Knightsbrook is the full resort package and one of Ireland’s newest parkland additions. The clubhouse is part of a hotel, and they both watch over the 1st hole, which slides alongside. It is a Christy O’Connor Jnr design and it is a muscular beast, measuring 6,600 yards (par 72) from the forward green tees… you’ll need to be driving well to take Knightsbrook on. But the doglegs are plentiful and the water features magnetic, so length is only one of the requirements.
Trees are infrequent so you definitely have lots of room to play on an open, mounded landscape, and hitting into such quality greens is always a thrill.
