About Ballykisteen

The Ballykisteen Championship Golf course is a superb 18 hole, 72 par, Des Smyth designed championship golf course which was opened in 1993 and was formerly the famous Ballykisteen Stud.

Nestled in the heart of the Golden Vale

The clever design and suitability to all handicaps makes this golf hotel and Ballykisteen golf course an ideal venue for any golf outing. The golf course is set only minutes from Limerick Junction, County Tipperary in tree-sculptured surroundings against a backdrop of the Galtee Mountains. The golf course is constructed to the highest of standards distinguished by the superb quality of the putting surfaces. Smyth laid out each hole using the natural contours of the land where possible and incorporated an abundance of bunkers and water hazards which feature on 11 holes. Symth himself puts forward the 15th as one of the signature holes at Ballykisteen "probably the most difficult in the country; 230 yards from the back elevated tee to a green surrounded by water on three sides and out of bounds on the left, nothing but a perfect golf shot will do".

Golfer of the year

Competitions for this prestigious title finished last weekend and it could not have been tighter. Mick Kennedy took the monthly medal by 1 point from Jonathan Ryan and that left Mick just 1 point clear at the top of the leaderboard for Golfer of the year. Well done to both players for an exceptional year of golf. Full points table available Here.

Monthly Medal

On the Weekend of 17th to 19th we will hold our last Medal for 2014 which is kindly sponsored by Marian Riordan PGA Professional. With the winner of the Golfer of the year still in the balance this should be a keenly fought event. Please come out to support this competition as you have done so far this year. Format will be off White tees and conditions are still TBC depending on weather over the next week or so.
