At 6,200 yards, the parkland course winds through the banks of Sullane, while taking golfers on a journey of rolling terrain in the shadows of the Kerry Mountains.
Mature trees and the River Sullane, which comes into play on the first five holes of the Back 9, add obstacle and beauty to Macroom Golf Club.
Located on castle grounds, there is what was once a women's ""bathing house"" that stands across the Sullane from the 12th hole. The 18th hole is considered a real test by players -- the Par-4 features out of bounds on both sides but does set up the golfer for a birdie opportunity with a well placed drive in the fairway.
Macroom Golf Club is ideally located 40km west of Cork City (30 mins drive) and 48km east of Killarney, Co.Kerry (40 mins drive).
