Greens on the back nine had been pole forked, which is to be expected at this time of year, but otherwise the course was in excellent condition and a real pleasure to play.

On the downside I had reserved a buggy and was charged €40 which is outrageous, particularly on a weekday, and must be the most expensive in the country. Couldn’t believe they were looking for that much.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for visiting us and taking the time to give us a positive review.

Our buggies are priced in line with most clubs in Ireland and are better value than buggy costs on the continent.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Druids Glen Golf Club

we played the course on Sunday 4 Feb 18 it was very very wet, but the greens where good, fairways water lodged.

I have played here a number of time and it is normally very good but with the rain we have had what can you expect.

First pay attention to the course area when booking. I booked druids heath in England not Ireland but called Golf Now the next day and it was quick and easy to get it switched plus got a hot deal. Now about the course we actually played Druids Glen first then Heath right after 36 that day. The Glen is incredible but 75 euros compared to 30 to the Heath. The Heath was a little more windy and set more on the hill which in turn was more hilly then expected. Not quite the links style I was expecting more of a hybrid course of links and American style target with trees, but definitely more open then the Glen. My recommendation would be to play both if you have the time and money but if your more on a budget play the Heath not quite the Glenn but a very nice track.

Good course and test of golf. Always underrated due to its brother Druids Glen, however a much tougher course and worth playing. There are one or two crazy holes on the back 9 which I think are slightly unfair such as index 1 12th and par 5 15th with serious trouble 3-5yrds left of the green. Apart from that a decent course which was in really good condition.

2 ball (14-16 handicaps) 3hrs 55mins for the round, 25/30 mins longer than should have been(nothing major, just caught up with a 3ball + 4ball around the 13th).

Arrived early and hired a buggy. Staff pleasent but no inter action. Have you played here before ? Whats your handicap ? Suggest you play off blue/white/green markers ?Do you need any drinks / water ? Captains prize day on and visitors booked to play at same time ??? Very stop start and ranger tried to push players in Captains on and have us stand aside, even though we were in the middle of fairway, about to take our shoot, having waited 5/8 mins for the players ahead to leave the green ?? Still enjoyed our game and was a plesent sunny day and hope the next time, there is no club competition on.

Positives - tough challenge, some lovely holes, well kept in parts.

Negatives -extremely slow play.a 3 ball playing out of 2 bags ahead of us. People driving around in buggies shouting all over the place. Bunkers not raked and some fairly bare. Condition of parts of course pretty poor.

Ok value. Wouldn't rush back as overall experience was meh.

played the heath for the first time and found it challenging, The condition of the course was excellent, the only down side was slow play which resulted in us not finishing our round along with others, we had phoned the pro shop to inform them of slow play but no response, we left at the 13th as we had three different groups waiting at the same tee box so it was time to call it a day, Dissapointing.
