Killarney Golf Club County Kerry, Ireland – Has Two Courses.
Killeen Course is what we like to think of as our pièce de resistance here at Killarney Golf Club, and there is very good reason for such a grand statement. The backdrop to Killeen is something very special indeed and provides golfers with a spectacle that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. The wonderful lake and mountain views make for a spectacular backdrop to one of the world’s most renowned golf courses.Rory McIlroy, Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell extol the virtues of the dramatic closing holes on the Killeen course.The flagship of Killarney’s two courses, this is truly one of the greatest courses in the country. It will certainly challenge the longest of hitters AT and with water on almost every hole accuracy is essential. Length: 6593 m/7252 yds Par: 72 SSS: 73 Golf has been played in Killarney since 1891
Mahony’s Point Killarney’s second superb course, situated beside the famous Lakes of Killarney, is a good test for golfers of all skill levels. At 6164 metres it is the shortest of the two courses, but with a combination of well undulated greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards, wayward shots may find big trouble.
Tralee Golf Club- Links Course- top rated club Representing the first European design of Arnold Palmer, Tralee Golf Club in southwestern Ireland is one of the most spectacularly beautiful golf courses you will ever encounter. And while beauty often masks certain deficiencies in a golf course, that is certainly not the case with Tralee.
Ballybunnion Golf Club – Old Course top rated links course stunning views it is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless and a course of sharp contours throughout. There appears to be no man- made influence. It looks like a course laid out on land back in the 10th century where there is a wild look to the place with long grass covering the dunes that pitch and roll throughout the course .
The Old Course (Est. 1893)
Length: Blue Tees 6,802 yards / White Tees 6,366 yards / Ladies Tees 5,475
Par: 71 Men / 74 Ladies
Ballybunion the second course – The Cashen Course – Links From the moment that you shoot out of the funnel at the 1st right, up until your final drive over a wasteland, and thence to the magnificent finish of the elevated 18th green, you will have traversed a quite incredible golf course. Many of the green surfaces, traps and contours have been created by nature, no architect could have designed better. There is no more natural a golf hole in the world than the 10th, an outrageously beautiful stretch of God-given terrain but many will consider the 13th to be the most spectacular hole on the course. From the landing area you will be looking at perhaps the most superb green-site that has been conceived. As for the par fives, their length and challenge is matched only by their stunning beauty
Waterville Golf Club- Links golf Described by one enthusiast as ‘The Hope Diamond’ on the Ring of Kerry near Killarney, this course was the dream of Irish American Jack Mulcahy. Designed by Irelands pre-eminent golf architect, Eddie Hackett, Waterville has achieved status as ‘one of the best’ in only 25 years. The 14th and 18th holes were selected by Christy O’Connor in his all-Ireland greatest 18. From the 17th tee you have spectacular views of the course, the bay, the sea and the distant mountains.
