The new owner of the K Club in Co Kildare is to rename the golf course which bears the name of its founder, Michael Smurfit, as part of an investment and rebranding programme.

Michael Davern, the resort’s chief executive, told the Business Post that the Smurfit course, the smaller of the 550-acre estate’s two golf courses, would be rebranded as the Straffan Golf Course and Club within months.
