Not a course you will rush back to.

Firstly it's not clear you need tokens for the Driving Range and then it's a very long walk back to clubhouse to get them. This happened to us and so it was a bad start.
Course itself is very long and you need to drive it well. There is a bunker in play on every single shot until you reach the green.
Greens are in very good condition but flags cant be tricky on some holes. Helps if you play with somebody that has played there before and can help guide you a around. We played in very good weather with no wind and it was still a tough test. Easy to lose some golf balls in the dirches around the greens.
Overall its an average course & not one you would go rushing back to play again in a hurry. (Review by 12 handicapper)

Woeful condition

You can forgive some muckiness and disrepair in the winter months, but the general condition was terrible. Holes, random piles of mud, weeds, lopsided tee boxes were all very disappointing. Even compared to the cheaper options in the area such as Bray and Blainroe it isn't even close. Beautiful scenery and fine weather, had a grand day, but clearly a course where the management have stopped caring.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your visit and taking the time to write a review.

I was disappointed to read you felt that the course condition was lacking.

I note you played on January 1st this year. This was during/at the end of what was proven to be the worst run of wet weather in Irish history.

To say that Management have stopped caring is far off the mark. The Resort recently changed ownership to the Neville Hotel Group. A family run, Irish owned businesses.

It is the Neville family’s intention to further enhance our golf reputation by unveiling a significant 2021 investment plan lead by renowned Golf Course Architect, Mr. Peter McEvoy OBE.

We do hope to welcome you back again soon (when the weather improves) and possibly change your opinion about our Golf Course.

Yours sincerely,

Marcus Doyle

Beautiful heathland course

Well maintained beautiful course. Views around for miles!
Course itself played very well and I had a wind that always felt like it was against which added to the experience.

Great condition but expensive buggies

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.

course condition

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.

Links style but not quite

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.

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.

The Heath

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). Staff member was very welcoming and clear re course conditions(pretty wet). Greens on front nine a little rough, improved on the back nine, not there yet(no surprise given the recent weather)

The course itself was very enjoyable. Unfortunately our 3 ball was stuck behind three 4 balls that were playing VERY slow. A Marshal was missing on the course to monitor the pace of play!

Course has more bunkers than the beach but not in middle of fairway

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.
