Today we travelled about an hour and a half north west of Cork to Killarney. Our destination was the Killarney Golf & Fishing Club which is a private golf club on the shore of Lough Leane just west of Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland. The club has three 18-hole golf courses, Killeen, Lackabane and Mahony’s Point.
The Killeen Course measures 7,031 yards and plays to a par of 72. It has been the venue for the European Tour’s Irish Open in 1991, 1992, 2010 and 2011.
Killeen was a pretty course and again the natural beauty surrounding these Irish courses is great. My golf was back on track today so the I hate golf, I hate golf mantra is now back to I love golf much to Steve’s delight!
There were some rather large animal deposits on the course which we were wondering which animal they belonged to. The bunkers on the 14th hole were covered in deer hoof prints so we worked out who the culprits were! The black ravens were also very prevalent on the course and they aren’t too bothered by you or your golf ball. They were busy digging up the fairways with their beaks looking for food. Natural coring machines?
