Killiney Golf Course

Killiney Club Crest

Killiney Golf Club was founded in 1903 making it one of the oldest clubs in Dublin. It is, a very mature 9-hole Parkland with different tee boxes an all but the 1st and 10th holes. The fairways are tree lined and bunkers play a big part in defending this relatively short course from the advances of technology, with a Par of 70 the course record still stands at 68.

The course has magnificent views of Dublin Bay and Killiney Bay in particular. If you are not on your game then these views not to be found anywhere else will more than compensate. Combine a good round of golf with the magnificent views and relax and enjoy the 19th and reflect on the day's golf.

History of Killiney

Instituted 1902 affiliated 1904

The founding members and first trustees of Killiney Golf Club were Capt. E. P. Stewart. Mr. George Cashin, and Mr. George E. Steward, who in 1902 had James McKenna, the professional at Carrickmines Golf Club, inspect the proposed course. McKenna pronounced the land suitable and a lease was taken out on the ground. They called a meeting, which was attended by 49 founder members who guaranteed funding for three years. The course was open for play on Easter Monday, 1903, designed by James McKenna.

By 1904, the club had 188 members and 169 lady associates, together with juvenile and temporary members. The war years took its toll on the club and the members were circulated, to the effect, the club would have to close, become a proprietarily concern or increase the subscription to four guineas for ten years. About fifty members responded and the club was saved.

In 1924, the club bought the course, which allowed golf to be played on Sundays. The first Secretary of Killiney Golf Club was Mr. S. Martin who built a house beside the course, so as to give his full attention to the club.
