Killarney Golf and Fishing Club is home to a couple of outstanding Irish parkland courses. The club is truly blessed to be set in one of the most visually stunning parts of the country. County Kerry is home to a world of amazing natural features, and a large portion of them are in the Killarney area. The mountains, forests and lakes provide an immaculate backdrop for your round of golf.
Killeen is the top tier championship level course, which has hosted the Irish Open on four occasions, most recently in 2011. The fairways are cut tight, with trees supplying a natural border almost all the way down. There is a notable water feature on the majority of holes, and the designs of the holes have been shaped to allow these geographic entities make the course as challenging as possible. Long accurate shots, particularly off the tee, are rewarded on Killeen. The tenth hole features a magnificent par 3, where it is almost as if you are playing on to the lake. The final hole, known as the “Slán Abhaile”, is a beautiful way to end your round, with the trees sheltering you as you putt.
Mahony’s point is a shorter course, and generally it is the one set up for all levels of player. The fairways are wide with greens that are long and flat, but you will have to avoid the bunkers and hazards to take advantage of these. There are some wondrous lakeside scenes along the way. The red deer and vast variety of birds will be around to guide you on your way.
