Ballybunion - Old Course - Ireland

Ballybunion Golf Club Old Course
Hailed for its excellent links courses, Ballybunion is recognised for its fine development of the natural terrain. With large sand dunes and an Atlantic backdrop, Ballybunion offers the golfer an exciting round of golf in a scenically beautiful location.

After playing Ballybunion for the first time, a man would think that the game of golf originated here. Located on the Shannon estuary, it is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless and a course of sharp contours throughout. There appears to be no man- made influence. It looks like a course laid out on land back in the 10th century.There is a wild look to the place the long grass covering the dunes that pitch and roll throughout the course making it very intimidating. Yet the course is eminently fair. While there would appear to be a lot of blind shots, there aren't. Even where there are blind shots, you are given a good idea where you must hit the ball. The course doesn't fool you altogether!
