The Ring of Kerry Golf and Country Club is located in the village of Templenoe, 4 miles west of the town of Kenmare, Co. Kerry. It is without doubt the most spectacular parkland golf course in Ireland and is acclaimed by many as the finest new course in the country. The Killarney courses are beautiful but Ring of Kerry is simply majestic. Overlooking beautiful Kenmare Bay, the golf course nestles between the towering MacGillycuddy Reeks and the Caha Mountains. Majesty alone of course does not make a great golf course. The scenery helps but it's the layout, stiff challenge and excellent greens that make Ring of Kerry Golf Club one of the finest new golf courses in Ireland. Feature holes include the testing 6th hole, "Ladies View" due to its scenic splendour. The tee shot on this short par 4 is surely the most breathtaking in Ireland. From a raised tee, position is essential, with water lying right and a stream and ditch to the left. On the backnine the par four 14th, requires a second shot through an avenue of trees with an out of bounds on the left. The closing hole is a par three over a stretch of water. A sloping green will carry all shots to the left into bunkers, while a shot to the right is likely to lodge on the bank, requiring a delicate approach chip.
