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".
Congratulations to Team Captain Raymond Flynn and his selectors Tony Browne and Michael Ryan for their superb organisation and management of the Ballykisteen team. Congratulations to squad members Martin Dineen, Liam Downey, Alan Dunphy, John Hoare, Keith Hoare, Olly Hodges, Ciaran Keating, Jamie Keaty, Mike Kennedy, Joe McDonald, Jimmy Nolan, Joe O Dwyer, Owen O Keefe, Colm Riordan, TJ Riordan and Johnathan Ryan.
