Establishment: The Ring of Kerry Golf Club was established in 1998 and designed by acclaimed golf course architect Eddie Hackett. Hackett utilized the natural landscape to create a challenging and picturesque 18-hole course.
Ring of Kerry Golf Club is privately owned and privately managed the leading golf management company Synergy Golf.
The Synergy Golf team took over the management and maintenance of the facility in late 2023 and since then the facility has only gone from strength to strength.
