Golf News
New Season. What a fantastic start is has been to 2019 for Golf. We have had counting golf (which means no special winter-related rules) at Kenmare GC for the first January in a long number of years.
Playing numbers for November/December/January are way up on previous years, and there has never been a better time to take up golf. Contact Kenmare GC on 064-6641291 to join the class of 2019, where you’ll get all the help you need with equipment, lessons and playing partners.
New Rules. Some significant changes have been made to the rules of golf in 2019. Looks out for 2 events at Kenmare Golf Club – Member’s Rules night on Jan 25th, followed by a Munster GUI Rules Roadshow in February. The full set of rule changes are in view on the R&A website (, and playing rules books for every member are available for collection in the clubhouse.

Happy Golfing in 2019!
