Playing the Course
Nestled by the banks of the River Liffey, in the charming village of Straffan Co. Kildare, The Kildare Hotel, Spa and Country Club offers you the highest standards of comfort, service and cuisine. Located just 35 minutes from Dublin’s International airport it’s the perfect escape for those looking to marry the idyllic Irish country retreat with the iconic tourist attractions Dublin city has to offer.
Golf at The K Club certainly is a memorable experience. Home to not one but two Arnold Palmer designed courses, The Palmer Ryder Cup Course and The Palmer Smurfit Course – golfers are very much spoilt for choice. The Palmer Ryder Cup course is recognised as one of Europe’s most spectacular courses, both challenging and dramatic, with a layout and design that takes your breath away. Leafy, verdant spaces, mature trees and numerous water hazards create numerous challenges.
K Club, Palmer Ryder Cup Course
Keen golfers can walk in the footsteps of Ryder Cup golfing legends. At every turn, a cascading water feature or lush enclave poses a tough challenge. Could you pit your wits and skill against the golf guru himself, Arnold Palmer?
The Palmer Ryder Cup Course was voted by ‘Golfing Weekly’ as the number one ranked parkland course in Ireland for 2014, and was listed by American broadcasting giant CNN as one of the top ten golf resorts in the world in 2012.
