PARKNASILLA GOLF COURSE
Parknasilla Golf Course is a 12-hole course, set beside the ruins of Derryquin Castle, the original castle on the Parknasilla estate; it is just a few hundred metres from the hotel. The course has spectacular views of Kenmare Bay and the rich subtropical vegetation of the area provides a colourful backdrop to the manicured fairways.
Playing this course is a must if you are in Kerry, all of the holes are eminently playable by higher handicap golfers. The twelve-hole course has a par of 69 (18 holes) with one par five and two par threes. A clever mix of open and tight fairways gives the golfer an opportunity to open the shoulders safely at some holes while doing so at one's peril on others.
The sand based greens provide true putting surfaces all year round. The most memorable holes at Parknasilla's new course are the eleventh and twelfth. A ball over shooting the green finds the saltwater of the Atlantic Ocean. The twelfth is spectacularly placed in Kenmare Bay, between the large pines that skirt both sides of the fairway.
Golf Clubs and other equipment are available for hire.
