    I have played this course on 2 occasions and unfortunately i found it open and bland with no character.
    The layout is terrible and greens are not in good condition.The rough is just little over 2nd cut fairway height so no problem there.You could hit a wayward shot left or right on most holes and still be in good position.I dont hold a high standard when it comes to golf clubs but i do expect some standard and i didnt see any here.
    Avoid this course.

    L.S. I'm trying to contact a group of golfplayers from Kilkenny . The group played in the region of Fuengirola in Spain, as on the Mijas-golfcourt and stayed in hotel Las Palmeras in Fuengirola. The name of one of the groupmembers is P.Kelly. If the persons of this group are members of your golfclub, would you be so kind to send me the (email-)adess of the contact. Thank you,

    We played this course on an absolutely miserable day in the end of October 2000 (rainy, windy and cold). The course was so wet that only 12 holes were open. Callan is a straightforward, relatively wide-open parkland layout. The greens and fairways were both quite long when we played, most likely due to the inability to cut the grass due to the rain. Otherwise the course was in good condition especially considering all the rain. The staff was quite nice and the membership most accommodating to a foursome of Americans crazy enough to play in a driving rainstorm. (Note - there were a number of Irish men and women as crazy as ourselves).
    Overall Callan is a nice course. However, as a parkland course it is similar to hundreds of American layouts. As such, unless one has an extra day to kill in the Kilkenny area, I would recommend that visiting Americans pass up Callan and most other Irish inland courses in favour of playing the numerous links courses along Ireland's coasts.
