Druids Glen Hotel and Golf Resort officially unveiled their newly restored and enhanced golf course and new clubhouse on May 19th, with a charity event for Family Carers Ireland.

The event was attended by legendary golfer and former Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, who cut the ribbon to mark the reopening of the course with the successful charity event not only celebrating the newly renovated course but also raising €10,500 for national charity Family Carers Ireland.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the launch event for the newly restored Druids Glen Golf Course and to support such a worthy cause. This course has always been a special place for me, having won the Irish Open here twice. It’s great to see the investment made to preserve the history and magic of the course while bringing it up to modern standards and I’m excited to see the enhancements that have been made to this already world-class course,” said Montgomerie.


The reimagined course is the result of an almost €10 million investment over the past 16 months, which involved stripping just over 90,000m2 of topsoil and replacing it, the restoration of the greens which required 7,000 tonnes of rootzone, 2,000 tonnes of gravel and 5,000m of drainage. The project also included the installation of a modern irrigation system, wall to wall, and upgraded pathways covering a total of 26,000m2.

The project was led by course designer Peter McEvoy OBE along with John Clarkin of Turfgrass and other notable designers and contractors.

Seamus Neville, Owner of The Neville Hotel Group, expressed his enthusiasm for the charity event and the renovated course, stating: “We are thrilled to be hosting this special event to benefit Family Carers Ireland. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the reopening of Druids Glen Golf Course and Clubhouse and to give back to our community through this worthy cause. We are honoured to have Colin Montgomerie as our special guest, and we know that his presence will make the day even more memorable.”
