The Smurfit Course at The K Club

The best way to describe the Arnold Palmer designed Smurfit Course at The K Club is that of an inland links course. However, its true attributes do not stop there. The course has many dramatic landscapes with dune style mounding throughout. This assists in making the course into a true Championship Golf Course with many vantage points for spectators to view golf professionals at work.

This course has played host to some of golf’s most exciting moments. Who could forget the excitement of the 2004 Smurfit European Open when Retief Goosen went on to win just two weeks after taking his second US Open title?

Or the closing stages of the 2007 Smurfit European Open, when Colin Montgomerie finally ended his 18-month drought without a trophy and somehow stayed out of the water on the 18th to win the 2007 European Open by just one shot?

Special Golf Holes:
  • 3rd (Kingfisher Realm)
  • 7th (Swallow Quarry)
  • 16th (Little Grebe Dive)
  • 18th (Swan Island)
