K Club Golf Course
Set in 330 acres of prime land in the heart of County Kildare this championship course designed by Arnold Palmer opened in 1991 and is set to host the 2006 Ryder Cup. Palmer has stated on completion of the course “we could draw for 100 years and still not come up with as good a vision”.

Arnold Palmer said of his design thoughts “what I have done is to offer the option of an extremely testing course off the back tees or more modest length off the middle tees, either way I feel I have guaranteed that the player will get enjoyment”. The 7th hole, named Inish More is beauty & the beast, at over 600 yards double dog legging its way towards Straffan House along the River Liffey where the final approach shot on this Par 5 has to be crossed to reach the island green.

When battle is done the retreat to the Kildare Hotel is pure pleasure, the first hotel in Ireland to receive a 5 star A.A. rating and the Byerley Turk restaurant a fitting place to discuss the day's triumphs on the course or the size of the trout that got away.

The course is also home to the European Open each year with past champions such as Darren Clarke & Lee Westwood.
