Killarney, Co Kerry.
Killeen, the jewel in the crown, re-opened in 2006 offering both spectacular lakeside scenery and also challenging golf to long hitters with water features on nearly every hole and fast greens. Nick Faldo, on winning the first of his two successive Irish Opens in 1991, was one of only three players to finish under par. The Killeen Course hosted The Irish Open in August 2010, and again in July 2011
The South West of Ireland is regarded as one of the great golfing destinations in the world, rightly famed for the quality of its magnificent links, but also recognised for some outstanding parkland courses. Many US Professionals have used it for practice on the way to the British Open including many winners such as Tigers Woods, Phil Mickleson, Ernie Els, Tom Watson, Mark O'Meara to mention just a few.
