Course of the Month

June 2019

Kilworth, Ireland Ireland

Kilworth is a village of some 1,000 souls, situated just north of Fermoy in Co. Cork, Ireland, on the banks of the River Funcheon.

The Kilworth Pitch and Putt course lies at the edge of the village, adjacent to GAA, tennis, handball, squash and racquetball facilities.

The course is pretty flat but does feature some raised sloping greens, some like upturned saucers. 

Kilworth's Index One hole, the 9th, plays 70 metres over a hedge into the prevailing wind. Index Two is the 18th which measures 54 metres and requires the player to carry some trees and a grass bank. The 18th, 8th and 2nd tees converge in the centre of the course.  Two trees form the main obstacle in front of the green on Kilworth's 8th, which presents an Index 10 tee shot of 42 metres.

The tiny 28 metre 11th lies at one of the furthest points on the course from the attractive clubhouse. The Index 8 13 Number 15 hole calls for a 36 metre pitch over a grassy mound. A massive fall away awaits on three sides of the green on the 35 metre 16th, alongside which the boundary fence looms on the left. 

Kilworth Pitch and Putt club is open all year round for Green Fees (Juvenile: €2; Adult: €5). New members are always welcome.
