On one of the far Western fringes of mainland Ireland is where you will find the golf course at Ballyheigue Castle Golf Club. Nestled on the edge of County Kerry near to the shore of the North Atlantic this golf course is in a truly stunning location. The surrounding area is known for its host of great golf courses including those at nearby Ballybunion and Tralee

The course was opened in 1996 and is set around an estate which is also home to a majestic 18th century castle. Designed by Roger Jones this mature parkland style course has some fantastic views and its location is rarely rivalled. 

Consisting of 9 holes and measuring 2920 metres from the white tees it has a par of 36. This is an ideal destination for players who either want a quick enjoyable game or those who want to play a few rounds here. There are enough features and installations here to entertain all. Laid out through some beautiful mature woodland this course has just the perfect dosage of a challenge for players of varying strengths. 

The facilities here are fair, if a little sparse, however the staff and members are sure to be happy to direct you to some places nearby in which to enjoy a good meal or soak up the Irish culture in a local pub. Green fee rates for visitors here are reasonable and the club and trolley hire rates are also a good price. Tee times for visitors are fair and there should be a reasonable time for most to enjoy a round. 

Although the course is somewhat secluded it is relatively easy to access from most of the south of Ireland. The county town of Tralee is little over 20 km away and this has more well established links with the rest of Ireland and has good access to a number of principal roads and motorways. With regards to accommodation options in the area there is everything from small, family-run hotels to hire cottages for larger parties so there is sure to be something to appeal to all of those who wish to play and stay in the area. They may even wish to try some of the other courses in the local area which were mentioned above.

    If you're looking for a something a little different this is a great course and don't let the 9 holes put you off, some of the holes are so good it was a pleasure to play them twice. With fabulous views over the bay trough the ruins of an old castle it made for a lovely round of golf. Good value for money excellent condition and very friendly staff.One point, if you play as a couple the ladies tees are way forward from the mens Played May 20014 h'cap 9

    A really beautiful place, where it is worth to play a second round.Many holes, it has a great view to the beach and to the Dingle Peninsula. Partially, there is also an old ruin of the eye, which is integrated in the plant.The place was very well maintained and is very interesting.The value for money is great. We have decided only after 9 holes, again to a spin and had to pay only the difference.
