The Course

The Killeen Course at Killarney Golf Club is one of Ireland’s most difficult challenges. Virtually every hole has water hazards and length is required from most tees. The Co. Kerry mountain range can be seen as one of Ireland’s most majestic sites. Home of “The Irish Open” in 1991, 2010, 2011 can only speak for itself. The winners of each Open hosted here were English – Ross Fisher, Simon Dyson, and Sir Nick Faldo. Sir Nick was one of only three players in 1991 to finish under par. The Killeen Course is famous for its par 3 hole, the 10th looking out onto the lake. It was the “Earl of Kenmare” in 1893 that provided the land for this fabulous course. “The Earl” was the local landlord and required 10 shillings per member as annual dues. 1950s Ireland were some very sad times, but when the likes of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope came to play this testing track, things started to look up for the club. Increased numbers lead to the purchase of more land and in 1972, “The Killeen Course” was built. While most love to visit Killarney, Co. Kerry, please go swing your weapons at this breathtaking piece of property.
