Cashen Course, Ballybunion
- Course Class
- Course Type
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior and opened in 1982. ‘The Cashen’ is more irascible, more spectacular, more flirtatious, more brutal and more unforgiving and more difficult to tame than her older, more famous sibling. In a strong wind, ‘The Cashen’ verges on being impossible – dunes are higher, valleys are deeper and the greens more undulating. The links changes mood unrecognizably from one day to the next. The Cashen Course requires acute precision especially off the tee as fairways frequently disappear around corners. The careless can easily run out of fairway and find their golf ball buried in marram. It’s a wonderful challenge from start to finish.
