K Club Festival of Golf

A golf course that is praised and dismissed in equal measure... there's one thing that few people disagree on, and that's the excessive green fees at the K Club.
So, when an opportunity comes along to play the Ryder Cup course for €75, there is likely to be a large number of golfers ready and willing to play one of Ireland's big, glamorous and most famous courses. Only problem is, you can only do so on Monday 15th and Monday 22nd of August, 2011.
The Smurfit course can also be played during the Festival of Golf, for €54, but I have never been enamored with it as there are too many uninteresting holes to start with... but for €54 I might be tempted back... especially for the cracking finishing stretch.
