The 36-holes of Ballybunion Golf Club are located by the Atlantic Ocean with fairways set amongst the gigantic duneland. Ballybunion is home to two worldclass links golf courses. These two traditional golf courses are both unique in character, testing all aspects of shot making.
The 18-hole Old Course (1893) was originally founded as a 12-hole course and extended to 18-holes in 1926. It became well known when it hosted the Irish Championship in 1937. The par 71 for men, 74 for ladies links course is a thrilling challenge and a supreme test of golf with many excellent holes. If there is a gentle breeze blowing you might try to play your handicap.
Length: Blue Tees 6,802 yards / White Tees 6,366 yards / Ladies Tees 5,475,
The Cashen Course (1984) was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. The par 72 links course in many ways is more irascible, more spectacular, more flirtatious, more brutal and more unforgiving and more difficult to tame than the Old Course. The dunes are higher, the valleys are deeper, the greens more undulating. The Cashen Course requires acute precision especially off the tee as fairways frequently disappear around corners.
Length: Blue Tees 6,318 / White Tees 5,945 / Ladies Tees 5,055 yards, Par: 72 Men & Ladies
Training facilities: Driving Range, Chipping Green with Bunkers and 2 Putting Greens located beside the clubhouse and a third putting green which is located near the 1st tee on the Cashen Course
