Ballykisteen Club Crest

Ballykisteen Hotel and Golf resort has everything you expect in a Golf resort. 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. Each hole is laid out using the natural contours of the land where possible and incorporated an abundance of bunkers and water hazards which feature on 11 holes. Marian Riordan (Ballykisteen Golf Pro) describes the 15th 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".
