Killarney Golf Club (Killeen Course)


Munster is the largest province in Ireland, and it has much to offer with many of the best sights in the country. Famous for traditional Irish music, Munster is the heritage hub of Ireland, with Celtic castles and monasteries found throughout the region. The busy town of Killarney, in Co. Kerry is a well known holiday destination with spectacular scenery, ranging from the magnificent Ring of Kerry to MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. Is it any wonder it is such a popular place to stay? Skellig Michael, at the end of the Ring of Kerry, features in the new Star Wars movie adding to the allure of this coastline drive. Farther north lie the famous Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare. The Cliffs are a must-see attraction for all visitors, the outstanding scenery stretching for miles along the coast.>As parkland settings go, Killarney’s Killeen course is hard to beat.

Nestling under the imposing MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, and clinging to the edges of Lough Leane, you will bask in Ireland’s beauty, regardless of whether you’re playing golf. With the second course, Mahony’s Point, alongside, Killarney Golf & Fishing Club is a vibrant, popular and essential addition to Co. Kerry’s world famous links golf offering.

The town of Killarney also happens to be buzzing with bars, restaurants and accommodation.

The Killeen course hosted the Irish Open in 2010 and 2011 (won by Ross Fisher (-18) and Simon Dyson (-15), respectively), and, despite the low scoring, this is a big, muscular course where you need smart strategy as you play between big trees and over surprisingly deceptive and natural terrain. The lakeside holes may well be regarded as the best but it is quality from start to finish, and you’ll be surrounded by deer roaming the fairways all day long.

Our Irish Editor Kevin Markham says:

Favourite Hole:

The par four 18th drives at the clubhouse from a very high tee, which puts the entire hole – ponds and bunkers included – and the scenic beauty on full display.

What’s in the Bag?

With several tight fairways and hard-to-read doglegs, accuracy off the tee is essential.
