Killeen Castle, venue for the 2011 Solheim Cup has launched an Under 30’s membership programme with the help of some top sports stars.

Golfing sensations, Lisa & Leona Maguire, who regularly practice on the Jack Nicklaus course and recently competed in the AIB Ladies Irish Open at Killeen Castle, launched the Juvenile Membership category aimed at 12-18 year olds. Alongside the twins, Irish and Leinster rugby stars Rob Kearney and Eoin Reddan pitched in to launch the Under 30’s Membership offer targeting 18 – 30 year olds. Some of the country’s top rugby stars utilise Killeen Castle for some time-out from their busy rugby schedule as part of Killeen Castle’s partnership with IRUPA (Irish Rugbmaguires kearney reddon killeen castley Union Players Association).

Killeen Castle is fast becoming one of the most talked about golf clubs in the country and in addition to the visit of Solheim Cup Captain Alison Nicholas and her two vice-captains, Annika Sorenstam and Joanne Morley; the course has had some high profile visitors in the past week. Nick Faldo dropped in to check out the surroundings on route to an event at Lough Erne last week while US Open Champion Graeme McDowell spent three days practicing at the club ahead of sinking the winning putt at the Ryder Cup.
