The Old course is a breath taking course that who first opening was in 1893 under the name “The Golf Links of Kerry”. Unfortunately due to financial difficulties the course closed in 1898 and was not re-opened until 1906 which is when it took the name Ballybunion Golf Club. For the next few decades the course grew in reputation and in 1926 the course was set to extend to a full 18. This proved to be a great success and in 1932 the Irish Ladies Championship was help at Ballybunion Golf Course. Following the success of this championship a number of other high profile events were held at the course including its first professional championship in 1957.

Course Info

The courses fame really took off in the 1960’s and has since hosted some of the legends of the game including Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. The flood gates really opened for international visitors when Tom Watson referenced the course in his Open Victory speech in 1982. The club have always been welcoming to those who make the journey to this wonderful part of Ireland.
The course itself measures at 6,739 yards from the back tees but panic not as there are tees to suit all abilities, so everybody can enjoy this wonderful place. As you would expect from an Irish links course the scenery in as dramatic as it is picturesque. You will find yourself wandering through the sand dunes gazing out to sea drinking in the surroundings. Just after the turn you will hit the iconic 11th hole which is affectionately known as Watsons, this is a gorgeous par 4 down that runs down the beach to a raised green surrounded by run off areas. You will need to take a deep breath and focus to walk off with a par 4 here.
