September 29, 2010

Having played host to the last European Ryder Cup in 2006, The K Club in Ireland knows all about the excitement, high drama and tension that are likely to bestow our screens during the forthcoming Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor in Wales on the 1st-3rd October. For golf fans looking to test their skills on the famous Ryder Palmer Course, the K Club is offering a two night 'Ryder Cup Experience' package in October, with non-golfing partners offered spa treatments at the award-winning K Spa.

The Ryder Cup Package consists of a two night stay on a B&B basis in a Superior room, a round of golf on The Palmer Ryder Cup Course with Ryder Cup 2006 pin positioning, Ryder Cup goodie bag, a round of golf on The Smurfit European Open Course and themed dinner on one evening in The River Room Restaurant. Non golfers in the party may have either a 1 hour K Spa Massage or a 1 hour K Spa facial. Prices from €425 (£355) per person based on two people sharing. To book: or telephone +353 (0) 1 6017 200

Golf fans around the world aspire to play on championship golf courses, especially those that play host to major tournaments such as the Ryder Cup, the Open and PGA competitions. They like to see how they perform on a course played by the world's best golfers. The 2006 Ryder Cup was watched by a billion people around the world and ended in an exciting climax with the European team, headed up by Ian Woosnam winning the tournament. The K Club has also hosted 13 European Opens from 1995 to 2007.

This sentiment was conveyed by Declan Donnelly (of Ant & Dec) who said on playing the Palmer Ryder course at the K Club: "Having watched the Ryder Cup being played here in 2006 and playing here now is amazing." Declan had been playing as part of a recent celebrity tournament with other famous names from sport and screen such as Ian Botham, Ronan Keating (who owns a property on the estate), Alan Shearer, James Nesbit, Dennis Taylor, Kevin Keegan, Steve Harper, David Seaman, Gary Speed, Dwight Yorke, Les Ferdinand and Dean Ashton.

Now golf fans, wishing to play regularly on the famous Palmer Ryder Course and stay for extended periods at the K Club, can buy a share in a property in the grounds of the fabulous 550-acre estate near Dublin.

The K Club is now working in partnership with leading co-ownership specialist Firstlight to offer exclusive fractional ownership of luxury properties located on the edge of the golf course. The 33 fractional properties consisting of 2 and 3 bedroom duplex apartments, and 3 and 4 bedroom detached private residences are available with deeded equity.

Fractional ownership through Firstlight enables purchasers to have access to all the privacy, comfort and exclusivity of a home in the prestigious K Club but without the hefty price tag. Purchasers can enjoy the flexibility and space of living in their own home, with hotel facilities on tap and full residential family membership to two of the world's most prestigious golf courses on their doorstep.

Introductory prices for the properties range from €131,500 (£108,100) for an eighth share in a 2 bedroom apartment (1215 sq. ft.) and go up to €330,000 (£273, 745)  for a 4 bedroom house (3,800 sq.ft). For more information visit

The Arnold Palmer designed course is said to reflect the personality of its architect. Described as 'charismatic and cavalier', from the instant one arrives at the first tee, golfers are enveloped by its unique atmosphere.  It is widely acknowledged as the country's most challenging inland layout, with plenty of dramatic holes, but at the same time charming, and able to bring out the very best in one's game.
