A breathtaking challenge – the legendary Tom Watson described the glorious links at Ballybunion Golf Club as the best in the world. High praise indeed for this magnificent test of golf which meanders menacingly through massive dunes on the shores of the Atlantic.
The Old Course (Par 71, 6598 yards) consistently ranked as one of the worlds top ten golf courses, features a graveyard by the first tee, which some say is a warning to golfers who breeze through the first five holes only to come face to face with the ever changing 6th, the fiendish 8th, the daunting par four 11th and the devilishly tricky 15th.

Tralee Golf Club founded in 1980 is located 8 miles Northwest of Tralee town on the Barrow Peninsula. A sensational Arnold Palmer designed links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape. It lies on the Southwest coast of Ireland at the gateway to the Dingle and Fenit Peninsulas and is one of the world’s most scenic and spectacular true links golf courses. The magnificent beach and surrounds featured prominently in the epic film Ryan’s daughter on the gentler outward nine you will negotiate the 6th, 7th and 8th known locally as Palmer’s loop.
The back nine is a world of extraordinarily wild and massive dunes. The 12th hole is probably the most examining 2nd shot hole in golf where you are faced with a second shot to an elevated green with a deep ravine protecting the green. From the 14th tee, there is a breathtaking view of Banna Strand which is renowned in song and story. The downhill par three 16th and the doglegged 17th are two more outstanding holes. “I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course. I am happy we have one of the world’s great links.” Arnold Palmer

Waterville Golf Club founded in 1889 is located on the Ring of Kerry, approximately 1 mile from the village of Waterville and 50 miles from Killarney. Links land is a geological rarity, less than one percent of all the courses in Ireland and the British Isles are championship links, Waterville is one of these. After 80 years of play, the original nine hole course was redesigned by the famous Irish golf architect, Eddie Hackett and the late owner, John A. Mulcahy. Today Waterville is truly mystical.
The course gradually introduces the player to its special tempo and rhythm and concludes with a symphony of links beauty. Each hole at Waterville is a wonderful experience, with the 2nd and 3rd holes, both par fours, being particularly impressive. The par three, 17th is probably Waterville’s feature hole. Waterville is one of the finest links golf courses in the world, never mind Ireland.
The Links resort includes Waterville Golf Links, Waterville House, the Directors residence, and a four-star 18th-century manor. Guests enjoy preferential access to Golf Links and one of the finest salmon and sea trout fisheries in Ireland.
