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 Update

After five rounds of the DOE sponsored Spring League the Committee reviewed when members were playing. We found that teams who were not confined to playing at weekends were at a significant advantage. The last two weekends while the course was open was not conducive to good golf.
The Committee have made the following decision.
The top ten teams and ties who currently have a score of 204 are deemed to have qualified for the spring League Final on Sunday March 24th.
The remaining teams are permitted to play up to two rounds before Monday 18th March. If they can match or better the team in tied 10th on 204 pts they are deemed to have qualified for the Spring League Final
