The K Club Ireland – Golf

The K Club Ireland situated outside the village of Straffan in County Kildare, is a 5 star luxury resort home to two Arnold Palmer designed golf courses.  Located approx 30 minutes drive from Dublin city and having hosted the Ryder Cup and 13 European Opens the K Club is widely recognised as offering two of the finest Parkland courses in Ireland.

The first designed of the 2 courses on offer at The K Club is The Palmer Course, this course enchants and engages the visiting golfer and is considered one of Ireland’s most challenging parklands.

The second course, the K Club Smurfit Course, described distinctively as an inland links course, was designed with the belief in mind that it should be very different to the existing K Club Palmer Course allowing players to have 2 distinct golf experiences at the same resort.

Tips for the K Club Palmer Course, K Club Pro
Hole 15 – Par 4 on the K Club Palmer Course demands accuracy from the tee, and good judgement of the wind for the second shot. Players must appreciate that their second shot is considerably uphill.

Hole 18 – Par 5  on the K Club Palmer Course is a very exciting finishing hole which, which will be set up by a good drive. It will throw up its mixture of eagles, birdies and bogeys to keep the galleries enthralled.
