“Magnificent Golf course – pity about the weather!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

This was the last course our group of about 30 played during our recent visit to Killarney and, unfortunately, the weather was most unkind to us on that day. We went through about five of the fiercest squalls I’ve ever experienced, rendering it almost impossible to keep dry in even the best rain gear and blowing quite a few umbrellas inside out. But, at least it is a parkland course offering some shelter amongst the trees from wind, hail and driving rain.

Despite the weather, the setting was magnificent. We played the Killeen course, which hosted the Irish Open on a number of occasions. The course runs along the lake, which comes into play from early in the round. Our first real test was the par 3 third, where the green juts out into the lake and required driver from the tee to have any chance of reaching the green. Glad to report that I parred this one, but thereafter the weather made things a tad more difficult and we eventually called it a day after 11.

After golf, we were glad to reach the warmth of the clubhouse, enjoy a shower in first class comfort and a nice meal in the bar / restaurant with its fabulous panoramic views of the lake, mountains and golf course.

“Go somewhere else”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Played in Mahony's Point recently, not a good day by any means. While I would allow for poor greens this time of year, these were terrible and so were T boxes and generally playing in muck, they have some nerve charging those green fees. That was not the worst part! when we finished (16 of us) @ 16:30 no food was available, not even a toasted sandwitch.

“Extremely enjoyable round of golf”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Nothing bad can be said here! Simply gorgeous course with a spectacular backdrop! The management was everything you'd expect from a class A course! We would have gladly paid twice as much had we known what to expect! My hat is off to the staff, superb customer service!!!

“Killeen Course is a lovely, soft respite”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The wandering golfer will go home and brag about playing the famous coastal courses, but quiet and beautiful Killeen is a lovely and soft respite from the brutal courses with high winds and tall rough. It is relaxing. But, challenging - two time host of the Irish Open, it is no slouch, but it is kinder and gentler and a nice way to enjoy a day of golf. Pub is excellent food and all staff are friendly (but, it is Ireland, so what's new?).

“Illinois golfer”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Had a great time at the KG&F club for a day away from shopping and touring. Excellent layout, well maintained, good selection of rental clubs, wonderful staff. And, I only lost two balls! So, a great day.
