Summary Description

The Killeen course is very much the flagship course at the club. The Killarney lakes and high mountain range provide an imposing backdrop to this Championship course. Re-opened in June 2006 the course is slightly longer with faster greens that have been brought closer to the water hazards around the course. At 6593 metres it will challenge long hitters with accuracy being vital as there is water on virtually every hole. Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England's Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners. Nick Faldo on winning The Irish Open in 1991 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.

 

Difficulty Level

This already challenging course has just got tougher with more length added to the course, faster redesigned greens and numerous water hazards. Long accurate shots will be rewarded on this course.
