Day 2
A masterpiece of a parkland championship course, opened in 1995 and designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. It stretches over 230 acres of the 840-acre Adare Manor estate around the ruins of a 1313 Augustine abbey and a 1464 Franciscan friary. Set amidst mature trees, the course has three lakes, including a 14-acre lake dominating the front nine and features Jones signature clover-leaf bunkers. The Maigue River comes into play on three holes, meandering through the back nine and creating a special challenge, particularly on the par three 11th and the 18th.

Golf Course Adare

Day 3
This magnificent links was the first golf course Arnold Palmer designed in Europe in the early 80s, and he said of it: I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course. I am happy we have one of the world’s great links here. It is a stunning setting, which was used in the filming of Ryan’s Daughter. Bounded by water on tree sides there is a clear view
of the Atlantic Ocean from every hole. The Sliabh Mish mountain range is to the south.

Golf Course Tralee

Day 4
This course is located on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of picturesque Dingle Bay. The word ‘Dooks’ is in fact derived from the Irish for sand-bank ‘dumhac’. This area is one of the most beautiful and tranquil regions of the Ring of Kerry. The course is a reasonably demanding traditional style course.

Golf Course Dooks

Day 5
Killeen course is very much the flagship course at the club.  This beautiful parkland golf course is situated in one of the most scenic areas of Ireland, beside Lough Leane.  The lakes and high mountain range provide an imposing backdrop to this Championship course.  Re-opened in 2006 the course is now slightly longer with faster greens. One of Irelands premier parkland courses.  Home of the Irish Open in 1991/1992 and again 2010/2011.

Day 6
With panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Kerry Mountains, this coastal golf course is favoured by many of the big names in golf, including Tiger Woods. It is one of the oldest Irish clubs, the original nine hole course having been re-designed by Eddie Hackett. The course is long but not hilly. The Kerrygold Classic was held here from 1975 to 1977, when Tony Jacklin was among the
winners.
