Waterville Golf Club
Ranked among the Top 25 International Courses, Waterville is truly a mystical Links in the Kingdom of Kerry. It is one of the oldest Irish clubs, having been founded in 1897 with the arrival of the trans-Atlantic telegraph cable from the United States. After 80 years of play, the original nine hole course was redesigned by the famous Irish golf architect, Eddie Hackett and the late owner, John A. Mulcahy. The clubhouse is unique with ocean vistas, golf art, antique memorabilia and the warm ambience of its members.

Beaufort Golf Club
Beaufort Golf Club is set amongst 200 year old trees, a 12th century castle ruin and the lush, rolling hills of Killarney. The course presents magnificent views of the McGillycuddy Reeks mountain range, with generous fairways and large contoured greens. The golf course is amidst the Churchtown Estate, the centrepiece of which is the Georgian house built in 1740. The ruins of Castle Core stand beside the 13th green and it was from here the stone was taken to build the house.

Tralee Golf Course
The championship links course at Tralee, designed by Arnold Palmer is justifiably proud of the reputation it has gathered as a stern challenge to even the most gifted of golfers. It occupies an unrivalled array of tall sea cliffs and sand dunes amidst rugged terrain at the edge of the wild and ever changing Atlantic ocean, which is forever challenging throughout the course. The Sliabh Mish and Brandon mountain ranges provide a panoramic and spectacular background to this very popular course. 

Killarney Golf & Fishing Club
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club is located beside Lough Leane, the largest of the three lakes of Killarney and has panoramic views of the Killarney mountains. Killarney Golf Club is blessed by having three parkland 18-hole championship courses. The inspiring setting of incomparable beauty in the colourful and varied shrubbery throughout the courses, has moved many an overseas golfer to extol it as 'the most enchanting place on Earth'.

Ballybunion Golf Club
Ballybunion situated on the western Atlantic coastline has two separate courses. The Old Course (Par 71, 6,593 yards) and the Cashen Course (Par 72, 6,216 yards), which was created by golf architect, Robert Trent Jones Senior. The Old Course is consistently ranked as one of the world's top ten courses. The legendary Tom Watson described the glorious links at Ballybunion as 'the best in the world, I consider it a true test of golf'. This is a magnificent golf course, which meanders through massive dunes and leaves one with the distinct feeling this course existed here forever on the shores of the Atlantic.

The Old Head of Kinsale
Unrivalled in terms of the magnificent beauty and setting of the site, Old Head Golf Links continues to take the golfing world by storm. The brainchild of John and Patrick O’Connor, the Club has developed into one of the most recognised and sought after golf experiences anywhere on earth.
