The K Club, Palmer North – “All the frills and thrills you could ask for”


The K Club, Palmer North – “All the frills and thrills you could ask for”


DG IRELAND TOP150 – 2023 with Editor Kevin Markham

This is big, glamorous parkland golf. Lakes, streams, rivers, ancient trees, lazy rhythm, and lots and lots of space. The Palmer North course at the K Club carries an enormous reputation for its design pedigree (Arnold Palmer) and for the events it has hosted (Ryder Cup and European Opens).

It is no surprise that it promises all the frills and thrills you could ask for. The River Liffey squeezes some holes but many other water features abound
on this gently rolling Kildare landscape.
Despite such volumes of water this is a relaxing round of golf
with generous fairways and big greens. You probably won’t even mind depositing a ball in the Liffey on the par five 7th… countless others have done the very same. And those fairways – all 18 of them – are brand new, having been relaid and reseeded in 2022.
It is not too tough but be sure to choose your tees wisely. The middle White tees measure 6,815 yards; the forward Green tees measure 6,240 yards. After your round enjoy the impressively renovated clubhouse.

Favourite Hole

The par four 16th is Index 1. It is a straight hole between
the trees with water threatening every shot (including
your putts). Tiger lost his 9 iron in the greenside pond.

What’s in the Bag?

A big day with the driver and lots of water to
