“Ranked regularly in the top 3 parkland golf courses in Ireland, this Arnold Palmer designed golf haven is a must play ‘badge of honour’ that has hosted the top golf players in the world.”
Founded in 1992, the K Club is situated in Straffan – a small village just 20 miles from Dublin – and is the proud home of the 2006 Ryder Cup, 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, and 13 European Opens. It is also regarded as the country’s most challenging inland layout.
The Palmer North Course at the K Club is set amongst 700 acres of beautiful, green Kildare countryside, and is recognised as the finest parkland golf course in Ireland. It features no weak holes – with the par 5 1st hole offering possible birdies, and a good challenge at the 2nd hole. Other special golf holes include the 4th (Arnold’s Pick), 7th (Michael’s Favourite), 16th (Inis Mor) and 17th (Half Moon)
Simply put – this is one of Europe’s most spectacular courses. Playing here is like pitting your wits against Arnold Palmer himself.

While You're Here
The K Club is conveniently just 30 minutes east of Dublin city centre – with everything the buzzing Irish capital has to offer – from the legendary Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol and Dublin Zoo. A visit to Dublin Castle is well worth it: sitting perched above the River Liffey the Castle dates back to the 13th century. It was built on the site of a Viking settlement and served for centuries as the headquarters of English, and later British, administration in Ireland.
