Regarded by many as Ireland’s most famous links, and consistently rated among the finest courses in the world, Ballybunion Golf Club was founded in 1893 and features two traditional links golf courses – The Old Course & The Cashen Course. Both are unique in character, testing all aspects of shot making, especially the Lionel Hewson & Tom Simpson designed Old Course.
Situated in Southwest Ireland along the Atlantic Ocean in County Kerry, you’ll find the Old Course perched on a sandy cliff top, with narrow, contoured fairways winding through dunes and valleys with dramatic changes in elevation, and greens strategically positioned on mounds or carefully sheltered between sand dunes. Host to many famous tournaments over the years, this par 71 course measures over 6,800 yards through some of the most dramatic dunes in links golf…the Emerald Isle’s most beloved layout awaits you at, Ballybunion – The Old Course.
