The Courses: *
Dooks Golf Club - Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889. The golf links is set out on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle bay. A truly magical location for a stunning golf course, Dooks Golf Links is not as exposed as some Irish courses and features and amazing variety of gorse, heather and wild flowers, the "gentle" wind is never far away and the narrow genuine sandy fairways and well contoured greens offer you a real taste of traditional golf at its very best.
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club - Mahoney's Point - The shortest of Killarney's three courses has
spectacular views of the famous Killarney lakes overlooked by the McGillicuddy Reeks, the highest
mountain range in Ireland. The final three holes are breathtaking as you play towards the lake with
the 18th described as "one of the most memorable holes in Golf", a par three of nearly 200 yards
that requires a huge carry across the corner of the lake. Discover for yourself why the 18th is the
most photographed in the world.
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club - Killeen - The Killeen course is very much the flagship course at the
club. The Killarney lakes and high mountain range provide an imposing backdrop to this
Championship course. Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England's
Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners. The challenging golf is matched by
the spectacular views with the 10th being a firm favorite where you are playing virtually onto the
Tralee Golf Club - Situated on the rugged Atlantic coast of Ireland's south west lies the sensational Arnold Palmer designed Tralee Golf Course, a unique combination of traditional seaside golf links and world famous scenery. The links features towering dunes, undulating fairways, punishing rough and cliff top tees and greens. View the white sandy beaches and the ocean waves breaking across the rocks against a backdrop of the majestic Slieve Mish mountain range running along the Dingle peninsula to the West.
Ballybunion Golf Club – Cashen - Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. & opened in 1982, if the
Cashen Course were anywhere else it would attract far more attention and plaudits than it does.
Although built on similar, stirring terrain to The Old Course, in many ways 'The Cashen' is more
irascible, more spectacular, more flirtatious, more brutal and more unforgiving and more difficult to
tame than her older, more famous sibling. In a strong wind, the Cashen verges on being impossible -
her dunes are higher, her valleys are deeper, her greens more undulating. The links can change
moods unrecognizably from one day to the next.
Ballybunion Golf Club – Old - Consistently ranked one of the world's top golf courses, the Old Course is located on the Shannon estuary. It is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless and a course of sharp contours throughout. The contours will leave you with uphill and downhill and side hill shots. Accuracy is at a premium with most shots taken at small targets with not a lot of room to miss right or left. Once on the greens, there are even more contours to contend with. http://www.ballybuniongolfclub.ie/oldcourse.html
