Known as "the Augusta of Europe", the parkland Druids Glen golf course, designed by Pat Ruddy & Tom Craddock, opened in 1995 and was the Home of the Irish Open in 1996, '97, '98 and '99, with Colin Montgomerie winning twice, before losing a playoff to David Carter in 1998. In 1999, Sergio Garcia won his first professional tournament worldwide with a dramatic Irish Open victory at Druids Glen.

The creation of the sensational Druids Heath championship course, which opened for play in September 2003, has achieved the objective of Druids Glen becoming one of the World's Finest Golf Resorts.
