Ballybunion Golf Club overview

Located in Southwest Ireland, Ballybunion Golf Club is situated amongst the dunes on the rugged Atlantic coastline. The club had a turbulent start to its life. Formed in 1893 as a 12-hole course it folded a few years later due to financial problems; reopening in 1906 as a 9-hole course before extending what is now the Old Course to 18-holes in 1926. The Cashen Course was added in 1982 to create an exceptional 36-hole facility.

These days golfers will find a warm welcome on arrival at the modern clubhouse with a restaurant plus two bars and well-stocked pro-shop offering plenty of logoed merchandise. Visitors also have complimentary use of the club’s practice facilities during their visit.

Golf Courses

Home to 36 holes of stunning links golf, Ballybunion Golf Club is a name recognized around the world, the Old Course has been wowing visitors for decades and is considered by many as the best in the Republic of Ireland. The much newer Cashen Course designed by Trent Jones Snr is also a great test, shorter in length but small greens, tight fairways and huge sand dunes create a tough challenge.

The Cashen Course at Ballybunion was designed by legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones Senior and opened its doors for play in 1984 making it over 90 years younger than its predecessor, Ballybunion Old Course. Although Jones built Cashen on the same undulating terrain as the Old Course, in many ways it is more beautiful and more challenging. It has the ocean on one side and the river on the other, creating a breathtaking landscape for an enjoyable game of golf.

Established in 1893, The Old Course at Ballybunion is a true seaside links course located on the Shannon Estuary. The course was originally founded as a 12-hole until it was extended to a full 18 in 1926. Despite its local popularity, the Old Course didn’t gain recognition until it hosted the Irish Championship in 1937. Prior to this event, Tom Simpson and Molly Gourlay made important alterations and amendments to improve the quality of the layout, and very little has been changed since.
