Wicklow

The Garden County of Wicklow lies in the Mid East Region of Ireland and it’s one of the twelve counties that comprise the province of Leinster. There are plenty of interesting places to visit in this area, from the Monastic Site at Glendalough Valley in the Wicklow Mountains National Park to the popular seaside towns of Bray and Greystones.

The Golfing Union of Ireland has twenty-seven Wicklow clubs on its books and several of them have hosted the prestigious Irish PGA Championship – played since 1907 and the oldest golf tournament in Ireland – in recent years.

Between 1977 and 1981, Woodbrook held the event six times. Druids Heath was a one-off venue in 2006 and Powerscourt (East) was where Padraig Harrington won his first Irish professional title in 1998. Nine years later, he won three PGA championships in successive years at The European Club to take his overall haul to six – impressive indeed, but still four fewer than the number of titles attained by either Harry Bradshaw (1941-1957) or Christy O’Connor Snr (1958-1978).
