K Club Palmer Course
The Palmer Ryder Cup Course is quite simply, one of Europe’s most spectacular courses.
It charms, it entices and invariably, brings out the very best in your game. It is unlikely that you will be asked to tackle the course from the championship tees, but this should in no way diminish the excitement of pitting your wits against Arnold Palmer, for, in a sense, this is precisely what you are about to do.
Ranked regularly in the top 3 parkland golf courses in Ireland, this Palmer designed golf haven is a must play ‘badge of honour’ that has hosted the top golf players in the world. The Ryder Cup in 2006 and 11 European Opens testify the importance of The Palmer Ryder Cup Course to European Golf. Offering 18 of the most exciting and dramatic holes in Europe, The Palmer Ryder Cup Course promises to entice and challenge even the most avid of golfers. At every turn, fairway, cascading water feature or leafy, verdant space, a challenge ensues. The 7,350 yards Ryder Cup course is set around the River Liffey which flows through the 550 acre lush Kildare estate. Mature indigenous Irish trees carve their way around the fairways allowing the golfer to test their game in all aspects. The walk through the course is a true joy, a myriad of landmarks can be spotted throughout, adding interest and surprises at every stage, a quaint 19th Century iron bridge at the 16th provides players with a safe passage to an emerald island which is hugged by two watery arms of the River Liffey, while the ruins of an ancient church can be spotted as you approach the 13th. The island 16th, moon shaped 17th and dog leg par five 18th, are the most wonderful finishing golf holes that you will experience and have left a lasting impression with golfers worldwide.
