Overview Kinsale Golf Club

Kinsale Golf Club, a club with a long and distinguished history and a bright future to come. Located on the south west coast of Ireland, alongside the historic and picturesque town of Kinsale.

The club is strongly rooted in the area, with most of the members living close by. This provides a truly warm welcome for the visitor, who may often linger longer than anticipated! There are two golf courses to savour, the rolling fairways of Farrangalway and the slopes running into the water at Ringenane. Both offer a different experience, so why not play both!

Kinsale Golf Club has the fortunate position of having two very different courses, Farrangalway and Ringenane. Two very distinct courses complement each other well and offer the visitor a very full day!


Designed by architect Jack Kenneally, this challenging 18 hole course is also beautifully situated, this time in the meadowlands of the Bandon River valley, just two miles north of Kinsale. The landscape has been utilised to its maximum and the planting of a large number of hardwood trees will in time add to its playing strategy.

6,609 yards long and consisting of two loops, the course starts and finishes at the Clubhouse, situated on the highest point of the course. The first hole maximises the roll of the land, initially eastwards towards the boundary of the old Cork to Kinsale railway line and the refurbished station-house.

It continues over the incline and flows to the natural waterways on the back nine holes, which makes for a pleasant and interesting field of play. The course is a stiff yet fair challenge to all standards of golfers, a challenge which will manifest itself as the course matures.

The Clubhouse has been tastefully designed, overlooking the ninth and eighteenth greens and consists of extensive locker room facilities, bar and restaurant with additional Pro Shop facilities for sales, lessons and hire.


Ringenane - The headland of the birds.
The name is magical and for many the headland is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. Nor was it short these past 65 years of birdies, no, the golfers have seen to that and even the odd eagle has been known to appear!

Ringenane holds an attraction for both members and visitors. Its peaceful and picturesque location overlooking the the Belgooly river estuary, its long established natural habitat for flora and fauna and the respect and care the long-standing members and staff hold for this place, have made this course a unique place to play.

Sloping down to the riverbanks, and occupying a small circular peninsula, a demanding round of golf awaits on this tight course, playing into the natural slopes of the land.

Ringenane welcomes green fees and societies and is an ideal starting place ground for beginners. Juvenile members continue to utilise the demands of this course for their basics and groundwork.

The course has full Clubhouse facilities - changing rooms, bar and restaurant. Trolley and club hire is also available.
