Mahony’s Point

Mahony’s Point is the shortest of the three courses at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club, owning spectacular views of Killarney’s famous lakes and Ireland’s highest mountain range, the McGillicuddy Reeks. The final three holes are truly spectacular with the 18th described as one of the most memorable holes in Golf. Mahony’s Point is considered to be the most scenic and friendly of the three Killarney courses, presenting an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all standards and the combination of undulating greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards ensure that there is enough danger to spoil a good round.

Killeen

Length: 6593m/ 7252yards Par: 72 SSS: 73
Killeen is the flagship course at Killarney Golf and Fishing Club. Killarney’s famed scenery provides an imposing backdrop to this Championship course. Re-opened in June 2006, the course is slightly longer with faster greens that have been brought closer to the water hazards around the course. It will challenge long hitters and accuracy is vital, as there is water on virtually every hole. This course hosted the Irish Open in 1991, 1992, 2010 and 2011, while it held the Curtis Cup in 1996. The challenging golf is matched by the spectacular views with the 10th being a firm favourite where you are playing virtually onto the lake.

Lackabane

Length: 6474m / 7121 yards Par: 72 SSS: 72
Lackabane is the newest of the three courses at the Killarney Golf and Fishing Club. This parkland course opened officially for play in 2000. Lakes and streams are a feature throughout the course, adding beauty and danger in equal measure. Here the long game is tested to the full. This course is suited to mid to low handicap golfers and is an excellent test of the long game.

Beaufort Golf Club

Length: 6587 yards Par: 71 SSS: 72
This course presents magnificent views of the world renowned MacGillycuddy Reeks from all points. The natural drainage of the site and the exceptionally mild climate of south west Ireland guarantees enjoyable golf throughout the year.

The Ross Golf Club

Length: 6514m Par: 72 9 hole course
Ross Golf Club is a nine-hole 3300 yard course including water and woodland features, and great lush greens. The clubhouse has uninterrupted 180 degree mountain, woodland lake and castle panorama, one of the great vistas of Irish Golf.

Ring of Kerry Golf and Country Club

Length: 6820yards Par: 72
Overlooking Kenmare Bay and the Kerry mountains, this course has a challenging layout with dramatic elevation changes. Plenty of very interesting holes and views make it one of Ireland’s most scenic courses. Strictly speaking it is a parkland course but it has a definite links feel, given its proximity to the bay and its sand based fairways and greens.

Dooks Golf Club

Length: 6500yards Par: 71
Dooks Golf Club was founded in 1889 and is one of the five oldest links courses in Ireland. The charm, atmosphere and superb seaside setting make Dooks a once in a lifetime experience. The course is nearly 6,600 yards from the back tees, but don’t be over ambitious, the course from the white tees, which even though short by modern standards will test every club in the bag and that’s on a calm day.

Waterville Links

Length: 7378 yards Par: 72
Golf at Waterville is a memorable experience – the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, and forever challenged and shaped by the elements. Over 100 years old, links golf combines sand dunes, gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces. Forget the lob wedge, think bump and run and creative shot making.
