Killarney Mahony’s Point
With three golf courses to choose from at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. Undoubtedly, the most picturesque course is not Killeen or the Academy. Absolutely, the Killarney Mahony’s Point course is for definite.
In Fact, with spectacular views across the Killarney Lakes in one direction. Also, Ireland‘s highest mountains along with, the fantastic McGillicuddy Reeks overlooking the lakes.
The golf course is set on Lough Leane banks. The largest freshwater lake in the Southwest. The highest of the McGillicuddy Reeks is the Carrauntoohll peak which is the backdrop to many of the golf course holes.
The first hole is an open dogleg left. Indeed, which opens up into a generous fairway. Do not be distracted by the scenery behind the green. Approach the green with caution with bunkers strategically placed down the right-hand side of the green.
Stroke index 1 occurs at the par 4 13th hole. The straight hitters will be in their element here with a narrow fairway to aim at. Thus, stay slightly down to the left to get the opportunity of a good shot into the green. The Green, which is protected on the right-hand side by a massive bunker… going into it is not recommended.
The last three holes here are absolutely breathtaking as you play nearer and nearer to the lake. The 18th hole is most definitely one of the most memorable in golf. Thus, one of the most beautiful in Ireland. This par 3,200 yards hole, requires a huge carry over the corner of the lake. Clearly, It is one of the most photographed holes globally and has been named “Heavens Reflex”.
Without a doubt, playing here is just about as pleasurable experience any golfers can have with scenery second-to-none.
