About Ballykisteen

The Ballykisteen Championship Golf course is a superb 18 hole, 72 par, Des Smyth designed championship golf course which was opened in 1993 and was formerly the famous Ballykisteen Stud.

Nestled in the heart of the Golden Vale

The clever design and suitability to all handicaps makes this golf hotel and Ballykisteen golf course an ideal venue for any golf outing. The golf course is set only minutes from Limerick Junction, County Tipperary in tree-sculptured surroundings against a backdrop of the Galtee Mountains. The golf course is constructed to the highest of standards distinguished by the superb quality of the putting surfaces. Smyth laid out each hole using the natural contours of the land where possible and incorporated an abundance of bunkers and water hazards which feature on 11 holes. Symth himself puts forward the 6th as one of the signature holes at Ballykisteen "probably the most difficult in the country; 230 yards from the back elevated tee to a green surrounded by water on three sides and out of bounds on the left, nothing but a perfect golf shot will do".


Matchplay 2017

Names are now being taken for the Arthur Pierse Trophy (Singles Matchplay) and the Michael Kennedy Trophy (4 ball Matchplay) in the Proshop. Entry is 10 euro per person for each competition. Competition rules and draw details will be advised in future correspondence.

Spring League

As the weather has done its best to prevent the playing of the spring League, the competition organizers have made the following decision.

All the teams that entered the competition are now deemed to have qualified for the final.
As the re-arranged date for the Spring League final was clashing with Mothers Day we have decided to allow the final be played over three days. Friday 24th to Sunday 26th March. Teams can play on the day that suits them best.
The Format for the Final will remain the same as a Champagne Scramble from the Green Tees but will be over 18 Holes. Full Handicap applies.

Presentation of Prizes will be held at the first Presentation night.
