Golfing at Kilkea

Golf Course

Kilkea Golf course has been developed in a magnificent setting, beneath the shadows of a Twelfth Century Castle (the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Ireland). It allows the splendour of the Castle to be viewed from every fairway. In constructing this championship course, the designers have cleverly used the river Greese as a natural hazard flowing through the grounds of the Castle. The combination of this water and a variety of other hazards and interesting greens ensures the golfer playing the course has a considered challenge on this hands. You will encounter the river at almost every hole. Two lakes have also been included in the course design, adding to the overall difficulty of the challenge.

"Nothing really prepares the player for the sudden rush of adrenalin on seeing the short 16th. Quite simply, this is one of the finest par threes one is likely to see anywhere in the golfing world, a hole that would almost certainly decide whether the front-runner in a tournament had the nerve and skill to see the challenge through to a satisfactory conclusion."
