Druids Glen is a golf resort in Newtownmountkennedy, Ireland, situated about 35 kilometres (22 mi) south of Dublin in County Wicklow. The resort consists of the 5-star Druids Glen Hotel & Country Club, two championship golf courses, and Woodstock House, the clubhouse at Druids Glen.

The "Druids Glen Golf Course", (known[by whom?] as the Augusta of Ireland[citation needed]) opened in 1995, was the venue the Irish Open between 1996 and 1999, and the 2002 Seve Trophy. The second course on the site is the "Druids Heath Golf Course", which opened in 2003 and has hosted 'the Irish PGA'. Druids Glen has now been skilfully reconstructed on HB studios The Golf Club Game on PS4, Xbox1 and PC via Steam in 2015.

The 2008 bank guarantee, which cost Ireland its economic independence, was first discussed at a joint golf day in Druids Glen involving the Directors of the Central Bank of Ireland and Anglo Irish Bank.[1]
