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".

Spring League 2020

The Dave Kavanagh (Tipperary Testing Center) sponsored Spring League will start from February 17th. The committee decided to defer the start of the spring league this year in the hope we will miss the most of the bad weather. The format will stay the same with players picking their own teams as the same team has not won it for a number of years. The only major change is permitting teams to split up. The full rules will follow in the next couple of weeks.
Members who are not members of a team but would like to play in this fun event please give your name and when you are available to play to the proshop.
