Characteristics

Founded in 1888, Kilkee resides in one of the most popular counties for golf in Ireland, Co. Clare. In recent years it has developed into an 18-hole course, successfully blending the old course with the new layout.

The land is pure, rugged links and much admired by famous names in golf, including Greg Norman, who, incidentally, has just opened his course at Doonbeg just 20 minutes away.

The views in Kilkee, however, are breathtaking. The first and second tees look out onto the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean and the third tee overlooks Chimney Bay, with a spectacular clifftop view.

Beautiful place with cliff feeling

Approximately 30 minutes drive from Lahinch and 20 minutes from Doonbeg with their expensive class places is in the south of the Kilkee Club right on the cliffs, which rarely come into play, but offer rare views of the sea and bay of Kilkee. Once-at the signature hole - you play so diagonally on the next cliff.
Otherwise, except for the first 5 mostly flat tracks, which can be very demanding in wind.
Kilkee itself is a typical Irish seaside resort with a circular bay and great views.
At the reception one is very relaxed and extremely friendly.

Worth a detour

First light drizzle, which as predicted by the friendly lady in the office, stopped after four holes. I would play the place again. Great views of the Atlantic. Not difficult to play without wind. Good care condition and very nice people.

Linkscourse with great views

We played the golf course in the rain, but with little wind and without other golfers - in fact we were alone. Especially the hole 3 with tee-off from a cliff over the cliff edge to narrow fairway with Rough at the sides an experience (yes, one of my balls is now in the Atlantic - sorry! - had taken the iron). The lanes are partly unspectacular at the rear, but the view definitely compensates. The last holes become more interesting again. The greens are great to play. The clubhouse is a little bit older, the staff was not very interested in a conversation with us and the restaurant had unfortunately closed. Overall however at the price in any case a golf course one should not miss.
