 the Irish PGA. Of special note is the lovely period clubhouse, which has been painstakingly restored, and resembles nothing so much as a mansion transplanted from the London suburbs; needless to say, the service is excellent, as are the facilities in general.
