We are proud to announce that Kenmare GC are the host club for the Kerry federation of Clubs this year, with officers as follows: Captain David O’Dwyer, Sec John Barry Treasurer Bernard Hourihan Junior Convenor John Sheppard. David and his team took office on March 5th, and will do Kerry golf proud over the year.
Food, Glorious Food
Kenmare GC will be home to a new restaurant, McCarthy’s Par at Kenmare Golf Club. The restaurant will be open at weekends from March 16th, with a full opening at Easter.
We have had some trial runs with food for our Men’s West Cork league Shield team (food outstanding, golf mediocre), and the feedback was very good. Call in to the Golf Club and check it out – EVERYBODY is welcome. Look out for local advertising and keep an eye on “McCarthy’s Par at Kenmare Golf Club”.

At the time of writing, the final touches of preparations are going on for the Kenmare GC Local Areas Competition. This is a unique annual event, where Killarney Credit Union sponsor a competition for local teams. This will be a unique mix of 120 golfers – of all ages, locations, abilities and golfing styles. A great Credit Union event, for local people with a brilliant local sponsor.
