What the club says: The course boasts panoramic views across Kenmare Bay from every hole. One can enjoy these same fantastic views while enjoying a beverage in the clubhouse bar or a delicious meal in Greens Pizzeria & Restaurant. Combine this with the beautiful Kerry mountains as a backdrop, and you have one of the most spectacular settings in Ireland.

After arriving at the elevated clubhouse, the first look back down the mountain reveals a breathtaking scene - the fairways and greens are superbly manicured, the bunkers are well maintained and raked, and you are in for a serious test of Irish golf. By definition, Ring of Kerry is a heathland course, but there are hybrid elements to it. The turf has a links-like firmness. The mounding, contours and rocky clusters on the fairways and in the rough, along with nasty patches of gorse and tall grass (typical of links golf courses), make the layout unusual. Add to that the mountain feel of the place (the only place in all of Ireland that offers the kind of mountain golf similar to that which defines such fine U.S. courses as Cascades in Virginia and Castle Pines in Colorado). From the standpoint of location, design, topography and sheer golfability, this is one of the most unique golf courses in Ireland. The bottom line is that Ring of Kerry is a great golf course. In fact, the golf course may well be the jewel in the crown of architect Eddie Hackett's lifetime of golfing achievements. Despite the fact that it is not a links, it is an example of the very best in new Irish golf-course design. It retains its Irishness, its Celtic temperament and flavor, its distinct character. And while there are American-style heathland courses that are not worth the time of a visitor from the United States, this Irish gem should be on everybody's short list of superior Irish experiences.

Fantastic

Played at the Ring of kerry September 2019. They have made a lot of incredible changes to make the course more playable.
Green's were perfect as usual & the staff are the most friendly of any course we played during our visit.
Restaurant is also superb a must for any golfer.

A fantastic golfing experience in a superb location with majestic scenery. This is Kerry at its best and we got a beautiful day. The value is superb andbthestaff are very friendly and helpful. The only surprise and I suppose in a way disappointment (although it was nice to move quickly) was that there were few others on the course on the Thursday on which we played. I am looking forward to my next game there and if I lived nearby I would join on this fantastic 2013 membership offer.

Can't beat this course for all round value, it is often quiet, they do great deals and the pro shop can't do enough for you. Whenever we go to the West Coast of Ireland this is the first course on the list.

Plus the views are amazing!
