Old Head Golf Club located 7 miles from Kinsale town is a links Course built on a 220-acre diamond of land. It is a remarkably dramatic piece of Ireland, protruding over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean. From the tips, the course stretches to over 7,000 yards with a minimum of five tees per hole. The 220-acre site of five par 3’s, five par 5’s and eight par 4’s is configured as two returning loops of nine holes. Eight of the holes play directly along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views.
With the ever-changing sea breezes, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and the high handicapper alike. The course has been described as “the most spectacular course on earth” and since its creation in 1997, has become a “must play” for all discerning golfers the world over.
Length: 6,770 yards
Cork Golf Club is a parkland/heathland course, which is located five miles east of Cork City on Little Island and only 30 minutes from Cork International Airport. The course opens with several holes of classic parkland, broad rolling acres of emerald turf studded with stands of ancient trees, rising gently to an escarpment overlooking the River Lee. From there comes an easy descent to two holes hugging the river bank over country rich in gorse and with a distinct touch of heathland.
The final holes are played in an area known as ‘The Park’ and the requirement for accuracy from the tee does not diminish. More intimidation awaits on the elevated 17th tee with out-of-bounds down the left it takes a strong nerve to keep a score going at this hole. At 426 yards the final hole is also demanding – straight and long is the only means of securing a safe par. This course has beauty, variety and challenge in equally generous scoops.
Length: 7,123 yards
Killarney Killeen is one of three parkland courses at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, located 3 miles west of Killarney Town. It is nestled amidst the splendour of the famous Killarney lakes with the spectacular backdrop of the Mcgillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland.
The Killeen Course is the jewel in the crown, offering spectacular lakeside scenery but is the most challenging of the three. It is consistently rated amongst the world’s top courses. At 6564 metres it will challenge long hitters with accuracy being vital as there is water on virtually every hole.
Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England’s Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners.
