When staying at Glencar House we can offer you a five-day golfing challenge, on five magnificent courses and each within 30 minutes drive.
Day One - Beaufort Golf Resort
Set amongst 200 year old trees, 12th century castle ruins, fairy lies and rolling hills, Beaufort Golf Resort is designed for all golfers. The course presents magnificent views of the McGillycuddy Reeks from all points. Carved from natural terrain, every hole offers the golfer fair but demanding shots with a lake, mature trees and deep bunkers penalising the wayward.
Day Two - Dooks Golf Links
Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889, when it was introduced to local aristocracy. It is one of the oldest Links courses in Ireland. The course is set on a stretch of sand dune at the head of Dingle Bay. For the golfer seeking a beautiful and tranquil environment to enjoy good golf, Dooks presents a convincing case. Hole 13 best illustrates the charm and magic of Dooks.
Day Three - Killorgan Golf Club
18-hole parkland course in the heart of Co. Kerry. Par 72. Designed by Eddie Hackett. Magnificent scenery on all sides. Visitors always welcome.
Day Four - Skellig Bay Golf Club
Skellig Bay is a stunning Ron Kirby designed championship golf course. Over 7,400 yards in length, the course has 5 tees on every hole and is a must play course for all visitors to Southern Ireland.
Day Five - Waterville Golf Links
Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience - the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements. Over 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world.
Links golf combines sand dunes gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever-changing weather. Forget the lob wedge. Think bump and run and creative shot making. Are you ready to walk in the footsteps of Irelands earliest golfers?
