The K Club, also known as Kildare Hotel & Country Club, boasts two Arnold Palmer-designed championship courses. The Palmer Smurfit Course was built to contrast with the original layout at the club, the Palmer Ryder Cup Course. Whereas the Ryder Cup Course is an American-style parkland layout, the Smurfit is more of a links course. Smurfit's unique 'inland links' design features dune-like mounding throughout. There are also fewer trees on the Smurfit Course, but there is the same abundant amount of water coming into play as its sister course is known for, if not more. One of the most dramatic water holes is the par-5 seventh, which features a vast man made rock, called the 'Swallow Quarry,' which rises 60 feet out of a lake that comes into play on the hole.
