Ballybunion Golf Club is on the southwest coast of Ireland in County Kerry. It is home to not one, but two world-class links courses: The Old Course and The Trent Jones Cashen Course. For the keen golfer these offer a thrilling challenge, and for the holiday golfer they offer holes that are eminently playable and stunningly located.
Over the course of its 122 year history, Ballybunion has welcomed a host of professional golfers and celebrities, including Tom Watson and Bill Clinton. The distinguished American golfer Herbert Warren Wind described Ballybunion as “nothing less than the finest seaside course” he had ever seen.
Take a look for yourself: Ballybunion Golf Club is open to visitors between the 1st of May and the 2nd of October, and holds a variety of open days, charity cups, and competitions throughout the year. The club is just a short drive south from the historic town of Ballybunion, which is also home to an atmospheric 15th century castle.
Whether you want to take on the challenging 36 holes, or simply absorb the history and spectacular views of the wild Irish landscape, Ballybunion is a location that is not to be missed.
