This is big, glamorous parkland golf. Lakes, streams, river, ancient trees, lazy rhythm, and lots and lots of space. The Palmer North course carries an enormous reputation for its design pedigree (Arnold Palmer) and for the events it has hosted (Ryder Cup, European and Irish Opens). It is no surprise that it promises
all the frills and thrills you could ask for. The River Liffey squeezes some holes but many other water features abound on this gently rolling Kildare landscape.
Despite such volumes of water this is a relaxing round of golf with generous fairways and big, swinging greens. You probably won’t even mind depositing a ball in the Liffey on the par five 7th… countless others have done the very same. And those fairways – all 18 of them – were completely re-laid and reseeded
in 2022, providing a major splash of glamour ahead of last year’s
Irish Open… one which will be repeated in 2025 and 2027. Be sure to choose your tees wisely as the middle White tees measure 6,815 yards. The forward Green tees are far kinder at 6240yards.

Favourite Hole
The par four 16th is Index 1. It is a straight hole between
the trees with water threatening every shot (including
your putts). Tiger lost his 9 iron in the greenside pond.
What’s in the Bag?
A big day with the driver and lots of water to
contend with
