Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club

The Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club is an 18 hole parkland course that measures 6,814 yards off the back tees. The course is one of the finest in Ireland and is scenically situated between the Macgillycuddy Reeks and Caha mountains overlooking spectacular Kenmare Bay.

Although a parkland course, Ring of Kerry Golf Club plays like a links course - this is due to the fact that when the course was being built they discovered that the area was a bog and as a result 250,000 tonnes of sand were brought in to provide a base for the fairways and greens.

Eddie Hackett's architectural brief was to design a 'world class' golf course that would challenge competent and experienced players from the back tees, yet be playable and enjoyable for the average handicap player from middle and forward teeing areas. The brief also included that the golf course be to a standard capable of hosting professional golf events, both Irish and European.

Modern clubhouse facilities provide a high level of comfort and service.
