Killeen Course - Par 72 - 7,121 Yards

The Killeen course is Killarney Golf Club's flagship course and is undoubtedly the sterner test. Long hitting and accurate approach play are required and water, both in the form of the Lough Leane - the largest of the Lakes of Killarney - and the many streams running into it.

The Irish Open was held here is 1991 and 1992, and the Curtis Cup was played here in 1996.

Mahony's Point Course - Par 72 - 6,780 Yards

Mahony's Point is a very scenic golf course with some very fine golf holes. Water comes less into play here than on the Killeen course but there are many fine trees and plantations to penalise the wayward stroke.

The final three holes are the most memorable. The 16th is a par-5 that plays downhill towards the Lake with the fairway bisected by a stream that all also catches anyhing to the left off the tee. Longer hitters will have a chance of reaching the large green.

The 17th is a shortish par-4 but the fairway runs alongside the lake back towards the clubhouse. There is no room for error on the right hand side and the left is protected by rough and a line of evergreen trees. The final hole is Mahony's Point most famous, a par-3 of nearly 200 yards that requires a huge carry across the corner of the lake. Gene Sarazen called it "one of the most memorable holes in the world".
