Golf at The K Club
The 5 Star K Club Hotel & Golf Resort is one of the best golf hotels in Ireland and is world famous for golf. When you come to the K Club Hotel in Kildare you are treated to an incredible golfing experience at the luxury Hotel & Golf Resort near Dublin.
Don’t miss your chance to play the home of the 2006 Ryder Cup, 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, and 13 European Opens.
As you would expect our aim is to match and exceed customer expectations both on and off our two magnificent golf courses which are The Ryder Cup Course and The Smurfit Course.
To ensure your visit to The K Club Golf Resort is memorable, the Golf Guest Services Team will organise your tee times, golf lessons, caddies, hired items, corporate gifts, discuss group rates and tailor your needs towards your day to give you the ultimate golf experience.
The Ryder Cup Course
The Arnold Palmer designed Ryder Cup Course is quite simply, one of Europe’s most spectacular courses.
It charms, it entices and invariably, brings out the very best in your game. It is unlikely that you will be asked to tackle the course from the championship tees, but this should in no way diminish the excitement of pitting your wits against Arnold Palmer, for, in a sense, this is precisely what you are about to do.
Ranked regularly in the top 3 parkland golf courses in Ireland, this Arnold Palmer designed golf haven is a must play ‘badge of honour’ that has hosted the top golf players in the world.
The Ryder Cup in 2006, the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open where we saw Rory McIlroy’s European Tour Shot of the Year and 11 European Opens testify the importance of The Ryder Cup Course to European Golf.
The Smurfit Course
The best way to describe the Arnold Palmer designed Smurfit Course at The K Club is that of an inland links course. However, its true attributes do not stop there. The course has many dramatic landscapes with dune style mounding throughout. This assists in making the course into a true Championship Golf Course with many vantage points for spectators to view golf professionals at work.
This course has played host to some of golf’s most exciting moments. Who could forget the excitement of the 2004 Smurfit European Open when Retief Goosen went on to win just two weeks after taking his second US Open title.
Or the closing stages of the 2007 Smurfit European Open, when Colin Montgomerie finally ended his 18-month drought without a trophy and somehow stayed out of the water on the 18th to win the 2007 European Open by just one shot.
