Ring Of Kerry

 

 

Ring of KerryThe Ring of Kerry (or Iveragh Peninsula to give it its correct name) is part of the mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor pursuits including golf, watersports, cycling, walking, riding and the very best fishing in freshwater rivers for salmon & trout and at sea for bass, ray, pollack, cod, flounder, wrasse, mullet, mackerel and tuna.

 

The Ring of Kerry has some of the finest beaches in Europe that provide all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday. Above all the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland - see the Iron Age Forts & Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Visitors to Ireland should not miss a trip to the beautiful Ring of Kerry

 

 

 

Golf

Golf in Kerry

The Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club is located amidst the most stunning scenery imaginable in the village of Templenoe, 4 miles from the town of Kenmare on the N70 "Ring of Kerry".. Overlooking beautiful and serene Kenmare Bay with the Kerry mountains providing a wonderful backdrop, the setting is surely one of the best in Ireland.

 

The course itself, 6814 yds from the medal tees, is hilly with dramatic elevation changes and a challenging layout. Lakes abound ready to catch your errant ball, should you be distracted from your shot by the surrounding views. Strictly speaking a Parkland course, it has a definite links feel given its sand-based fairways and greens and its proximity to the bay.

 

Two of ‘The Ring’s’ signature holes lie on the back 9. Hole 13, ‘An Neidin’, is a 200 + yd Par 3 from an elevated tee which provides fabulous views of Kenmare Bay. The green slopes heavily from left to right and is protected by water. Par is a good score for this hole. Hole 14 ‘Tahilla’ is ‘The Ring’s’ number 1 index hole. A long par 4, it requires length and accuracy off the tee. The fairway narrows all the way to the green and is surrounded by trees with a huge bunker in front. On the front 9, hole 5 ‘Moll’s Gap’ is a short par 5, usually into the prevailing head wind. It’s a classic risk/reward 2 shot to an elevated green which is guarded by a steep incline and water.

 

In short, the Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club is a beautifully-designed course set amidst unbelievable scenery, where every hole is memorable.
