COURSE DESCRIPTIONBuilt by Palmer - Created by Nature. A sensational Arnold Palmer designed links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape, which was described by Peter Dobereiner as being ‘in a different class even to California‘s Monterey Peninsula.‘
Exhilarating golf with cliff top greens and tees offer magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, dingle Peninsula and Kerryhead. Like the terrain the region is steeped in history with St Brendan having been born nearby in 484AD.
The magnificent beach and surrounds featured prominently in the epic film Ryan‘s daughter on the gentler outward nine you will negotiate the 6th, 7th and 8th known locally as Palmer‘s loop. The back nine is a world of extraordinarily wild and massive dunes. The 12th hole is probably the most examining 2nd shot hole in golf where you are faced with a second shot to an elevated green with a deep ravine protecting the green. From the 14th tee there is a breathtaking view of Banna Strand which is renowned in song and story. The downhill par three 16th and the doglegged 17th are two more outstanding holes.
On reaching the sanctuary of the clubhouse you can sit with your friends for a pint and scan the extraordinary golf course you have just played and to which you will want to return time and time again.
“I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf
course. I am happy we have one of the world‘s great links.“ Arnold Palmer
