Killarney Mahony's Point Golf Course
There are beautiful places to play golf, there are stunning places to play golf and there is Killarney.
The courses, of which there are two, lie in an incomparable setting, winding around the shores Lough Leane and with purple bulk Kerry mountains reflected clear water Leane, it is impossible to imagine a more perfect place play golf.
Golf has been played in Killarney since 1891: originally on a nine-hole inland course. In the 1930’s golf itself and with a burgeoning tourist industry, became so popular in Killarney, it was thought advisable to expand. So another site was chosen, this time the Western Demesne. The first 18 Holes (Mahony’s Point) designed by Sir Guy Campbell and Henry Longhurst opened for play in 1939.
Further lands were acquired in 1968 and the Killeen course designed by Eddie Hackett and Dr. Wm. O’Sullivan was constructed in 1969/70 and opened for play in 1971. In recent years this course has hosted the Irish Open Championship in 1991 and 1992 - winner Nick Faldo on both occasions and the Curtis Cup in 1966.
Further lands were acquired in 1995 and 1997 the Lackabane Course designed by Donald Steel was constructed and opened for play in 2000. This course was sold and closed in 2012 but since it has been re-launched as a 9-hole layout in 2016.
For centuries the beauty and mystique of Killarney have, been lauded in song verse, through years great names golf have played on written about its courses.
Societies are welcome and group rates are available.

History of Killarney Mahony's Point
Instituted 1893 affiliated 1893
A letter in "The Irish Times" 27th May 1894, from the Captain, Walter Butler tells us among other things, about the "beauty of Killarney Golf Club". The Earl of Kenmare had given the use of his Deer Park and was the President of the club. It had forty members in its first year at an annual subscription of ten shillings.
The course was extended to eighteen-holes in 1909, Willie Park gave advice on bunkers and other matters and was "Astonished at the sandy nature of the soil, quite expecting a clay or mud course so far inland. The trueness of the greens, with their sea, links grass especially took his fancy". He predicted a great future for the Killarney links, how right he was.
In 1936, the committee were looking for a new location and Lord Castlerosse, a keen golfer and son of Lord Kenmare, readily saw that the Western Demesne could be used for the new course. Under his guidance, The Killarney Golf Club Ltd. was formed. The course architects were Sir Guy Campbell and Henry Longhurst and the course was officially opened on 3rd October 1939. An additional eighteen holes were added in 1971.
