Plan Your Trip
Par 71, yardage 6,651. The Old Course at Ballybunion is one of the most popular courses in the whole of Ireland. American visitors in particular just love the course and five-time Open Champion Tom Watson is a self-confessed fan of Ballybunion. Established in 1893, the course was extended to 18 holes in 1926. Due to the threat of coastal erosion - it is set in sandhills alongside the Atlantic Ocean - the order of the holes was changed in the early 1970s and you now actually start on the old 14th. Visitors to Ballybunion will undergo a stiff test from start to finish, with the 11th hole, in particular, being a potential card-wrecker. Visitors are welcome on weekdays, while a state-of-the-art clubhouse offers first-class facilities.
Maximum handicap: 24 men, 30 women.
