The course at Killeen Golf Club was originally constructed in 1980 and went under the name of Four Lakes. In 1994, the Riverbury investment company bought the property, along with some additional land and they brought in Tom Craddock and Pat Ruddy to redesign a new 18-hole layout which became Killeen.

Over time, new water features have been added, state-of-the-art drainage and irrigation installed, USGA specification greens constructed, tree plantations established and the clubhouse refurbished to create one of the best parkland facilities in County Kildare.

It’s an American-style course laid out on a relatively tight 110 acre site – though it can play as long as 6743 yards – with plenty of ponds to keep you on your toes throughout (water comes into play at no fewer that 13 holes) and large, contoured greens that will test your putting skills to the full.

The 366-yard 7th is the shortest of ten par fours on the scorecard but it’s far from easy to pick up a par here. The hole doglegs slightly left so the ideal drive is down the right side of the fairway, leaving an approach to an elevated green surrounded on all sides by bunkers. The last of the par three holes comes at the 18th and it’s a 176-yard carry from the back tee across water to a green with bunkers at the front and back, out of bounds to the left and even more water to the right!
