President Bill Clinton and professional golfer Tom Watson have played Ballybunion Golf Club, one of the best link courses in the world. Though its location in southeastern Ireland makes it a difficult course to get to, many think the natural beauty of this golf destination makes the trip worth it. This historic club was founded in 1893 and offers two courses, the Old Course and Cashen Course. The Old Course was home to the Irish Open of the 2000 European Tour. You can book a day to play on one or both of these two famous courses.

  • Absolutely beautiful golf course- the only negative is the condition of the new greens. Once they bed in properly it will be on a par with the best in the country
  • My favorite round of golf I've ever played. What a beautiful place. And I did OK, on my first time there, somehow. The golf gods don't take prisoners, but sometimes, they smile on us, and they gave us this place.
  • I returned from Ireland Aug. 15th, after being there for 9 days and playing 8 golf courses. At Ballybunion Mr. Thomas Moore was my Caddie and he made my experience there exceptional. His knowledge was very helpful and we enjoyed our conversations as well. It is a Beautiful course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. (Eugene Hinderer)
