Ballybunion: Old Course
This one never gets Old

Originally designed in 1893, the Old Course at Ballybunion began to gain notoriety after famous architect Tom Simpson got his hands on it in 1936 and took the course to the next level. This classic links-style design is visually stunning and features incredible ocean vistas, difficult pot bunkers throughout, fast firm fairways, and difficult greens creating a test of golf that you are sure to love.
