The K Club, founded in 1992, is located in the little village of Straffan about 20 miles west of Dublin.

The K Club provides golfers with an unparalleled golfing experience, with two Arnold Palmer designed courses, both of which have seen considerable investment in recent years.

 

Palmer North Course

Set amongst 700 acres of lush Kildare countryside, the Palmer Course at the K Club is arguably the finest parkland golf course in Ireland which hosted the Ryder Cup in 2006. Ranked regularly in the top three parkland golf courses in Ireland, Palmer North has hosted the top golf players in the world.

It has few if any weak holes and following a realistic birdie opportunity at the par five 1st hole, the sharp doglegging 2nd offers a much more fearsome challenge.

The Palmer South course

The South Course is the newer of the courses at the K-Club and hosted the European Open in 2004. The course is a more open style inland links course with dune-like mounding and several plantations of wild shrubs such as gorse and blackthorn.

Highlights

Palmer North special holes:

  • 4th (Arnold’s Pick)
  • 7th (Michael’s Favourite)
  • 16th (Inis Mor)
  • 17th (Half Moon)

Facilities

K Golf World offers the most current and advanced simulation technology to help you improve your golf game. It is also a great spot to have a good time with friends or family, enjoying drinks and snacks.

Things to do

The K Club is located in Co. Kildare, around 30 minutes east of Dublin city centre. The golf resort is just off the main Dublin to Limerick motorway and the Dublin to Galway motorway. This means you have quick access to Dublin city centre and its many attractions, such as the Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin Zoo or Dublin Castle.

Dublin Castle is the nucleus around which the modern city has developed and formerly housed the offices of the British viceroy of Ireland. Most of this structure, which occupies a ridge overlooking the River Liffey, was completed in the 16th century and later, but parts of it date from early in the 13th century.
