Killarney Golf and Fishing Club is one of the UK & Ireland's leading golf resorts offering guests 45 glorious championship golf holes designed by 3 of the world's most renowned golf architects. Its location in the heart of South-west Ireland's stunning countryside, the course is an oasis of tranquillity featuring numerous lakes and may be one of the most beautiful places in the world to play golf. Located just one mile away from the vibrant tourist hot spot of Killarney there is plenty to do away with a number of fantastic restaurants and bars which are a great place to carry on from what was sure to be an excellent round of golf in the day.
The Killeen Course is the most established at Killarney, and is a proven tournament host, having welcomed the ladies for the Curtis Cup in 1996, and also the European Tour professionals for the Irish Open in 2010 and 2011. Ross Fisher held of a star-studded line up in 2010 to take the victory, with fellow Englishman Simon Dyson taking the honors in 2011.
This gives an insight into the difficulty of the course, especially in bad weather. Holes like the tough 13th, known locally as the ‘Tiger Hole', have benefited from recent changes to add length, more water hazards and faster, redesigned greens, as part of a strategy to make this beautiful track even more challenging.

Mahony's Point Course
Mahony's Point may be the shortest of Killarney's offerings, but it features some of the most entertaining holes around. The highlight of this experience is the closing stretch, not least the famous final hole, a 200-yard par-3 which demands a monstrous carry over the blue water of Killarney's lakes. These courses together are testament to the fantastic golf, and awe-inspiring beauty that can be experienced on a golf break or tour in Killarney.
