Founded in 1893, Ballybunion Golf Club is located on the north-west coast of County Kerry on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There are two wonderfully challenging and unique links golf courses at Ballybunion, the Old Course and the Castle.
The Old Course exudes a majestic feel that simply cannot be compared to any other course on earth. With beautifully contoured fairways that tumble down through a blanket of grassy dunes, it’s no wonder these challenging holes have been consistently rated among the top courses in the world. The Cashen Course, located along the sweeping, undisturbed shoreline, is more rugged and offers breathtaking views throughout. There is a wild look to the place with long grass covering the dunes throughout the course.
The Old Course requires shot-making, placement and trajectory control. The Cashen Course requires acute precision especially off the tee as fairways frequently disappear around corners. Knowledgeable golfers realize that if they haven’t played golf at Ballybunion, their golfing education is gravely incomplete.
Whatever your choice of course, every hole, every hazard and every shot is defined by nature’s infinite presence.
