Golf Course/
The K Club - Smurfit

The K Club's Smurfit Course may not be as storied as its Ryder Cup hosting neighbour, but it's equally as challenging and has a reputation as one of Ireland's finest inland courses.

The Smurfit Course is completely different to the Palmer and is often described as an “inland links”, thanks to the dramatic landscaping and dune-style mounding throughout. However, its true attributes do not stop there.

The course has many dramatic elements, easily viewed from the many vantage points throughout. On The Smurfit Course, wild species of plants have been used such as gorse and bracken and have been planted in a highly random fashion, more or less as nature would have intended.

The Smurfit Course is conveniently located just 30 minutes away from the Dublin Airport. The club created four islands within the lakes to promote the establishment of waterfowl.

Also designed by Arnold Palmer, the intention was to create a course that was different to the Ryder Cup course next door, what they achieved was much more than that. They succeeded in creating a truly great, original course.
