Ballybunion Golf Course
(The Old Course)

“If sheer pleasure is the yardstick, then Ballybunion’s Old Course gets my vote as the No.1 in the world.” – Peter Dobereiner, the famous English golf writer.

Dobereiner was doing no more than reflecting the views of the locals who somehow knew, through all of their struggles for survival since the day the club was founded way back in 1893, that the Ballybunion links was an unknown treasure waiting for the outside world to come and discover it.

Ballybunion Golf Course
(The Cashen Course)

It’s simple really. If the Cashen Course at Ballybunion Golf Club were situated anywhere else, rather than adjacent to the world-famous Old Course, it would attract far more attention and plaudits than it does.

Although built on similar, stirring terrain to the Old Course in the 1980s, in many ways ‘the Cashen’ is more irascible, more spectacular, more brutal and more unforgiving and more difficult to tame than its older, more celebrated sibling.

Nine Daughters Hole

Nine daughters is one eye-sight you will almost never forget nor experience anywhere you go, it takes in the ever lasting view of the Atlantic Ocean at its very best, the coastline of Co Clare straight ahead, to your left the Brandon Mountains, Slea head, to your right the inland shore line, passing Bromore Cliffts, Dooneen Cliffts, leading to the Mouth of the River Shannon, with untouched coastline for over 50 Kms, also taking in part of the Atlantic Way.

People travel from all over the world to take in the beauty that is the Nine Daughters hole.
