Irish Open Courses: Killarney Killeen, Ballybunion Old, Adare plus a free round on Ballybunion Cashen
Killarney Killeen is one of three parkland courses at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, located 3 miles west of Killarney Town. It is nestled amidst the splendour of the famous Killarney lakes with the spectacular backdrop of the Macgillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland. The Killeen Course is the jewel in the crown, offering spectacular lakeside scenery but is the most challenging of the three. It is consistently rated amongst the world’s top courses. At 6564 metres it will challenge long hitters with accuracy being vital as there is water on virtually every hole.
Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England’s Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners.

Ballybunion’s Trent Jones Cashen Course, located along the sweeping, undisturbed shoreline, was founded in 1981 and offers breathtaking views throughout. There is a wild look to the place. Long grass covers the dunes that pitch and roll throughout the course. With its succession of formidable par fives and breathtaking beauty, amply qualifies as one of the world’s masterpieces. Every hole, every hazard and every shot is defined by nature’s infinite presence.
