Where2Golf says: 

Beaufort Golf Club: set amongst 200-year-old trees, 15th-century castle ruins, rolling meadows and occasional ponds, this parkland course lays down an enjoyable golfing challenge. Beaufort's relatively easy-going layout also offers many wonderful views onto Macgillycuddy's Reeks, the impressive mountain range that lies just a few kilometres to the south.

Circling around the clubhouse on three sides, the layout has a generally open feel. The presence of fir trees and gorse bushes also provide some distinctly heathland overtones to much of the course. These more recent plantings have narrowed the generous space that used to be available for most tee-shots. The back-nine continues the relatively open parkland/heathland environment of the front-nine, with the remains of 15th-century Castle Corr standing sentinel over a tough and water-threatened closing stretch.

One rather thick wall of the castle's high-tower remains to lend a touch of antiquity to Beaufort's back-nine, but perhaps your full attention will not be so much on things historical, as much on the layout's testing closing trio of par-4s. Ponds threaten your tee shots on the leftside of each of these closing holes.
