Old Head Golf Links - Ireland

Old Head Golf Links
Old Head Golf Links is built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic; the promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course.

The links and practice area occupy 180 acres and the remaining 40 acres of unspoilt cliff frame the course and rise in places to over 300 sfeet.

Comprising of five par 5's, five par 3's and eight par 4's, the links stretches to over 7,200 yards from the tips and with a minimum of six tees on every hole, the course provides a stern test to the touring pro and high handicapper alike.

Nine holes play along the cliff tops, and all eighteen holes provide stunning ocean views. The 360-degree vistas will distract you, but do not relax too much as the ever-changing sea breezes will challenge you at every turn of this par-72 layout.

The following personalities were involved in the creation of Old Head: the late Joe Carr, Paddy Merrigan, Ron Kirby, the late Eddie Hackett, Liam Higgins and Haulie O'Shea.
