Found on one of the far South Western fringes of Ireland in County Kerry is the luxurious Parknasilla Resort and Spa and its associated golf course. The surroundings of both the resort and the course here are magnificent and frequent views of the beautiful Kerry Mountains and Kenmare Bay can be seen from here. Set it in a large estate the course itself lies next to the majestic and imposing ruins the ancient Derryquin Castle and players here are sure to be in for an unforgettable golfing experience.

The course here is somewhat unique and was designed by the well-known architect Dr Arthur Spring. Spring has worked on many popular courses within Ireland and some of his notable other works include the courses at the Beaufort and Castleisland golf clubs.

A 12 hole layout which is of a parkland style, the course here can be enjoyed as just the 12 holes or the full 18. An 18 hole round has a par of 69 and measures some 5140 metres from the white tees. Features of this course include beautifully manicured fairways and sand based greens as well as an interesting mixture of open and tight fairways which will be a great test for even the most experienced of golfers. Although there is some challenge to be had when playing here overall this is a course which is suitable for golfers of most levels and players with higher handicaps should still have no problem here.

Due to its resort status the facilities here are generally good and there are a number of dining options for players to enjoy whilst here. Tee times for visitors to this course have generally fair availability however weekends are more restricted and of course, members and hotel guests have priority to play here. Green fee rates here are also very good and there are a number of offers and discounts for players to have here which can combine stay and play and are even better value for money.

Although it may at first seem somewhat secluded, the resort actually lies near to one of the man through routes of county Kerry meaning that access here is good. The attached hotel is the best option with regards to accommodation for visitors and all guests are sure to enjoy a pleasant and warm stay here.

    The number of 12 holes is already exceptional, you can play but also an 18-hole round and then play the first and the last 3 holes each twice.The place is very well kept and varied. The terrain is quite hilly. For men, the discounts are often quite narrow, it must beat off it very straight.Some railways has really very nice views of walk final at the Bucht.Ein through the hotel premises (approx. 500 m continue a) is highly recommended.
