Situated on one of the far Western fringes of Ireland in County Clare is the Kilkee Golf Club and its associated golf course. Perched on a cliff top overlooking the Atlantic Ocean the views that can be had from this course are excellent and players here will be able to see the nearby, beautiful Chimney Bay. Although found in some of the extremities of the country there are a number of excellent fellow golf clubs in the area including the well-known Doonbeg Golf Links.

The club here has a rich and interesting history and was originally founded in 1896. Over the years the course has seen a number of modifications and redevelopments however nature is the true designer of this course. 

This unique coastal parkland course consists of 18 holes laid out in two loops of nine which have been blended together seamlessly. Measuring 5156 metres from the yellow tees, this par 70 course may not be the longest in the world but it is a tough challenge. Features here are determined mainly by nature and the cliff top tees and greens are as challenging as they are beautiful. 

The facilities at this club are good and include a bar and restaurant for players to enjoy after their rounds. There is also a well-stocked professional golf shop stocking a number of international merchandise, equipment and apparel brands. Motorised trolleys are also available to hire from the pro shop. 

Tee time availability for visitors to this course is fair and prior booking will ensure that the needs of players are met. Green fee rates are also very reasonable and players will find that this is a great value for money course which can be enjoyed by many. There are also a number of membership options available for visitors to this course which are great for those wanting to make this course a regular feature in their golfing calendars.

As the course is quite secluded getting there can take some time however the road routes are generally good and the golf to be played is surely worth it. With regards to accommodation there are a number of hotels which are of varying size in and around the local area and these should appeal to the tastes and budgets of most visitors.

    (Round played: Sep 2015 - Score: 76 Handicap: )What wonderful scenery at this friendly course. Some holes would not be out of place up the road at Doonbeg. Great value and a must if you are down this way.

    Cliff top links. Spectacular views across the bay. Especially from what I presume is the signature hole, Short par four third, where you tee off across the cliff tops. Played it twice that week, firstly in a light breeze, secondly in a strongish westerly, too difficult for me the second time. At least the club-house manageress was sympathetic and the Guinness was well kept.

    Played as part of a golf/family holiday with my mate Mark and his family. Lovely backdrop of the atlantic, some interesting holes especially the first 4-5 holes. The course was in poor condition though for the time of year (end July), tees and greens were rough. Would not go back at near £40 per round without 2-4-1 vouchers. The food was not good in the clubhouse. We had bacon baps that had not properly thawed!!!!
