|Views across the course from Moyvalley's 1st tee|
Killin Park golf course, outside Dundalk, got a real kick in the teeth when its 170 members were told that the course was closing... not next year, not next month... but at 5pm that evening. Here's the story from the Irish Independent. It's not a course that would ever set the world alight for its quality, but it was charming country golf that fulfilled the needs of many, and the mature landscape is quite stunning. Here's the approach to the 1st hole. It may yet survive... but the land was sold to a local farmer.
