Smurfit Course, The K Club - Kildare Hotel, Spa and Country Club
18 holes, 72 par, 7300 yards. Inland.
The Smurfit Golf Course (originally known as the South Course) offers a completely different, but equally severe test of golf when compared to the Palmer course. With all the appearance and feel of an inland links, the golf course features undulating fairways, large difficult greens and treacherous rough. The Smurfit golf course does however share the same abundance of challenging water hazards as the Palmer Ryder Cup. With an intimidating length from the back tees of 7,300 yards, the track is home to the Smurfit European Open. However, it will accommodate all levels of player, with several tees on each hole allowing for the overall length of the golf course to be considerably reduced.
