“Ballybunion is a course on which many golf architects should live and play before they build courses” Tom Watson

Why we love it

Ballybunion Golf Club has been the home of Irish golf since 1893. Home to two wonderfully challenging and unique links courses, Ballybunion on the South West Coast of Ireland is consistently ranked in Golf Magazine's Top 100 Golf Courses in the World. Towering sand dunes, perilously narrow fairways and long stretches of Atlantic coastline make this beautiful location a must for all golfing enthusiasts.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy two rounds of golf at Ballybunion Golf Club for two people
  • Play both the historic Old Course and the modern Cashen Course
  • Indulge in a two night stay in a double or twin room at a 4* hotel near the course
  • Golf in style with a personal caddy each on the Old Course
  • Handicap required men; maximum 24, ladies; maximum 36

Description

Acclaimed as one of the finest seaside links courses - second only to the eponymous St. Andrews - the historic Ballybunion golf course is a rare treat for any golfer as part of this Ireland golf break, no matter how well-seasoned.

Standing on the first tee, the fresh sea breeze blowing in your hair, the expansive fairways wind across the hills and dunes, as if they were a natural part of the landscape. Indeed, world famous PGA legend Tom Watson once said it was hard to believe that the game of golf wasn't born on these majestic Irish shores.

The Old Course at Ballybunion was first founded in 1893 and has been tested and tinkered by some of the world's best renowned golfers to become the thrilling challenge that it is today. In fact, the course is so sacred that buggies and trolleys have been banned. No matter though, because we're providing you with the finest local caddies to help you tame this wild beast.

Presenting what some call an even greater challenge is the new Cashen Course. Built in 1982 on the same stirring landscape, the course is shorter than her older sibling. However, with higher dunes, deeper valleys and fairways that disappear aroundécorners without warning, only the most precise players will be rewarded with a decent score.

Without a doubt, after a hard day out on either Ballybunion course, you'll have earned a relaxing night in one of our cosy, handpicked hotels on this Ireland golf break gift.
