Overall course was good, greens were excellent on the ones that we played, but I would advise players not to book a round for Thursday morning, you only get to play 13 holes as their Seniors are out.

Kilkenny Golf club

A very enjoyable outing with my son. Good value thanks to golf now. The course is a true test and is very long, you need to hit driver often and you will still have a long iron in to most par fours. Greens were quick but true. Really enjoyed playing Kilkenny Golf course

Perfect weather
Walked

Immaculate course, still has plenty of interest.

Shortish holes close together, so no long walks, but so well designed that your not conscious of the other holes. Nice pace. Oh so subtle greens in great shape, so consistent and true, but.your putter will be the most costly club in the bag! Dont be afraid to layup and play for position rather than gir.

Pace of play

We were put out in the middle of a big ladies competition. Pace of play was extremely slow and this ruined the round.

The course should not have taken our booking on this day
