Ballybunion Golf Courses Cashen & Old Course:
Ballybunion Golf Club Located on the north west coast of County Kerry on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Two wonderfully challenging and unique links golf courses at Ballybunion, the Old Course and the Castle.
The Old Course exudes a majestic feel that simply cannot be compared to any other course on earth. With beautifully contoured fairways that tumble down through a blanket of grassy dunes, it’s no wonder these challenging holes have been consistently rated among the top courses in the world.
The Trent Jones Cashen Course, located along the sweeping, undisturbed shoreline, offers breathtaking views throughout. There is a wild look to the place. Long grass covers the dunes that pitch and roll throughout the course.
Tralee Golf Club:
Tralee Golf Club is surrounded by the Atlantic, Tralee’s magnificent and challenging Arnold Palmer course offers incomparable views on all sides. Castles, distant islands, towering mountains and the beach.
Surrounded by the Atlantic, Tralee’s magnificent and challenging Arnold Palmer course offers incomparable views on all sides. Castles, distant islands, towering mountains and the beach that figured prominently in the film Ryan’s Daughter will captivate you.
Built by Arnold Palmer, this stunning setting represents a true paradise for those willing to challenge what is widely acclaimed as one of the finest links courses in Ireland. It comes as no surprise to learn that, due to the majestic beauty of this setting, Palmer chose it to be his first (and arguably finest) golf course in Europe. In addition to boasting a clear view of the Atlantic Ocean from every hole, Tralee’s magnificent and challenging course offers incomparable views on all sides.
Tralee has a fully qualified resident professional, fully stocked pro shop and a spacious and comfortable restaurant and bar. It has earned a reputation for having a most friendly and relaxed atmosphere among members and guests alike. As all the caddies are also members, it is not uncommon to find a caddie and guest sharing a pint and a couple of laughs in the comfort of the upstairs lounge after a round. A trip to south west Ireland for the accomplished golfer could not be complete without playing this most precious and unpretentious wonderland.
Dooks Golf Links:
Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889 and so it is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland. It was introduced to the local aristocracy by officers from the Royal Horse Artillery attending compulsory training at the nearby Glenbeigh Artillery Range.
Dooks Golf Links club is renowned for its friendliness and invites all its visitors to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the clubhouse. Even though it has been extensively remodelled, great care was taken to ensure it retained its old world charm and quirkiness. One can relax in the bar which was specially designed so that people at one end of the bar could speak to those at the other.
