The K Club: Ireland

Golf in Ireland

We review The K Club: Ireland Golf and Spa, located in the heart of County Kildare. The K Club: Ireland Golf and Spa Resort is famous for hosting Europe’s record-breaking Ryder Cup triumph in 2006. Set amid 550 acres of country estate, the grounds ooze character, beauty and charm. With lakes filled to the brim with every species of freshwater fish imaginable, you can rest assured that you will always return with a catch.

There are two challenging courses, both designed by Arnold Palmer, who is certainly one of the greatest players in the long history of golf. The Palmer Ryder Cup Course was the scene of the famous 2006 tournament and is often justifiably described as one of Ireland’s most challenging courses.

The Smurfit Course measures 7,300 yards from the championship tees, making it the one of the longest on the European Tour circuit. Its signature hole is the 606-yard seventh, which doubles back on itself and includes endless water hazards, with the green protected on either side by the River Liffey.

Where to Stay

The K Club, Ireland is a five-star hotel and an idyllic retreat, with a spa to relax any aches and pains picked up over the 18 holes. The resort also offers a sublime variety of dining with a choice of three restaurants offering European and Irish cuisine.
