Old Links, Ballyliffin Golf Club
Ballyliffin is home to two excellent links courses, Old links and Glashedy Links, which are beautifully interwoven with the surrounding landscape. We’d highly recommend playing the two during your stay.
This superb course features beautiful fairways that roll through wild dunes to create an incredibly undulating layout. It helps to have good balance, as you'll rarely find a flat lie, which adds another testing dimension to this fantastic course. The course has recently undergone a renovation by Faldo Design, making subtle changes to tee positions and the bunkers, to improve its playability and enhance the surrounding beauty.
The 5th hole will live long in the memory, as the 190 yard par 3 uses an elevated green surrounded by dunes to intimidate even the lowest handicappers.
