Poor weather

Excellent Parkland Layout

Today was the start of the serious golf with a late morning start at the K Club - Palmer Course, the venue of the 2006 Ryder Cup. This was to be the only non links course on the tour and is a beautiful parkland style setting. The place oozes class from the minute you turn into the property, a huge accommodation hotel, spacious locker rooms and lovely clubhouse.

The course was in superb condition with fairways manicured within an inch of their life. The fairways were reminiscent of Metropolitan without the hardness and roll we get in Melbourne. The weather gods finally transpired to toss some sleety showers that were with us the entire back nine which made things that little bit tougher.

I have a bit of an issue with courses that have an over reliance on water (creeks, lakes etc) as a central defence of the course and this kind of falls in that category with water present on more than half of the holes. Having said that there is plenty of room and it stands up as a reasonably fair course.

Would I call it a great course? No. For mine there aren't a lot of holes that I recall as having any WOW factor but the finishing three are strong. the par 3's didn't really hit my go button and are perhaps better holes played from the tips. It is the sort of course that you would play much better the second time after working out correct lines off the tees.

great value for money

We played a 3 ball on Sunday 2nd Feb and only had to pay.49 euro per person this was fantastic value and even though we have had some very heavy rain lately the course was in excellent condition. We will definitely be looking for similar deals at the K club again.

Excellent golf course with history

I highly recommend K Club. It is a plasure to play such a good golf course. Narrow fairways and a lot of water hazard on the back nine makes Palmers Course quite challenging.

Terrific Course!

The Smurfit course was in great shape. I consider it to be a far superior course than the Palmer course. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and welcoming. We asked for a buggy but even though they didn't have one, they made every effort to have one for us on the turn after our 9th hole. The Pro Shop is equipped with lots of items and even though expensive, this isn't a course we play every day so it was worth it to buy some items. The finishing hole is tough but fair. Be mindful of the wind when taking out a club. Overall, a very fair test of golf and with the friendly staff, I highly recommend this course at the golfnow discount rates!

Good value but Palmer course better

Played smurfit at end of may 2013, good value at 37 euro. Weather was sunny but breezy making for tough scoring, nice course especially last six holes, general condition was good but could do with bit more work. Greens were good however, overall worth up to 40 euro, not quite as good as the sister Palmer course but cheaper :-)
