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 6th 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".


Spring League Final

Spring League Final Sponsored by David Kavanagh Tipperary Testing Center

The Committee has decided to allow all teams through to the final on next Sunday. This is because all teams played a minimum of two rounds and the weather curtailed members opportunity to play Golf.
The final will be over 18 holes from the Green Tees unless the weather intervenes.
The format for the final is that it will be on Sunday 25th from 1.00pm. There are 16 slots booked from 1.00 until 3.00 so book your slot with the Proshop. Presentation of Prizes will be immediately after the conclusion of the round.

Captains Drive In 2018

Captain Frankie, Lady Captain Caroline and Junior Captain JJ were blessed with beautiful weather for the drive in on Sunday 25th February. There was a great crowd present to see some great drives down the first. With over 90 playing on the day a very enjoyable day was had by all. The 9 holes were followed by finger food in the Ballyk Bar where members mingled for the first time this year. Great credit is due to the staff for having the course in great condition for the day.

Frankie said afterwards that he was under a lot of pressure to get his Tee Shot away and was glad that this was over.
