Druids Glen Golf Resort, one of the leading golfing venues in Europe, has become the latest big name to join National County Card.
In a major coup for the scheme designed to benefit private members clubs and its members, the 2005 European Golf Resort of the Year has enrolled both its championship courses in the innovative concept.
National County Card (NCC) already features more than 1,100 courses across the world in its growing portfolio, including San Roque, La Manga and PGA de Catalunya in Spain, Oceanico Group’s seven courses in Portugal and two of the most famous venues in America – the Blue Monster at Doral and the Stadium Course at Sawgrass, Florida.
“Druids Glen joined National County Card because it is a scheme targeting golf club members with valid handicaps, who want to visit and experience playing other golf clubs whether they are locals in the area, on a business trip or away on holiday,” said Denis Kane, chief executive of Druids Glen Golf Resort, County Wicklow.
“It costs nothing to join and NCC promote us via their website and e-mails to their cardholders, and it is a way in which Druids Glen and Druids Heath will receive more visitors.
“These type of schemes work well when there are a number of clubs that have joined in the same area. We are looking forward to welcoming many more visiting golfers from Ireland and the UK.”
