COURSE DESCRIPTIONA 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.
Ballybunion Golf Club actually boasts two separate courses. The Old Course (Par 71, 6,598 yards) and the Cashen Course (Par 72, 6,306 yards), which was created by golf architect, Robert Trent Jones Senior.
The Old Golf Course, consistently ranked as one of the world's 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 challenging 6th, the fiendish 8th, the daunting par four 11th and the devilishly tricky 15th.
