The Palmer Ryder Cup Course at the K Club, located 30 minutes outside Dublin, will always be a historic parkland playground for golfers.

Photo gallery: Courses at Carton House Golf Club near Dublin provide a stark contrast to one another
Located 30 minutes outside Dublin, the two courses at Carton House Golf Club provide a stark contrast to one another. The Montgomerie Course, a 7,301-yard inland links, is dotted with 130 cavernous bunkers. Mark O'Meara's 7,006-yard parkland design is more forgiving. Holes 14-16 run through a scenic valley containing the Rye River. Director of Golf Francis Howley calls this stretch "our Amen Corner.
The O'Meara Course at Carton House Golf Club in County Kildare, Ireland, has its own version of Augusta National's "Amen Corner." Like an engine on a cold morning, O'Meara sputters a bit to start, but the course roars to life on the back nine. Located on the Rye River-enhanced nos. 14-16, the course's Amen Corner is as good a three-hole stretch of parkland golf as Ireland offers.
