Lackabane is the newest of the three courses at the Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. This Parkland course opened officially for play in 2000. Lakes and streams are a feature throughout the length and breadth of the course, adding beauty and danger in equal measure. At 6,100 metres off the very back tees the long game will be tested to the full, as competitors in the 2002 Ladies Irish Open and the European Ryder Cup Challenge Tour participants experienced in 2005.
This course is suited to mid to low handicap golfers and is an excellent test of the long game. It is a course that requires thought and rewards good shots. It is a seriously good test of golf with hazards and water features with a good variety of holes. The 3rd is a par 4 of less than 300 yards, while the 7th is a par 5 that stretches to almost 600 yards.
+ fast undulating Greens that can prove every bit as challenging as Augusta National.
