Golf Course/
Killarney - Killeen

Hugging the shores of Lough Leane, Killarney is blessed not just with world renowned scenery but also with three superb parkland courses all within the one complex. Of the three, perhaps the most famous is the the Killeen, which has benefited hugely from recent renovations.

Killeen is known across the world for having played host to the European Tour's Irish Open in recent years, as well as many other prestigious events in the past.

The Killarney lakes and high mountain range provide an imposing backdrop to this championship course, and at 6,593 metres, it will demand total accuracy from long hitters, as there is water on virtually every hole.

By way of an example, when Nick Faldo won the Irish Open here in 1991, he was one of only three players to finish under par. The challenging golf is matched by the spectacular views with the 10th being a firm favourite where you are playing virtually onto the lake.

Recent renovations and the course's newly added length have made rounds of golf at Killeen even tougher, but veteran golfers will be pleased to know that long shots will be rewarded on this thrilling course.
