Ballybunion Golf Club


Carved from the earth, amid the dunes beside the ocean, the Old Course at Ballybunion features dramatic changes in elevation. It’s the most famous links in Ireland, in part because American professional Tom Watston, the five-time Open Champion, professed his love for the layout when he hoisted the Claret Jug in 1982. A natural, elemental design it is cut from the same cloth as Pebble Beach or St. Andrews, courses that needed only slight refinement by the hand of men.
